I arrived on time for my 10:15 appointment, but did not see the doctor until 11:15 at which point she dilated my eyes, and I was asked to return to the waiting room for another 20 minutes. The second wait was more like 30/40 minutes, so all in I spent a lot of time waiting for about 10 minutes of patient care.

i was very pleased to hear the doctor comment on the state of my vision. She clearly defined alternate courses of action and left me to determine my choice after due consideration of all factors. I was comforted to see the latest technology instruments she used in her examination and I am sure her conclusions were based on quantitative valuations and not subjective conclusions.

Dr. Basile is professional and gentle. She was thoroughly informative about my diagnoses and treatment but could have told me more about what exactly she was doing along the way. The receptionist was amateurish and disorganized with a frantic air about him. I arrived at 11:45am for a noon appointment and wasn't seen until 12:45pm, so that's aggravating, but apparently the assistant was out today, so this could be an anomaly. I will be back.

Dr. Basile is a great eye doctor, but her reception staff could definitely improve. But during one of my visits, I checked in and then waited for nearly 30 minutes. And it was only after I asked if I would be seen soon that the receptionist notified Dr. Basile's assistant that I was waiting.

She's a great doctor. Dr. Basile diagnosed me right away and sent me to the retina specialist immediately so I can get emergency treatment. I have to get cataract surgery in the near future and have total confidence in Dr. Basile.

I had a 9:15am appt and they got me in within 5 minutes of my time. I had not had my eyes checked in years so it was a first time visit for me. She was great and talked me though exactly what she was doing and why. I would absolutely come back again.

I've been seeing Dr. Basile for years and I cannot recommend her enough. I originally started seeing her for an emergency problem that required treatment years ago, and liked her so much that I've continued my annual eye exams with her. She's always a pleasure to see, the wait time is minimal, and her treatment and advice has helped me to dramatically improve the quality of my eyes and tears.
