Dr.Basta spent a lot of time with my husband and me . He gave us a wonderful explanation of everything that was indicated on my MRI and the possible solution and the realities of the results of the surgery that is the solution. This was my 3rd visit in 6 years the other 2 times he told me my problem was not bad enough to do surgery and we did other treatment. As I have aged it continued to worsen and now surgery is necessary. I appreciate the fact he gave me 6 more years before having major surgery.

Dr Basta was very informative in details of my brain tumor. He answered all my questions. He will not operate unless he has to , I like that due to the type of tumor that I have. He explained everything that I needed to know. He did not rush me out of the room. I feel that he cares about his patients and he listens to them . His staff is very efficient in ordering my exams. I have been very pleased .

Dr. Basta is very friendly and open and down-to-earth. He made me feel more relaxed with my visit. He provided a great deal of information to help me with the decision whether or not to pursue surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr Bosta.

This was my first experience with back surgery and with Dr. Basta. In all honesty, Dr. Basta, his staff and my experience the day of my surgery at Research Hospital exceeded all my expectations. I walked out of the hospital the afternoon of my surgery pain free. Other staff members that I would like to thank include: Lisa (RN) who is Dr. Basta's surgical nurse; Ann & Josh (RNs?) in the OR; Joan (RN) during my initial hospital check-in process; and Kate (RN) who cared for me in Post-Op recovery. 'Home run, everybody. Thank you and God bless.

I was very scared and apprehensive about having back surgery period, but after talking to Dr. Basta he laid it out with what to expect what the complication could be and the recovery time. He is easy to talk to, down to earth and tells you how it is in plain English. I would recommend Dr. Basta very highly. His staff is exceptional and always there to answer questions.
