“Taking care of people and helping them is time well spent. I believe in developing a close relationship with people who are facing cancer because it’s essential to their care and quality of life. It’s important that they’re comfortable with and confident in their customized treatment plan. And it’s just as important for them to know that they can confide in me. My goal is to give everyone in my care my time, my focus and the satisfaction that they’re getting the best treatment that’s possible. There are no shortcuts. It takes heart and commitment. ”

Dr. Basile is a great doctor, she made me feel at ease. She's very patient,caring and intelligent. She is very through. She went over all of my records and explained in detail what was going on. She was very professional and she took her time, I didn't feel rushed at all which was very refreshing, I left her office feeling more empowered and confident! I would definitely recommend her. She is very experienced in her field and it shows in the way she treat her patients.

Dr. Basile LISTENED TO ME! She had all of my medical records, but she still wanted to hear what I had to say before she ordered tests and made decisions. When the test results were ready, she carefully explained what I needed to know and didn't rush me through my questions. I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Basile is very patient, knowledgable and caring. She has brought my family and I through very difficult times and we are truly appreciative of her. If you are looking for a Hematologist/ Oncologist who will take her time with you as well as teach and treat you like you are the most important people in the world, you have found that in Dr. Basile.

We have been seeing Dr. Basile for a year now for our son blood issues. He also has numerous disabilities but she is so detailed in explaining everything and making sure you under what you are going through. I would give her a 10 for her kindness, professionalism, and making you feel you are her only patient that day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
