Dr. Matter not only knows his stuff but is constantly learning to improve his skills. He believes in 'doctoring' until he can't doctor any more which is rare these days. He doesn't give up and because if his knowledge and his never-give-up mentality my Dad is still alive today. He gave us hope when everyone else said it was impossible. Wonderful Dr., wonderful man.
