in Plano, TX
Dr. Masel is wonderful. His manner is so positive, compassionate, and supportive. He is very knowledgable and knew right away how to help me with the back pain that I have suffered with for many years. Other doctors had just done multiple pain injections without treating the cause for the pain. ...more

Dr. Masel is a wonderful physician. I find him to be very personable & very easy to communicate with. I do have spinal issues & I do not believe that I will see anyone else even though difficult as I do not live in the same state where Dr. Masel's practice is located.

Dr. Masel preformed a surgery on my neck and did an incredible job. Him and the team in the OR were fantastic. I would highly recommend him.
