Corpus Christi, TX |
I underwent a 360 lumbar spinal fusion with excellent results. I am completely pain free and very appreciative of Dr. Masciale for this life changing surgery. Not many surgeons perform this procedure because it requires collaboration with a general surgeon for the anterior portion of the procedure. He has been working with the same surgeon, Dr. Juan, for many years and they have it down to a science. I couldn't have dreamed of a better outcome. I give Dr. Masciale my highest recommendation.

I DO NOT KNOW HOW GOOD OF A SURGEON THIS GUY IS BUT HE SURE IS ARROGANT. HE NEEDS TO BE REMINDED THAT IT IS WE, THE PATIENTS WHO PAY HIS SALARY AND HE NEEDS TO BE MORE RESPECTFUL OF OUR NEEDS. I FOR ONE WILL NOT BE RETURNING. THERE ARE OTHERS WHO WILL SEE MY BUSINESS. I AM A BUSINESSMAN AND IF I TREATED MY CUSTOMERS LIKE HE DOES, I WOULD NOT STAY IN BUSINESS FOR LONG.

Had complicated reconstructive spine surgery with excellent results. I appreciated the care he took for matters like infection control. He was proactive. Also, he is concerned with blood loss and returning your own blood back to you. The staff is excellent and returns calls. I am impressed that anyone could be in such good humor at 5 a.m. as Dr. M. He is a very put together, knowledgeable surgeon. I have never encountered anyone with a bad word about him. A surgical master.
