Irving, TX |
Dr. Basavaraju used to care a few years ago but lately all of the visits I've gone to are a waste of time. I get absolutely NO help when I come in for pain and odd symptoms.

Dr B has been great with both my Allergy and Fibromyalgia treatments. It was great to have 1 doctor for both of my major ailments. She also provided great referrals for other questions that I had as well.
