I was so disappointed in the surgical process, Even as a nurse, I was treated very poorly by his staff, After surgery I was left alone for several hours and my husband kept trying to get me help and the staff ignored the call light. I had such high hopes for Dr. Mason, but his whole staff is rude in the office and don't act like they care. Forget follow up care after the initial visit, and be very cautious financially! VERY EXPENSIVE facility

Dr. Mason listens, he really listens. He is kind, does not dismiss my concerns or questions and gives me the feeling he is looking out for me. What more can I ask? He's great.
