Dr. Masterson also has a Bachelor of Science degree in zoology from Idaho State University, Pocatello, Idaho, and an Associate of Arts and Sciences in Pre-Medicine from Ricks College, Rexburg, Idaho.
What sets Dr. Masterson apart from others in his field is his wide range of practice experience from working in multiple locations and different environments throughout his career. His focus is on a holistic approach to mental health wellness, taking into account medical, social, environmental and mental health issues. His patients describe him as caring, compassionate, easy to engage and knowledgeable.
He loves the outdoors, and in his spare time Dr. Masterson enjoys a wide variety of outdoor activities.
