I felt I wasn’t heard. Been twice for the same problem and I don’t want to continue to use nose spray for the rest of my life.

Dr Bassett is an excellent ENT. He is a patient listener and asks probing questions re: symptoms and health. He is informative and practical in follow up care. In my case he is always consulting with other providers for full and complete care plans.

Our family worked closely with Dr. Bassett for 5 years while we struggled with my daughters ears and hearing. He was amazing and I truly believe he cared about my child. He went above and beyond, calling me after hours to communicate with me. We have developed a great relationship with him during those 5 years and it’s bitter sweet that we no longer need his services.

I had a plugged and crackling ear for two months. Doctor Bassett examined my ears, nose and throat, cross referenced my hearing test and determined there was not anything observably wrong. His examination was thorough, but there was no diagnosis. He called me two days later after hours to suggest other possible issues I look into, which was above and beyond his call to duty. His care exceeded my expectations even though he didn’t determine a diagnosis and treatment plan.

I am incredibly lucky to have received a referral to Dr. Bassett. He diagnosed my cancer and managed my case over 5 months. I believe this diagnoses saved my life. He has a wonderful personality that puts you at ease. He always explained everything and answered all of my questions. His staff was also amazing. The office is always busy but you wouldn't know it by the way you are treated here. It really made all of the appointments and surgery easier to handle because I liked and trusted everyone.

In my old age, I am seeing several doctors. Dr Bassett is by far the nicest, friendliest doctor of them all. He knows what he is doing and he does it well. I would recommend him anytime.
