Meet Dr. Jerimiah Mason, founder of Surgical Specialists of Carolina in Asheville.
As a board-certified general surgeon, Dr. Jerimiah Mason has experience performing a wide range of surgical procedures. The versatility required of a general surgeon aligns with Dr. Mason’s adaptable personality, and he is able to skillfully handle the many unique situations that define his medical specialty. He applies this adaptability to his patients as well — no matter whom he’s treating, Dr. Mason’s ability to foster feelings of comfort perfectly complements his surgical skill.
Dr. Mason, in his own words…
“Making sure my patients feel confident and comfortable, both with me personally and the procedure I’m going to be performing, is one of the most important goals of my practice. I sincerely empathize with each patient and what they’re going through. By putting myself in my patient’s shoes, I gain an important perspective that improves my patient’s overall experience. It builds trust. And trust underlies everything we do here at Surgical Specialists of Carolina.
“I truly enjoy my work. Every operation is different because every patient is different, so I constantly feel like I’m exposed to new challenges. The very definition of general surgery means that I must diagnose and manage a wide range of diseases throughout the body, and that comprehensive characteristic is what originally drew me to the practice.
“Family is quite important to me. My wife is also a physician, and we have a two-year-old son. I promise my patients that they, too, are part of my family, and they will always receive the same level of dedication and honesty that I give to my wife and son.”
