I have known Dr. Matthews for many years and he has been treating me for different problems for almost as long as I have known him. The quality of my life would be far worse if not for him. Other doctors have given up on me but Dr. Matthews stayed the course and treated the root of the problem. I can not say enough good about him. If you are in pain, just skip everyone else and go see him.

I received excellent care by Dr. Matthews and staff. Dr Matthews made me feel comfortable by explaining my problem and explaining his plan to help me with my back pain. I would recommend him to any of my family or friends in need of pain management services.

Both of my hips are bad and the doctors told me that I was not a surgical candidate. Dr.MAtthews did a PRP on both of my hips to help give me a better quality of life. It has been two months and I have decreased my pain meds and increased my daily activities.

Dr.Matthews performed a PRP of both of my knees for osteoarthritis and I cannot believe the quality of life that I have now. At first I did not think it was going to work but after two months, it was like someone turned on a light switch. The pain was just gone!
