Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Bass is amazing. I had right wrist surgery several years ago and have had no problems. A few years later suffered a gunshot wound to left hand to one of my fingers. Was rushed to hospital were 1st Dr attempted to save my finger. Horrible experience, went to Dr. Bass and recommended amputating...more

Dr Bass is an excellent doctor! He performed trigger finger release on three of my fingers. I was very satisfied with the outcome on all fingers. He did an awesome job, very minimal pain and recovery. Haven't had any problems since my surgeries, I highly recommend Dr Bass.

Worst bedside manner I have ever experienced. Didn't shake my hand, blamed me for my injury, and exited without a definite plan. See his partner or someone else.

My personal experience is he doesn't really engage w/ patients by encouraging questions or conversation about the patient's condition or concerns.
