in Lake Jackson, TX |
I highly recommend Dr. Mathews as an Orthopedic Surgeon.. I recently had my left hip replaced and my results appear textbook. I am very pleased. I experienced very little discomfort from the procedure. Follow up appointments were on time and all my questions were answered. A word about the hospital. The staff and facility were excellent. - very helpful. BTW - The food was the best hospital food ever! Again, I highly recommend Dr. Mathews.
in New Braunfels, TX |
I have referred friends to Dr. Mathews in the past and will continue to do so in the future. Dr. Mathews did partial knee replacements both left and right. The care and concern from both Dr. Mathews and his staff is above and beyond excellent. I would never trust anyone else.
Houston, TX |
This is my second procedure done by him. He is an excellent doctor
in Crosby, TX |
Dr. Mathews is a highly skilled, top of his field surgeon. P.S. I would like to praise the staff that helped me during my surgical stay at Texas Orthopedic Hospital .They were professional, friendly, helpful. and took very good care of me. Thank you Stephanie (PRN PT, Tiff, Tech, Anna, Day Nurse and Sarah Night Nurse. Excellent staff!!!.
in Dickinson, Texas |
Could not have asked for more. Recommended by another Dr. at this hospital. Perfect Dr., staff and Hospital. If you are looking for one of the best, you have found him!
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Mathews is an excellent doctor, a true professional, and a smart practitioner. I am grateful to him. He tried a new approach for my second hip replacement that improved upon my experience with another surgeon on my other leg. That showed intellectual creativity and effective medicine. Texas Orthopedic Hospital is well run also. That makes all the difference.
in Beaumont,Tx |
The whole experience was fantastic. I could not have asked for a better doctor/hospital/support group, The quality of care was outstanding, and the hospital first rate. The travel from Beaumont was well worth the time and will highly recommend Fondren Orthopedics and Texas Orthopedic Hospital.
in Houston, TX |
I believe that Dr. Mathews and his team (Sarah & Yesenia) are the best complete team around the city. I have been a repeat client of them after several years. Both of my surgeries went very well. And let me tell you, these are some very tough surgeries to go through with! I strongly recommend this team to anyone that is looking for their specific skill-set. Five stars!
in Colmesneil, Texas |
I couldn't have been treated any better. This was my second knee replacement. The care is excellent and I would recommend Dr. Mathews to anyone and do quite often. I hear horror stories about people's experiences from other doctors and I always say, you should have went to Houston and see Dr. Mathews. I refer people all the time. Thanks for all the great care.
in Houston, Tx |
Dr. Mathews had to replace a knee replacement that another Dr. totally messed up, after Dr. Mathews did the new knee replacement my knee felt AWESOME, I would highly recommend and have to many people Dr. Mathews
in Katy, TX |
This surgeon was not trained on anterior hip replacement but he did one on me. His partner, Dr. Goytia, who WAS trained and listed at the DePuy site had the equipment, I found out later, so Mathews decided to do an anterior hip replacement on me. I had continuing pain for a year and he did nothing. At the hospital, the staff stole my pain medication and gave me ice and Mathews said that sort of thing always happens in hospitals. He is the least caring doctor I've ever had
in Humble, TX |
When I came to Dr. Mathews I could barely walk any longer..He did a full knee replacement and I was back at work in 10 days or less ... The pain I had with the replacement was only surgical pain and within a few weeks it was gone. I have had him do both my knees and can tell you I am pain free totally. He gave me my life back for sure .I have referred several people to him and they have been so happy with the surgery and also have their lives back pain free. The staff (Sarah) is the best!!
in Friendswood, TX |
