I would NEVER recommend this doctor to anyone. My husband went to him with severe radiating headaches and was told him it was definitely a muscular problem without sending him for an MRI as I would expect would be protocol in a neurological center. As a result, my husband suffered thru a month of PT that this dr sent him for, when an MRI would have clearly shown that he had a massive growth in his nasal cavity. Within a month, my husband was dead no thanks to this dr's misdiagnosis.

I have been seeing Dr. Masterson since 1991 and have found him to be very caring and trustworthy. In all the time I've been seeing him, only once did I ever have to wait more than 3 - 5 minutes beyond my appointment time, and that was an emergency situation. I would and have recommended him to other people as an excellent dr. to see if you have back problems like I do.

I have been seeing Dr. Masterson for lumbar spine problems since 2001, he is caring, he explains everything you need, he takes the time to answer any questions you may have, and he is very punctual. In the instance where I have an urgent need, he always sees me within a day. When doing the injections he is calming and explaining everything to me. I highly recommend him.

I had a 10am appointment, and arrived 5 minutes early. There was a line to check in, so I didn't get to the admissions desk until 10:02am. I was informed that Masterson would not see me because *I* was late. They accepted no responsibility for the line. I asked to be seen anyway, and was told to take a seat. Twenty minutes later the Director of Physician Services approached me and asked how she could help. I said I'd like to see the doctor and she denied the request. Half a work day lost.
