Giving just 5 stars or a 10/10 as a review still falls so short in rating how amazing this man is. Dr Matusz is like an angel walking the earth. My family and I are so thankful and appreciative for everything he's done for me. It goes beyond just his ability as a surgeon, in which he is the best at what he does. Its also his heart, his caring nature, the time and attention he gives you; he's the total package.

Best doctor ever If you think and you need a Back surgery This is your doctor No doubt this is your doctor it is very rera To see a doctoring with so much passion for what he's doing like doctor Matusz Harder work man who cares about he's patients I Highly recomend him

I had a C3-C6 laminectomy and only 18 days after surgery I feel remarkably better with all my symptoms gone. A true professional and fantastic surgeon. He gave me all the time I needed with him to discuss options and answer questions. My wife and I have had plenty of surgery and I can say he is the best we have ever met. Dr. Matusz was our 2nd opinion. the first surgeon recommended aggressive invasive surgery to profoundly effect my life. Dr. Matusz solution was spot on and a big success.

He is a damn good doctor he's kind caring a nurturing. He takes his time to talk to you. He also did my spinal cord surgery and so far it has alleviated most of the nerve pain in my back. Thank you Dr. Mateusz.

I had a back surgery that was Pro Bono with full recovery, after 5 years the pain came back worse affecting my gluteus thighs and legs I called you many times almost begging for you at least to come to the phone but the only answer was from one of your receptionists saying: "I can give you a list of doctors that may take your insurance" I Don't know what went wrong and I'm not interested now to know, 1 year ago I just wanted you to say anything to aliviate my fear about not been able to walk.

He is a phenomenal doctor, surgeon and person. Highly technically competent, compassionate and ethical. I am ever grateful to him I am doctor.
Diagnosed and treated complex spinal injury when brushed off by other doctors.
Dr Matusz has poor bedside manner and is impossible to reach in case of emergency
in New York, NY |
I went to see Dr Matusz for a 2nd opinion on having surgery for 2 lumbar fractures. Dr Matusz demonstrated not only great diagnostic skills but a true caring for the individual. Under his care and guidance, I am now leading a very active life. I have a lot to be thankful for including the intro to Dr Matusz!
in White Plains, NY |
I would recommend Dr. Matusz to anyone with a back problem he was the finest professional you will find in the business today. I have already sent at least 3 other friends with the same issue as I had and they were all extremely pleased with the outcome. Hands of gold.
