an amazing doctor

AMAZING doctor. I consider myself very lucky to be referred to him. Without Dr.Basu the treatment i received would be very depressing, he does know the approach to make it easy and stress free. Intelligent, knowledgeable and incredibly kind. I think of him often even after the treatment was done.

Avoid at all costs

The most outrageous thing about this practitioner is that the only thing that seemed to interest him was asking the put-down question: "Where did you come from?". "Born in the USA" did not seem to satisfy him; I left before he could start on my grandparents. KEEP AWAY from this guy.
