Dr. Matthew Backens failed to find two kidneys stones I had. I went to him several times in the time frame of two months complaining of abdominal pains and he did several labs (over a period of those two months), there was blood in my urine and he was mystified of why. Yet he did not do the appropriate testing to find out what was causing this pain I was having. His PA didn't' impress me either and missed it too, ordering a pelvic ultrasound which showed nothing wrong, while I still was having horrible pain. I called his office in severe pain and no one did anything, no callback or anything. The pain was so bad we had to go to the emergency room, we even called his office to inform him we were headed to emergency room and still NO calls back ever! He NEVER checked on me later or anything! I would NOT recommend him as a family doctor. He should have caught this 2 months ago when he saw blood in my urine and ordered more testing until the issue was found. He DID NOT do this.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bakens for several years. He is patient kind and always takes as much time as needed to answer any questions or concerns. He even calls you to go over tests results personally. Would highly recommend him .

This man is probably the best primary care doctor I have ever had and I’m 62. He is very patient. I never feel rushed. He pays attention to what I say and offers good observations. I really like him as person too! I had a great visit with him this week and feel that I am in good hands. I moved here from Connecticut and I really liked my doctor there. I went through 2 other docs in Virginia Beach before I found Dr. Backens and I couldn’t be happier.

This was my annual visit. Dr. Backens remembers family celebrations and listens intently. He is a doctor that helps you to understand what you are being treated for and all of your options. I always leave his office upbeat and ready to implement any shared information. He is a plethora of useful information and connected with so many valuable Garth respires. I would recommend Dr. Backens to any person who is in need of a health care professional!
