I’ve been working with Dr. Bassin for over three years. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, she truly understood my concerns and questions going in to a major surgery during the height of a pandemic. She was very personable, thorough, and considerate. Her work is phenomenal, and I would highly recommend Dr. Bassin to anyone in my similar situation.

Dr Leah Bassin is an incredible doctor, I can't say enough great things about her as a person. She is extremely compassionate, brilliant, takes time to sit down and explain medical issues in detail. She saved my life when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. She provided advice and helped me make huge decisions. She went above and beyond to make sure she could perform my mastectomy before her medical leave. I can't thank her enough. I highly recommend her to anyone
