Dr Bassett has always been personable, and would highly recommend him! We have gone to him for several years now, and he always takes good care of his patients. He recommended a doctor for the Cochlear, and we couldn't have had better care between Dr Bassett and Dr Cassis. We are thankful we have Dr Bassett
