Hollywood, Fl |
Very bad bedside manners. Would not recommend Dr. DeMassi at all. Does not explain anything to you, especially after surgery.

I recently had a spinal stimulator placed in my spine. God bless Dr De Massi. I couldn't stand for 60 seconds severe lower back pain and right leg sciatic nerve. I was a mess! I am on the road to recovery Thank God for Dr DeMassi I highly recommend him. Amazing Doctor!
in Hollywood, FL |
I had a seizure, multiple mini strokes, lupus flare all attacking my brain & convulsions which lead to a seizure that broke my spine almost in two. Dr DeMassi is WONDERFUL!! He explains everything, puts his patients at ease & when the time comes for surgery, he has checked on you so many times, he feels like a friend & w/ lupus, it takes A LOT for me to trust doctors, especially NEW doctors on the fly. HE IS THE BEST CHOICE!! Memorial's ahead of many hospitals regarding technology.
