Patient Comments (4)

We saw Dr. Matkovich after a very suspicious eye exam with another MD (e.g., MD dilated our eyes and THEN did the vision test) and she saved my vision. Turns out I had narrow angle glaucoma and could have gone blind because the original opthalmologist was too lazy to perform a simple procedure...more

She is very RUDE and unprofessional. Can't believe she is listed as Pediatric Ophthalmologist. She doesn't know how to talk to kids. She has been criticizing me for explaining things to my daughter calling it West LA parenting. Would never go back to her.

Do not ever go to her. She was rude, yelled at me for asking questions and made by daughter cry. She's very unprofessional and I hope she gets reprimanded by the board! If I can give her no stars, I will!

Dr Matkovitch explained my eye problems to me thoroughly, was patient and spent a good long time with me to ensure that I understood the treatment offered.
