He was running behind, but he apologized for being late and listened carefully to my symptoms. I'll be returning in a couple weeks for a follow up to see if I've improved.

I'm a new patient, and as he was asking me about my family medical history, he consistently looked at his phone. I stopped talking till he was done reading his text.

Dr. Basseri was amazing! I felt like I was in good hands. I've been trying to figure out what's been going on with my body for almost 6 months now and after talking to him for about 15 minutes he alreadyknew what was going on. I wish I had gone to him in the first place. Still waiting for my insurance to approve the prescription but I'm confident I will start feeling better soon. I highly recommend him! He's very easy going and makes you feel at ease. Also his staff is wonderful too! Patty is such a sweetheart!
