I enjoy getting to sit down and talking with my patients. I’m constantly reminding myself that while it’s very routine for me because I’ve done these things many times, it’s not routine for my patients.

I CAN NOT say ENOUGH great things about this amazing doctor! I was truly amazed by her patience, knowledge, expertise, professionalism, and ability to put my nerves at ease! (Not an easy task when you get diagnosed with malignant melanoma). She went above and beyond and had impeccable customer service! She performed a excision surgery....... and I was floored at how beautifully the scar healed.... seriously I have NEVER liked a doctor this much in my 45 years! Make an appt TODAY! OBSESSED??

I have a history of sin cancer, and as a result, visit a dermatologist every six months to be examined from head to toe. I visited Dr. Basak for the first time earlier this week. I found Dr. Basak to be very friendly, caring, and, most importantly, very thorough during the examination. I have no doubt that she is extremely competent in this medical field and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs the services of a dermatologist.

Dr. Basak and her assistant Jill performed MOHS surgery on my nose. They surgically removed a basil cell skin cancer from my nose and reconstructed my nose back to its original shape. They were very professional, caring and helpful in explaining every step of the process and making sure that I was agreeable with each step of the process. I felt that I was in very good hands throughout the process which took about 4-hours total. I am grateful for the excellent care I received from them.
