    Dr. Bassett..she is amazing. She understands and is very empathetic. She inserted us in her day’s schedule even if she was not supposed to be in clinic. Unfortunately, for reasons beyond her control, access to her has become difficult. Nevertheless, she works very closely with us to make her schedule work out. She is always responsive to any questions or concerns we have, be it in an office visit or on Mychart.

    Our first time at Doernbecher and we were marveling at the quality and professional nature of everyone we encountered. I loved how all providers, from the check in person to the discharge nurse, talked directly with our son first and centered their care around him. All the staff were incredibly caring and sensitive.

  • Jun 10, 2019

    I just wanted to say this was the first time that I really felt like we as a family were heard. Dr. Bassett's question of how she could help us was sadly the first time anyone has actually asked us and for her to hear out the experience that we've had thus far as well as help us kind of plan, put a game plan together was very helpful. We appreciate her approach and her thoughtfulness to our questions and answers and her willingness to establish a plan but not be rigid and be dynamic about shifting and changing the plan should we need to based on information that comes up. Thank you very much.

  • Jun 06, 2019
