We had to wait over an hour and 30 minutes past our appointment time. I find that not being thoughtful of the other patients. Since we come from out of town and we were there on time, it was discouraging to have to wait that long.

Dr bass is amazing. I've been suffering with pain for years and thought I was just "getting old". I'm only 42. he validated what I have been experiencing and provided clarity and potential for treatment.

Dr Bass always listens to me about my medical issues. He is pleasant and helpful. Would recommend him to anyone.

Dr Bass is an extremely knowledgeable and well respected physician. He is very gentle and patient and provides excellent care. However he should be permitted to schedule patients at lengthier intervals. He sees a variety of complicated cases and should be afforded the opportunity to see them with less time constraints.

This was my first visit with Dr Bass. I was so impressed and completely satisfied. I quite frankly fell in love with him! He gave me all the time I needed and never looked at his watch. I feel he will be the perfect advocate for me and my health issues.
