OUTSTANDING!!! Dr. Mason and staff are amazing. Suffering for 2 years and every test imaginable and Dr. Mason did not push me, very conservative, listened, studied up on my case, very knowledgeable, very caring, absolute awesome environment and listened to my concerns and explained and took time with me. He found some issues that no one else found and I believe I am on my way to healing. Melissa and Sarah are awesome and made me feel so comfortable. THEY ARE THE BEST!

I have had the pleasure of being under the care of Dr. Mason twice in the last two years. My first was breast cancer surgery, he and his staff were very informative. He is a very compassionate and caring surgeon, he cares about what happens when you go home. My second surgery with him was for Hemorrhoids, I was really scared about the pain that would come with it. I was pleasantly surprised as I have encountered no pain at all with the procedure he performed. I can't say enough about him.

Dr. Mason is wonderful! He made me feel at ease and is the perfect doctor when going through a difficult diagnosis. He and his staff made me feel as if I was the only patient he had and made me feel like family. I can only say wonderful things about him and his staff of two, both named Melissa. He is the best!!

Dr. Mason helped me understand what was going on in my situation and took the time to answer all of my questions. His office staff bent over backwards to accommodate my needs vs their schedule. I definitely felt like I was important and not a number.

Dr Mason is one of the most diligent, committed, caring, and dedicated doctors I've ever met and I honestly don't care for many doctors after so many years of dealing with them so that says alot coming from me. He and his staff are the most professional, compassionate people I've ever met and I'm always confident I will receive the best care while having surgery or being hospitalized. I can't express enough how caring he and his staff are to their patients. He's the best in Mobile, hands down!
