Having just gone through 3 major surgeries including a mastectomy all conducted by Mr Masannat I can say with confidence that I am more than satisfied with the bedside manner, information, and post operative care I received at all stages of my ordeal, he explained in detail what was going to take place and always made me feel confident that I could question the prognosis and make informed decisions accordingly. I would recommend to anyone who is having this procedure to have Mr Masannat as their surgeon. Jennifer Sutherland.
Recently I was diagnosed with breast cancer and Mr. Masannat was my surgeon. I can highly recommend Mr. Masannat, I met him the day before the operation and he was caring and compassionate and explained the whole procedure well and answered all questions that I had and also makes you feel comfortable. Mr. Masannat came to see me the morning of the operation and was there when I woke up afterwards which was very reassuring as the whole process is very daunting and scary. Much care was taken for position and size of the incision which has made recovery from that point of view much easier than first explained to me by a different surgeon. I have full trust and confidence in Mr. Masannat, he inspires confidence and has a great manner and also deals with the difficult issues with a smile and if appropriate humour. Thank you, I am very grateful for the care I have been given and from the whole fantastic team at the ARI from the minute you arrive till you leave, it is awe inspiring how they manage to do it, I do hope that Mr. Masannat will remain the person that I continue to have my annual follow up visits with.
I highly recommend Mr Masannat, he provided me with exceptional care, advice and surgery. I truly believe Mr Masannat saved my life, had it not been for his thorough investigation, fast action and surgical expertise, I feel my journey may have been very different.
I met Mr Masannat and his team a few weeks ago. I was very grateful to Mr Masannat understanding my concerns. Previously, I have had to attend the clinic for regular mammograms and check ups every year. I was then told the policy had changed, and I did not have to attend for another 5 years. I did not really understand the rationale for this change given an underlying condition. In fact, if anything, I felt I was an inconvenience and wasting time. As there was a change I was referred by my GP. Mr Masanat explained things well, reassured me, and also provided a check up plan for the future that made complete sense. I left the clinic with a completely different feeling following my appointment with Mr Masannat - he listened and he cared.
Mr Masannat and another surgeon cared for me through a mastectomy and reconstruction. It gave me the opportunty to compare the doctors and Mr Masannat was the one that showed empathy, care and was there before and after the surgery, as well as follow-ups. I am glad to have been treated by Mr Masannat and was impressed with his professionalism and bed-side manner through difficult conversations. I liked that he was caring but still matter-of-fact and direct, provided information and options and I felt comfortable (as much as one can) going into the procedure with him.
