Tampa, FL |
Never use this doctor. Her office billing department is unprofessional and behaves inappropriately. Due to errors on the part of her office and without notice (it's been 3 years since my procedure), she sent an extremely high, incorrect bill to a debt collection agency. When I attempted to question the bill, her office staff admitted to the error, stated that they would not help me resolve the issue until it was convenient for them, and admitted to not knowing if the debt was even mine. Terrible

Amazing surgeon and person....she saved my life in many ways, Iooking back at the last 6 months of surgery,chemotherapy and radiation. I could not have done it without her. Dr Masse held my hand through the fire as she calls it... and she told me that I would be ok... I am in remission from my breast cancer...I can't thank her enough for her amazing warmth and comfort through this entire night mare. Thankyou Dr. Masse

I was referred by my primary doctor upon arriving I presented my insurance card, DL and was eventually seen by the doctor after about an hour. I was later told that week they stopped taking my insurance and I was responsible for the visit. Because I needed surgery I had to see another Dr. and Masse's report could not be used so I was stuck paying for an 2 office visits.

went in for a simple procedure...left hospital 4 days later...no procedure...didn't see Dr. Masse for the last 2 days and when questioned by a nurse, she told the nurse to send me home. Not a positive experience

Masse in conjunction with another surgeon operated on my husband in 2013 for colon cancer that had spread to the liver. We were in shock that he had this cancer and that it had spread. We watched as they wheeled him to his room and we were sobbing. Dr masse came down the corridor talking on her phone and completely ignored us, kept talking while waiting for her elevator. And every time I passed her on my way to visit him, she did not acknowledge me or offer comfort. She is s pompous jerk....cold
I found and contacted Dr Masse to fix my hernia. I chose her due to the excellent reviews she received from this site. I'm very glad to have found her. I admire her professionalism and the fact that she is very personable and has a great sense of humor. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of surgery. I can't believe that there are any bad reviews written about her, if there are, they are probably written by ill tempered folks who just love to complain. Don't you believe it

When I was diagnosed with Male breast cancer in 2012. She calmed my nerves, and took such great care of me. Her wait time I thought in the beginning was long, but after I realized what kind of doctor she was I gladly wait! Without a doubt she is a kind hearted surgeon. If you're looking for the best general surgeon Look no farther! She is very informative, and what other doctor gives you her personal cell phone if you need her she's only a phone call away. Thx for saving my life!

I was referred to Dr.Masse by friends and between that and good reviews decided to use her to perform an umbilical hernia repair. I've had complications with the mesh used and have not gotten a clear answer as to which mesh was actually used. After my follow up visit where I waited two hours with an appointment she stated she would call me back, I have yet to receive that call back. If your looking for a trustworthy Doctor, look else where. It's clear with this type of care, your only $$$

This angel saved my life. Took the time to explain what happened and what was to come. Doctors like her are few and far in between. You will not be disappointed.

Dr. Masse is the most caring, compassionate Dr. I have ever been to. She treats you with respect, is very knowledgeable in her field, and puts you at ease with her wonderful humor. I can't imagine going to anyone else for my surgery needs. She is truly a Godsend and more doctors should be just like her. Thank you Dr. Masse for all that you do to help every patient you come across. You are truly an Angel! And you are also highly respected by other doctors, and that speaks volumes!

Because of Dr. Masse I am here today. DR. MASSE SAVED MY LIFE!. I was close to death by the time she operated on me due to some bad mesh that was put in my stomach 5 yrs ago. My husband and I think she is the best surgeon that we have ever come across. She's pulls no punches. She tells you what she thinks. We have the utmost respect for her and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone. Because of what she did for me she will always be considered a member of our family. Neale & Sharon Coates

almost one year to the date (1/26/2015) Dr. Masse saved my life! I was rushed into the E.R. at Wellington Regional Hospital, and after approximately six hours of surgery I was still alive after suffering from a lower bowel obstruction that was on the verge of killing me. Had she not been there, chances are I would have died. Since that fateful day, Dr. Masse has performed one additional major surgery (that I'd prefer not disclosing it's nature), and one more, not too terrible.
