From the start I was well taken care of by Dr. Matthews and his staff. He made me feel comfortable and I had no worries about the surgery. He took the time to answer all my questions and reviewed the procedure several times. Surgery went flawless. He provided me with support post surgery, answering all of my follow up questions. My recovery journey has been great and I am so thankful for Dr. Matthews expertise and experience. He brings warmth, support, and humor to his patients. He makes the experience personable and you feel the support of him and the staff. I recommend Dr. Matthews and the practice to all patients!!

Quick visit for my 9 year old. Special topical medication to be provided by 'Speciality Pharmacy'...no follow up by practice, or pharmacy. Called up and went to voicemail...left message...no follow up. Called 7 days after initial appointment practice manager contacted pharmacy to 'expedite' topical medication. The topical medication was not covered by insurance $75.00 out-of-pocket with a delivery date later in the week... Called up practice to be told "We are sorry"...but nothing else.

I highly recommend Dr. Matthews for foot issues. He fixed a long standing stress fracture that was negatively impacting my quality of life. His course of treatment was thorough and while it ended up with surgery, I am back to 90% or better and could not be happier as I have returned to sports and exercise without limitations.

I went to 2 Podiatrists before finding Dr Matthews. He has a laser machine that microwaves the planters wart and it just took 2 treatments and the large and small one are both gone. It would've been years of visits every 2 weeks with the other 2 and they never would've gone away. Acid is not enough and will cost more over time then getting after it. He is so pleasant and positive, an amazing doctor. Do yourself a favor and book with him!! I am so happy

Dr. Matthews went above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable throughout the entire procedure. It was quick and painless besides a couple of little pinches for the anesthesia. I've been ignoring this nail for years. Wish I would have done it sooner!
