Dr. Dwight F Matthias has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

    An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
    Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Very Disappointed

I went to Dr. Matthias for management of hypothyroidism, after having my thyroid removed (cancer). I visited him three times and he never once touched my neck. He sat in the chair across from me and talked. How can he determine if there are any nodules or anything that needs addressing, if he never touches the patient? The last time I was there, he did not close the door to the examining room. There was a patient sitting in the examining room across the hall (with the door open also). She and I could easily have had a conversation. I'm sure she was privy to every word that Dr. Matthias and I spoke to each other. Very unprofessional. His office staff, specifically, Maggie - does not do what she says she will do. I went for blood work three different times and the order had not been sent over, after Maggie had told me she would take care of it. Incompetent, in my opinion. I went to the office and confronted her. She was very condescending and rude. I will never go back to that office. Do not recommend.

As reading the reviews I do not want a doctor who refuses to help with thyroid. You should listen to a patient they know their own system and how it works. Doctors are to help along with the progress.

Very Professional Doctors

Dr. Matthias has been very accurate in both of his observation of my Thyroid in 208 and 2013 which lead to a Total Thyroidectomy. He is very professional, compassionate and a people person. He follows up with you the old fashion way. (by giving you a call at home to make sure you are okay). He also goes the extra mile for his patients. Great job Doc. I highly recommend Dr. Matthias.

Great doctor but needs new staff

One of the best doctors I have been to. His bedside manners are terrific. He takes his time on explaining things and answers all of your questions very thoroughly. With that being said he often is running behind due to the fact that he is so thorough. It can be frustrating but I try to understand that he spends as much time as necessary with each patient including myself. His staff is not as great. 9 times out of 10 they are rude and lazy. Every so often you will catch them in a great mood. I have considered changing doctors numerous times after dealing with them and have had family go elsewhere because of them but it's hard to find a good endocrinologist in the area so I've decided to stay for now. I don't miss an opportunity to let Dr. Matthias know about his staff just to make sure he knows if I do leave they are the reason why.
