What People Say About Dr. Theodore Mason, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease five years ago, but sedative treatments made the vertigo, nausea, and hearing loss worse. Dr. Mason carefully reviewed my history, then changed the diagnosis to include vestibular migraine. His prescribed treatment worked within a week, and I have been symptom-free for over six months. I am impressed by his manner and clear explanations. I am so relieved to have my hearing, energy, and well-being restored, using his simple, non-invasive plan.

Like most patients facing ear surgery that I hadn't planned on, I was very apprehensive. After meeting with Doctor Mason and his team, I was convinced that I was in very capable hands and had made the right decision to have the surgery. He answered all my questions in a professional yet caring manner. He and his team put me at ease prior to the surgery, the day of the surgery, and continue to treat me with kindness and care as I heal. The surgery was a success.

The clear expertise of Dr Mason and his team proved very helpful in making me comfortable with decision to have the procedure. I was very apprehensive at first but they answered all my questions with a thoroughness that indicated years of well-informed experience. Additionally, their medical excellence was paralleled by a sensitive and supportive bedside manner. The outcome was successful and life altering.

Because a lot of negative things were written on the internet on cochlears I was apprehensive about the whole process. Dr Mason during our first meeting sat and not only explained everything but ensured that all of my questions were answered to my satisfaction and understanding. On the day of surgery he again allayed any fears that I had. He also kept things light and enjoyable. He is a fantastic surgeon and Dr. He makes his patients feel special and a friend.

Dr. Mason is a skilled surgeon who also has an excellent bedside manner. He explained the sources of my hearing deficit and all of my options for treatment. He took the time to clarify why an earlier procedure I had, (with a different doctor), caused so much discomfort and why the procedure he recommended would likely have a different result. He calmed my anxieties about the procedure and the possible results and helped me make a decision that felt right for me. Best recommendation--I can hear!

I sat here for twenty minutes trying to think how I feel about Dr. Mason in 500 words or less. Can't be done. FANTASTIC, WONDERFULL, BRILIANT, GREAT etc... The surgery went great. I came out of anesthesia hearing things I haven't heard in over 50 years. He made me feel very comfortable and explained everything in detail. I have already recommended him to several people and will continue to do so.

Dr Mason is very nice. He takes time with you and explains everything. My daughter recently had surgery and was taken care of in the Hospital by Dr.Mason and his team . They were all attentive and very caring. Also my Mother goes to DR MAson and he is very nice to her. I can't say enough about how great of Doctor he is. In my experience he is one of the nicest Doctors I have ever seen. My daughter had surgery and had the best outcome as a result of his care.

My experience with Dr. Mason was excellent. Not only did he help me get my hearing back after a traumatic accident but the service he provided was great. He cares and remembers everything I was going through. Some doctors can get lost in all the patients they have but not Dr. Mason. He listens to what you have to say and addresses your needs with ease and care. I felt like I could completely trust every decision about the care I needed that he gave me.

I know he has a lot of experience in doing the implant surgery but his "expertise" goes well beyond the surgery. The meetings before, during and after surgery were very informative. I feel like I had everything I needed to make and informed decision with no pressure. What a change in my life. Thanks Doc!!
