Three months after bunion and hammertoe surgery by Dr. Matthews, I did my first TRX RIP training last week and my foot was the last thing to hurt afterward – so GOOD JOB!

Recently I brought my wife to Dr. Mathews because he did my bunion surgery. My surgery was very professionally done and the nine years since I have had no problems. I have referred many friends to Dr. Mathews without hesitation.

Dr. Matthews is a marvellous surgeon who produces astonishing results! In April 2016, I had the Major bunion surgery. Just 6 months later, I was able to resume running major marathons. Within 13 months post surgery, I had completed the following 4 full and 1 half marathons: Oct, 2016: Chicago Marathon Vancouver Rock N Roll Half Marathon Nov, 2016: New York City Marathon April 2017: Boston Marathon May 2017: Vancouver BMO Marathon (Boston Qualified!) Besides being an excellent surgeon, Dr. Matthews is very personable and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Matthews!

For a few years I was here on ratemd trying to find the best doctor for my bunion surgery. (Background: 6 years ago I had the other foot done with an orthopaedic surgeon that produced a poor result, so it was a difficult decision and journey towards this second surgery.) It has been 4 months since Dr. Mathews did my bunion surgery, and I'm so happy to be writing this positive review! My foot issue has been corrected and my healing has been going very well. He sincerely cares if you are a good candidate for surgery, how the healing time and your life connect, and the overall outcome - and this is clearly visible through the follow up appointments I've had. I can't express this enough. Dr. Mathews is an absolute professional, kind, personable, and is very passionate about his career/work. I only wish he did my first surgery, and his receptionist said she hears that a lot! (She is absolutely lovely as well.) I feel so incredibly lucky to have had my surgery performed by him and Dr. Quintoro.

Marianne. S in the last week- A friend referred me, as i had/have been suffering with a dreadful case of plantar fasciitis for some time. It was determined that i needed orthotics and a deposit was promptly made, to enable the lab he uses, to begin production of my orthotics. Being in a temporarily difficult financial situation, i sought the aid of an association to help me with the balance owing. I told him and his staff, that this organization required an official invoice, to approve the expense. I was assured that an invoice would be forwarded. There was an error in the email address and my rep, called the office (after i notified her of the error) , leaving all her information on their voicemail, along with a request to be called back. They never did. She called again many days later and spoke directly with the secretary at the Kerrisdale office. She presented herself, explained the situation and requirements and was assured that an email would be promptly sent. It never was. I called his office and left a message, asking that they please follow up, as the delays would inevitably prove detrimental to me, given that i never sit for the work that i do. Days later, ie this morning, a message was left by the secretary from their New West office. She stated that if i needed an invoive, they could send one to me, but that their policy was never to forward any to third parties.... Why not say that to me at the time of the original request, i wonder?? I called back and finally spoke to the secretary. She said she had the correct email address to send the invoice to and promised to send it "today before noon". I apprised my rep of this and ask that sje keep me posted... Later this morning, i get a call from my friend. She had received what sounded to have been a scathing, if not slanderous email, about me. Dr. Mathews stated that his staff "no longer wanted to deal with all tje extra work i was asking of them". He added that i was "harassing" them with all the calls and that they wanted no part of it any more. He intimated he had lost money and time with me and no doubt had some other choice words of condemnation, for a widow (me) temporarily down on her luck. Nice!!! Well i spoke with my rep this evening and after diligently checking her inbox, confirmed no email was ever sent (as promised), from the offices of Dr.Mathews. To say that to date, my experience with this doctor and his staff has been unpleasant, would be akin to calling the plague, mildly inconvenient. The ONLY thing myself and my case worker are attempting (and unsuccessfully at that), is for his office to forward a digital copy of an invoice, to an email address! If i had to guess, i would venture to question Dr.Mathew's willingness to uphold an oath, when it stands to benefit those that he or his staff, view as "undesirable" , or in financial difficulty, if even temporarily. No help, no empathy, no respect for my case worker's time and effort and worst of all, for my health. Ps. This pffice does show great respect, however, in addressing information left on their voicemail, especially when it comes to charging a credit card number left on it...

The worst bedside manner ever! Went to him for years and finally gave up based on poor advice and attitude. Last pair of orthodics did not fit me correctly. After being re-assessed and new pair made by Kintec, my ankle and knee problems from the last year disappeared.
