I had a great experience with Dr. Basa and staff from my very first office visit to my final post-op surgery visit. Dr. Basa was very informative and took the time to answer all my questions. Her kindness and patience helped relieve the anxiety I was feeling leading up to my hernia surgery. My recovery went extremely well and that is saying a lot since I have had six prior abdominal surgeries. My mother was also a patient of Dr. Basa’s seven years ago and she was just as kind and patient with my mom has she was to me. She is a GREAT doctor and surgeon!!

I used to work at a bariatric office in Las Vegas so had some expectations when looking for a doctor to perform my surgery. I went to a seminar at cedar park regional medical center and did not really connect with the doctor who gave the speech. After checking online reviews I came across Dr. Basa’s name. She had high reviews and was connected with Center of Excellence which is what I was looking for. I am on my way to my surgery soon and am extremely happy with my choice in surgeons. I appreciate the staff and the doctor as they have all been welcoming, kind and helpful in the path to surgery.

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!

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!
