Dr. Massey is extremely knowledgeable and has diagnosed my rather complicated problems when others could not, partly because he listened to what I said and took that into consideration when he was examining me. He has a wonderful bedside manner, putting you at ease, even while performing painful procedures on you so that you can cope with the situation much more easily. He explains things in a clear way, making sure you understand. He does not treat you as though you are not intelligent or educated enough to understand. He never gives the impression that he must rush to get to the next patient, but takes all the time he needs to take care of you. He seems to genuinely care about his patients.
After months of seeing idiots in Florence, SC I came to this physician. Not only were they competent but friendly and.... I just really cant say enough good things about Dr. massey and their staff and Providence hospital. They were are wonderful. If you are lucky enough to get this doctor you will write a review better than this one. WONDERFUL PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was my first apointment and colonoscopy with Dr Massey. I serched him out from other DR's in the Palmetto Health Care Directory beause I wanted a very excellent gastrointeroligest to preform my colonoscopy seeing that I had it burst in jan of 06. Dr Massey is a very caring and from the old school of DR's where he doesn't rush through a procedure, He takes him time, Which is very important to me. We need to slow down and go back to the old way of Doctoring where we are more then just a number. I am really glad I found him down here. I will return to his practice again and recommend him to my friends highly.
