What People Say About Dr. Paul Matz, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Matz recently performed a microdiscectomy on my L5 vertebrae to relive dameage and pressure to my sciatic nerve. Surgery was a 100% improvement within just a few weeks. Recovery has been status quo. Highly recommend he and his staff. The best part of my experience was his attention to time regarding my scheduled Appointment, I never had to wait past the time I was scheduled, imagin showing up on time being seen on time and leaving with in an 1/2 hour of your scheduled appointment.

By far the best Neuro Surgeon! I was in chronic pain for over a year being passed from one doctor to another, only to be told there was nothing wrong with me. Missing work, having to walk with a cane and being doped up with meds sent me into a depression from hell. I decided to walk into the ER of St. Luke's where Dr. Matz ran a CT found the problem, scheduled surgery and I woke up pain free and have been so for years!
