    Dr. Mason is excellent, however his admin staff is poor. They made an appointment for a time when he was not in the office and have consistently failed to respond to requests for medicine updates at my Dad's assisted living facility. Would highly recommend Dr. Mason as a physician, but unfortunately would advise avoiding his practice if you have someone in need to remote communication, such as at an assisted living facility.

    I found Dr Mason a few yrs ago when new in town. A Walk in clinic and Pvt pts provider how Wonderful... He turns out to be very kind ,caring, and professional and most of all a good listener. Quick at what he does due to experience. If no ins.He recommendeds options for cheaper places for test to be done.He is all about the community. His dedication to pts concerns have pulled me thru a few things.I really respect him and thank him for services given so far.

    I have been seeing Dr. Mason for many years. I could not have chosen a more qualified, compassionate, skilled doctor on my own. I had seen two other PCPs before my cardiologist urged me to start seeing Dr. Mason after open heart surgery. The other two doctors were part of a major doctor network which relied on volume, and completely misread issues I was experiencing. I am so fortunate my cardiologist recommended Dr. Mason. If a Premier Cardiologist family sees him. That is a recommendation.

    I visited Dr Mason for the first time, since I am looking for a new Dr, being new to the are. His Clinic offers emergency and walk ins. I think it is great concept. I liked his staff and the new patien process was rather easy and punctual. He was thorough and had great beside manners. I just wish the clinic was cleaner. It looked and smelled more like a veterinarian clinic. The place looks tired and in need of face lift. I hope they pay more attention to the physical state of the clinic.
