Patient Comments (5)
in Broken Arrow, OK |
Worst doctor I have ever had to experience while dealing with chronic depressive disorder. Should have his license REVOKED. Any letters after the end of his name, such as D.O., means he only used a dictionary to look up long words to sound too intellectual because it takes him longer to say anything of substance. Please, if you have any loved ones dealing with mental health issues, do not send them to Laureate Psychiatry.

He had a blatant disregard for my wellbeing and the opinions of myself and loved ones. Came off as a "pill pusher" and wouldn't listen to symptoms or history. Shouldn't be practicing medicine. It is scary that people like Dr. Matthews are allowed in this field.
in Tulsa, Oklahoma |
Dr. Matthews has a fundamental disregard for the well being of his patients. He refused to speak to me while I was under his supervision and I only had contact with his RN. Once I was able to see a different doctor, I learned that he had taken me off the wrong medication and that the dosage he said I was receiving was different than the actual ammount. He should not be allowed to practice medicine.

He has preconceived ideas and judgments that are particularly out of line for a psychiatrist.
Bartlesville, OK |
I was referred to him by my psychiatrist who retired. She left specific instructions to NOT make changes to my medication without discussing it with me first. Our first meeting lasted about 5 minutes. I left there with a refill for one of my medications. I didn't think to check if it was correct. I took it to the pharmacy he had cut my dose from 1 mg 3x's daily and 1 mg prn to 0.5mg 3x's daily with no prn. My previous doctor and I worked for almost 24yr to stabilize my condition.
