Dr. Merritt S Matthews Sr has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

This was the worst experience with healthcare that I have ever had and Dr. Matthews and his staff are perfect examples of how and why the healthcare system is failing. The office manager was the most unprofessional person I have come across. Dr.Matthew was even worse when I addressed my concerns with him he even cursed at me. I don't know how he gets away with it. I'm sure its because most of Hus patients are low income and don't realize that they do not have to tolerate that type of treatment. He is taking advantage of his position and is a disgrace to the community he works in. I can only hope that more patients come forward or take the extra step to file grievences against him. He should be ashamed of himself.
