Was calling around checking on wait times and discovered BASS urgent care had only 5 min wait! Got in, saw Clayton (nice guy) and he took the time to listen and made me feel good about my choice to come here. This place is really nice, new equipment and clean. They take my insurance so I'll definitely be back for my f/u appointment.

Went as expected, no surprises or delay. Ruth was friendly and spoke well.
My appointment with Dr Shannon was a positive experience. I can say she really cares about her patients. I like her straightforward attitude and she doesn’t shy away from important questions.
Great; got in right away; and it was a good experience
I was seen by Shea, she was great! I walked in after a car accident, I was checked in and done with the nurse in only 15 minutes! Shea was super compassionate and ordered me an X-ray which was done in the clinic which is awesome! Glen, or I think that was his name, was a super-fast x-ray tech! Thank you all so much!
The staff is very professional and attentive. I’ve been receiving care at the Dublin location for a few months now, and their whole staff has gone above and beyond to assist me with my treatment. Thank you StatMed Dublin.
