Very Rushed

She hurries through her appointments and doesn't relate to her patients in a personal way. This was my daughter's experience as well as mine.

Too many other docotors in NYC

I have been to Dr Basile before and was very pleased. I called for an appt for an eye issue, the first time I was offered an appt weeks in advance. The second time(foolish me!!) the rude receptionist said there was nothing even though I was in great discomfort. Told me to call the 23rd st office,another rude encounter..I was transferred to some one who ended up being a voicemail. Sorry to say my eyes are way too important...and I have found a NEW wonderful doctor who saw me the same day.!!

Doesn't Respect Patient's Time - Always Keeps People Waiting

Very negative experience with Dr. Basile. She has a reputation amount patients and her colleagues for always running late, which I personally find disrespectful.

Wonderful Doctor

I found my dealing with her to be great. She did my cataract surgery, prepped me properly, spent a lot of time with me both before and after the surgery. For the first time in my life I can see without glasses and I was blind as bat! I did have weekly checkups after surgery and when she noticed that a partucular prescription wasn't working she promptly switched me to something better. Is her office busy, yes, but so is every other doctor's office I have ever been in. For what ever reason, all offices tend to over book patients. But was the wait bad, no, averaging 15-20. If you want a good, no nonsense, professional doctor with a great attitude, she is for you.
