Despite some of his negative reviews on here for his bedside manners I have to tell you guys and share that he was the complete opposite with me. He was very compassionate and understanding of my situation in pain. He help me come up with all possible solutions and all possible out comes. I seen him for a second opinion on a sacroiliac joint fusion. He was straightforward and honest about everything. He made me feel very comfortable and confident that he knew what he was talking about.

At first I wasn't sure of Dr. Bassowitz's attitude, but as I got to know him, I found him direct, never talked down to me, answered all my questions. He and his assistant were very caring during my hospitalization.
