I found Dr. Massey to be very friendly. He explained what was going to happen in layman's terms. I was confident in his knowledge and experience based on what he told me in our meetings. After the procedure my knee felt really well except soreness from the surgery. My appointment with him after the surgery was excellent. He examined the knee and showed me pictures of my knee explaining what he did and what I could expect in the days following my surgery. He did tell me that I have arthritis in the knee and helped me understand that I would have that.. Appreciated his honesty. He also gave me a lists of the type of exercises I should do for my PT. I'm writing this about two weeks after the surgery and am very pleased with the results. Thanks Doc.

Dr. Massey performed a surgical repair to my lower leg. Throughout the entire process he made me feel at ease. He always answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed at any of my appointments. Additionally, all of his staff that I interacted were exceptional. I award him 5 stars.

Just wanted to say thank you so very much to Dr. Matthew Massey, MD! I broke my right pinkie toe at an impossible angle & was worried that it would heal back crooked or be sticking out to the side. My toe was x-rayed to find out where the breaks were, gently put back in place, buddy taped & I was given an orthopedic shoe for comfort. Dr. Massey was very thorough during my exams to make sure that I was healing back correctly/straight & explained/walked me through my healing process to where I could understand everything we were doing for my little guy! Thank you Sir for making this such an easy & pleasant experience, considering!

Dr. Massey one of the best doctors I have had. Great bedside manner, and each time I visited he explained every aspect of what to expect. My surgery was repairing hammertoe and bunion. I cannot take pain meds, he saw to it that I have altering meds. From the first night home through 5 weeks, my pain level was very minimal. Even the removal of the pin, I didn't feel it. Great doctor, I highly recommend him

He is rude jumps to his conclusion vs listening to your concerns. when his conclusion is ruled out than there's just nothing wrong with you. High and mighty attitude that your concerns are irrelevant because he's the doctor and you are not. He might be good for a already known issue but not good in actually examining, evaluating and finding out the cause of a problem. I got better informed about the problem from a physical therapist knowing body tissue connectivity better than Massey. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR!!

I am so grateful for Dr. Massey replacing my ankle. I was in misery every step that I took. I was also standing 5 to 6 hours working which made my ankle even more painful. My surgery was In October and it was a journey to get back to walking but, it was worth the time it took. I am able to do anything I was before having a problem. THANK YOU!

Dr Massey is an outstanding doctor. He was so kind and understanding and answered all my questions. He did surgery on my big toe and the next toe to it. My big toe was standing nearly straight up when I went to him. I had already had 3 surgery’s on it without good results. When he took off my bandage I was so happy I nearly cried. My toe was lying completely flat. Dr Massey was so compassionate and was very happy that I was so pleased. I had suffered so long I could not find words to tell him how grateful I was. I was also very satisfied with his staff who were always very kind and was truly concerned about me.

Dr Massey is top flight professional. He took time to listen, use technology available, and the properly diagnose the problem [bone chip floating in left ankle], and then perform the necessary procedure to correct the problem. He is a no nonsense, orderly doctor who is recognized by his peers "as one of the best" to do difficult procedures. Thank you Dr. Massey.

We cannot thank Dr. Massey enough for the care he has given my daughter. She suffered a traumatic tri-malleolar fracture with dislocation, which require surgery and hardware to repair. He was the second opinion we went for and my thirteen year old picked him because "he seems confident without being arrogant and he gets athletes and will help get me back to playing sports again." He has a matter of fact demeanor but is very kind and has taken awesome care of her. I was worried how the scar would look and prayed it would not look butchered (like some I have seen). Her scar is beautiful and will barely be visible. We cannot say enough good things about him through this experience.

I had a fractured great toe that a podiatrist had "watched" for three months. That toe was resting on the two adjacent toes, while I walked 5 miles a day and over cobblestone walkways throughout Normandy, Giverney, and Paris, France. The adjacent toes were very painful. The podiatrist offered me the option of amputating my second toe as a solution. I made an appointment with Dr, Massey and he fused this great toe in order to straighten it. That was on 28 May. I kept it elevated and rested it for three weeks but walked without bearing weight on it and best of all no pain post operatively.. I have been walking two miles a day without bearing weight on my forefoot for 6 weeks and today I started walking bearing weight on it for 2 1/2 miles, straight toe and NO pain. I am an 80 year old diabetic. KUDOES to Dr. Massey
