Ratings for Dr. Larry L. Mattingly
Dr Mattingly is a older and wiser man who knows what he is talking about. He cares about his patients and does what ever he can do to get them better,i would know because im one of them.As for the staff i have NEVER had a problem with them, they're sweet and very caring and when something needs to be done for me they are sure to do it. if you looking for a straight forward smart and caring Dr then i would say Dr Mattingly is you best bet!!
Office staff was nice, pleasent and helpful. The physician himself did not appear to listen to what was said. On the first visit he told me I needed to go on a diet. I agreed and told him I had started Jenny Craig 2 months before and had lost a total of 12 pounds. I explained I was having difficulty breathing and frequently, in the humid, hot Fl. summer have trouble breathing outside. He said he wanted me to return for a treadmill test. I thought this would be related to my breathing. Wrong, it was exactly the same test I had about 2 months before. Now Medicare is going to be billed for the same test twice. He never explained he was going to watch my heart rate not my breathing. He told me again all my breathing problems were related to my weight and I needed to diet. Humm I lost 2 pounds in the week between visits. Then he told me the only exercise I needed was to walk if I didn't start walking again I would never be able to breath. I can't breath in the heat!
Please consider choosing another doctor's office before attempting this one. The office staff - including the nurse - is terribly rude, and it feels as if you, the patient, are inconveniencing them as they have better things to do with their working time. I believe the underlying cause is because they don't get along with each other and don't like working at the office to begin with. I received no "hello, how are you today" or "how may we help you" -- you're ushered into the exam room, the nurse flippantly tosses her tools onto the counter, and when she's finished, you experience the door slamming behind her. If you desire a doctor's office that doesn't really care about presentation or an overall feeling of patient care, then by all means, take the risk. Otherwise, you've been warned.
Stay away from this man! He is extremely rude and abrupt and has a terrible temper! I saw him twice, and he was the same both times. On my second visit, he blew up at me when I asked him about some of the medications he had prescribed. He does NOT like to be questioned about anything. Because the examining room doors were open, I also heard what he was saying to another patient, and it was NOT GOOD. I cried when I left his office for the second and last time, because he had been so mean. DO NOT GO THERE if you value your emotional (and physical) health. Strangely, his staff were all very nice ladies. Don't know how they put up such a character. He is an older man with a facial tic. Maybe he is unwell himself and just takes it out on others. Who knows. I will never go back.
