I do not like going to see doctors at all. Dr Bassel was so very kind. she had what you call good bedside manners. I trust her and believe in her. She made me feel very comfortable when I was experiencing unknown sickness and a little bit of fear. All of her staff were kind people.I highly recommend Dr Bassel.
