SHC Patient, Apr 2019

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.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Dr. Basham is the best. I always feel very well taken care of when I see her.

SHC Patient, May 2018

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.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Dr. was very knowledgeable and capable. Great no monserise attitude a pleasure to be seen by her!

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

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!

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Dr. Basham is wonderful!! I feel good going in and better leaving.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Dr Basham was very friendly and answered my questions. Also provided new info which enlightened me on my future needs.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Dr. Bashalm seemed very thorough in her approach to my health issues.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

Love Dr Basham, excellent care

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

The doctor and nurses are great.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

I've already recommend her to my friends and family.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

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

SHC Patient, May 2017

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

SHC Patient, May 2017

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.

SHC Patient, May 2017

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.

SHC Patient, May 2017

everything was great

SHC Patient, May 2017

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

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Basham as my dr. She is very personable, knowledgeable, and caring. couldn't ask for more

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

very good explanation was given by the doctor

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

I absolutely have all confidence on her

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

dr basham is an angel, she is thorough, kind, and does not forget any detail. I would follow her anywhere she went

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Great!

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

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!!!

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

very nice and made me feel like I was talking to a real person very relaxed and polite and calming and concerned

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

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

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

LOVE Dr Basham!

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

I was very impressed with Dr. Basham. She explained the procedure fully and was concerned with any discomfort I had.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

she is amazing

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Helped explain birth control options well.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Basham is awesome. When she was unavailable I saw Dr. Ludwig and was equally impressed.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

She had poor bedside manners and didn't empathize w/ my feelings.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Dr. Basham was personal...explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions. I feel fortunate to have her as my doctor.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

She is one of the best doctors I've ever had!!

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

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!

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

I absolutely love Dr. Basham! She is knowledgable, friendly, compassionate, and caring. I couldn't have asked for a better OBGYN.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

My doctor is very thorough, sensitive to my issue and is proactive about next steps for treatment.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

The doctor is a very caring person, very considerate person.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

I've recommended Dr. Basham to many of my friends/family that are seeking new doctors.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Basham is the best dr I've ever had, in any specialty. I'm very lucky to have found her.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Very happy with my doctor.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Basham is great I truly have my trust in her skills and knowledge. I would recommend her to all my friends and family.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

I am so lucky to have found Dr Bhashya, after moving to San Jose- Willow Glen from Fremont.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

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.
