Dr. MATTHEW D. Vrees's Ratings
Botched surgery. Poor bedside manner. Terrible with family. Did not fully inform family and was cold and disinterested in helping patient understand and accept the result.

I have been seeing Dr. Vrees for over 5 years. I have a rare case and the worse he has seen. At First bedside manner was great but as time goes on he has changed. He has been rude on some visits and unsympathetic because he can't fix my problem. He rarely will call you to answer any questions. He will be all interested in helping then I don't hear from him and then I have to make another appointment just to get a answer answered. The staff can be mean, and waiting time on the phone to talk to them can be over 20 minutes. Overall I do think Dr. Vrees is very smart and when things are going right he will be very friendly. He does need to warn the patient who just has been operated on that he will be going on vacation. Many times I had surgery and the next day I expected to see him but left on vacation so I had a different doctor taking care of me. I honestly would not have chosen a different surgeon because I do feel that he is one of the best but some things should be changed

Dr. Vrees is an excellent surgeon. He was my surgeon in 2010 when I found out that I have colon cancer. Both Dr. Vrees and the staff at Miriam Hospital took very good care of me.

Nice doctor. Office staff is incompetent and appointment setting/communication is the worse I have ever come across. When director of practice was contacted-there was no response to my major concerns.Even my primary doctor who recommended the group got no response. Changed doctors.
