One of the best and nicest doctors I have ever seen.
Pleasant and professional experience, highly recommend him.
He is wonderful. Very thorough and compassionate and smart.
Clearly very experienced and office runs well. PA Elizabeth is super. Go see him.
I was referred to Dr. Bassett by my GP and luckily got an appointment the same day- unheard of in NYC! Dr. Bassett and Dr. Patel were very knowledgeable and took great care of me. The only thing that was difficult was all the information that was given to me was a lot to absorb so I may have missed a couple things, but I think I got the most important stuff.
Dr. Bassett was extremely helpful. His entire staff was welcoming and encouraging and I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.
Doctor and staff were really great. All of my questions were answered in detail. Tests were done quickly. I recommend.
Great doctor.. Makes you feel completely comfortable. Great PA and office staff
Very professional, kind, and competent. Listens. Capable staff. I'm a new patient and will be going back.
The PA was fabulous. Dr. Clifford not so much.
Everyone I encountered was friendly, professional, and clearly knew their jobs, and knew them well. Everything was explained at each step and not only was I given printed results of all the allergy tests, time was taken to explain what they meant. Dr Bassett was very thorough and personable, ordering additional deeper tests where appropriate. Short term improvements I can make were suggested, and long term remedies laid out so I can make an informed choice about the course of my treatment. I walked away feeling, for the first time in a couple of years, that there actually may be a way out of my asthma, and a plan to get there.
He's the ONLY guy to see. An amazing doc that always get to the bottom of what is really going on. I highly, highly recommend him! His staff is also friendly and efficient which is always a plus in NYC.
Absolutely fantastic. I've been very sick and they diagnosed me properly and even called the other Drs I need to see. The Best!
Great- lovely guy, very smart, helpful and optimistic
What a great experience going to a doctor, from the person at the front desk, the nurse and his PA was just amazing Loved getting an appointment online Friday evening and was see Monday morning. I need to see another doctor and they made the appointment for me for the following day! I will be thanking the doctor who referred me also
Dr Bassett is great. He really takes the time to understand and help think through all of the possibilities.
Dr. Bassett and his staff are pleasant, thorough, and good communicators. I was called 5 minutes early for my appointment and was never waiting in the treatment room alone for more than 1 minute. Everyone is helpful, knowledgeable, and efficient. I highly recommend this practice!
The reception and medical staff were incredibly friendly and efficient. I highly recommend this Dr's office.
One of the most caring, compassionate doctors I've ever seen. He spent a full hour trying to resolve my concern, and his staff helped set me up with other doctors for follow-up.
I am so glad that I stumbled upon Dr. Bassett. He's super thorough, communicative and has a great sense of urgency. I experienced zero wait time! He's definitely on my list of keeper physicians!
I loved my experience at this office! From the nurse to the PA to the doctor everyone seemed very invested in my health concerns. I would definitely recommend this doctor!
Absolutely amazing! Go see for yourself. Having been to allergists and many dermatologists in my lifetime, he has been the absolute best. Not sure anyone could top it! Informative, lets you tell of your problems, offers suggestions, offers other therapies, offers and makes appointments with other doctors & is concerned about the entirety of your issue, even if it isn't solely dealing with allergies.
Amazing! Everyone was simply amazing.
Attentive and competent
Didn't think doctors like this exist???? Super nice, super professional & super knowledgeable!! The whole staff was very professional. Definitely felt better just being there ????????????????
The whole practice was very efficient and thorough!
Dr. Bassett has a wonderful bedside manner and was ready to assist me in getting all the treatment I need. His staff was also very professional, proficient and knowledgeable.
He is really nice and so helpful and his stuff is super knowledgable. One of the very best doctors I've been to.
My visit with Dr. Bassett was excellent overall. He took the time to address all of my concerns, and answered every question I had, plus more. The treatment regimen that he gave me has drastically improved my quality of life, and I have felt so much better ever since. The office staff and Dr. Bassett are just fantastic, and I am so happy to have found a great practice to be part of!
I found dr. Bassett professional understanding and pleasant. He truly wants to treat me in the best way there is
I've never felt more welcomed at a doctor's office in my life! He was so attentive, knowledgable, and informative. I highly recommend Dr.Bassett.
Couldn't be more pleased.
Dr. Silverman was extremely thorough and all the staff were friendly and efficient. They saw me through a few appointments and made sure to write everything down clearly. I have already recommended this office to colleagues.
Ir was the most pleasant experience i have had at a doctor's office. Dr. Bassett and his team of specialist were not only skilled, but caring. They took time with me and were very thorough in planning an effective course of action for my complete and total healing. Thank you Dr. Bassett! I plan on sharing my experience with my friends and family.
Awesome! Great hospitality and very professional!
Very thorough and helped me to find other doctors to get to the bottom of my issues. Everyone in the office was very attentive and nice.
Dr. Bassett is a really wonderful caring doctor. Made me feel really comfortable and explained all the procedure and test plan to me. And tried to work with me and my schedule. I would definitely recommend him to everyone.
hes a very good doctor and he also explains about your allergies to you
The PA is great. Spent very little time with the MD, but Carla was fabulous.
Probably the most attention ive been given to a doctors consultation in recent memory.
I felt like they truly cared! They took their time & we're very detailed with questions. They even referred and got me an appointment with an Specislist. A wonderful experience!!
Great bunch of people who care. I highly recommend them.
He and his team have gone above and beyond to help me out so far, and I've only have my first initial appointment. I would definitely recommend coming to this doctor!
Dr Bassett is highly knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend him highly. Great staff too.
I was seen right away, and i left with the feeling that we would handle all of my many allergy/asthma issues... HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Very efficiently run practice. Tests done immediately. Course of action determined, and explained. Scripts written. Back to work downtown by 2pm after a 12pm appointment.
They are so friendly and made my son feel very comfortable.
Dr Bassett was wonderful. He is highly knowledgable, has a great bedside manner and answers any questions you may have. I would recommend him highly.
All members of Dr Bassett's staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Dr Bassett was thorough and clearly cared about finding exactly what was wrong with me. He also was clearly knowledgable. I would highly recommend visiting his clinic.
Great staff, and he is a great doctor.
Dr. Bassett was very nice, helpful, and professional. He listened to my concerns and responded with solutions and suggestions. He is really chatty and kind of goofy, so I felt super relaxed and comfortable during the appointment. I would definitely recommend him. However, when I got the bill, I was shocked at how high it was. I have never been to an allergist and knew it would probably be a lot to go to one but not for this much. I called the office and was told someone from billing would give me a call. Billing called me the next day (great!), however, it was a horrible experience. The woman on the phone had an attitude and kept repeating herself without explaining and seemed frustrated with me even though I was the one she needed to be helping. I recommend this office, but, if you have any issues or questions regarding insurance or payment, I would be prepared to get sassed at.
I spent most of my visit with Elizabeth Rothstein and she was wonderful. I have asthma and wasn't doing well when I got there. She treated the attack and I felt much better by the time I left. She was very thorough when going through my medical history and I really took time to understand my circumstances. I also met with Dr. Bassett. He was equally patient. Both were incredibly professional and accommodating. I was a little anxious about things and, after the visit, I feel confident that they will figure it out and keep me well. Wholeheartedly recommend.
If every doctor were to exhibit the characteristics of Dr Bassett, then we would be living in a living breathing healthy utopia where everyone would not just be healthy for a time but maintain their health perfectly.
The entire team was lovely and thorough! The doctors are wonderful and caring, and I feel as though I am in good hands with a plan for the future. They addressed every concern I had (even those not directly related to my allergies) and referred me to other specialists when needed. I would highly recommend this office! I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a visit to the doctor this much!
Great staff, terrific doc.
Loved that he helped me to manage three of my other doctors to get my asthma under control.
Dr. Bassett is friendly, cheerful, easy to talk to, and he clearly knows what he is doing. He is extremely thorough and I trust him completely.
He was truly what I have been looking for! Very thorough and he took his time. I didn't feel rushed but I felt like he wanted to find out what was going on with me as much as I did and that's what I need in an allergist!!
By far one of the best doctor appointment experiences I've ever had from the moment I walked in to the moment I left. Dr. Bassett is beyond qualified as an allergist. He and his lovely, hospitable staff went out of their way to make me not only feel like a valued patient, but also like a guest in their office. 5-star quality and service. It's so hard to find highly qualified doctors in New York City who don't triple-book, whose egos haven't gotten to their heads, and who actually listen to your problems and offer applicable, realistic solutions that match your lifestyle and needs. My expectations have been exceeded. Dr. Bassett has my recommendation as New York City's (and the country's) best allergist.
I really liked this doctor. He seems to be the kind of doctor who really wants to get to the bottom of your problems, not like one who will give up or send you elsewhere if your problem is not immediately and easily diagnosed.
Best bedside manner of any doctor I've ever met - I highly recommend seeing Dr. Bassett and the other medical professionals in his office.
Dr. Bassett and everyone in the entire office was great, kind, and thorough.
Wonderful experience. Dr. Bassett clearly cared about all aspects of my health. The wait time was a little long, but well worth it.
Very thorough and proffessional services.
All the staff I delt with were really friendly and helpful. Dr Basset was excellent and clearly very engaged in the field and willing to think outside the box :) would highly recommend to anyone looking for an allergist :)
Loved him! He took the time to talk things through, his staff were great, and he even wanted to call a previous doctor to advocate for me and make sure I got appropriate follow-up.
He was extremely thorough and was resolute on finding the explanations to my weird symptoms.
Dr.Bassett is very knowledgeable, efficient and friendly.I would highly recommend him.
I loved Dr. Bassett and his staff! They were attentive, thorough and very warm and personable. The Dr. was also great. He spent real time with me to explore my situation, get to know me and begin plotting out treatment options. Extremely pleased and satisfied with how my appointment went. I am confident the treatment plan will be well suited for me.
Dr Bassett and his staff were unbelievable. They went out of their way to help my condition, calling other doctors, trying tests, giving me things to try at home etc. Dr Bassett has helped put a team of Doctor's together to help me get over this. I couldn't recommend him enough, a fantastic Doctor and office.
This was a first visit. All staff members were efficient and courteous. Dr. Bassett and all medical staff were thorough in the history taking and examination. Late on a Friday afternoon, Dr. Bassett quickly referred me out when it appeared my condition was not an allergy. He spoke with the referral office and urged them to wait to see me. Dr. Bassett and staff seem caring and concerned.
Thank you for being professional, friendly and thorough. Staff is extremely nice and efficient as well.
An overall good visit. Listened to me and what I wanted and were very reassuring and clear.
Dr. Bassett was very thorough and professional.
Unlike most doctors, he spent a considerable amount of time with me.
Everyone was very friendly and informative.
He's a fast talking doctor, sometimes felt like a car salesman. But he was really nice and eager to work. I'd go again.
Excellent manner... thorough exam and consultation!
Best doctors appointment I've ever had! Really really really helpful.
The doctor and his staff were very friendly and welcoming. It was an enjoyable experience. I do however wish that the doctor himself would slow down and listen more.
Happy to have him for allergy. Should have come earlier.
I'm looking forward to working with him.
Great and efficient place to get your allergy shots
Dr. Bassett is exceptional Allergist. He is very kind and cares about his patients. I would never consider any other allergist. I will recommend his my family and friends
efficient and courteous! Made me feel that he could solve my problem.
Excellent practice. Everyone on staff takes their time to diagnose and treat allergies/asthma correctly and with the least possible amount of medication. Great team!
He was great! Went to him several times to try and identify my allergy issues. I also had an allergy emergency and he let me come in without an appointment to have it taken care of!
Love this doctor! so nice and knows what he is doing!
Dr. Bassett is highly skilled and I trust that he knows his stuff. My problems are not straight forward and I wish he would have slowed down a bit so we could talk about what I've been experiencing. I had to really push my questions. That said, I would recommend him. He say me right on time which was great and the staff is very nice and they are happy to explain things or get answers for you. I have seen him at his main office on Park Ave and at the 65th Street location.
Dr. Bassett and his staff are awesome! I go there weekly for allergy shots now and they are welcoming, fast, and super helpful. I often need to change my regular time to adjust to my schedule and they are awesome. I've been late due to trains or my sons (or me) and they still let me get shots. Dr. Bassett is incredibly thorough and takes time to explain test results. I cannot recommend this practice enough!
everyone was very nice and helpful! i would recommend this clinic to everyone
The office staff were great. Dr. Basset while he doesn't do what I came there for was wonderful and contacted all of mt other physicians. The next day he called me on multiple occasions to get in contact with people who would be able to treat me. He went well over and beyond
Very organized and thorough doctor. I feel confident that he will be able to help me. I felt a little rushed at the visit, I will see how the follow up goes.
He's really kind and knowledgeable. He took the time to listen to me and even made an effort to remember the name I prefer to be called vs the name that I put on forms! It's the little things.
Both Dr. Bassett and Dr. Elliot, along with the staff is wonderful. They are attentive and respectful of your time.
Drs. Bassett and Elliott were wonderful. They were thorough and thoughtful! I learned more about my allergies than I've ever known!
Amazing, very thorough and nice people.
Very informative and genuine, didn't feel rushed like I ususally do in NYC doctors offices, very professional.
Professional, fast, thorough. Both Dr. Bassett and his support staff are amazing.
Dr. Bassett is a kind, caring professional who not only made plans for my continuing care, but also found me another medical professional who could see me right away when my own specialist could not.
Great service - very professional and cuts to the heart of the matter.
Dr. Bassett has my highest recommendation. He is totally professional, a gentleman and very caring!
Dr. Bassett and his staff were great. Everyone truly listened and was very helpful.
Fantastic. Staff is fantastic and everyone was a pleasure and very informative. HIghly recommended.
There were emergency visits earlier in the day which backed up everything, so I ended up waiting 30-40 minutes. However, once I got there the care was great. The doctors & assistants take a lot of care and time to explain everything clearly. If you are getting prick tests for allergies, give yourself some time. I didn't leave until 5:30 and I was seen at 4pm.
Excellent intuitive doc who immediately diagnosed what was wrong with me. Very thorough and accessible. Doesn't rush you through and really listens to you. Highly recommend!
Great visit. Straight to the point and actionable takeaways. Short wait time (~10-15 mins) but nothing super inconvenient.
Very knowledgable and very informative.
Dr. Bassett and his team were very thorough during my appointment. They took a full history, diagnosed my issue, and recommended a series of next steps in an effort to help me alleviate my allergic skin condition.
I thought it was through, staff were lovely, especially Elizabeth the NP. She explained so I understood. When the doctor spoke to fast, I asked for him to slow down and he did. They were kind in getting me another appt. quickly with another Dr. So I wouldn't have to wait. I was very happy.
He is very nice and was able to explain my diagnosis and process would be like.
Dr. Bassett is the consummate professional, being super helpful, proactive and informative, without being stuffy or impersonal. He's the kind of doctor that you want to be friends with. I'd recommend him to anyone!
Elizabeth Rothstein the Physician's assistant was such a pleasure she made me feel so comfortable and at ease.
He was super nice, but I felt rushed. After the tests were done he asked "what can I give you?". Like I am supposed to know what I need to help my allergy symptoms.
i am never going back to their office.. they are money suckers.. they try to get you to be tested and ask you to come back as much as possible so they can charge you more! and the doctor only sees you on the last test.. its just so unprofessional and a total rip off!
Very professional and thruough
very knowledgeable, great doctor, doesn't stop until he finds the cause of the issue.
In terms of bedside manner/customer service: The front desk staff was nice, the nursing staff wasn't rude, the PA was excellent, and the doctor was fine (if a bit curt/rushed). The facilities were standard to above average and very clean. Most of the stars are for the PA (Elizabeth Rothstein), who made a point of taking her time and explaining everything. She was a pleasure. Overall, a satisfactory experience, and I will go back for the follow up with Elizabeth Rothstein, but I would not necessarily recommend this practice due solely to the egregious wait time. My appointment was scheduled for 3:00 pm, but I arrived at 2:45 and didn't leave until 5:05. The total time with the nurse, PA, and doctor couldn't have been more than 30-45 mins (I'd estimate 10 with the nurse, 20 with the PA, and 5 with the doctor), so the remaining 1.5+ h of the time was spent waiting.
Dr. Bassett understood my needs and is going to be very helpful in connecting me with a network of specialists so that I can have all my medical needs met locally.
Dr. Basset is great, very thorough in exploring all possible causes to my symptoms, and above all, looks for underlying problems rather than just allergies alone.
Dr. Bassett takes his time with you and explains the test you are going to have done and gives you a follow-up appointment before you leave the office. They accommadate your schedule. His staff were friendly and professional.
Very efficient and detailed . Loved it
Very friendly, took his time to understand my complaints, also gave good directions regarding the medication use.
I spent most of my two hour appointment with his physician assistants, who were all really nice and helpful. Dr. Bassett came in at the end to review everything, and tell me to make another appointment for more testing soon. Haha, it almost seemed like he let his wonderful physician's assistants to all the heavy lifting, and then swooped in to take the credit! I had a great experience at his office, though.
It was orderly and professional. Dr Bassett seemed genuinely concerned and came up with options to explore for my treatment. Especially since I have a complicated ailment, Cholinergic Urticaria.
Wonderful,professional, caring staff, especially Elizabeth Rothstein.
The staff was amazing! Carla (Physicians Assistant) & Rose (nurse) provided exceptional service with a smile. They explained the process and set expectations of what is to come. Also, no wait! They respected my time. A++++!!!!
The doctor and his entire team including the PA Jenny Kelly and his nurse are all remarkably good. They are very professional, patient, have great listening skills and provided me good explanations.
Dr. Bassett pays a lot of personal attention towards you in your visit. He displays a strong attention to detail and ensures you understand what options you have in your treatment. When I wasn't able to find an appointment for almost two weeks away, Dr. Bassett made an opening in what was likely his lunch break. I am excited to have a longstanding relationship with Dr. Bassett's practice.
Very thorough and very nice Doctor, PA and staff.
Made sure to answer all my questions - went over and above to help me find a doctor to assist me with issues that were not his specialty
He was very thorough
Fast, efficient, thorough and accomodating to my needs and questions. I recommend him.
The office visit was great. The office staff and the nurses were courteous. Dr Basset was professional and did a great job explaining everything to me.
I was extremely happy with the professionals--physician, nurse, and PA. They took a lot of extra time to make sure I understood my condition and the options that I had. The front desk staff, however, was extremely rude and brusque. One woman was downright mean. I will probably go back, but primarily because of how great the professional staff were.
Dr. Bassett is on the ball: he asks you the right questions, explains his line of thinking, and always stays focused on your treatment. So even though he's usually seeing multiple patients, I feel I am getting good care. Unfortunately one of his PAs is rather unprofessional. In one visit, she told me all about her son in California and her love of hiking, gave me unsolicited advice about a non-medical matter, talked about her clothing, called me "cookie" and patted me unnecessarily on the knee. Lady, I'm here to get treated for asthma, not to chit chat!
Very personable doctor. Listened carefully and took lots of notes (using paper and pen, not on an electronic device unfortunately). Recommendations for treatment seemed totally appropriate and reasonable.
absolutely fantastic. for the first time in years, a team of pros is finally helping me get to the bottom of my medical concerns. incredibly knowledgable and on their game.
Dr. Bassett & staff were very nice.
Dr. Bassett colleagues were extremely friendly, helpful, and personable. They took the time to speak with me and explore different treatments and solutions that would work best for me. They didn't try to 'sell' me anything or talk me into undergoing any more tests than absolutely necessary.
Great service, attention to details, very insigntful.
