Dr Bass is always professional and caring! Also his nursing staff, Thumbs up, five star service!

April 13, 2017

My wait was very long because an accident closed the Squirrel Hill tunnel and Dr. Bass was caught up in it. When I finally got to see him, he was great. I think it would have been nice to be informed of his delay while waiting--I finished over a fourth of the new book I brought with me!

I have been a patient of Dr. Bass for several years. He is concerned for my well being. He has taken excellent care of me.

Dr. Bass takes time to listen to the changes I am experiencing with my rheumatoid arthritis and always has helpful suggestions to manage pain.

Dr Bass was my 1st time meeting with him. I liked and felt like he will be a good fit for me unlike the dr I had before him. I was satisfied with the care he provided for me.

March 20, 2017

Dr Bass is excellent!! Best doctor I've ever had. I go to him for arthritis care. I wish my insurance allowed me to have him as my PCP.

March 15, 2017

Dr. Bass took over my care after Dr. Chetlin retired. Dr. Bass has been very good to me with his patient understanding and treatment of my fibromyalgia & osteoarthritis. He went to bat with Highmark for me over a medication that I needed, that they didn't want to pay for.

March 08, 2017

Dr Bass always listens to my health concerns even when they are with other Dr .I like that because then he often explains to me what is going on with my health.
