Care Philosophy

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.Read more

I am a 67 year old female with arthritis in my right knee. It's bone on bone and can be painful at times. I received a series of three injections of Orthobisc. My knee is better but will probably have to reschedule in a few months. Dr. Massey was very personable and I have enjoyed meeting he and his staff. I will definitely schedule again when I'm ready. My only problem is that it's an hour and a half drive. But, he's worth it!

I want to recommend Dr. Massey to everyone. Because of his surgical skills I was walking normally within 3 months of his putting a plate and 8 screws in my fibula after a displaced fracture. He and his staff we very helpful during this stressful period of my life. Please consider using him for any lower leg needs.

Dr. Massey is friendly, caring, and more than willing to take time to explain what's happening with my arthritic knees. I feel confident he is helping me understand the treatment options I have and is commited to helping me. I have been very pleased with the results.

Dr Massey is the only doctor in Asheville doing the PARS technique for achilles rupture. He did a great job explaining the process and stayed on top of my recovery. I am 3 months out from surgery and starting back to some athletic activities. I was originally scheduled for the open procedure but luckily I found Dr Massey and have had great results. Could not image doing open surgery worrying about infection and a big scar. Didn't have these worries and I only have a 3 cm scar. Go to Massey

My friend is a nurse and told me he's the best. He answered all my questions and it didn't take long to get in to see him. Dr. Massey told me all the options for treating my ankle injury. He did an MRI to confirm my problem and after surgery I'm doing so much better!
