I have nothing bad to say about may doctor or any other doctor at that. If you ask me they are the best

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 have had Dr Bass for 25 years now and I am extremely pleased with his care of me. He has worked with me on adjusting my Medications. I am feeling better now, than before I came to him 25 years ago. I am also very pleased with his staff.

Dr. Bass ended up with me after Dr. Chetlin retired. I believe he and I have worked well together. He is a caring man and doctor, and he understands fibromyalgia.
