Great man - very compassionate, friendly and explains things well. Have complete trust in his assessment of my conditions and the best path forward.
Mr Bassi was perfect for us. He kept us informed throughout the whole process and I would recommend him to all.
Such a nice person. Really good at explaining issues and offering solutions. Excellent experience.
Excellent and very professional!
Having waited years for someone to make a decision as to what could be done to alleviate the deteriorating condition of my back/spine, it was indeed very refreshing to meet Mr Bassi on 31st August 2022. Having looked at my CT and MRI scans he explained what could be done to alleviate at least some of the problem and, upon my agreement to his suggestion, he offered me a date of 16th September 2022 for it to be carried out at the Harley St Clinic. He carried out the procedure on that date. I wish I'd met Mr Bassi some years ago!
He was extremely professional and informative with my condition and future care.
Dr Sanj Bassi is a gentleman and my Angel in disguise. Since 2008 I’ve been doing surgeries and treatment with him, and he is one Class above. Dr Sanj is very caring, understanding and humble.
Took time and care to explain issue and potential remedies
Most helpful explains fully my situation -refer to my previous comments
Mr Bassi was friendly and welcoming, asked me to explain the history of my condition and devoted a good half hour or so explaining my scan to me and the issues it showed. He also explained what was causing my ongoing pain and what could be done to manage it and he also identified an issue at L2/3 which could give me serious problems in the future if action wasn’t taken to correct it. It was a very good consultation and I look forward to seeing Mr Bassi again soon:
