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.
