    I was referred to Mr Bassi for trigger finger therapy. Throughout consultation, treatment and follow up, Mr Bassi was highly professional and offered expert advice for my condition. He also explained the underlying cause and risks associated with the treatment options. I really appreciated his medical skill and ability to put me at ease when performing the steroid injection in my finger. I was also very impressed with his willingness to make a special appointment to see me when he was off duty in order to investigate a minor skin reaction several days after the steroid injection and put my mind at rest. I would highly recommend Mr Bassi to other people with similar conditions.
