What People Say About Dr. Matthew Paden, DPM
He performed 2 very intricate bunion surgeries on me when I was 40 yrs old. I'm now 59 and have been pain free ever since. I didn't know what it was like to not be in pain, having had trouble with bunions since my teens. He was amazingly thorough and precise as I remember him telling me he'd drawn my case over and over again the night before the surgery making sure he knew exactly what he wanted to do. I have been forever grateful and can't imagine he's done anything but get better.

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Matthew Paden, DPM?
Dr. Paden bragged to me about being the "best foot surgeon in the state!" I over trusted him in the beginning even when my gut was telling me he was wrong. He performed surgery on me and left me in terrible pain for almost 2 years before another surgeon found out that he terribly messed up my first surgery by leaving part of what originally went in for to begin with. His post op skills were embarrassing and all I met was resistance to his own denial about how he screwed up to begin with.
