FORM Hand, Wrist & Elbow Institute


I can’t express how much I appreciate Dr. Besh and his office. I had 3 visits and therapy when it was determined that I needed surgery. Even though I was a little nervous and reluctant, his office made me very comfortable with my decision. When surgery finally came around they greeted me warmly and I was out within a half a day and at home, resting. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Besh and his staff. – Mary E.

I was referred to see Dr. Besh because of the severe pain I was having in both of my thumbs. I couldn’t open jars or even write for very long. He explained everything in detail and left nothing out so I knew what to expect. Thanks to the wonderful miracle surgeon Dr. Besh I am pain free. Everyone associated with Dr. Besh are wonderful and they treat you like family. If you want to be treated well and have a wonderful surgeon you must meet Dr. Besh. – Gloria G.

Another hospital had missed my fracture in initial diagnosis, however, Dr. Besh did an accurate first visit diagnosis for me. Dr. Besh gave an effective treatment plan with PT and pain management and my healing has been steady and amazing. He has amazingly courteous and professional staff. Overall extremely happy with Dr. Besh and his staff! Strongly recommended. – Vitals review

My wife shattered her wrist ice skating in Lake Tahoe just before Christmas. We decided to come back to the Bay Area to have the surgery performed. After reading great reviews about Dr. Besh we made an appointment. Dr. Besh took the time to explain the procedure and made us feel extremely comfortable before and after the surgery. He even returned a phone call to us on New Year’s Eve to make sure everything was well. – Jeff T.

THE BEST! I have only been seen for a broken metacarpal, but I am so over-the-moon in love with the care I have received at FORM from Dr. Besh’s staff. The care is excellent, and Dr. Besh was very professional, a warm person to speak with, and very understanding. I’m on mediCal and was able to see Dr. Besh because he sets aside his availability for people on state-funded care. I am forever grateful to Dr. Besh and his staff. A million stars. – Dosla J.

The care I received here not only from Dr. Basil Besh, but also the entire staff from the front desk to all the therapists. The care they provided me was just outstanding. Dr. Besh explaining my treatments was outstanding. I never felt like family from a health care provider ever in my life. I just want to thank all the staff at Dr. Besh’s office. Thanks once again everyone. – Christopher S.

For many of us who need relief from wrist and/or hand discomfort including carpal tunnel syndrome I can strongly recommend Dr. Basil Besh. He provides a complete and thoughtful diagnosis with medical care tailored specifically to your individual needs. Besides having great technical skill as a surgeon, Dr. Besh listens to his patients with compassion and understanding before deciding on the best method of treatment. – Paul S.

Dr. Besh is by far one of the most pleasant, competent, and efficient doctors I have had the pleasure of seeing. I made a new patient appointment with him for a broken wrist resulting from a snowboarding incident, and he was able to operate on me the very next morning. We need more well-rounded doctors like Dr. Besh, who have the necessary expertise without sacrificing bedside manner and sociability. You are in great hands with Dr. Besh. – Ashley S.

My visit with Dr. Besh was so informative. I was so scared to find out what was really wrong. I have carpal tunnel in both hands and trigger finger in my thumb. I was convinced I needed surgery in a hurry. Dr. Besh assured me that while yes I should have the carpal tunnel surgery, for the trigger finger, he gave an injection. I was scared. His nurse came in and made me feel better, she even held my hand (how awesome was that). – Vitals review
