The BEST
I have seen Dr Massie for numerous issues over the past 15 years and he never fails to greet with a smile and a handshake. He informs me about all options and explains things well. He has a gentle and sincere bedside manner. To me, he is the very BEST there is.

Excellent care
This was a wonderful experience. I was given x-rays almost immediately upon my arrival, which was some 20 minutes before my appointment. I was then seen by Dr. Massie’s PA almost immediately thereafter and Dr. Massie himself within only a few minutes after that. I am very happy that my primary care physician referred me to Dr. Massie.

Very likely
Dr. Massey is always very helpful. He is always pleasant and smiling. He understood my pain and is going to do an MRI to verify that my hip pain is not caused by arthritis.

Excellent Orthopaedic Surgeon !!
I have been a patient of Dr. Massie for several years, and he always explains operations thoroughly to me, and NEVER rushes me to any decision. He tells me the facts as he sees them through diagnostic tests, Xrays, MRI's, and let's me choose the right time for me if an operation is needed. I really appreciate this approach. Not only is he an excellent surgeon, he is a very kind person to talk to, and he is empathetic to what you're going through. Without reservation, I would recommend Dr. Massie for any of your orthopaedic needs. At this point, I almost consider him family!

Dr. Massie took excellent care of me. I broke my ankle roller skating on Saturday and I was in a walking boot by Monday morning. Two months later, I can finally drive again, even with me not being the best patient. He’s great at his job!

Excellent, helps psychologically as well as physically. My internist referred me, then found several friends all with favorable results. Explains and encourages as progress through treatment. Back on the golf course today and resuming activities that were painful before with improved mobility. As patients we have to do our part too though along with the meds and treatment.
