Chico, CA |
Amazing dr and team. So happy we drove to Chico (from Redding) to have Dr. Matthews do my husbands surgery. He had a colon resection and a gallbladder removal. He spent all the time we needed with us and was very much about patient care. Excellent choice and excellent surgeon. http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Richard_D_Matthews/reviews#ixzz4B17gE9Sb
