Patient Comments (3)
Dr Bass Wilkins is a highly skilled surgeon. Her knowledge is demonstrated through her use of evidence-based surgical techniques. She utilizes every possible means to prevent post-op infections and blood clots. I recovered well from my colon surgery without complication. Dr Wilkins has a most solicitous and knowledgeable staff available for all aspects of patient/client needs. I highly recommend Dr Wilkins.

Horrible job with my surgery. Sorry I trusted her. Now have more issues. Followup care was awful. Looking for another surgeon to correct this.
Rahway, NJ |
Cold, impersonal, does not listen to patient concerns or fears
