I have been seeing Dr. Bassel for almost 15 years. She is always pleasant, helpful, and understanding. She listens well & wants to know about your other health problems and your life in general, not just your gastrointestinal issues. She educates you about your (possible) conditions, your workup, and your treatment options.
