Review of Dr. Masser

- in Boise, ID |

Dr. Masser is verbally abusive to his RNs. He has had incident after incident in mistreatment of his nurses and comprises his patient care with his own personal life. I would highly recommend looking elsewhere for care.

Review of Dr. Huerd

-Boise |

Dr. Heurd took care of my Mom, and had he not took the caution and care he did, she would not have been here today. He is straightforward about what to expect good/bad and is definitely the guy you want when things are not going so good. Thank you Dr. Heurd for everything you did for my sweet Mom. She is doing well today thank goodness.

Review of Dr. Forbes

- in Nampa Id |

Had a great experience with Dr Forbes and his staff. Explained thing in a way anyone can understand. I had an emergency surgery via life flight and I owe Dr Forbes, the surgical team and his staff my life. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with cardo issues. Follow up after surgery were also excellent and he and his staff alway followed up when I had any concerns.

Review of Dr. Masser

- in Boise, ID |

I would recommend Dr. Masser to anyone who wanted a knowledgeable, professional and caring vascular surgeon. He answered my questions before I even asked them. The day of the procedure he came to talk with me before and answered a couple more questions I had. His staff was a delight to work with. The nurses who cared for me after the procedure love him. He is very honest and forth rite and confident. I like those characteristics in my doctors.

Review of Dr. Schoolfield

- in Meridian, ID |

He removed part of my lung. He was the best doctor I have ever had. His staff was excellent too. You can trust your life with him. He is easy to talk to and takes time to explain everything. He also does research! Truly ....they are the best! If only every specialist/surgeon could be like him and his staff!

Review of Dr. Masser

- in Caldwell, ID |

I do NOT recommend this Dr. to anyone! As a husband, my wife had a vein procedure earlier today and I was NOT allowed in after the procedure and she was bandaged up! I feel that as a husband, I needed to be in there so that I know what to do at home to take care of her! Dr Masser came out to introute himself and tell me how it went and told me that I could go back in 5 minutes. After 30 minutes my wife was in the lobby with the nurse telling me that he said nothing to her about me going in there

Review of Dr. Tullis

-Boise, ID |

Watch out! They are not clear about payment or how much things cost. They will trick you and then you owe a bunch of money.
