Specialties

Dr. Earl B Matthew has the following 2 specialties

  • Infectious Disease

    An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
    Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
    Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

  • 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.

Wound Care

Dr. Matthew was very concerned about the wound on my toe. He took the time to explain the procedure he did on my toe and why he was doing it. This was very comforting to me as I am diabetic.

I could never say enough or find the perfect words to express how much Dr. Mathews has done for my husband and I. I am SO incredibly grateful that he was put in our path along a very long and extremely trying and testing journey. For 3 months I literally didn't sleep more than an hour every night because my husband would wake up screaming and crying in debilitating pain. It is an aweful feeling to see someone you love in SO much pain and can do nothing to help them. For 3 months I went round and round with insurance companies, Dr. Offices, the Social Security office and anybody and everybody I could get to atleast listen and try and point me in any direction that wasn't backwards. But it all paid off when Dr. Mathews stepped in. He truly was my divine intervention. He has gone and continues to go so above and beyond what I have EVER seen any other dr. or just human being would do for someone else. I have never once had to go through his nurse to get a response from him. I had his cell number that if he didn't answer right away, he would call me back within 10 min. He called me from Colorado, while on his vacation, to check and see how my husband was. I sat there and waited in his office with him while he got on the phone with the insurance company and made sure that procedures where authorized and taken care of before we left his office. He took his time to explain everything in ways that actually made since and weren't just big long medical terms. Even when it had nothing to do with his specialty or what he was seeing my husband for (which was an infection in his spine that Dr. Mathew said in the 40 yr of practice he had NEVER seen before) he would still call and let me know what was going on, help me get medications and procedures put through the insurance red tape, and answered all the questions the OTHER Dr. didn't seem to have time to go into with us. I have NEVER seen any other doctor truly care and make you feel like you weren't just another person sitting in the waiting room 2 hrs after your appointment time. I was truly blessed the day I came across Dr.Mathews and I honestly cant say enough to show my appreciation and gratitude for everything. But most of all for being human, caring about his patients, and taking the time to go that extra mile to help you time and again and always with a humble smile a great attitude, and without a single hesitation. There aren't enough stars in this review to even start to justify the rating that Earl Mathews the man, and the Dr. deserve.
