Dr. Bassett’s office took abundant precaution during the COVID-19 outbreak and made me feel more comfortable coming into the office. Once there, Dr. Bassett was thorough and communicative, finding additional issues my previous OS missed. The entire staff was courteous and welcoming under very challenging conditions.

Dr. Bassett is my hero. I was referred to him with terrible hip and thigh pain on one side earlier this year. I was a voracious walker/hiker and at age 77 I suddenly had a hard time walking - when I did, it was with a limp and was painful. Diagnosis was arthritis. In my case, hip replacement for the best result to get back where I was. Shots, could alleviate the pain, but it would come back. Had surgery in July and in two weeks I was walking the neighborhood without any aid. My Primary Care Doc said Dr. Bassett was the best in town and he has certainly proved that to me. Dr. Bassett is personable, listens and answers questions. Now two months out and I'm ready for the trails with no pain. Thank you Dr. Bassett.

I do not recommend him. Discharge while still having pain, told me he didn't know what was wrong. Well MRI I paid for sure showed what was wrong. Told me to use my private insurance to go see specialtist when he knew darn well my insurance wouldn't pay for it and I thought he was the specialist? Save yourself the heartache and just head to Phoenix.
