Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Plante has treated my son and I over many years and numerous sports injuries. He is great with kids (and adults) and is consistently on top of the latest procedures and technologies. What makes Dr. Matt stand out from other doctors is that he is genuinely a nice person with integrity. Something you don’t run into often these days and it’s always nice to see. Highly recommend!

Seems like this doctor is in it for the money. Get second opinion elsewhere.

Poor outcome from my surgery, condescending staff and my visits were always rushed by this doctor, looking back now I understand why my surgery ended so badly. My new surgeon from Boston later explained why things went so wrong.

I have been Dr. Plante's patient since 2011 and had 3 ACL surgeries with him. I have always been treated with top notch care. He has always taken the time with me to explain my surgery and recovery in detail. I have also referred friends and family to Dr. Plante. Would highly recommend him.

I went to see the Dr. Plante for a fractured clavicle. I had to wait almost an hour in the office until I was given an exam room. In total he spent about 5 minutes in the room with me. 5 weeks later I receive a bill in the mail charging $226.00 for the office visit and an ADDITIONAL $725.00 for “treatment” of a clavicular fracture. This was $725.00 for 5 minutes of the Dr.’s time where he basically did nothing to “treat” me. I am extremely disappointed that they think this was necessary.

Dr. Plante and the staff at Foundry Ortho were fantastic to deal with. Their attention to detail and the in depth explanations of my injury made me feel very comfortable with the steps to recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Plante and his staff.
