For the first time in six years, I have a diagonsis! And a path to relief of this crazy cough. I had to fly half way across the country, but well worth it. I recommend that anyone with an enexplained cough, do yourself, friends, family and co-workers a favor and see Dr. Bastian.

I am a newer patient here and I can tell you nowhere have I been treated better. From the front office staff to the PAs to Dr Bastian himself everyone treats me like I am the only patient.

I haven’t had a voice in almost 3 months. Doctor Bastian scooped me and immediately saw that it was a functionality problem, even said that I would be walking out with some voice SAME DAY! I cried when I heard my voice again! Doc said that it will more than likely be up and talking again in NO time at all, and would be totally cured by next appointment. I’m so excited right now I cant even describe it!

Dr. Bastian and his staff are fabulous. His exceptional knowledge and unsurpassed skills are incredible. His “bedside” manner is superbly comforting and reassuring! I am so grateful for his talent that corrected both chronic and acute conditions that no other physician diagnosed or treated correctly. He is a blessing!

Dr. B. is FANTASTIC! HIGHLY skilled and patient focused! He’s not only at the top of his game, he also cares about his patients and what their voice means to their life and profession. I did my research and went with him even when I had to self pay. Office staff is also great! Highly helpful. You get what you pay for!

I have seen Dr. Bastian for over ten years. Twice I have had to go to other doctors for various reasons (once was out of state), and both times the new doctor said, “Robert Bastian? Why are you here? You should go back to see him.” The office and staff are routinely wonderful, the office and it’s location is beautiful. No better option.

Dr. Bastian is the most wonderful physician. I’ve been seeing him for over 15 years and he always fits me in the schedule when I am sick and solves the sever cough every single time. He is an expert on intermittent and chronic problems to the larynx. I wholeheartedly recommend him.
