Melissa Mason, PA


Melissa Mason, PA, is a UW Health physician assistant in neurology.  

Melissa specializes in diagnosing and treating neuromuscular (nerve and muscle) diseases. Some conditions she treats include myopathy (muscle disease), neuropathy (damaged or malfunctioning nerves) and myasthenia gravis (an autoimmune condition that causes certain muscles to feel weak). She also sees patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord and causes loss of muscle control.

Melissa has a special interest in working with patients who have spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), which is an inherited disease that weakens muscles. She also performs skin punch biopsies (a specific technique for removing cells) to look for nerve damage that causes numbness or pain in feet and hands.

Melissa listens closely to her patients and partners with them to deliver personalized care that best suits their unique needs and goals. She values the opportunity to help improve a patient’s  neuromuscular condition as well as their quality of life.  

Outside of work, Melissa enjoys spending time with her family (including her dogs), skiing, traveling and coaching soccer.

I want every patient to feel heard and empowered to advocate for themselves.
