Have been going to Dr. Matt for ten years - he's smart, attentive, and very professional.

The staff is kind and always makes appts that work with my last minute scheduling. Dr. Matt has for the last six years kept me beautiful and healthy. He found a skin cancer which was invisible to the eye. He takes time to listen and thus give personalized treatment.

If you have a skin issue, be prepared to visit Dr. Matt at least 3 times before it gets resolved. He NEVER solves the problem on the first visit and he will always send you home with bags of samples and unnecessary prescriptions - and he'll perform unnecessary procedures during your appointment which you'll learn about later when you get your bill. When you tell him what's wrong or if you ask any questions, he gives you this look like you're crazy or you're wasting his time. I've never experienced a more useless doctor.

Dr. Matt is an excellent representation of a well rounded health care provider. He provided/is providing me with excellent care during my laser hair removal; including his ability to explain and perform procedure with great detail (I could see great results after my first treatment with him). He is attentive in following up with me to assure that I was doing well post-procedure and is readily available regarding any questions/concerns I may have. And his bedside manner is immaculate!As far as cost goes, Dr. Matt's fees are reasonable and appropriate for the type of procedure being performed and considering the type of care and attentiveness you receive as one of his patient's you definitely get your money's worth and then some! His staff has been friendly and professional on every interaction I have had with them and they make you feel very comfortable and relaxed. I highly recommend seeking the services of Dr. Matt for you dermatological needs.

His staff was so personal and made sure everything you need to have in your charts was detailed for Dr. Matt when he comes in to see the patient. Dr. Matt is a very caring professional and he makes sure that the treatments his patients receive are communicated thoroughly and well understood by all parties involved. Thank you, Kyle

This is the worst doctor I have ever been to. I got a rash on my arms from a trip to Thailand and went to see him about it. He told me I had some terrible disease (unrelated to my trip) which basically has no cure and told me the rash may or may not go away. He gave me NOTHING for it. I went to another doctor the next day and she said its probably an allergic reaction, she gave me some prescription cortizone, and it went away within a few days.Now, a year and a half later, his office just sent me a bill for $360 for his "services". Don't ever go to this doctor.. he will misdiagnose you and then charge you ridiculous amounts of money for it.

He spent time listening to my individual needs. He was creative in finding solutions. He spent the time to explain the diagnosis and treatment suggestions. He answered all of my questions. I would recommend him to a friend.

Dr. Matt is a great doctor. I have been going to his office in Santa Monica since I was working on that side of the city, and now that I live on the other side of the city, I continue to trek over to Santa Monica to see the doctor. While I have insurance now, when I started seeing the doctor, I did not have insurance coverage, and he worked with me to develop the best plan for my skin that didn`t cost me a lot of money out of pocket. Now that I have insurance, I see the doctor monthly and have experienced great results on my skin. I often even see the dermatologist for minor skin things I used to see a general practitioner for. I would highly recommend Dr. Matt to anyone looking for a dermatologist for anything skin related.

misdiagnosis - easily picked up by non-specialist at a later date
