My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Matthews for over 20 years. He is efficient yet very caring and thorough. Also he is attentive, asking questions for clarification before making a diagnosis. We both feel that he is very knowledgeable yet takes the time to explain any test results and care options in terms that are easily understood. He has always been cheerful and confident. For a period of 3 years, while he was working in another state, we tried at least five different doctors and felt like we were herded in and out. Both of us are so very thankful that Dr. Matthews has returned to this area and we would recommend him to anyone without a moment's hesitation. He is the epitome of a Family Doctor.

You can tell he keeps up with changes he is very knowledgeable and skilled. He is the best we recommend him to anyone looking for a new Family Doctor.
Dr. Matthews is one of the most kindest, considerate and sincere doctor that I have had the pleasure of knowing. He is very thorough and knowledgeable with all of his patient's ailments and concerns. I have been acquainted with Dr. Matthews for over twenty years. He cared for both my mother and my mother-in-law, both of which lived to the age of 93. Both had very serious illnesses and many times Dr. Matthews was called by ER for guidance and advice regarding their treatment. He cared for both of them as if they were his mother. I am also a patient of his and feel very secure in his advice and treatment. He cares and speaks in layman's terms, and explains all tests so that one understands and is very kind about answering questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Matthews to anyone looking for a very professional, caring doctor. He is the modern day DR. Welby and Ben Casey rolled into one.
Dr. Matthews has been my doctor for the last 2 years. His staff are always very personal, caring, compassionate and professional. Dr. Matthews always comes in with a smile on his face, thanks you for coming to see him and then asks what he can do for you. He sits patiently and listens closely to every word you say.He may ask you questions, and then will give you his opinion, diagnosis and recommended treatment. He is never in a hurry and always asks if there is anything else he can do for you before leaving. Dr. Matthews is relentless when it comes to diagnosing a health issue, finding the cause and following through with the correct treatment. I cannot imagine what my life and health would be like today if it had not been for Dr. Matthews and his staff. Dr. Matthews not only cares about your physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing but also about you as a person. He is one in a million and will always care for you and treat you just like, as his practice says,"Family"
