Dr Bass is a good listener, makes sure we understand her message, engages our child in the conversation, and provides options for her care. We couldn't have dreamed of a more wonderful pediatrician for our kiddo.

Dr. Bass took a tremendous amount of time to talk to my daughter and to myself and her other parent. She also followed up with a call 2 days later with some further thoughts. Overall, she took our daughter's problem very seriously.

Dr. Bass is thoughtful, experienced and has such a gentle and kind bedside manner. She runs on time and never seems rushed. She answers all of our questions completely and gives helpful follow up information. I trust her completely with my child's health and am so grateful for the important work she and her staff do everyday.

*Dr. Bass continues to provide an extraordinarily high level of care. As my boys have grown, so has her level of direct interaction with them. While she continues to address my questions/concerns thoroughly, *Dr. Bass partners with my children in a way that give them voice and a tremendous sense of agency. We are so grateful for *Dr. Bass' excellent care!

I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania and my medical degree from New York University. I completed my pediatric residency at Montefiore/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and worked at Jacobi Medical Center as an assistant professor of pediatrics for seven years. I love my job as I get to help children and families every day. In 2005, I moved to Portland with my husband and son and joined Kaiser Permanente. I also have an appointment as adjunct assistant professor of pediatrics at Oregon Health & Science University.

About my practice

I work in the General Pediatric Department with special interests in cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and pediatric weight management. I enjoy the variety my practice presents and love watching my patients grow and develop from birth through adolescence. Forming partnerships with families is one of the things I enjoy most. I follow the immunization schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and believe it is safe for all children. I believe that healthcare doesn't end in the medical office.

How I thrive

I feel lucky to have wonderful family, good health, a job that makes coming to work fun, and to live in an amazing city. I run and hike trails with my dog, practice yoga and Pilates, and hang out with my son and husband as much as I can. In addition to my clinical work, I volunteer and teach in a variety of venues and participate in clinical research and advocacy for children.
