What People Say About Dr. Philippe Masser, MD
Dr. Masser is verbally abusive to his RNs. He has had incident after incident in mistreatment of his nurses and comprises his patient care with his own personal life. I would highly recommend looking elsewhere for care.

Dr Masser treats his RNs terribly. He is notorious for yelling and creating a hostile work environment. I would never recommend a friend or family member to him.
