Dr. Bass is a very good doctor. He takes time to listen.

February 22, 2018

the hour and half in waiting room was very unpleasant

February 22, 2018

Dr. Bass is one of my all-time favorite physicians. He is down-to-earth but incredibly knowledgeable. He takes as much time as needed to listen to my concerns and provides reasonable and informative responses. While it sometimes takes longer than 15 minutes wait time to be seen by him, I don't mind because he is an excellent, thoughtful doctor and I'm sure he is giving other patients the same consideration he gives to me. That makes it worth any wait. I can't say enough good things about him.

I was seeing another practicioner within the office, whom I was very unhappy with. When I was able to start seeing Dr. Bass, I discovered why he has such an excellent reputation. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience.

February 08, 2018

I am very pleased with my care from Dr. Bass and UPMC overall. I will continue to see him when the agreement expires, even though I will have to pay out of pocket. I have recommended him to my family and friends.

February 01, 2018

Always a pleasure to visit with Dr. Bass. Thoroughly INTO his patients. A GREAT CREDIT to the profession.

January 31, 2018

very attentive and aware of health concerns

January 31, 2018

I don't recall ever having a bad experience with this care provider. It does not bother me when I am not seen within 15 minutes of my appointment time with Dr. Bass. He has always taken whatever time is required to ensure that I understand everything, and I'm sure he does the same for his other patients.
