      Dr. Basile is a patient, kind man with a great bedside manner! He explains everything about your condition and answers questions you may have. Dr. Basile is not in a rush to finish with you and get on to the next patient. I would recommend him to friends and family.

      Dr. Basile listened to my problems and then exsamined me thoroughly. I felt he had a sincere interest in doing the best for my problem . He reassured me that he was going to help me and I left the office feeling optimistic and happy. His nurse was gentle as she realized how nervous I was just being there. It was a very good visit and I will spread the word when indicated. was

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Basile says...

      30 years of a busy general and vascular surgery practice has given great insight into the  more modern diagnosis of vein diseases and up-to-date treatment.  The revolutionary advances in technology now allow us to diagnose and treat venous disease more accurately and with multiple MINIMALLY invasive methods that provide better outcomes, and much less pain and downtime than ever before. Almost all procedures are performed in the office setting with local anesthesia, and without need for hospitalization.
