What People Say About Dr. Robert Matheney, MD
Reply
Dr. Matheney is very unprofessional and rude. I had seen Dr. Matheney a few times before my last appointment and he does not read the patient chart before speaking. My mother came with me and he started speaking to her as if she was the patient. He became very defensive when speaking with him about some issues I was having, following a procedure, with a doctor he referred me to. Be careful when seeing him at the WJ location, they will put the medical director's name on your file instead of his.
