Dr. Masessa is wonderful ! I went for mohs surgery on my face and thought I was going to be deformed by the end of it he had to remove so much. He did unbelievable reconstructive surgery the same day. Has wonderful bedside manner ,made me feel very comfortable and his staff was just as great . I am so grateful for his expertise in his field .

I have never met this doctor in the 5 years I am going to them. Always a PA, and ALWAYS a re-taking sample of the damaged area. Can never receive a review of services / recap of diagnosed area without paying for a follow-up visit. After 2 visits I had to demand my records.

Love this doctor and his staff too!

I usually do not go on this web sites and write, but I was impressed with the way they took care of me, so I am here, writing about it. Staff was kind, took care of the referral that was needed for procedures the same day. When they brought me in the back, I was pleasantly surprised by the way assistants were taking my history and doing exam. I stated that I would like to see the doctor and he came in. He did the procedure, it was painless, easy, kept my worries away by engaging in conversation.

Dr. Masessa has taken good care of my aging skin for several years. He's the best!

At times the wait can be a little long, however, Dr. Masessa diagnosed a condition that I have been living with for years. No other dermatologists in south Florida were able to do that and I'm grateful for his knowledge and professionalism. Dr. Masessa treats a lot of veterans and has a soft spot in his heart for them.

Caring and professional. A very dynamic individual and great physician.

Dr Massess's bedside manner was extremely poor and the nursing staff were very unprofessional. Add to these complaints the fact that I ended up with a mrsa infection and one could understand why I would never recommend this Doctor or his practice to anyone.
in Myrtle Beach, SC |
I believe that he goes to the extreme when ordering surgery, radiation, etc. His office is overbooking and he spends only a brief time with patients. He also talks down to his staff and makes degrading comments to them.
