My primary care doctor informed me that I had cancer so I was getting a 2nd opinion from Dr. Mathews. She immediately put me at ease. She was reassuring, kind, intelligent and explained what needed to be done. She listened to me and considered my point of view. I had complete confidence in her ability and she alleviated my anxiety. I had to have a hysterectomy but I was cancer free! I was up and about in a matter of days. I would never consider seeing another doctor, she's the BEST !

Dr. Matthews is very personable and professional in all aspects. I truly recommend her to anyone. She treats my Mother with utmost care and respect. She keeps me informed as well as I am my mother's HCP and due to language barrier with my Mom, she takes that into consideration when addressing my Mother.

After having a horrible experience with my local gynecologist who told me I had cancer I went to Dr Mathews for treatment. What a wonderful compassionate and caring Doctor. She took such great care of me during the scariest time of my life. She has earned my eternal gratitude and admiration. Women & Infants is lucky to have such a talented and caring Doctor on their staff.
