Dr. Matter made me feel like he really cared about me and what I was going through. He got me into his office for an appointment immediately and got me scheduled for my procedure within days. The staff there at the clinic was phenomenal. They are all so friendly and take time to explain everything to you and help relieve the stress of being there.

I already have recommended Dr. Matter to family and friends. He diagnosed my ulcerative colitis many years ago and has performed a colonoscopy on me every other year for....well I've lost count but I've probably had 8 colonoscopies performed by him over the years. He knows what he is doing, he is not a very outspoken person but he is kind, patient, and answers all my questions and follows up to make sure all of my questions have been answered.

Went there for chrons attack after some food poisoning, they gave me a medication I was already taking at a high dose without checking my file! I would have overdosed if my boyfriend didn't recognize the generic name! I go back for a different perscription and they perscription a sulfate drink I'm allergic too, thank god for pharmacists doing their job! They don't check patient files here and that s just scary.

Professional, pleasant with me. P.A. Summer is also very easy to spoke with. Staff is quite professional and helpful. Dr. Matter's willingness to continue to accept me during an insurance dispute he was having certainly made my life easier. I appreciate him and the service he has rendered my wife and I.

A wonderful doctor. He has been professional, courteous, and is always to the point when it comes to my health issues. I highly recommend Dr. Matter to anyone in need of a gastroenterologist.

This doctor is cold as a fish. Terrible bedside manner. Totally misdiagnosed my daughter gall bladder condition. Thank goodness for her family doctor who got it right. I continued to use him for my colonoscopy as my pre-visit had already been completed. I regret that decision. Dr. Matter had the audacity to charge for a full office visit just to obtain the results of my colonoscopy. Money, money, money, is all he is about. Will never use again and I recommend you don't either.
