My 11 yr old grandson plays outfield and pitches on a travel baseball team. He was experiencing some pain in his elbow and then got an injury to that same elbow. Dr. Mathien treated him which included taking him out of baseball for several weeks. My grandson was very upset but Dr. Mathien was excellent in handling this. He speaks directly to the patient in a manner they can understand and shows great respect and understanding. Each time we were there, he took that extra moment to give him a "little life lesson". Not only is Dr. Greg Mathien an excellent physician, he is good person!
I have been a patient of Dr. Mathien for several years. After years of knee pain, therapy, injections and treatments, I finally gave in. ,I had a complete knee replacement performed by Dr. Mathien. I could not have been any more pleased with his care and the surgery ... or with the support of his support staff. I am happy to say I am now back ... better than ever!
