Patient Comments (3)
Dr Bass is a caring, knowledgeable physician. However, it is very frustrating to wait more than an hour past your appointment time for him to see you.
Springfield, IL |
I said the topical anesthesia didn't even numb my sinus to begin with, but he stil shoved a dry probe down my sinus 35 minutes later, after having 3 teen girls trying to fix the scoping machine without him. I screamed in pain for 10 minutes, begging for more numbing. He told me to quiet down. No extra numbing which was just cheap nasal squirts I guess he'd rather not take the time to re-admiinister. It was like punishment for complaining that I wasn't still numb after machine didn't work

Dr. Bass was very kind, patient and knowledgeable. He was able to diagnose my problems immediately.
