What People Say About Dr. Matthew Massey, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Massey was very attentive to my ankle injury and to my questions and concerns leading up to the surgery. Dr. Massey explained in detail the surgical process, after care and what to expect as I went through Physical Therapy. My only regret is that I wish that I had sought out Dr. Massey's expertise sooner. My ankle is now as strong if not stronger than it's ever been. I now have peace of mind by having a stable ankle as I had suffered many years with a very unstable ankle due to numerous previous injuries. I would easily recommend Dr. Massey for any foot/ankle concerns you may have.

I felt that my knee was in great hands from the beginning. Now I’m 7 weeks past surgery and I haven’t felt this good in years! Thank you Dr. Massey!

I came to Dr. Massey with chronic ankle instability in my right ankle that was causing severe pain. He concluded I needed to have what he called an "internal brace" put in after repairs were done to hold my ankle together more permanently to prevent anymore damage/instability in the future. This was, by far, the fastest recovery I have had for a surgery like this. I can't express how happy I am with the results on this surgery and everything Dr. Massey did for me!

I am a 56 year old woman. I broke 3 bones in my ankle. I was seen by Dr Massey. He is a wonderful surgeon with a great bedside manner. I am healing better than expected and views of my xrays online get exemplary comments on how well he repaired the breaks. I am extremely happy with my choice in Dr Massey! I would send my own mother to him!

Great Orthopedic Surgery! Would recommend anyone to Dr. Massey. Very caring and passionate about his work. My son surgery went well. It was back in September, day after surgery he was up walking like nothing ever happened. He healed very fast and has been on the go every since. Thank Dr. Massey, and I think my son Jerone (JJ) would same the same. Kretesha Hicks

We were sent to Dr. Massey when my 12 year old had a bad ankle break and sprain. We went to the Turtle Creek office and every visit was quick and easy, and Dr Massey was very personable. He and the staff made my son feel very comfortable. We would definitely recommend him.

I am a Soccer Referee and injured my meniscus during a match. From the first meeting I had with Dr. Massey, he was very welcoming and knowledgeable about my injury and his main focus was to get my knee fixed and healed quickly. Very satisfied with his experience.

Dr. Massey is a remarkable surgeon!!!! The meniscus disc in my knee was shredded. Dr. Massey performed surgery and I was putting weight on it right after surgery and walking without crutches the day after. I have only been in Physical Therapy for 3 weeks and my therapist says that I am at least 2 weeks ahead of where I should be, she and I agree that it is because of the exceptional skill of Dr. Massey!! Every person in his staff also deserves high praise!! Stephen Chilingirian

My daughter, who is also a medical provider, referred me to Dr. Massey after I injured my knee playing tennis. She is a runner and had also been examined and advised by Dr. Massey. I had surgery and followup physical therapy. Both Dr. Massey and the PT listened to me, became familiar with my lifestyle, and worked with me to get me back to doing all the activities that I enjoy doing. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Massey.

From my first visit with Dr. Massey, I felt very confident that I had the right Doctor. Doctor Massey was very clear on how he would treat my torn meniscus. My surgery went very well and my follow up therapy sessions enabled me regain my firm footing.

Dr. Massey was excellent. He took the time to explain the issues with my knee. He reviewed the MRI with me and explained what he could see that needed to be repaired. Post op he again took the time to show exactly what he was able to repair.

I am extremely pleased with the care I have received from Dr. Massey. I am new to the area and needed help with a foot problem. Back in Massachusetts the doctor wanted to do extreme surgery, 6 months recovery. Dr. Massey did a less invasive procedure and it went really well. 6 weeks since surgery and I couldn't feel better and am pain free. Thanks to Dr. Massey, Asheville Hand and Sport Medicine.

This was the best experience I have ever had with a Doctor. I work retail and standing for prolonged periods, squatting, sitting ad rapid motion are very important. I had torn my meniscus on my left knee. Because of Dr. Massey and his expertise, I no longer have the pain and feel reborn.

I have seen Dr. Massey regarding extreme pain in my foot. I was very pleased with the results of my surgery and walked without stopping in a 5 K marathon six weeks later. The pain is totally gone and... he does beautiful work! I can barely see the incision.
