First time seeing him or any voice specialist. An absolutely phenomenal experience. Dr. Bastian's reputation is well earned. If anything, it is understated. Knowledgeable, kind, educational, and understanding. He's a great doctor, he's an even better teacher. Not sure how anyone could really provide a better experience. No, we are not related, and no, he did he not pay me to say any of this. :-).
