What People Say About Dr. James Dematteis, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. DeMatteis has been my Neurologist, since, I was diagnosed w/ a rare genetic mutation (CADASIL) causing small vessel destruction, resulting in uncontrollable seizures. I wasn't aware, I was ill, until collapsing into seizures & respiratory arrest, in my First Grade classroom. I lost my job, home, SUV, license, & finances. I wouldn't have made it through the 1st yr. w/o him & Dr. Glass. Dr. DeMatteis cares about the whole person-physically & emotionally. Thank you Dr. D for your kindness!

I was very disappointed with my visit to Dr. Dematteis. I saw him for severe foot spasms lasting several hours at a time, ,leg cramps, numbness in my feet, etc...following surgery for severe spinal stenosis. He made light of my situation and told me " everyone gets charley horses". His only advice was to lose weight! ( I am about 10 lbs overweight). I was very disappointed that I wasted my time seeing this physician.
