Dr. Basner is FANTASTIC, everytime I go see her she actual listens to my concerns, asks questions, and works with me to coordinate care that will work with my life. I always leave feeling heard, seen, and cared for. On top of these things, she also has a great personality and makes each visit as stress free as possible! Her nurse, Desi, is the same way and helps puts me at ease every time I'm in the office. Both Dr. Basner and Desi listen, empathize, and validate my concerns each visit. I am SO glad I get to have them on my care team, I always know they are genuinely invested in how I'm feeling.
