Our Patients

Dr. Bassett performed surgery for my torn ACL and meniscus. From our very first appointment through to the last, she was very thorough and transparent about what to expect. The surgery was flawless and I was provided very detailed next steps about my recovery. Dr. Bassett worked in partnership with my Physical Therapist to ensure I was progressing each week in my rehab in order to recover quickly and safely. At each follow-up appointment Dr. Bassett performed a thorough review of my progress and addressed any concerns. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Bassett. Aside from her expertise in her craft, she is warm, caring and kind. A five star doctor!
