Susan does a great job explaining my options and the potential impact on the results.

December 04, 2014

Sue took time listening to me and problem solving. She asked questions instead of talking over me. She researched some vitamins & even coupons for me! Above & beyond what any other doctor would do!

November 29, 2014

Ma. Basta is very concerned with my pain management and takes the time to insure I understand what is required of me. she makes sure I understand how and when to take my medication and will work to insure I have correct amount of I'm going out of town.

October 08, 2014

Sue Basta has been my care provider for many years. I feel so fortunate to work with her. She is informed, caring, trustworthy, and empathetic. She truly cares about her patients, is very involved and concerned, stays up to date, works with patients on their paperwork (i.e, FMLA) and is just the best!

September 28, 2014

I'm changing medication for my pain management and Susan too extra time in explaining and re assuring me about the change and its possible side effects. This was very nice to have happen.

Susan Basta is the best.

She started a change in my medications and took the time to explaine any suspected side effects. I'm appreciative of that as I have had some mild stomach upset but it is going away.

August 29, 2014

Change from Dr. Brogan to Sue Basta has been great.

August 24, 2014

At this time, and point, in my health and care with the Pain Management Clinic, I do not believe that I could think of anyone more qualified or better able to provide that care than Dr. Sue Basta.

July 31, 2014

I was very impressed with my experience with Sue Basta. She did not dismiss my concerns in any way and in fact took the time to do an internet search to confirm what I had been experiencing. I felt that she was open to new ideas and ways of looking at things. I felt that she gave me more help than the doctor I saw a month before at the clinic. I would highly recommend her.

June 17, 2014

December 20, 2012

i have recomended sue basta to many people

December 03, 2012

Sue Basta is the best! She always explains everything she is doing, asks approporiate questions, and involves me in my care. She also gives me suggestions on alternative ways of taking medicine already prescribed and that has been most helpful in helping me control my pain.

November 26, 2012

I appreciate the fact that both the nursing assistants and Susan Basta have encouraged me to ask questions, and have made certain that I know where to call if there were ever a problem, either with my health issues or with medications I am currently using.

Dr. Basta always takes time to make sure she understands the complaints I have as well as making sure I am functioning well in my personal life as far as work and my children. She takes her time in talking to me and makes me feel like why I am there is important to her and that she is not rushing me to tell her what is going on so she can get to the next patient.

Since I've been transfered to this providers care, she has always shown concern, generally tried to help me deal with my problems & concerns and has followed up with such.

May 08, 2012

Everyone took time visit with me and they didn't act or seem rushed even though I could tell they were busy.

April 19, 2012

I love the service I am receiving. The care provider is awsome.

April 06, 2012

I do not like the computer thing. It keeps the Dr. from looking at the patient, and it makes me feel as if they are not paying attention to my problems. I know they are, but they have to do 2 things at once, and it is just unfair to them and to us. Most people can't type and look at someone at the same time. The dr's aren't supposed to be secretaries!! I hate the idea of taking notes on a computer.

March 14, 2012

Sue Basta does an outstanding job of taking care of the patient.

March 07, 2012

My experience with Sue Basta was very good.

February 15, 2012

Sue Basta is very good at listening to my concerns. She is genuine. If she knows the answer to my question she make every effort to help me understad it. if she does'nt understand your question shes very good at trying to engage you until he does. if she does'nt know the answer there's no smoke or mirrors she tells you she does'nt know but usually has a answer the next appiontment. When I had a complication with my treatment I did'nt have a problem getting through to her & she arranged for me to be seen for which I will always be greatful. She cares not just about my symptoms she cares about me!
