Dr. Mathewson and his staff were all extremely friendly and professional. He spent a great amount of time with my wife and I and answered all my questions in terms I was able to understand. I was able to schedule a surgery in only 2 days due to my unavailability. I would definitely recommend this doctor and staff to anyone!

Great initial visit. Was able to schedule same day appointment. Receptionist greeting me when I arrived, and showed me the forms I needed to fill out. Was then met by Heather the technician, who took my health information, and took the necessary x-rays. Dr. Mathewson has an excellent manor, explaining exactly what part was broken, and outlined my options. Heather then applied my cast, and Dr. Mathewson checked my cast and told me when to come back to check on healing progress. Excellent!!!

This is the most awesome Dr. I have ever worked with. I went to Dr Mathewson for a 2nd opinion on an injury I sustained to my predominate hand. Wow, is all I could say. He took the time to explain the MRI results in English, showed me an x-ray of my good hand and the injured one so I could see the extent of the damage and made sure I was comfortable with the surigical approach we chose. I flew from TX to GA for post op check up because because i didn't want anyone else touching my hand.

I am a minimally invasive hand wrist and elbow surgeon and I am honored that I have been able to take care of my patients in San Antonio for the last six years of my practice. I have now moved to the Atlanta metro area and I look forward to offering my patients a holistic approach to hand wrist and elbow conditions. If conservative treatment is exhausted I will be able to offer them an alternative to invasive surgery with minimal downtime faster recoveries and potentially no sutures.
