in Camilla, GA |
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.
Albany, GA |
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.
Albany, GA |
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!
Albany, GA |
Dr. Matthews explains things very well. He took the time to explain everything to me.
