Dr. Mason was awesome. [My child] was VERY nervous to go to his appointment and she immediately got him to calm down and feel at ease. She even got a blood pressure on him (which his primary care was unable to do). She explained things beautifully and gave us a plan for the next steps in his care. Would highly recommend her to anyone!

Dr Mason is very patient oriented. She listens to my son and his needs. As a teenager I think that's important. She is a great physician!
