Patient Comments (2)
in Ballwin, MO |
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!
in St.Louis Mo |
Was the first to recognize the symptoms I was having after seeing 10 doctors he was the first to identify what was going on with me I have faith in him to do the surgery that is needed for me
