What People Say About Dr. Charles Matlin, MD

I am not happy with this office. My mom is suppose to have colon surgery tomorrow morning, and they are not sending over the medication they were supposed to send over to her pharmacy. They refuse to talk to me even though she gave them permission to talk to me. The doctor wants to remove her whole intestine when she has a 10 inch obstruction. To top it off her insurance called her to confirm that she was having a heart surgery. I don't feel like my mom is in safe hands.

If it was possible to give 6 stars I would. As close to perfection on all aspects of my hernia repair surgery.... from the initial office visit with the staff and finishing with an incredibly virtually pain free recovery immediately following the procedure. Never took more than 400mg of ibuprofin for pain!

The ladies in the office are so kind and very helpful. I had a situation that was not being resolved thru my efforts so LuAnn took over and became my advocate. She resolved the issue with an amazing outcome. Thank you to all the staff at Dr .Matlins office.

Wed.January 13, 2016 @ 4:15pm appt.time: Dr.Matlin seemed to be in rush. I felt a negative vibe and would not want him to operate on me nor would I recommend his services with the attitude and character he possesses. I felt like I was a burden to him being in his office. However his staff were very polite. I believe he may have a bad case of job burn out, I have ordered a Rx.Of retirement.
