I find Dr Matsumoto to not only be a knowledgeable doctor but also very reactive to my issues and very caring. This RA thing is new to me. As such he has been very patient. Appointments have been easy to get and his office staff is always professional.

To have the most successful appointment with him take complete note on your pain levels, when you have pain, what kind of pain and at least two weeks of pain logs. His background is extraordinary. ...Read More
