Dr. Basina is the best.
Dr. Basina is a wonderfully pleasant and knowledgeable doctor, and I feel grateful that she is a part of my healthcare team. Not only do I have the utmost confidence that she makes the best decisions for my health, but she also takes the time to connect me with events and organizations in the diabetic community, which helps me to feel optimistic about my health, informed about diabetes care, and connected to people with similar experiences.

Dr. Basina is positively great!
She is very thorough!
I was sent for lab tests and the provider told me I did not have to fast. She told me this two times and I confirmed it with her later. When I got to the lab, they told me I had to be fasting for one of the tests. They called the doctor who said I did have to be fasting. As a result, I was at the lab too long and I have to go back.
Always a pleasure with doctor Basina.

Dr Basina is excellent, she is my favorite doctor and has my 100% trust
Dr. Basina is the best Endocrinologist I have ever had, and I've seen many, in this country and abroad. She uses a seemingly-endless repertoire of treatment methods and tactics that I believe many have never considered, and the proof is in the outcome - after decades of struggling to get my HbA1c below 8, Dr. Basina has managed to guide me to the low sixes. I tell people she is a miracle worker because for me, she is. Her dedication knows no bounds - now that I am nearly 8 months pregnant, we speak every day (and have throughout my pregnancy). My daughter would not be without Dr. Basina. She is a miracle!
Dr. Basina is great. The diabetic educator (can't recall her name) is also great. I feel like I'm in great hands and they are very proactive.
dt Basina is outstanding technically and professionally, caribg and sensitive while not hesitate to probe when require. she is my go-to dr, I can ask her anything and she will take the time and listen and provide help or referral for next steps

Dr. Basina is great & I felt bad about her spending 45 min. with me in my visit, delaying her from seeing other patients on time.
Dr. Basina is hands down the finest doctor I have ever had in any specialty (and I've had many). She goes WAY ABOVE what she needs to to make sure my health reaches its highest potential. Her medical care has CHANGED MY LIFE. Without her, I wouldn't be having my first child in May. She has changed my life, prolonged my life, made my life better in so many ways, dramatically reduced my risk of diabetic complications and very significantly increased my quality of life. I'm enormously grateful for her!
I love Dr. Vaughan and all her staff. Never been so happy with a PCP.
Dr. Basina is the best, most compassionate, most dedicated, hardest-working Endocrine I've ever seen, and I've seen many! She is a miracle worker and a godsend! She had reduced my A1c by 2% and achieved my goal - a dear no other doctor has helped me do, and she did this by staying on the bleeding edge of diabetes care. She is amazing!
Marina Basina is an excellent physician and I think Stanford Hospital should be aware of her caring professional manner, not to mention her knowledge! She is a physician that makes Stanford Hospital so GREAT!

Excellent. I receive excellent care. thank you.
Very good.
Dr. Basina is excellent and has been at every one of my visits with her. She is warm and compassionate, but she has also helped me achieve the best diabetes control I have ever experienced. This is due in part to her natural ability to see trends in data and knowledge of how to respond to them, and in part due to her meticulous following of cutting-edge best practices. She's the best endocrinologist I have ever had, and I have had several in a variety of countries.

This was a continual long-term condition. First time w/Dr. Basina re: thyroid nodules that returned. She did not want to discuss or answer questions w/knowledge I previous obtained. BAD DAY FOR HER? Unhelpful!!
If I ever come across someone looking for a care provider in the department, I will definitely recommend my doctor. I feel that the doctors, PA, etc that I have come across in the times I've received care are extremely knowledgeable and are able to communicate difficult medical terms/processes very clearly. What I love the most is not just the helpfulness/friendliness of the staff but how much I have learned about my medical conditions from them.
Doctor Basina is wonderful. She truly is a "partner" in my health-care. She listens (which is a Big Deal to me); she explains things clearly; and we respect each others' opinions. Definitely one of the best doctors I've ever worked with.

Referred my wife!! Great experience.
Dr. Basina has always provided me with overall excellence in treating my medical condition! It's great to have her managing this disea!!!
have not received results from blood test, do not know if I need meds.. no follow uphas been scheduled as of now
Dr. Besina is outstanding!
The doctor is set in her own opinion about hormone replacement therapy, my primary reason for seeing her was to continue to get the prescription after I moved from Florida to California. I have been using for 5 years with good results. and even sent her data supporting my argument for this med before my visit, yet she acknowledged that she does not have time to read such material from Patients. She does not seem to be open to new/different ideas. Knowing that that there is lot of controversy regarding hormone replacement therapy, I had requested specifically that I be connected with a endocrinologist that believes in hormone replacement therapy and yet it did not happen. I am bit disappointed.
Dr B is awesome
I sincerely value Marina Basina' professional opinion!
