Biography

Dr. Basel considers himself very fortunate to be able to do what he does. Not only does he get to work in a field that he is passionate about, but he is afforded the opportunity to meet people who have been searching for answers, which he can frequently provide, to help them understand why they have the health concerns that they do.
