I arrived in the ED with no idea that I had a life threatening brain tumor. Dr. DeMassi came to see me and saved my life. He removed the tumor and allow me to enjoy the rest of my life. I will forever be in his and his team's debt.

Dr DeMassi is amazing. I had Anterior Spinal Fusion over a year ago and have had no pain or issues since. I had been struggling with herniated discs and then degenerate disc disease for about 8 years. I saw 5 other doctors before Dr DeMassi who’d told me the operation was too complex and I could only manage my pain. But when I could no longer sit or stand for more than a few minutes without pain someone recommended him to me. He is kind, listens and inspires confidence. His team were wonderful and always prompt and helpful. There were no long waits in waiting rooms and they return calls quickly. This operation changed my life I highly recommend Dr DeMassi

Unfair to rate twice. Couldn’t avoid the irony. My son was operated on November 15. Still in hospital. Trying unsuccessfully to be in contact with Dr DeMassi. My son just received text message to confirm office appointment. Had no idea the appointment had been made. Phone call to office had informed them son is in hospital. Communication between doctor and patient doesn’t exist. Seems internal communication is just as bad!
