Specialties

Dr. Sanghamitra Basu has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

If you can find your way past the office staff, you will get care. Dr. Basu Herself Is Great. Long waiting time, confused and clueless front desk staff (billing, scheduling, prescriptions and ordering of tests. Lack of knowledge where it concerns medical terminology). Dr. Basu is a 5+... her staff and office organization 0. Unfortunately, this is a long standing situation and is not worth my aggravation. The office staff is responsible to the Dr. That's where the buck is spent and ends. I would not bother with this situation again.

Worst doctors office ever. Wait is always 3-6 hours!!!!!

Worst doctors office I've ever been to. Everytime I hace an appointment I am there for 3-6 hours. Ridiculous!!!! Office staff is rude and I would not recommend this doctors office to my worst enemy. If you want to waste your time and be treated like crap then this is the place for you but I am not putting up with it anymore. Finding another doctor after over a year of dealing with this horrible place.

Had appt at 4pm., arrived early at 200pm, announced my self by name and said I'd just wait In office till 4. 425pm comes, I approach front office, before I could say a word, front office staff to someone, he was early and told her he'd wait. So I go back and sit durn. 455pm I approach desk and ask for my id and insurance card . At that point an apologize was offered, way too late. People go to pain doctors cause they are in pain. People don't go to doctors to be forgotten. I've already called my primary for another referral. On only two other previous appointments, I noticed with me and other patients the front office was very much in disarray. Also in very first visit, it was a rather warm day and a/c was in order. Many patients in waiting room and many complained. Front office staff downright lied that the A/C was on. We all knew it was not, if it was on on, it was not functioning . This is sad for Dr. Basu for we hadn't started dialog on my treatment. Who knows, it might have worked for me. But Dr Basu and staff will not have the pleasure of my business moving forward, unless their the only game in town .

Waiting for everything

If you have nothing better to do than wait in a doctor's office, then this doc is for you! On my first visit I waited until 6:30pm for a 3:50pm appointment. If I showed up 2.5 hours late I wouldn't be seen. When I confronted her about it she just shrugged it off and said that she likes to spend time with her patients. 10 minutes, staring at the computer, doesn't even check you out. The doctor and her staff write prescriptions for drugs that are not covered by the insurance and can't be bothered to check that before you leave the office. When you go to your pharmacy and find out the prescription is not covered you have to make another appointment with the doctor to get the prescription changed. At that appointment they still did not check until I forced them to, whether the medicine was covered by the insurance. She also does not use anesthesia when doing injections and doesn't even check to see if the insurance covers it.
