Have you seen Dr. Cristina Matera?
Posted on September 1st, 2016
Really enjoy having Dr. Matera for my OB/GYN. She spends the time I need and answers all my questions. She is understanding and empathetic. Yet when it comes to doing the right thing with your health - she is no -nonsense. She speaks to me like a peer and doesn't dismiss me or talk down to me like so many doctors. She is a great doctor and a great human being. I feel better now than I did a few years ago and I can largely attribute that to her care.

For the first time in many years (I am 64), I have a physician who actually takes time to understand the person within the patient. Having seen many physicians in many areas, she is among the best and my favorite doctor. I have complete confidence that I am receiving the best care possible. She is compassionate as well as competent, patient as well as professional. I have recommended her to my daughter who will switching to her care. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Matera, is an outstanding physician. She is very thorough and conscientious. She has a very well run office at which things do NOT slip through the cracks. She takes time with her patient and is committed to proving excellent care. She listens and is responsive.
Finally a great fertility Dr.

We saw two other Dr.s and Matera gets it right on every front. We had the best results and she was always a phone call away. She even called us on Sundays. Great caring kind Doc.
Best doctor I've ever had
Posted on September 1st, 2011
Dr. Matera is the best doctor I've ever had. She is first and foremost, passionate about what she does and intellectually curious. This makes her particularly effective at helping people. She is also wonderfully compassionate and guided my husband and I in such a caring way on our rocky - but ultimately successful - path towards having children. I cannot recommend her enough.
My experience was embarrasingly bad
Posted on February 3rd, 2011
Dr. Matera's office has incorrectly billed the services to my insurance resulting in tens of thousands of dollars of bills that are not covered. Worse she won't recode and properly fix them. I have been waiting for almost a year. The bills were so substantial I had to discontinue treatment. Now, my calls to her office go unreturned. I feel helpless. I can not recommed her practice to anyone.
To provide details, first, I personally determine the diagnosis and procedure codes to ensure that they accurately reflect the services rendered. Any modification, or "recoding" to enhance insurance reimbursement is fraudulent. Second, my office submits all claims directly to the insurance companies as a service to our patients and to minimize excessive paperwork and record-keeping. In this circumstance, the patient's insurance applied a much lower reimbursement to identical services provided when they underwent treatment to have their first child 2 years ago. Despite the fact that I am not contracted with her insurance company, I reviewed all of the billing, comparing and contrasting reimbursements from her first successful attempt of pregnancy to the current and composed a 3 page letter to the insurance provider appealing their extremely low reimbursement. This was achieved within the time-frame designated by the insurance company and they have since made full payments that exceed 80% of the charges. I am truly sorry that this patient felt helpless, however our billing practices are upfront and transparent. We work with integrity to help our patients get maximal reimbursement. Physicians cannot be blamed when the insurance companies arbitrarily assign low reimbursements. Sincerely, Dr. Cristina Matera
Extremely dedicated doctor/very special doctor/highly recommend

Dr. Matera is very special. There are not many doctors like her anymore. She is so dedicated to her patients. She spends time with you, answers all your questions and very detail oriented. She calls you after visits and spends time with you on the phone. I have never had a doctor call me on a Sunday and at 9pm at night and spend time speaking with me about my concerns. She is really caring! One of a kind! What a special doctor!
