    Dr. Matkovic has been my primary doctor for a year or so. I really like her and when I have an urgent problem....I am able to get in to see her quickly with no problem. I am changing insurance the first of the year and she will no longer be my doctor. I told her this and she was very understanding. She also told me to come see her right before I change and she will send my records to the new doctor. I'm going to miss Dr. Matkovic.

    Dr. Matkovic is very attentive and extremely thorough. I'm not sure how she manages to keep the wait down, as the practice is very busy. The longest I have waited to go back was maybe 10 minutes. She listens and offers here professional opinion on best treatments but seems very willing to consider your thoughts on treatment plans. I highly recommend her to all of my friends and family.

    Dr. Matkovic is thorough, honest, knowledgeable, and very caring. She's not dismissive like some other doctors. She takes the time to listen. Her bedside manners are top notch. Dr.Betsy is one of the best doctors I have encountered.

    Dr. Matkovic was an attending physician when I went into urgent care at Kaiser. I was so impressed with her that I was hoping to make her my primary care doctor, unfortunately I was unable to. A few years later when my insurance changed I looked for a doctor and was pleased to find Dr. Matkovic accepted my insurance. She is thorough, listens and isn't all about pumping drugs into you. She is mindful of what insurance will cover and is clear about options. Seriously one of the best I've seen
