Dr. Matthew performed a triple by-pass surgery for me. He has a wonderful bedside manner. I was pretty scared when I first went to see him and he was so down to earth and kind that I had total confidence in him. I think it's a rare combination for someone to be so brilliant and educated and also able to relate to a scared patient almost like a personal friend.
