Dr. Nathan Massey, MD
When you come to see me as your physician, you are trusting me with your most important asset – your health I strive to listen patiently to your concerns and seek to provide a prompt and thorough evaluation and treatment in the most cost-conscious and evidence-based manner, while remaining compassionate for your needs. I also strive to provide the highest quality endoscopy examinations, consistently exceeding the highest quality indicators for colonoscopy: Reaching the cecum > 99.9% of the time (complete colonoscopy exam) "Withdrawal time" averaging > 8 minutes (thorough colonoscopy exam) Polyp detection rate of 50% (allowing for better prevention of colon cancer) Following national guidelines for colonoscopy screening and colon polyp surveillance exams (preventing excessive exams) These are factors that you likely have never considered before when choosing who performs your colonoscopy or endoscopy exam, but there is more to a good colonoscopy than just being well sedated or comfortable.Insurance companies are beginning to assess the quality of care that physicians provide and you should too – after all, it's your life.

No one enjoys come to these places, but if one must, I have to say, they don't come any better! Dr. Massey is, without a doubt, one of the finest physicians I've ever met in my life. His bedside manner is peerless. He made me feel comfortable and assured before I ever received the sedative. He talked with me in a confident, gentle, professional manner that made me feel brave enough to ask any question. As busy as I could tell he was, he never rushed out conversation. A+++
