Dr Matthews eye clinic

Over all, my visit went ok excpet for some minor irratants. I am naturally a suspiciiors person and by suspicion ran rampid as there was such confusion in the waiting room. I had an 8:30 appointment and alas so did about 20 other patients. All staff members appeared knowledgeable but in rush. All but one (1) employee washed their hands. Upon seeing the Dr who have me a two minute exam I received a laser surgery (cataract) on one eye. He used due dillagence upon charting the correct eye to operate on. The actial surgery took about 15 to 20 seconds. When I left the office at about 11:30 ther were no other patients in the waiting room. I do not know what the charges will be but suspect the charges will be out of site for a minute and one half the Drs time.

Unfortunately this man holds himself equal to God. No bedside manner, I'm still amazed at why he would choose a profession that deals with people who have serious problems.

This Doctor has no patience for Patients

My first visit with Matthews was straightforward and money was the key. He had no promise for my recovery. He was paid out of pocket by my family who knew I was going blind. He did not have time to discuss my diagnoses or prognosis in detail. The paperwork I received after each treatment was insufficient for the medications provided to be implemented properly. I have spoken to several people who told me a about an abominable specialist they had visited and it turned out to be this man. He could be a wonderful doctor if he could contain his high regard for Himself and show some compassion for his Patients.

The single most terrifying day of my life! Hades will freeze over before I return. I had the audacity to "Waste his Time" on baseline data, requested by a Neurologist, when he has patients who need him! I would rather get a Dog, they are warm.
