    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.
