Dr. Bass and his staff are the best providers that I have ever been to. They show empathy beyond what I have ever experienced at a doctor's office, and seriously listen to me instead of brushing off my complaints or symptoms like other providers have. They address all of my concerns at each visit. I will always recommend this office to anyone looking for a Rheumatologist.

I am very comfortable with Dr Bass as my GP

i wish i had these guys a loooong time ago! can not stress the importance and compassion these folks have for their patients.... i have a great team now and it was very hard for me finding the right doctors for my condition. thank you all for everything you have done for me and gave me knowledge on my health care needs. it will always be a battle with my chronic pain, and i will keep fighting to find ways to lessen it or find more treatment options, even though you can not replace a spine.

Dr. Bass is great. I have come to depend greatly on his medical advice and referrals for my various arthritic problems.

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

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.
