Dr Matthews performed a surgical bunion 'adjustment" over two years ago on my less deformed foot. The surgery went well and after all this time the foot continues to look normal & I have zero pain. I recently saw him for a problem with a toe. He spent time explaining the condition & then treated it extensively in the office & provided instructions for after care as well as the minor surgery I will have in the new year. I am quite satisfied.

I fully recommend Dr Mathews for podiatry services. I have a long history of foot issues stemming from sports injuries and with bunion pain. Previous care with other health care professionals focused on managing the pain versus addressing the underlying issues. I chose Dr Mathews based on web reviews and this was validated on my first visit. Office is clean, bright and spacious. Staff helpful and friendly. Change of office locations went seamlessly. Dr M fully understood the history and impact of my injuries, and the struggles I have had even with previous care. Care areas - ankle assessment, orthotics and bunion treatment. Having used orthotics for decades via chiropractors, I can confidently state that the orthotics obtained through his office are the best ones I have ever had. They look different and feel truly customized for my feet; the positive impact was immediate. The other part of this treatment was his recommendation to get proper evaluation of the ankle issues that have plagued me for decades. His evaluation, supported with x-ray and MRI, resulted in a referral to an ortho surgeon. He was very clear on what I needed, what he can provide within his scope of practice and where I can get the best care. I was really pleased/relieved as no previous health professionals had recommended that level of care . Bunion evaluation with Dr M resulted in options that included surgery. I opted for surgery after discussion with him and I have no regrets. I am so pleased to see the obvious impact of the surgery with my toe alignment; post-op care has been responsive and compassionate. I am a health care professional. Please make informed decisions with finding health care providers, including not just accepting web reviews at face value. I have no regrets with accepting care from Dr Mathews, and I have recommended his services to others.

I do not recommend him at all! He's in the business to make money as he hurriedly gets through your appt as fast as possible. If you have ?s that go over the allotted time, he'll be 1/2way out the door before you can ask/he could answer. More than once I sat in the wait rm to process the info he gave, jot my questions down & try to get a word in before I left. He 'sold$$$' me on getting a bunionectomy done as he'd "done over a thousand before", the next time it was "thousands"... As another pt noticed, he is as arrogant as his pants are tight. If anything goes wrong, as it did horribly for me, it's a slippery slope. As another pt said, it took 2 appts to 'dig' the hardware out with Dr. Q, causing permanent AVN!, then the bone collapsed, then he actually said it was ok to still walk on it!! to bump me off several weeks. Coincidentally he was opening his office on 42nd ave$$$. A toe he 'fixed'$$ got noticeably twisted but looked "fine", "guess I could look into it later". He continually bumped me while my condition worsened/extremely painful! It became WCB incident - incredibly stressful! Then had to chase down my records btwn 3 different offices he works in $$$ & he couldn't even put it together - incredibly stressful, took forever and was very detrimental to my case! It was costing his time$$$ & basically wrote me off/left me with major painful permanent issues. Years of stress & pain!

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!
