Dr. Mastey was thrust into a difficult situation when my condition took a sudden turn for the worst when my attending physician was out of town. An unidentified infection required the amputation of my left index finger on an emergency basis. His bedside manner was amazing. The personal attention he devoted to my case was well above anything I have experienced in the medical profession. He made the right decision in the amputation. The results have been phenominal. This was a ray amputation where the index finger bones are removed almost to the wrist. It's been 8 months now since the operation and it's amazing that nobody even notices that the finger is gone. The scar is almost invisible, the hand is contoured so smoothly that it looks like a normal hand. Dr. Mastey is a caring professional who made me feel totally at ease before and after the surgery. His surgery on my hand is like a work of art. I highly recommend this man if you require hand surgery.
Excellent doctor. After surgery, he called me in the afternoon to check on me and was available for help 24 hours a day. Would never go to another doctor for hand or shoulder issues; Dr. Mastey is excellent in every aspect.
Very plesant experience with Dr. Mastey. He personnally followed up the day after surgery. Will use again (if needed) and highly recommend.
Dr. Mastey has a very good bed side manner and went out of his way to make sure that I understood what was going on with my hand and that everything was going well for me after the surgery. I would definitely recommend him to everyone.
One of the best doctors I have ever had. Had a severe compound fracture in my left arm from a UTV accident. Dr. Mastey put my arm back together and was able to restore full arm and hand function. Great personality! Highly recommend!!
I have been going to Dr. Mastey for several years. He has always been able to determine how to help me. I have never had any problems from surgery or treatments. The staff are very kind and efficient. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a great doctor.
The most memorable is that Dr. Matey took care of my Dupuytren's contracture which has produced tremendous relief for me. With prompt, professional service by all involved, this is how medical practices should operate.
DR. MASTEY WAS VERY HELPFUL AND INFORMATIVE .
I liked the fact that he listened to what I had to say, looked at x-rays, and then he decided the best course of action. Each visit he has made sure I was comfortable with what he thought was going on with my issue. Most important his first thought wasn't to do surgery - he talked with me regarding each option and the stages he thought would be our best course of action. I would highly recommend him to others.
Had to have surgery on my finger. Had a great experience and would recommend them to anyone!!!
Dr. Mastey took care of the growth on my arm and was very thorough in explaining what was going on and what I should expect. My two scheduled visits required minimal wait. The only time I had to wait was for an unscheduled rewrap and I unfortunately could not wait the time required to get me in for that. But the presurgery and follow up visits were fine. Thank you!
I am very satisfied with results of surgery, physical therapy was quite painful but tolerable
Dr. Mastey explained to me in great detail why my elbow caused me pain, what he could do to relieve that pain, and what to expect going forward. I'd recommend him for any procedure to a friend or family member.
Dr was great. Practice was very busy so there was often a wait to see him. Very friendly and thorough. Did what he told me too and was nearly 100% in 4 weeks.
Dr. Mastey was very kind, patient and knowledgeable. He diagnosed my condition right away. He had great "chairside" manner and answered every question with simple and then complex answers (if asked for). I would recommend him to anyone with hand issues. It is a very busy office with several doctors. I was in the office almost 2 hours the first visit and 30 minutes the second visit. If the parking lot is full, you WILL be waiting awhile.
Dr, . Mastey is very professional, attenative and your problems are his biggest concerns. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing his professional services.
Dr. Mastey Is a great doctor. He has fixed my shoulder and both hands. No more pain :)
Dr. Mastey met me in tears. I had be dealing with shoulder pain for over six years. All the Dr.'s I had seen ( which was many), told me there was nothing wrong. Had a mri done and took it to him. He fixed it two weeks later. I have had no pain other than from surgery.
Dr. Mastey did reconstructive surgery on my hand. Taking the tendon from my arm and putting it in my wrist, removing a bone spur and fixing my carpal tunnel. I have No Pain and full mobility of my hand since the Surgery. I'm so Glad I chose him for my Surgeon and will again if I need any other Surgeries in his Field.
This doctor was knowledgeable and inspired confidence. I was a bit nervous, since I type for a living, about having hand surgery, but he carries himself with a firm sense of confidence. He's not a time waster, but he listens to questions and answers concisely but fully. Whiel I hope to never need his services again (for obvious reasons), I will definitely go back to him for anything hand or write related in the future. This doctor's office, Center for Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics, not only is almost always on time. The few times they have been late they've actually had the time late on the sign in sheet so you can plan around it. this is pretty amazing considering how BUSY this office is. Talk about planning the work and working the plan!
My elderly father had a compound open fracture above the wrist, from a fall. Dr. Mastey did an amazing job in surgery, and in two weeks Dad's arm was almost completely healed. The attitude of the Dr and his staff made the things we went through so much easier. They care about their patients. Thank you!
Dr. Mastey is a very personable and thorough orthopedic specialist After exam and testing, he takes time to discuss his diagnosis and findings and answer any question you might have. He follows up on subsequent visits and discusses needs for follow up care. I sincerely appreciated the excellent care he gave me and recommend him for orthopedic conditions.
Great results from visit to Dr. Mastey for treatment of Duputren's Contracture on my ring finger on my left hand. Although somewhat skeptical, I decided to go ahead with Dr. Mastery's recommendation of Xiaflex injection. This was a great decision on my part. Duputren's Contracture is gone! I appreciate the fact that Dr. Mastey did tell me that it could reoccur at some future time, but should that happen, I will return for another injection. Not only would I return to Dr. Mastey, I have recommended him to a close friend who also has this same condition.
I cannot say enough good about my experience with Dr. Mastey and the services offered by him and the physical therapy division of CSMO. I am new to the Chattanooga area and broke my wrist in a car accident. I chanced upon Dr. Mastey (something I will be eternally grateful for) and have rave reviews for his care, concern, ability and for the friendliness and efficiency of his staff. I would highly recommend CSMO.
Dr Mastey explained the MRI and X-rays to me in an understandable manner, went over my options and suggested a non-surgical step to see if there was any improvement. I felt he provided me all the time I needed even though it was after 5pm. This was my first visit with him and I am hopeful this is mode of operation. A good experience.
I've seen Dr. Mastey over the years for various things such as carpel tunnel, tennis elbow, thumb cartilage injury, etc. and have always found him to provide top notch service to me. Today's visit had me sitting in the waiting room a full 5 minutes !!! Wow, I didn't even have time to pick up a magazine and in no time Dr. Mastey came in to check on my injury. My sons and wife have all seen Dr. Mastey and he's the only Doctor in town I'd see about a hand/arm injury.
I came in with a fractured radial head that had popped out of its cap. Dr. Mastey explained all of my options along with the possible repercussions of each choice and gave me time to consider my choice. He was then able to manually put it back into place. No surgery! Hooray! I also appreciated the way he recorded his notes of our visit in front of me, so I knew everything that was happening. After only four-five weeks of physical therapy I had full use of my arm again. It now straightens and bends as well as it did before. I would definitely go to him again, if needed, and would recommend him to anyone else that asked.
So I broke my hand Olympic lifting while I was training with my coach and waited 11 MONTHS to go to the Dr so after it really started to hurt I went and the family medicine dr basically said I was screwed but he sent me to Dr. Masty and he was saying we have to do surgery on it so my scaphoid was rotting so he had to scrap it out and put bone graph in it and put a huge screw in it. The surgery went well and I'm completely healed up. GREAT DR. Also if you have to get scaphoid surgery keep in mind that the bone is hard to get blood flow to it so the healing process is long. I was in a cast for nine and a half months but it was worth it.
Dr Mastey is a professional, caring and compassionate physician. He treated me for radial carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. He thoroughly explains procedures and medications. He also takes time at each appointment for idle chit chat - nothing significant or too long - just a personal touch to his practice. He has a subtle, unexpected sense of humor too. I find that refreshing.
Dr. Mastey performed surgery on my shoulder with excellent results. Only 5 weeks post-surgery I have full range of motion and can sleep on my left side without any pain. Dr. Mastey is excellent, he listens well, and is very compassionate.
I fell in April and reinjured my left wrist. The wrist was already out of line and was crooked. Then I masked it and it was a mess. I wanted someone at Sports Medicine and I was fortunate enough to get Dr. Mastey. He was wonderful. He not only corrected this injury, he fixed the other one so now my hand is straight. I would recommend him to anyone! He took time to explain to me what I had done and what my options were. His staff at Gunbarrel is wonderful. I told my husband if I fall again, I sure hope it falls in Dr. Mastey's range of expertise. Lynda
My overall experience was horrible. He did my surgeries within two weeks of each other and after the surgery stated I could return to work the next day in cast and being in pain. After the cast came off, I told him that my hands were not healing probably and he told me that he had done a great job. When I told him that my hand was numb, he stabbed me with a paper clip and said be careful how you communicate. I told him my hand was numb not without feeling. When he stabbed me with the paperclip, he made me hit my hand on the desk which I still have the indention in my hand and still numbness in my left hand. I went to him on 3/28/12 in severe pain due to me typing repetitively to update my resume and he told me that typing could not cause my pain and that he could not do anything for me. I asked he would give me something for the pain and he told me that if he could not diagnois my pain, there was nothing he could do. The only thing he did was an xray and told me to leave. I have tried to get another doctor, but because it was court ordered for him to be my doctor in the settlement with workmen's compensation, I can not get help for my continuous pain in my hands. Therefore I feel he is a doctor for profit for workmen's compensation by giving low ratings on your injuries so he can get kickbacks on saving them money.
Dr Mastey has been caring for my hands for quite a while. He is compassionate, understanding of the problems created by deterioratng joints and is extremely gentle.
Dr. Mastey has performed 3 surgeries on me. in 2007, he performed carpel tunnel surgery on both of my hands. He just completed rotator cuff repair surgery on my right shoulder. In all 3 surgeries i have experienced a surgeon who is very thorough and professional. He has always shown a very courteous and caring manner. He was especially nice to my wife in assuring her that I would recover like I should and I did. the office visits prior to and following the surgeries were very pleasant. Thank you Dr. Mastey
My overall experience was great. Dr Mastey is brilliant and caring. I was very confident and at ease with my surgical procedure. Thank You Dr. Mastey.
Dr. Mastey has treated my daughter and myself. Very thorough, knowledgeable - excellent surgical outcomes . . plus a very caring and compassionate person!!
