Stories of Strength: Real Stories, Real Results.

I had been coming to BASS Cancer Center for almost a year now and every time I come here, it’s always a very nice experience. Dr. Chao, my oncologist is very kind and always accommodating when it comes to all my questions regarding my health. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to what to do to properly manage my condition. Also, a big shout out to all his staff who are all accommodating and very friendly.

Finished my 28 days of treatment and found the staff to be committed to easing a patient’s concerns about the process. They help you deal with the physical and mental difficulties that arise from subjecting your body to radiotherapy. I greatly appreciate what they’ve done for me.

It's difficult to adequately express my positivity about  BASS. Everything about this group is better than any other experience with other medical facilities. Time spent in the waiting lobby says a lot. Clearly I'm not alone.Respect, kindness, competence.  That's BASS!
