What People Say About Dr. Thomas Masten, MD
Reply
I recently had a spinal treatment encounter with Dr. Masten and found him to be very knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. I am a pharmacist that has worked with many physicians in a wide variety disciplines and practice environments over several decades. Dr. Masten is, without doubt, among the best. I highly recommend him. John G.

I was a patient of Dr.Masten recently until he told me that he was trying to get his pt's off narcotics.So masten referred me to another doctor.Well come to find out.Masten is still giving his pt's pain meds.He gave me the impression that he was no longer giving out pain meds.So he left me to the wolfs to drown instead of keeping me on until he was officially not prescribing the pain meds.I've been in pain every sinceJune 2017 without pain meds or injections.I'm so disappointed in him.
