We can not say enough good things about Dr. Matlin! He was the only Dr. willing to take on our case - infected amputation. He truly save us! Dr. Matlin took on a very tough case and recovery. He did it with confidence, professionalism and honesty. He never sugar coated anything and gave us the confidence we need into order to heal. Truly, Dr. Matlin gave us our life back and we can not thank him enough!

If you have had problems with this Dr I highly recommend that you report him to the Medical Board. It is a long process but it is well worth it.

I was referred to Dr. Matlin for a malignant melanoma. I was able to make first appointment within 1 week of diagnosis. Surgery was scheduled for the following week. He does not waste time. He was clear and thorough in his explanation and options available. I knew just what to expect for procedures and likely outcome. Surgery went smoothly. Great support staff. After biopsy, one of the staff checked for results when they did not come on time. She called me Friday eve. at 5:45 on her personal time to give me the results - so I wouldn't have to wait through the weekend! Followup appointment was same quality as first. Great staff, great bedside manner.

After finding issues with my aorta which had neck, chest, and stomach. I was referred to Dr. Matlin for repairing my subclavian blockage. Years of being told that everything was fine and kept going to the cardiologist follow ups telling them that I was having heart pain, neck pain, dizziness, shortness of breath you name it. And the ultrasounds, stress test blah, blah, blah. It was the ER team who found sever blockage though out my aorta. Dr. Matlin literally saved my life!!!!! Although, there is still issues which need to be addressed I will not allow my cardiologist and his staff care for me. I have been through ..... and back with their deceptiveness, unprofessionalism, and unethical unprofessionalism. Dr. Matlin is one of the few surgeons whom does what it takes to take care of ALL that is in need of his talent. His staff, his surgical team go above and beyond the call of duty to provide the best medical care possible.

I am excited to write this review for Dr. Matlin and his amazing staff. When I was deciding if I would have Dr. Matin perform my recent survey – it was the reviews I read that helped me to decide that he was the perfect surgeon for me. I did not know Dr. Matlin, his reputation, or anything about his office. I knew he operated out of Abrazo Central and I did not have positive feelings about this hospital. Now, almost 1 month post-op – I feel there are not enough stars to rate Dr. Matlin, his staff, and Abrazo Central. I work in the medical field and am engaged in my care so I know how to research providers. I had a melanoma and the pathology report indicated it was the most aggressive type. Right from the start I was impressed! Maria answers the phone – you actually speak to a live person! She is wonderful and can competently direct you to whatever is needed. When I went into the office, Marissa called me into the exam room and explained she is Dr. Matlin’s assistant and she also assi

I saw Dr Matlin concerned I had a hernia. After my exam Dr Matlin confirmed it was just an abdominal strain. He was very thorough and just a really cool doctor!

I had a carotid artery that was 98% blocked. Dr Matlin performed my surgery and removed a kidney tumor. He is the best surgeon around hands down!

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.
