Had total knee replacement in both knees. Dr. Bassett did a great job! Very professional. Only suggestion is to raise the restroom facility for post-op patients.

Oct 2016. Could not get past the receptionist to make an appointment. Had a femoral neck fracture year and a half ago (3 screws) causing me pain and needed Dr. to evaluate. Receptionist said could not do that since it wasnt the original surgery.
in Alamo, TX |
timely service, even on Saturday by Dr. Bassett himself.

I HAD A TOTAL RIGHT KNEE REPLACEMENT He was very kind and explained every detail. This was a comfortable and relaxing experience. My scar is so thin and straight and hardly noticeable.
in Raymondville, TX |
I had both hips replaced by Dr. Bassett, done a month apart. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Bassett and his entire staff, including the 6th floor at VBMC. Dr. Bassett took his time at our initial visit to explain the entire process. We were not rushed and all of our questions were answered. We could not have had a better experience anywhere. I highly recommend Dr. Bassett and his staff for your knee and hip replacement needs.
