How was your experience with the doctor?I didn't go to Dr. Bassett, but my girlfriend did and absolutely loved him. Had nothing but amazing things to say about how professional and smart he is, and how much he helped her with her allergic reaction. I would go to him if I needed to!

How was your experience with the doctor?Very happy with this new relationship already! Dr. Bassett is respectful and attentive. Takes his time to explain things and to LISTEN carefully! Checks to make sure the patient understands; asks if there is more he can do to be helpful. It's fun to talk with him. Very knowledgeable, I think!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Bassett and team (Clara & Dianna) were all outstanding. No stone was left unturned, and left feeling hopeful. I had read about long wait-times, but personally did not feel that at all. I felt like I was at a Michelin rated restaurant with all the attention and care.

How was your experience with the doctor?He is excellent!!! I expected for him to spend 10 mins with me like all NYC doctors do and he was so informative and helpful I was super impressed. Also he has 2 staff members that were helpful Assistant and a Nurse. It really makes a complete impression on a patient when your doctor cares!!! I mean, I had to get blood work and he made sure the assistant had everything correct before she handed it to me. Very thorough, I never hear a doctor doing that!! :)

How was your experience with the doctor?This is my second time seeing DC.Bassett. Dr. Bassett and his staff really care for you. I was there for a while but that's because they took their time to make sure my health improves and we went over on how to change certain things and recommend other doctors. I highly recommend him. Thank Dr. Bassett and staff.

How was your experience with the doctor?It’s been a VERY long time since I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a TRUE medical professional. Dr Bassett is of the old school mentality that his patients deserve his knowledge, time and genuine interest in what’s ailing you!!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Bassett and his team are a breath of fresh air after not receiving clear treatment from other doctors in the past. I traveled to see him and it was well worth it because his Physician Assistant Carla helped investigate my background and current needs and Dr. Bassett made me feel safe with a treatment plan started immediately, sample meds to help me begin to feel better before I get to my pharmacy, and his availability to help. I am starting to explore my seasonal and food allergies as well as asthma treatment and I am encouraged after my visit that I will continue to see Dr. Bassett.

How was your experience with the doctor?My issue was not Allergy related. I figured it wasn't, but after a years-long journey and trying to figure out what on earth was wrong with me, I visited Dr. Bassett to rule out whether it might be allergy related. It wasn't. But he did listen thoroughly to all my complaints and based on them, recommended 2 excellent specialists in different fields for me to see, one of whom was able to finally figure out what was wrong with me! So, while I wasn't actually treated by him, I can definitively say that he truly cares about people and wants them to get better and will figure out how to help you get that way, even if it has to do with going to other doctors. Can't say how appreciative I am to Dr. Bassett for his referral.
