I went from being crippled for six months and I saw Dr. Basra he said that I needed surgery but he wanted to be prudent with my treatment he suggested injections and they didn't work so going into surgery with Dr Basra I absolutely believed that I would find relief his bedside manner is second to none I owe him my life and the ability to walk again and I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Basra to everyone that has a back condition.

I was very impressed by Dr. Basra and his office staff. I called to make an appointment for an upper back pain and was scheduled with an appointment the next day. When I arrived for my appointment I was happily greeted by the front desk staff. Dr. Basra has great bed side manner. He seemed concerned about my problem and very easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend Dr. Basra as I have a positive experience with him and his staff.

I have stage 3 bone cancer & it deteriorated my mid back area T12. I went to the ER & they referred me to Dr Sushil Basra & he immediately sent me for extensive testing. He diagnosed me right away, had a plan of action. He was thorough he called me himself & scheduled surgery right away due to the severity of my condition Dr. Basra wasted no time. The surgery was successful he made my excrutiating pain go away. His bed side manner is the top! He is a life saver & I highly recommend him!
