I had been to two other ENT doctors with my throat and and an ear problems. Neither of them seemed to know what my conditions were. I then went to Dr. Matallana who immediately diagnosed what both the conditions were. He listens to what you have to tell him and answers your questions. I would recommend him to everyone.
I have been going to Dr. Matt for a while now after a life threatening procedure. He has been the only one to care and explain to me his professional opinion which made me feel so comfortable that I finally found a Doctor that has compassion and more faith in me than I did! He is a great Doctor and Surgeon, I can't say enough good about him! Thank You for helping me and all the compassion you and your staff have shown me through one of my toughest times in my life!
