SHC Patient, Jan 2016

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!!

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

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.

SHC Patient, May 2015

have not received results from blood test, do not know if I need meds.. no follow uphas been scheduled as of now

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

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.
