      Dr Matos has been my physician since 2005 and I literally owe my life to this man. He is one of the few physicians who has experience treating mast cell disorders. I moved away and still travel 800 miles every 6 months to see him because there is no substitute. He genuinely cares and worries about his patients. He is kind and thorough, his knowledge base is vast and he thinks outside the box. He is also very responsive and accessible. I can't imagine trusting my health to anyone else.

      Dr. Matos Helped me discover that food allergies were causing me to itch but also making my migraine headaches worse.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
