I was impressed by the Mt. Hood Complex as I have never been at this clinic before. Providence on Glisan was the regular clinic for our doctor visits. The staff and Dr. Bassett were very friendly and competent.

Dr. Bassett took my age into consideration & was very considerate in understanding how my medications affected my system. He gave me excellent advice in handling some of my chronic problems & made very clear advice to my as concerned unnecessary tests at this time. He was very definite about not wanting to subject me to difficult testing at my age when it didn't appear to be necessary. I will definitely see Dr. Bassett again if I have future problems. He is great!

It's been over 12 days since test & I'm still waiting for results. I was told that a letter would be mailed to me with findings between 7 - 10 days. I had to call dr. office to request a letter.

Very thankful for Dr Bassett. I was a new patient with GI trouble and from the first phone call to the office I was very impressed. In fact my PCP had referred me to a different Endocrinologist and when I found Dr Bassett I had my PCP cancel the other referral and ask him to refer me to Dr Bassett. I am so thankful !

I like Dr. G. Bassett... He talks to me not at me like Dr. Khine, Providence Affiliate. He listens & generally gets to the point of symptoms & possible solutions.

The office layout was a bit confusing. Might have been nice if someone could have shown me how to get out, I was lost! Seems silly to have me fill out paperwork and then 2 minutes later have me state the exact same information. Maybe there is a way a doctor could look up medical history before I go to my appointment. Also, if I take the time to fill out information online before my appointment it would be nice if the doctor/nurse had access to that. it is frustrating to waste time answering questions that I just spent time answering days before I arrived. One last thing when I called to make the appointment I was told 8am. Then the day before I got a phone call that said my appointment was at 8:30, but I should arrive at 8:15. It was very confusing. Either way I did not see a doctor until close to 9am. I thought I would be done by then.

Failed iv during my procedure at Legacy would cause me to avoid using this facility again. Having a working iv during a procedure is just basic. The nurse and care team should have been able to put in a working iv. I am really disappointed in the quality of care I received.

The doctor had no interest in a rare condition I had been diagnosed with twice. He treated me without knowing the real cause of my pain. He had no interest in discussing my thoughts of what is causing my pain.

Doctor Bassett answered all my questions and ordered an ultra sound. He personally called with the results and refered me to a surgeon. I had surgery and am doing well. Very grateful for his thoroughness and listening to my symptoms.

Went into good deal of explanation about future possible alternate tests for possible allergies and about diet controls for allergic reaction now. Had low-key way of expressing humor that patient appreciated.

This is my first visit with the doctor in this practice. First off the nurse that took the blood pressure was too lazy to get a cuff that fit my tiny arm. and it fell half way down my arm she sighed deeply the 3 times she took it. then the doctor was not who I thought I would be seeing as my regular gastroenterologist referered me to a surgeon for a gastric pace maker as my gastroparesis hasn't been able to be mananged by other medications or diet. this doctor was not a surgeon and didn't seem to know what he was talking about. also he said he didn't have all of my records that he needed and they had lost them once before and had been sent again before the appointment and all the medical records should have been there or at least in the computer as they were all done my legacy and should have available to him. I had also asked him to check my ears twice to ensure I didn't have anything wrong with them and he didn't he checked my throat instead. I had asked about how it was the gastic pace maker would work and he said it would be up by my shoulder but when I looked it up and was told by other doctors they all said it would be outside the abdominal wall of the stomach and there would be wires that would go and when I told him this he said" well that's not at all where it would it would be and that they weren't all wrong. Also when I asked about surgery he said he was step to it and I would need to make another appointment with the actual surgeon which once again I and my doctor who had referred me thought this is who I was going to be seen by. I also felt like my feelings and needs were unheard and very condescending towards me. I felt like it was a wasted visit as I thought I was suppose to see the surgeon and once again felt that he wasn't listening to everything I said or feelings, it felt like he was uninterested and a very negative experience. in the past atlegacy I have been treated with dignity and respect and felt very comfortable and happy with all other legacy personal and phsyicans this is the first time that I have felt like this and I filled this survey out because of how i was treated at this time but like I said in the past I have always have had great service.

I first saw Dr. Bassett when I was a patient at My. Hood Legacy hospital. I was quite I'll, and he was so kind and gentle. He explained what was wrong, and answered all the questions I had. I will continue to see him, and have recommended him to several friends.

Lovely man. Totally listened to my concerns. I had a problem different from what I had come in for and he totally took it on and made arrangements to address it now. It is nice to know someone else is thinking about my problem.
