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.
