We had the worst experience we have ever had with a doctor. Dr. Matthews saw my son as a new patient. The initial examination showed my son to be doing well. His lab work was performed and all the numbers were good. Dr. Matthews wrote a prescription for ONE month for the medicine Humira. When my son needed the next month's medicine,Dr. Matthews REFUSED to give him a prescription for one more month until he could arrange travel to be seen. DR. MATTHEWS ALSO REFUSED TO TALK TO US OR WORK WITH US.

This doctor is too busy for you!! I travelled 250 miles to see him to be told I didn't have an appt., nor could he fit me in because he was booked. There was no one in the office @ 6:45am. The receptionist could care less that I travelled so far, rearranged schedules, etc. This is NOT a good impression to leave with a new patient! Dr. Matthews didn't come out to apologize for the inconvenience How can I trust this person with my health when he can't even take a minute out of his busy schedule?

He was thorough, professional, and kind. He made me feel hopeful about my future, despite my current health issues. I would absolutely recommend him

Reading the bad reviews makes me sad. I have been going to this office for a couple years now, I have RA and I'm 23. While I have had a few long waits, I expect that from a doctor's office that cares about their patients. I would rather be in and out a little late than have the patient before me rushed and feel uncared for. I have never had an issue with scheduling. I absolutely LOVE Nancy, Dr. Matthews is kind, and the staff are absolutely fantastic, they are always nice and try to be quick! :)

I like Dr Mathews himself, but I always get shunted off to one of his nurses and getting appointments is a big pain. They are frequently scheduled over a month out and if you are having a flareup and need meds, etc., you're just out of luck because they will make NO effort to accommodate you. The two nurse practitioners that are married to each other handle medications, dosage, etc. completely differently from one another. One will do one thing, the other will do something different.

Dr. Matthews is a incredible and knowledge . My first visit he made me feel like finally a Dr. that wants to find out the cause of my bone and joint pain that I went to my share of Dr. previous in the past ten years of symptoms. A month later finally a diagnosis ans started a treatment regimen that eventually changed my entire lifestyle. 3 years prior I gave up hope of doing the things I use to do. Now I am participating in activities i gave up on. Yes I finally found hope in Rheumatoid atthr

I just had my first appointment with Dr. Matthews. He was very kind, explained things well, he didn't rush, he asked questions and took the time to hear what I had to say. I'm grateful that he has taken me as a new patient.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
I have had only 1 appointment with Dr. Mathews, but that first appointment was phenomenal! He explained my tests results and everything very thoroughly and I did not feel rushed. He was sincere and made me feel at ease, even saying he would treat me like if I were his own daughter. I did have to wait about 5 months to get in, but he is the only RA dr accepting new patients that accepts Select Health.

Most arrogant Doctor I've worked with and i'm reminded of the term 'Schadenfreude' when I think of him.. Went with my daughter and he would not tolerate anyone speaking but himself.
