Dr Matier is an excellent surgeon. Very understanding and explains everything that's going to happen and is always there to answer any questions no matter when day or night. I had major intestinal surgery three weeks ago and I am so happy I picked him he is the best doctor and his staff is excellent also.

Dr. Matier is the best doctor I have had the pleasure to meet. I have been to his office many many times and each visit is like visiting family. I trust both him and his staff. I have had another surgery recently with him and again he ensured I am comfortable and informed. While he is with me, he makes me feel like his only patient..never rushing me. Thank you Dr Matier for changing my quality of life.

I think Dr. Matier is a caring, compassionate doctor. He made me feel at ease throughout my procedure, which could of been very stressful. He made sure my pain was controlled throughout the procedure, and explained carefully how to take care of myself afterwards. He answered any questions I had, and took a lot of time with me. I would highly recommend him.
It was the worst dr I ever met when dealing with help for my elderly father. He was rude, inconsiderate and refused to help find out what is wrong with my 87 year old dad. And... He said it wasn't because he was old but because he has dementia!!!!! He refused to treat or even test him because my 87 year old father has dementia! He even said so. This man should not be practicing medicine. He is no good excuse of a human being.
