She is always so helpful. She listens and it's so obvious she sincerely cares about her patients. And she had my condition under control and diagnosed correctly which has eliminated any more flare ups. Dr Bassel was a great find for me. It's a mouse maze trying to find a good dr and I was referred to her by a friend. And you also don't get stuck waiting forever in her waiting room. She's excellent

Dr. Bassel is the best but dealing with the office staff has never been easy. It seems to be getting better but they aren't there yet. Trying to get in touch with Dr. Bassel outside of the office is next to impossible, and I can't stand the web portal.
