1. July 12, 2021: Completed my final evaluation and sent last seven years of files to Clary Document Management where they will be retained for seven more years. Files of children born after July 1, 2010 will be retained until July 1, 2038 (until they are all age 21 or older). The office closes at the end of 2021.

  1. February 17, 2021: Will be closing my practice by the end of 2021.  I am doing consultations only after March 1, 2021, so no new referrals after March 1, 2021. All scheduled clients will still be seen.

  1. December 31, 2020: Brenda, who has been doing office billing since 2015 has moved to Florida and no longer able to continue with billing. Hope she enjoys those sunny warm winters!

  1. April 9, 2020:  I am now able to do evaluation by video for those living out of the Portland area. The video call must occur at a DHS office, not from home.  Call or email for details.

  1. April 2, 2020:  The office will reopen April 7, under modified procedures described in the March 20 update below.  (This is an allowed exception to Stay at Home for essential professional services). Appointments will only be held for those who can provide their own transportation to the office. If you had an appointment between March 24 - April 3, please call the office and leave your phone number so we can call to reschedule.  Appointments previously scheduled after April 7 may be rescheduled.

  1. March 23, 2020:  With the Governor’s Stay At Home order, the office is temporarily closed and all appointments are cancelled for now. Stay safe and calm.

  2. March 20, 2020: Coronavirus Update.  The office remains open for now but will close if the state implements shelter in place, which will require everyone to stay home with few exceptions. Office procedures have been modified to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Six foot social distancing will be maintained in the office. Clients will be physically isolated in their own room and will be interviewed from another room using in-office video. Please call the office if you have further questions about this.  Local restaurants and stores are closed.  Waiting room seating has been sharply reduced.

  1. December 2019:  Dr. Basham’s psychological assistant, Anna, has left for a full-time position elsewhere and will be greatly missed.  Send emails to links for Anna or Robert above for scheduling. Billing is done by Brenda, who works Monday afternoons.

                                                             PRACTICE IS CLOSED

I closed my clinical practice in March of 2021 after 34 years, during which time I had the honor of working with thousands of Oregonians of many ages and life circumstances. I appreciate the help of my office assistants and the many referrals sources over the years who helped to make my practice a success.

My custodian of records is Clary Document Management phone (763) 548-1320, They will retain all adult files for clients seen after July 1, 2014 until July 1, 2028. Files for those who were seen as children and were born after July 1, 2010 will be kept until July 1, 2038. Files prior to July 1, 2014 have been destroyed. If you are a client and wish to obtain a copy of your file, click here and download the release form, which you will need to get notarized to verify your identity: release form.
