Patient Comments (14)
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. I am still recovering from the fusion surgery I had six weeks ago; however, I can already tell that it is helping. The staff at Frisco Spine, especially Jessica, are awesome as well. Highly Recommended

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.
in El Paso, TX |
I found Dr Masel very warm, informative and knowledgeable in my initial exam and consultation. We reviewed my ongoing condition and discussed my options going forward. He did nit try to influence my decision, just presented me with the facts and the best prognosis for my future. I felt very reassured once I left his office. His staff was friendly and patiently answered all my questions. I feel I am in good hands.

Dr. Masel was my 5th consultation and thankfully I chose the correct surgeon. The procedure L4 - L5 Lumbar Spine Fusion was a complete success and I have been released with no limitations. Dr. Masel was referred to me and I will refer him to you.

Dr. Masel always makes me feel important, he takes my medical needs as a genuine priority. Choosing Dr. Masel and his team for your care is definitely the right choice.
Frisco, TX |
I am 62 years old and I just completed my 2 year post-operation checks with Dr. Masel. Dr Masel had performed extensive back surgery which included fusing/stabilizing a vertebrae and implanting a synthetic disc. The operation resulted exactly as the Doctor said it would. Dr Masel's assisting colleagues were also exceptional . After many years of constant pain and declining physicality, I am pain-free and very active! My family and I thank you Dr Masel for a greater quality of life.
in Roanoke, TX |
Dr. Masel made sure to explain my diagnosis (brain tumor), surgery and recovery process in a manner that set my mind at ease. He took the time to sit with my family and explain the entire procedure from start to finish including his expectations post-surgery. He made my family feel at ease and comforted. Dr. Masel came to see me almost daily post-surgery and genuinely cared about my progress. He has a great bedside manner. Dr. Masel saved my life! Highly recommend.

in Garland, TX |
Made sure all my questions were answered. Explained my condition and recommendations. Knowledgeable and caring staff.
in Plano, TX |
May be a competent surgeon, but obviously failed bedside manner class. Pompous, uncommunicative, completely out of touch with the needs of his patient. Didn't return phone calls from me or the hospital nursing staff for FOUR DAYS. Committed to checking on his patient and was a no show. There must be equally competent surgeons in Dallas who know how to care for patients.
