Overview

Dr. Basel considers himself very fortunate to be able to do what he does. Not only does he get to work in a field that he is passionate about, but he is afforded the opportunity to meet people who have been searching for answers which we can frequently provide to help them understand why they have the health concerns that they do. Many of the disorders that we deal with have no cure, but being able to guide care that is available and see the impact it has on a patient’s life, is gratifying.
