I had bunion surgery 30 years ago. So when the bunions came back, I knew surgery was the answer. Dr. Mates was recommended by a friend of ours who also worked for Dr. Mates. He is OUTSTANDING! He is an active listener who is thoroughly prepared. As a patient, you feel as if you are in competent hands. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mates!

I went to see Dr. Mates after two years of being told my painful feet could not be fixed. After x-rays, Dr. Mates said he could fix them and he fixed my left foot so well I have no more pain. I will do the other foot in a few months. Thanks to him for a job well done.

Dr Mates put me at ease about my horrible injury the night before surgery. He assured me that he will put my broken femur together and will work with me closely on the road to recovery. He is thorough, extremely caring, answers all my questions at every appointment, spends quality time with patients and as long as needed. I am extremely thankful to have Dr.Mates by my side, I feel I am truly in the most capable hands! Please look no further!!

Dr Mates and his staff have provided excellent care before my surgery and during recovery. Dr. Mates takes time to explain what will happen before, during and after surgery. His attitude and ability have left me with a positive feeling. I would highly recommend Dr. Mates.

First visit was in December and made arrangements for the Cartiva Implant along with a hammer toe fixed. Out of all the 5 appointments made not ONE was on time. Each visit was at least 1 hour to 2 hours. Loved the doctor but not the way their appointments ran.

At the last minute they pushed my father's surgery out to an undisclosed date cause after 3+ months of x-rays and mri's they now state" We are note sure if your ankle is damaged from a fracture or something else" also stated "the foot surgery I'm performing with not fix it, will not help him walk, it will relieve SOME pain" My father walked out of this appointment confused-which this was only a meeting with the Dr, not appointment so he was charged $50 for co-pay, no thanks, money hungry!

I went to several different doctors in pain before DR Mates ordered an MRI for me. Once he did I had surgery with in 3 weeks and i am feeling 100 times better. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone I know.
