Mathern fused L3-L5 supposedly to relieve back & right foot pain caused by accidents.After 12 yrs. of followup for low-dose pain med he drops me with no referral to pain management &,as of 7/13/17,has not sent operation & followup records to doctor I hope works with me better than his phony 12 yr. compassionate manner turn ugly.Also lied about his license,which I can prove,being in jeopardy!

During my consult with Dr. Mathern he was cold, rude and disconnected. Would never allow him to perform surgery on me.
