Ratings for Dr. Roy Mathews


Dr. Mathews performed a bunionectomy on my left foot nine weeks ago. From the first consultation to the most recent follow-up appointment he has been professional, efficient, willing to explain in detail the procedure, the risks, the recovery, etc. Some people were skeptical about my having a podiatrist perform my bunionectomy (rather than an orthopedic surgeon), but Dr. Mathews has done hundreds of surgeries, and I am very happy with the result. He is also very easy to communicate with via email--I sent him several emails over 8 weeks and he always responded within 24 hours.
