Dr Matzinger explained the whole procedure first visit. I felt very comfortable understanding everything that was about to happen. His office staff was outstanding. I knew when and where to go for pre op testing bowel prep given. Nurse practitioner is outstanding Dr Matzinger is very lucky to have her she saw me twice a day in hospital. Most hospitals use there own staff you are not lucky enough to see your own doc that often. My pain was controlled. i give this office double a plus

I came to Dr. Matzsinger as a NP with a growth on my thyroid. I was ref by my family doctor. was concerned and somewhat nervous. After reviewing my scan and ultrasound, he eased my concern with explaining in great detail that it is small and we should wait 6 months and do another ultrasound and re evaluate. I was impressed, most surgeons jump right into surgery as no matter what. He didn't. He did what was best for me. I still may have to later but that's ok. He answered all questions patiently.
