Ratings for Dr. Brett L. Mason
Went in for a meniscus tear & he also smooth out some arthritic changes to the back of my knee cap. Was able to race my dog team when the snow came. Been getting cortisone injections to help keep the inflammation down in that knee. Very caring Doctor who pays attention to what is important to me.
Dr Mason is literally a miracle worker in my opinion. I went to Dr Mc Guire for a simple meniscus tear and I never healed correctly. I was in extreme pain for a year when I finally went to Dr Mason I found out I was bone-on-bone and needed a total knee replacement. Since I am young for a knee replacement, Dr Mason suggested a high tibial osteotomy to give me a good 10 years before the replacement. This is MAJOR surgery with a long recovery time. Dr Mason also suggested a custom brace as an alternative. I wore the brace for 3 months and then I chose to do the surgery. I can't believe how AMAZING I feel now. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Mason and if I had gone to him the first time I would have been SO much better off!
I entered surgery fo rotator cuff repair. A week later I was in the emergency room with a massive hematoma which damaged mr brachaicial plexus. What followed was more than a year of physical therapy, a 3 month total disability from work, and loss of function for my arm. Despite excellent therapy I still do not have full use of my right arm 20 months after surgery.
Dr. Mason is the Best! He has repaired my ACL in my right knee, repaired rotator cuff in my right shoulder, and recently repaired rotator cuff in my left shoulder. I am 100% happy and would highly recommend him for knee or shoulder repairs. He is the Doc that the Docs go to. That should say it all!
Came highly recommended from another respected MD in Alaska. Have seen Dr. Mason and his staff for three separate surgeries, two ACL knee surgeries and a shoulder operation. Dr. Mason knows how to relate to patients and make them feel comfortable in what can often be an unpleasant situation, but when it comes to the medical side of it he is all business and gives you honest straight forward advice. He doesn't have pre-planned recommendations for every injury, and will handle your situation on an individual basis for what's best for you presently and in the future. Have recommended Dr. Mason and his staff to many friends and family.
