Dr Bass is very good he understands and he is very thorough and making sure your health is very much taken care of I have a left foot and he has been working and trying to make sure he could find out what's wrong with it he has referred me to another doctor and his building

Dr. Bass has been my rheumatologist and/or PCP for 28+ years who always spends plenty of time with me --never feel rushed

July 17, 2017

Dr. Bass is an extremely good listener, and he provides thoughtful comments. Other physicians I use have their own agenda and don't always listen to what I am saying or what my concerns are, especially when it comes to prescription use.

July 06, 2017

Dr. Bass is a very concerned, caring doctor. He is very easy to talk to and explains all of your questions and concerns. I am very happy with him and his staff.

Dr Bass has been the most caring, patient, and kind rhuemtoid doctor I have seen. I appreciate that he takes his time, listens to my questions, doesn't hurry me, and he's incredibly intelligent. UPMC is so very lucky to have him on their staff.
