Front desk staff friendly and efficient. Waiting time for the doctor surprisingly short and much appreciated. Also Covid precautions taken seriously. Thank you
I love Dr. Bashum. She takes time to explain the process or things and why they happen. She’s incredibly informative and it’s comforting to know that a doctor cares about you and wants you to understand the things going on in your body, why they’re occurring, and what your options are.
My last OBGYN was not a very personal person and Dr. Basham is the complete opposite of that. She provided me information about my test results from my previous doctor, that my doctor didn't even go over with me. I am very excited to have Dr. Basham as my new OBGYN!
Easily diagnosed a longstanding issue.
Dr Basham is outstanding and an amazing medical practitioner. I am lucky to have had the privilege to see her.
Dr. Basham and Dr. Borrison came as an angel for me , can't thank you enough to such talented Dr , after my UAE I had to go for urgent surgery. Dr. borrison promptly took decision and scheduled me in for surgery. I am so thankful and glad I got timely treatment.

I like my provider. She has a good bedside manner, however I felt that she was in rush. I wish she spent little more time with me since this was my annual (only once a year) check up.
I recommend this facility
Dr. Basham has exactly the kind of easy going and straightforward demeanor that you want in an OB/GYN

Dr. Basham is the best! Thanks for taking good care of me :)
She is such a nice and caring OBGYN who really takes her time with you. With most doctors I feel like they're trying to shuffle me out the door as fast as possible but she seemed to really care. She also looked back at patient notes and an email I had sent to her office a couple months ago to prepare for the call. Very knowledgeable and kind.
Dr. Basham is an excellent doctor and explain things very well
Always a positive experience with Dr. Basham. As busy as she is, I always feel she cares.
Really like Dr. Basham! Never felt rushed.
although the doctor was very nice, and answered my questions, the visit felt extremely rushed, like she couldn't wait to finish.
Dr. Basham is excellent!! I have already referred many to her! There is no way she could be better, she is already the best!!
this was my very first gynecologist appointment and I was pretty nervous and the dr made me feel very comfortable.
I went to see Dr. Basham for a second opinion about a procedure that my former gynecologist wanted me to have. Dr. Basham explained very clearly, all the steps she was taking during my first exam, and then she assessed, again, very clear the findings of my ultrasound. Finally, she went over the two options that I have to take care of my problem. She didn't push for one or another, giving me the time to think about both and make my own decision. I felt that I had control over my own health and I really appreciated it. Dr. Basham is an excellent Docteur. She listens and she explains. Thank you Dr. Basham.
Dr. Basham is consistently kind, helpful and just the best!
I love Dr. Basham! Like always, she spoke very directly yet comfortingly to me, and I had concerns about the physical effects of my hormonal birth control but she explained very directly, even with visual aids! Again, she respected my time by making our visit quick, but I felt like all my concerns were addressed in a kind way.
she is the best doctor I have ever met. she genuinely listens and takes time to explain. during the procedure she informed me what she was about to do and what I should feel or expected. i was very touched by her decency. my boyfriend is an ICU doctor and I could only hope he would give his patients the same level of service. She is the best doctor! thank you!!!
Dr. Basham was excellent: calm, relaxed, smart, informative.
Dr. Basham is also the best!

Dr Basham is an incredible Doctor. She always provides great advice. I trust her completely.
great experience very confident in my care
Dr. Basham is a large reason of why we haven't swapped to a more encompassing insurance company. By far, she is the best provider of any kind I have seen.
dr Basham is the best doctor care experience - always!
This provider was recommended to me by a friend and I am SO THANKFUL. This was one of the best experiences I've ever had at a doctors appointment and I immediately called my friend and told her I could never leave this area because of this doctor and this practice.
Dr Basham was very kind during the appointment and was very good at explaining everything that was going on.

Dr Basham is wonderful and a great listener
I had a great experience with Dr. Basham. it was my first time getting the procedure done and she told me everything she was going to do before she did it. She also had me come into her office beforehand to meet her/ go over my history/ ask questions. Probably one of my best experiences with a medical professional.
dr basham was very professional and caring at the same time. was very happy with the time she spent with me
Dr. Basham is the best! I have moved and even though I live about an hour away, I still want to have Dr. Basham as my care provider
Highly recommend
I absolutely love the fact that Dr. Basham is my doctor. She walked through every step she was taking. She gave me a plan for our next steps to take for my health goals. I have moved future away but I still plan on coming to her for my health and even when I plan on pregnancy I rather take the longer trip just to stay with Dr. Basham as my doctor. She is the best!
My care provider has been there for me since the very beginning on my first visit 4 years ago and she answered all my questions, and she took care of me even before any procedures or examinations were held very happy with her
I have recommended her and my friend loves her as well.
Dr. Basham was warm, friendly, and professional. She explained everything before she did it, and made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely be coming back!

sad to learn she was leaving for maternity leave, since my problem needed immediate short term care. Disappointed, would have rathers started with someone else to see this thru all the way.
Seemed like the doctor was in a rush.
I love Elizabeth Basham. I hope she stays around for a long time as add I'd like to stick with her for the rest of my life!

I really liked Dr. Basham!
Dr. Basham was extremely well spoken and really explained my problems in a way that I could understand.

Love her and will definitely recommend her.
Dr. Basham is an outstanding physician. I feel very lucky to have seen her. I trust her diagnosis and suggestions.
the doctor did a great job to spend time with me and answer my questions, made me feel very comfortable
Dr. Basham kept asking me if I had had an abortion because I had a D&C from Dr. Tiglao. I said I had a miscarriage and she kept asking abortion. it was extremely insensitive. she does not make eye contact. way too non chalant for me.
Dr Basham is very intelligent and knowledgeable, and talks thoroughly about things
Dr. Basham was excellent, I am hoping I will have better and nicer experiences from now on
I feel Dr. Basham provides excellent care.
Doctor was excellent. I appreciated the time she took to do a consultation and felt very comfortable in her care. I would recommend her highly.

Excellent doctor
I was blown away by how much time she spent with me in her office answering my questions. Dr Basham was extremely thorough and friendly

Dr. Basham rocks!!!
Dr. Basham is an excellent physician and surgeon and I trust her implicitly.
I never feel like Dr. Basham is in a rush to get me out of her office and takes the time to answer every question I have, even if it's a basic question. I ask for her to write things down for me, particularly conditions I have not heard before, and she is always happy to do so.

dr basham has very great patient repoire she doesn't rush she's genuinely concerned about my health and well-being
very satisfied in all aspects!
Dr. Basham is the best. I always feel very well taken care of when I see her.
I would not recommend this care provider to anyone because her schedule is so limited. I had to schedule a month in advance for a 10 minute appointment, and then had to schedule another 6 weeks in advance for an IUD exchange.
Dr. was very knowledgeable and capable. Great no monserise attitude a pleasure to be seen by her!
Felt rushed through appointment. She was clearly busy so I feel the time spent could of been better. Was rough with exam using speculum. Very vulnerable area so not happy she wasn't more gentle.
Dr. Basham I've only seen once and she was fantastic as Dr. Silverman was not there the day I came in. He has always been the best!
Dr. Basham is compassionate and took her time addressing my concerns. Made me feel comfortable and at ease.
Dr Basham has been very friendly and understanding throughout.
Dr. Basher immediately put me at ease. I feel very confident that she knows her "stuff".
Dr. Basham took the time to explain everything to me so we could make an informed decision together
I love visiting Dr. Basham
She was fantastic & took great care of me. Resolved my condition.
Dr. basham is the best
Dr Bashum is very open, personable, and really listens without judgement
This was my first visit with Dr. Basham. There was an immediate "easiness" about her. She was warm and made me feel comfortable--very relatable. I liked her very much.
Great experience with this doctor. She answers all my questions, she's very professional and compassionate.
I really trust and feel comfortable with Dr. Bashum. I like how she explains everything to me in ways that i can understand, she is always so nice and welcoming.
Dr. Basham is excellent...very thorough
i absolutely love dr basham, i have seen a lot of the doctors at los olivos and would recommend any of them but lately dr basham has been amazing for me and i appreciate everything more than she knows!
Dr. Basham is wonderful!! I feel good going in and better leaving.
Dr Basham was very friendly and answered my questions. Also provided new info which enlightened me on my future needs.
During my IUD consultation, I felt like the provider was very pushy about a certain brand (Mirena) over another. It made me uncomfortable since I was leaning towards the non-hormone option.
Dr. Bashalm seemed very thorough in her approach to my health issues.
Doctor was amazing! Was referred to this doctor/practice after a horrible experience with another Doctor in the area. Came here to get a second opinion and will not be going anywhere else. Absolutely loved the Doctor and the time she took to talk to me and my husband about our concerns with the test results from previous Doctor.
Love Dr Basham, excellent care
The doctor and nurses are great.
Dr. Basham is great!
Dr. Basham was amazing! She was kind, caring and explained everything. I felt comfortable and confident in her care.
She took her time to get my information and in simple words answered my concerns. She sounds knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable talking to her
I've already recommend her to my friends and family.
First time I visited Dr. Basham in place of Dr. Silverman. She was VERY pleasant and would very likely be the doctor I go to if doctor Silverman is not available in the future.
I was extremely nervous about this procedure but Dr. Bashum was able to answer all of my questions and reassure me that everything would go okay. As she was performing the procedure, she walked me through step by step what she was doing. After insertion of my IUD, Dr. Bashum took appropriate measures to make me comfortable because she noticed a drop in my blood pressure which turned my face pale. I was impressed with how many times she personally came back into the room to check on me to make sure i was okay
I wish I had time to talk about how to use the birth control pills I have no idea how to use them correctly- thankfully my friend explained
I was very impressed by Dr. Basham's new patient orientation and welcome process. She took the time prior to my exam to sit in her office and get to know a bit about my history and any important health concerns that I might have. I have never had this experience before and it is a very nice touch to have an opportunity to get to know the doctor a bit prior to an exam when you are a new patient. More physician's should adopt this practice.
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Basham. She sat with me and walked me through all of my questions and gave me very clear answers regarding care that was completely foreign to me. I cannot emphasize enough how kind, understanding, informative, and patient she was with me. She answered my questions in detail that I could understand very well, and made sure I was aware of what was happening during a small procedure at each step, and made sure that I was comfortable with everything. She made me feel like a person rather than just a patient, and I cannot tell you how much that meant to me.
everything was great
Dr Basham was great. She actually spent some time getting to know me and my concerns. I couldn't be more impressed and have already referred her to a friend
I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Basham as my dr. She is very personable, knowledgeable, and caring. couldn't ask for more
very good explanation was given by the doctor
dr basham is an angel, she is thorough, kind, and does not forget any detail. I would follow her anywhere she went
I absolutely have all confidence on her
Love Dr. Basham! She shows great concern for her patient's health and well being. So friendly. Always follows up in a timely manner like she says she will. Very personable and knowledgeable. My husband and I are so bummed she is no longer practicing OB!!!
very nice and made me feel like I was talking to a real person very relaxed and polite and calming and concerned
very pleased with my visit - after having a bad experience at my last office (went to for over 10 yrs), it was refreshing to meet with the doctor who i felt really cared about getting me better
LOVE Dr Basham!
I was very impressed with Dr. Basham. She explained the procedure fully and was concerned with any discomfort I had.
My previous 2 doctors have left this practice so this visit was with a new one. I'm not exactly thrilled that my prior doctors left and each time I've had to establish a new relationship but so far it's been positive.
she is amazing
Helped explain birth control options well.
I was very impressed with Dr. Basham and grateful to have found a brilliant new doctor in a new city after moving unexpectedly, would highly recommend.
Dr. Basham is awesome. When she was unavailable I saw Dr. Ludwig and was equally impressed.
I was very impressed that I was taken to the doctor's office to discuss why I was there, as well as my medical history, before changing into a gown. The doctor spent 30-45 minutes with me before we moved into the exam room for the exam. That shows me that she cares about her patients and that she's willing to take the time to listen to us. This was a first visit, so I don't expect that to happen for every visit, but I do expect her to be a good listener since she was for this visit.
She had poor bedside manners and didn't empathize w/ my feelings.
Dr. Basham was personal...explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions. I feel fortunate to have her as my doctor.
She is one of the best doctors I've ever had!!
I used to live in California and now I live in Texas and still schedule my appointments with Dr.Basham because I have never found a better Doctor!! Her staff is also just as great!
I absolutely love Dr. Basham! She is knowledgable, friendly, compassionate, and caring. I couldn't have asked for a better OBGYN.
My doctor is very thorough, sensitive to my issue and is proactive about next steps for treatment.
The doctor is a very caring person, very considerate person.
I've recommended Dr. Basham to many of my friends/family that are seeking new doctors.
Dr. Basham does a great job of striking a balance between offering advice and support and allowing me to direct my own care. She gives me options and explanations, is happy to make recommendations, and ultimately leaves me feeling empowered to make the right choice for myself. I never feel pressured, judged, or rushed through a conversation.
Dr. Basham is the best dr I've ever had, in any specialty. I'm very lucky to have found her.
Very happy with my doctor.
The doctor left my annual exam notes on the monitor. In the notes it mentioned she discussed with me a vitamin regimen which was never discussed. On a separate visit, I asked to discuss an alternative treatment to BV which to this day, no one has called me back to discuss.
Dr. Basham is great I truly have my trust in her skills and knowledge. I would recommend her to all my friends and family.
I am so lucky to have found Dr Bhashya, after moving to San Jose- Willow Glen from Fremont.
Dr Basham and her staff have a great bedside manner and are very prompt. I would recommend this clinic and physician to anyone looking for a great provider.
