Dr Mathew is very patient. Takes a lot of time to explain procedures. Does not make you feel like you are rushing him. He is very willing to answer questions that you have. I have recommended him to a couple friends.

Every time I come into the office I have to sit for more than an hour. My child has school and I make it a priority to be here on time so I could leave on time. But first we sit outside forever and finally when we get in we just sit and sit and wait! Rediculous!
