What our patients say
" As an Occupational Therapist who has been suffering with a degenerative lumbar spine for 37 years, with no prior surgeries, I was apprehensive in taking the "step" in repairing my ailing spine. As an O.T., my specialty has been the spine, & I have seen plenty of poor surgical outcomes, especially when it comes to spinal fusions. I had an L5-S1 fusion, L4 laminectomy, and a synovial cyst removal. The surgery went perfectly, and the Dr. showed up in person in my hospital room the very next day to check on me. I was discharged the day after surgery, stopped pain meds on day 4, & I am recovering at a rate that is beyond all expectations. I would highly recommend Dr. Masel, and his staff for any and all neurosurgical procedures, especially when it comes to a complex surgery such as a spinal fusion. It's rare to find a group of caring professionals in the healthcare world we live in, such as Dr. Masel and his staff. "

" Dr. Masel is a very experienced Neurosurgeon. I have had two very successful surgeries performed by him, nine years apart. He removed a brain tumor from my sister and as of now, she has been determined to be Cancer free. He is well respected by other Physicians and staff that work with him and have worked with him in the past. I travel a long distance to see him as I know the trip is well worth following up a treatment plan with him. "

" Dr. Masel was referred to me after I ended up in the ER in Jan 2020. I was very pleased upon meeting with him initially as he listened to me and I felt heard about my pain/issue. I ended up having emergency spine/lower back surgery and was 100% confident the whole time. Dr. Masel and his team did an amazing job! I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing a neurologist/neurosurgeon. "

" Dr. Masel is wonderful. His manner is so positive, compassionate, and supportive. He is very knowledgable and knew right away how to help me with the back pain that I have suffered with for many years. Other doctors had just done multiple pain injections without treating the cause for the pain. I am still recovering from the fusion surgery I had six weeks ago; however, I can already tell that it is helping. The staff at Frisco Spine, especially Jessica, are awesome as well. Highly Recommended "

" I found Dr Masel very warm, informative and knowledgeable in my initial exam and consultation. We reviewed my ongoing condition and discussed my options going forward. He did nit try to influence my decision, just presented me with the facts and the best prognosis for my future. I felt very reassured once I left his office. His staff was friendly and patiently answered all my questions. I feel I am in good hands. "

" I am 62 years old and I just completed my 2 year post-operation checks with Dr. Masel. Dr Masel had performed extensive back surgery which included fusing/stabilizing a vertebrae and implanting a synthetic disc. The operation resulted exactly as the Doctor said it would. Dr Masel's assisting colleagues were also exceptional . After many years of constant pain and declining physicality, I am pain-free and very active! My family and I thank you Dr Masel for a greater quality of life. "

" Dr. Masel made sure to explain my diagnosis (brain tumor), surgery and recovery process in a manner that set my mind at ease. He took the time to sit with my family and explain the entire procedure from start to finish including his expectations post-surgery. He made my family feel at ease and comforted. Dr. Masel came to see me almost daily post-surgery and genuinely cared about my progress. He has a great bedside manner. Dr. Masel saved my life! Highly recommend. "
