This ear , Nose, and throat Doctor is very nice. I know he is elderly, but I hope he will keep on working. He really seems like a nice man and a good listener. A lot of Doctors just don't listen to their patients. He does.

Dr Bassett recently performed surgery on my nose and throat. Before deciding on surgical treatment, he was thorough in explaining the procedures and possible issues to be aware of. He is very professional and took the time to answer any questions or concerns that I had. I felt very comfortable under his care. Both procedures had successful outcomes. I highly recommend him.

Doctor did the same basic exam as my PCP and came up with the same 'I dunno what's wrong,' response. Instead of doing any follow ups or tests that might give more information like my PCP was expecting, I was told to just keep taking ibuprofen and lozenges and come back if my throat gets worse... I've been doing that for nearly 4 months now. Worse than that, however, was that I did not realize the doctor was NOT wearing gloves until he was literally holding my tongue in his hand. He didn't wash his hands before or after. Are you serious?! Now, in a pandemic, that's the level of care?! What the hell. This is the only ENT in Spokane County that accepts Amerigroup through the state. It's not like I can just go somewhere else. I'm so upset and frustrated, and now I am DEEPLY concerned about the possibility of COVID-19. Bare handed.... I can't believe this... He and the nurse were very nice, though, so there's that.
