Dr. Bass is always so welcoming and friendly. She is very understanding to what is going on in my life and she is genuinely concerned for my welfare. She asks about personal matters which could affect me and she also is so easy to talk to about everyday issues. Dr. Bass is worth the wait to see her. :)

everything is computerized, and at times there is a need to look outside the box, from experience and wisdom of others. no resolution was made nor any further testing to solve the problem. providers are now relying on the computer questions to diagnose rather than their expert knowlyedge and research needed to solve many complex issues.

Dr. Bass and her staff sre one of the most friendliest, caring individusld I have ever had. Dr. Bass is even very quick to respond to questions via the BSW portal. She and her staff are the very reason I drive over 90 miles to continue my care with her. After moving to Tyler area 3 yrs ago, there is none here in the area that I am willing to give Dr. Bass up for. Her genuine caring and professionalism is beyond measure.
