Dr Basa is the most compassionate, professional, dedicated Dr I have ever been to for anything. She did my Gastric Bypass about 5 years ago and has helped me every step of the way. There are not enough words to adequately describe how highly I recommend her and her practice. She is a blessing in the medical field!

Dedicated and efficient service with a smile. I was left high and dry when True Results went out of business and stole my money. It’s a relief to find reprieve with Dr. Basa. Thanks for keeping patient needs at the forefront of your practice. I highly recommend CPB for all your bariatric needs.

It's been nearly a year since I had the VSG, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy. I feel a million times better, a constant work in progress and so happy I made this choice. Absolutely 0 regrets. I know that CPB underwent a few staff changes over the year but their level of care and commitment never dropped. I have no had a 12 month post op follow up but I am doing amazing and I know that they are just a phone call away!

Friendly but thorough as she wants to make sure not only do you fully understand the weight loss procedure but the need to stay hydrated.

Before I went through a Gastric Sleep Surgery, I doubt about it for more than I year. I was scared because I think this was dangerous and risky. When I spoke with Dr. Bassa, she gave me the security and confidence to start the process. After 10 years with diets, loss weigh medications and any possible sickness relate to the obesity… I think I am on the right path for a healthy and happier life.

Dr. Basa is awesome! I had a Gastric Sleeve procedure with her on June 16, 2017. I have amazingly had absolutely no issues with it. She and her staff are very comprehensive with the pre-work, preparing you for the procedure and then offer excellent follow-up care. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and has great bedside manners. Her office is easy to set appointments with and contact for questions. I highly recommend Cedar Park Surgeons if you are considering a bariatric surgery.

As a nurse, I looked for an office and surgeon that was willing to go above and beyond. Dr. Basa is an amazing surgeon and really takes the time to listen and explain. After my surgery, I had to call the office with a concern and Dr. Albando personally called me back. He was very down to earth and willing to what was needed. The entire staff is kind and treats you like family. Jessica, the dietician, is very knowledgeable and dedicated to what she does. I love her encouragement and education. Yo

Dr. Basa has helped three members of my family. My husband needed a skin tag removed, which she did, in-office, my daughter received weight loss guidance (down 85lbs without surgery) and I am currently receiving weight loss services through their Ideal Protein meal plan. I am down 25lbs in 5 weeks! I highly recommend Dr. Basa and her team for your surgical and weight loss needs!

Dr. Basa and her staff are so friendly and professional. They have been readily available for all of my questions, and have worked with me to get my procedure scheduled quickly. I met with a few other offices and this one far exceeds my expectations.

Dr. Basa is an extraordinary physician. She is very compassionate towards her patients. She treats you like you are her only patient(which says alot because she is a busy doc) she listens to everything you have to say. I have been to doctors who just want to write you and prescription and have you on your way. NOT Dr. Basa! I could go on and on why she is a great doc but there isnt enough room on here. Bottom line you want to be treated right Go see Dr. Basa!

Dr. Basa has completely changed my life. She is so professional and easy to work with. The staff is very courteous and friendly. The program was very easy to go through and they are available for any questions you might have. I would not change anything about my journey with Dr. Basa!!!!

Not enough characters: ADA issues; did not look at any provided medical history; brought a student in with her without seeking permission first; was unaware of ADA limitations I had, etc.... She very nice, clearly knows HER stuff, but very little about other conditions that impact this procedure.

My daughter is a patient of Dr. Basa. Dr. Basa and her staff were courteous and informative. We have emailed back and forth with the office staff. They are very prompt and helpful. On my daughter's first visit, Dr. Basa was tied up with another patient so we waited a little extra. But her staff kept checking on us, offering us water, and then the coordinator went ahead and did her part so we wouldn't have to do it after the physician visit. We are all very pleased with the service!
