What makes Dr. Massey different?  He listen to his patients:



  •  "Dr. Massey really wants to hear your whole story...not just look at lab results and MRIs...he listens...concerned about you."

  • "He wants to heal...not just prescribe drugs...takes his time."

  • "He listens...first 30 minutes, he did not say a word...I did all of the talking...and he was looking at me, not typing into a computer."

  • He said to me..."it's not in your head or because of your age or being female." He did not dismiss me - he listened and found a solution."

  • "A 30 minute office visit...I'm lucky if I even see my doctor - they all use physician assistants and nurses. 30 minutes with Dr. Massey - every time!"

  • "He teaches...he drew the biochemical diagrams showing me where the problem was and had an answer. My other doctors don't even talk with me...they lecture and leave."

  • "Every time I see my physician, a new prescription...not with Dr. Massey."

  • "Dr. Massey is a regular doctor, expert in alternative medicine and an energy healer...met a lot of physicians - regular and alternative. No one does what Dr. Massey's does."

  • “He asked me about everything...most complete first visit ever...and he showed me how it all fits together.”

  • “…seven physicians and no result. Saw Dr. Massey and he put it all together. My condition does not even have a specific diagnosis. He really, really listens.”

  • “I am not sure how to describe what Dr. Massey does...except that he heals. This is what medicine is suppose to be.”

  • “Way ahead of the curve! Thank you.”

Dr. Massey practices medicine the way it should be. He is the past director of Complementary and Alternative Medicine for the Alexian Brothers Hospital Network.

Dr. Massey received his MD from Rush University and his PhD in immunology from Northwestern University Graduate School of Medicine. He also has advanced medical training as a graduate fellow in the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona.

In addition to being a physician, Dr. Massey has a doctorate degree in metaphysical studies (MhD), is an ordained minister and is a long time energy medicine practitioner. He has been energetically sensitive since early childhood.

Dr. Massey is board certified in Integrative Medicine by the American Board of Physician Specialties and nationally recognized as a leader in integrative medicine and has been utilizing the best of traditional and non-traditional medicine (integrative) for over 20 years.
