All I can say is Dr Mathias is a phenomenal doctor. Took my 13 year old there yesterday. It was our first time there. He was so thorough. His knowledge and bedside manner far exceeded my expectations, believe me my expectations are extremely high. Even my 13 yr old told the Dr wow, you are good you really know your stuff. I will definitely be a regular patient and my other daughter too who wears glasses. Thanks again. it's rare to find doctors such as Dr Matias.
