Back, Neck, Spine
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Massey.
“Our first visit and we liked the facility, staff, and doctor. We are eager to continue with the doctor in hope to find some relief for our daughter.”
– Ashley G.
“I consulted with Dr. Massey concerning an ongoing problem with sciatica caused by a herniated dick I had operated on about 12 years ago. He had helped me with this several years ago recommending successful physical therapy. However, since the spinal degeneration has been progressing, it was time to check in again. Dr. Massey back suggested we start with additional therapy but warned that spinal injections and ultimately surgery might be necessary. So far, the treatment is working, and we will have to see how long its effects last. I am continuing the recommended exercise program. I have been thrilled with Dr. Massey's recommendations and believe that they have been effective in postponing more drastic solutions. I have been very pleased with your organization and have recommended you to several people over the years.”
– Frederic H.
“Dr. Massey listened to my explanation of pain and referred me for an x-ray. He then sent me for an MRI to get a better idea of the issue (something my previous ortho person did not do). He recommended physical therapy. Although I had previous bad experience with PT in Philadelphia, I said I was willing to try again. He referred me to ATI in Little River. I'm still not back to doing what I could do three years ago, but I saw a significant improvement in my systems after 20 sessions at ATI.”
– Diane C.

“Previously had L3-L5 surgically joined, but started to have problems with severe pain a few years ago after doing some heavy lifting during a household move. I sought diagnosis and treatment from a noted local neurologist who waved me off and was more interested in providing pain meds. Saw Dr. Massey who 1) listened to me, 2) used the x-ray to determine that screw had broken in L5 rod attachment and that L2& L3 had compressed, and then 3) operated to sever the rod between L3&L4 and then rejoin L2&L3 after relieving the compression. Now five months later, the pain has been remarkably mostly vanquished and most motion restored. Couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Dr. Massey combines intelligence with the ability to listen to the patient, diagnose problems, and expert surgical skills to fix issues.”

“I was relieved of all horrible expectations. The nurses were extremely professional and amicable. Their boundaries and care were perfect. Dr. Massey had a professional attitude and was caring, soft and friendly despite the news I received from my MRI. I have seen many physicians who never mentioned the observations that Dr. Massey said. His honesty was refreshing. I feel very comfortable and safe in his and the staffs' hands. I am looking forward to working with him — a wonderful experience.”
