Dr. Marcha is very thorough, caring, everything I have needed in a renal professional. Her office is beautifully decorated, comfortable and has great convenient parking.

Dr. Matcha has been my nephyrologist for the last several years. When I first saw Dr. Matcha I was on lithium bicarbonate for bi-polar disorder. I had been taking lithium for over 40 years to control the disorder but it was having a negative effect on my kidneys. Dr. Matcha recommended finding a substitute. After some trial and error, I am now on a combination of oxcarbazine and escitalopram oxalite with very good results. I have progressed from CKD4 to CKD3. I highly recommend Dr. Matcha.

Nice lady but not impressed with her as a doctor. She is not proactive, she doesn't explain things well, she avoids giving unpleasant information, she doesn't advocate effectively for her patient with other doctors or with the dialysis center. She didn't seem to remember her patient's situation from visit to visit and she only met with patient either in the hospital or in the dialysis center. We wasted 6 months with her (assigned to her at the hospital due to emergency). Not recommended.

Very happy with the excellent care I received from Dr Matcha .

Dr. Matcha clearly keeps a watchful eye on her patience. Her timeliness along with conferring doctors helped keep my husband from going from very bad deterioration to possible death. She is a good doctor in that she concerned about her patients comfort and their health status.

My husband died of cardiac arrest following dialysis. Dr Matcha was his doctor. She could have modified his dialysis schedule or the type of dialysis he was undergoing, and that might have saved his life. She is negligent and uncaring.
Dr. Matcha was my mom's doctor for approx. 3 years. When we left in May, she was given about 6 months to live because my mom refused dialysis, sitting in a clinic 3 days a week, 4 -6 hours each time. Dr. Matcha did not informed my mom or us of other options that were available, such as peritoneal dialysis. Since moving her to our city, she has started PD and is doing fantastic. We were disappointed in the communication and options that were NOT share with us.

Dr. Matcha is well-rounded and personable. I felt comfortable from my very first visit with her. She cares about her patients' health and prescribed me hypertension medicine that has less side effects than the one I took before seeing her, while also proving to be more effective. I highly recommend Dr. Matcha!

I have been going to Dr Matcha for years. A great Dr . Extremely, good, knowledgeable and helpful. She got to the bottom of my kidney problem (which was not an easy task). I highly recommend her.

does not really take enough time to actually sit and talk to the patient it almost feels like you sit down, small talk, and you are out. I feel cheated as a patient I know she is busy but I am there to SEE HER NOT FOUR WALLS AND THEN SAY GOODBYE TO THEM I am sorry DR. mMtcka
