Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Today’s appointment was changed to a video visit because of icy driving conditions. Dr. Matuschak is an outgoing, friendly and utterly professional physician. This is my third appointment with him. He is easy to talk to & is a great listener. His questions are probing, & he took notes during our visit. He made it clear that we are partners in caring for my condition and was quite positive in all of his comments, urging me to telephone with any problems or questions which might arise. He made a few valuable suggestions which I will definitely pursue. I would highly recommend Dr. Matuschak to anyone needing a top-notch pulmonologist.

I have been dealing with asthma my entire adult life and most just want to give you something to mask the effects when you are having them. Dr. Matuschak wants to get to the cause and keep things under control. He and his staff go above and beyond to ensure patient satisfaction and patient health. He always makes me feel as if I am his only patient for the day when I am there, I never feel rushed, and always feel his deep concern for my health. He is hands down the BEST doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I have 100% trust in Dr. Matuschak's care, knowledge and integrity. Never have I had a doctor care to the degree that Dr. Matuschak does, and I am truly grateful to have found him.

I like Dr. Matuchak but him and his nurses are impossible to get a hold of. After he made a big change in my medicines I tried to reach his office twice to ask about side effects I might be having or if it could possibly be another heath issue that might need to be addressed no one ever returned my call. I try not to bother my Dr's or their nurses unless it's needed this to me was not acceptable

He takes time to listen to and address your concerns. He is personable and he wants to help you find a solution, and the solution does not always have to include medication. He genuinely cares about his patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Matuschak.
