Dr. Mathews did my knee replacement surgery at the end of April. I am super thrilled to be able to walk now. I've not had such a comfortable walk in about 35 years. He is my miracle worker for sure. Thank you all at Fondren & Dr. Mathews office for such a wonderful, deserved experience.

Jane Erickson – Jun 05, 2020
Dr Mathews replaced my right hip in February and will be replacing my left knee in a few weeks. I have absolute trust in him to give me the same high quality of health care I received the first time. He and his staff were very good at explaining my options and the care I would receive. Everyone I came in contact with were very professional and caring.

Dorothy – May 19, 2020
I was in Houston to see another doctor about my shoulders. I live 3 hours from Houston. Dr. Mathews made time between surgeries to see me about my hip without an appointment. His staff took X-rays, Dr. Mathews explained what I needed, and scheduled me for surgery June 22. He and his staff made the visit very quick and nice. I look forward to getting my new hip.

Pauline Breaux – May 08, 2020
Nice, short visit. Dr. Mathews knew my medical history and has helped me before. After looking at my xrays that were just made in his office, Dr. Mathews recommended physical therapy for pain I was experiencing in hip muscles. He wrote me a prescription which I will have when I begin physical therapy this coming Thursday afternoon, May 7, 2020.
