I have held the telephone for over 20 minutes to reschedule an appointment. First time I called it was longer and I finally hung up. Dr. Matzinger is an excellent surgeon. Getting in touch with someone at his office, however, is a nightmare. Still holding phone.

I had hemorrhoids - not little ones but big ones. Dr. Matzinger explained the procedure to me and made sure I knew what to expect. There were no complications even though it turned out to be more of a job than he expected. As he said, the first few days after the surgery were bad but each day saw more progress. Now, three and a half weeks later, I'm a little sore but it's WAY better than it was. The follow-up visits with the PA were very helpful in providing answers to my questions.

I had surgery 5/16/2017.Dr Matzinger and his Nurse Practitioner Kelly took care of me in best possible way. Right after surgery Dr M was right there to explain everything. Kelly came every morning and every afternoon /evening to check on me. My follow up care was excellent. I was always a able to contact them would always call him for any other surgery I may need

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.

Dr. Matzinger's God-given skills saved my life. I was shot four times, with three of those shots in the chest. Four entry wounds and three exit wounds. Dr. Matzinger is a wonderfully talented surgeon. I am also proud to call him my friend. Thank-you. JAH
