She is terrific. Always takes time to answer all of my questions thoroughly and learned about my lifestyle to make recommendations based on my day-to-day. Referred me to a great specialist for a procedure I needed. Last visit they were running late, but that has only happened that one time. I wouldn't let that deter anyone - maybe just budget more time for the appointment.

I feel she was caring and thorough. Her male assistant was a bit rough cut. “Come in”, “Sit down”, “get up”. Did his job but seemingly begrudgingly.

Dr. Basile was great and very thorough! However, the communication between Zocdoc and whatever system the Dr. office uses do not communicate. So if you're using Zocdoc make sure you call the office to confirm they have your appointment. If not, be ready to wait about an hour to be seen. Plus fill out tons of paperwork that I had already submitted via Zocdoc too but the office did not receive. So annoying.

Terrific doctor. Very knowledgeable and great at explaining the issues with eyes. Caring and warm manners. Dr Basile spotted a hole in my retina durng the eye exam we did for different eye problem. She recommended excellent retina specialists to do further exams. Long story short, hole is patched and eye is saved. Thank you, doctor!
