Ratings for Dr. Sally Basta
Dr. Basta caught my kidney cancer on my first visit to her office. Rather than relying on intuition she ordered diagnostic tests which led to the discovery, I am now cancer free following a radical surgery. In addition, she listens to you, and when not sure of diagnosis, orders diagnostic tests or refers you to a specialist . Thank you for being smart, Dr. Basta..
Dr Basta was our family doctor (myself and my spouse) for 4 years and she was "ok" until she had her kid and then moved to Mississauga. It was convenient for us because her office was close to our home in North York, plus she is a very nice person, however she missed a few things that in our opinion were unacceptable like urinary and ear infections, extremely low vitamin D levels, etc. Plus she doesn't always refer you to a specialist, even if you insist. After she moved to Mississauga things got more challenging for us then we decided that was time to move to another family doctor. In a nutshell: she is nice, as a doctor she is ok as long as you stay on top of your own health and do proper follow ups and ask questions.
Dr. Sally Basta is truly like a breath of fresh air in the GP world here in Mississauga. She is observant, takes the time to listen carefully to your woes and then prescribes medication and refers you to a specialist if needed (the referral staff is very competent and gets you an appointment at the earliest, if necessary). I would strongly recommend Dr. Basta. I have been to doctors who refer to their smart phones to plot a course of treatment and thereby go with whatever recommendations whatever site they consult suggests - radical or not. I am 60 years young and have been to doctors all over the world and hence my recommendation,
First off, I went off some of these online ratings and was totally misled. Sally Basta is not the greatest doctor and I would stay away. For one she is at the north york location only 3 days of the week which doesn't help. She is fairly inexperienced and prefers to experiment with medications/treatment before referring you to a specialist. I am never going back to her.
