Worst bedside manner ever. Dealing with pre term labor he won't acknowledge. Laboring now, but not enough for enough change to admit. Just shy of 36 weeks. Told me I needed to leave because he has other patients with "real" issues. He is very arrogant. I will be filing a formal complaint with my insurance and the hospital. Complaint was already made to the nurse who was present for his treatment. I would not take my worst enemy to him.
Dr bass is a good doctor has handled all of my situations well would recomend him to anyone

Dr. Bass has a horrible bedside manner. He is arrogant and knows about everything. I went in for my annual pap and also help with my menopause. Dr.Bass did not believe I was in menopause (even though I had not had a period for 8 months. I asked about some kind of hormone to help with hot flashes and sweats. At the end of the appointment, he asks me "do you want hormones or not?" I told him he was the doctor, what did he recommend. Long story short he gave me prempro. more but out of space
