Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Massey "Personally, I work to develop a partnership with my patients. On my part, this begins with listening. One of the most important things I need to know is how the unique problem affects the patient's life. We then develop a dialogue, through which the patients understand the diagnosis, their treatment options, and the recovery process. Patients help to guide their treatment decisions.

I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best choices about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process. Next, I want my patients to understand how their condition developed and how different treatments can improve the problem. When we consider treatment alternatives, I present a realistic outlook on the results we can expect to achieve. I'll also be honest about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I'll explain that choice as well."
