THE BEST DOCTOR!!! Dr Bassani saved my son's life. He successfully removed a large brain tumor from my 3 1/2 year old. He is almost fully recovered in just 3 months. Dr Bassani is extremely compassionate and knowledgeable.

Extremely caring and compassionate doctor. Spent hours, days, and weeks caring for my child, who had a ruptured Brain AVM. With his knowledge, expertise, and love for children, he gave my child a second chance to regain neurological and congnitive function and make tremendous strides in rehab.
