    I went to see Dr Matusz for a 2nd opinion on having surgery for 2 lumbar fractures. Dr Matusz demonstrated not only great diagnostic skills but a true caring for the individual. Under his care and guidance, I am now leading a very active life. I have a lot to be thankful for including the intro to Dr Matusz!

    I would recommend Dr. Matusz to anyone with a back problem he was the finest professional you will find in the business today. I have already sent at least 3 other friends with the same issue as I had and they were all extremely pleased with the outcome. Hands of gold.
