Patient Comments (2)

Torrance, CA |
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.
