How was your experience with the doctor?As a new patient, I had completed their questionnaire online and only had two documents to sign when I checked in. My wait as only a matter of a few minutes until I was called in to an examination room, 15 minutes before my appointment time. The nurse took vitals and asked a number of questions related to my visit and completed it within 15 minutes and right on my appointment time. Dr. Masters came in within 5 minutes and professionally went through questions and answers culminating in a suggested treatment and then took me to the appointment desk where my next appointment was arranged. My total time in their office was about 55 minutes and wait time during that totaled 10 minutes are less. I am quite satisfied with the Dr. Masters and his office.

How was your experience with the doctor?This doctor is the most highly qualified physician I have ever used. Dr. Masters makes you feel comfortable in allowing you time for all questions and very informative answers in which you can understand. He explains the situation in terms which is our language and not physician talk. This doctor does not rush you through your visit so that you do receive all answers needed before leaving your room. I also must say that this doctor saved my husbands life by knowing his problem that other physicians could not figure out, thank you!

How was your experience with the doctor?I go in every 4-6 weeks for an adjustment on my gastric pacemaker. He does that just fine. But he completely dissmisses all my other concerns. I tell him the same thing every visit. I tell him about my pain increasing, my weakness, my inability to eat, but he never even acknowledges it. I have gotten no help from this doctor at all. I only go for an adjustment on my device.

How was your experience with the doctor?My mother had been suffering from a flare up of gasroparesis since 12/10/16. She had been in and out of emergency rooms and was hospitalized for 3 days. We had seen a primary care physician who wasn't able to help and a gastrotenologist in Corpus Christi who told us there was nothing he could do for her. My mother was in severe pain, spitting up mucus constantly and couldn't eat or drink. It was like her condition was deteriorating . We were finally able to book an appointment with Dr. Masters (who I found on a G-Pact TX motility website). She saw him on 1/19. His staff pulled all her medical records in one day and were able to see her that week. His staff is wonderful and I love his bedside manner. He let us speak and answered all of our questions. He truly listened to all of our concerns which is so rare from previous doctors we have dealt with. He put her on various meds for treatment and I'm happy to report that the next day she was feeling better. I feel like God directed us to him and he helped saved my mother's life. He is brilliant and truly is a blessing to my family and I would highly recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?A very compassionate doctor who is highly specialized and trained in his field of expertise. He is only one of two doctors who performs gastric neurostimulator surgeries in San Antonio. Most patients who are suffering from the same type of disorder have to go to either the Mayo or Cleveland Clinic. I am extremely grateful to have a specialist here in San Antonio who specializes in the treatment of rare gastrointestinal disorders. Dr. Masters has greatly improved the quality of my life.
