Bad news first: I recently had my daughter to see Mathews and his bedside manner had much to be desired. He did not introduce himself when he entered the room. There was a woman there whom I still do not know who she was or why she was there. The visit felt more like a trip to the principals office or being trapped in an interrogation room than it did an appointment with a doctor. He was very accusatory and negative. He made her sound like she was purposefully causing this to happen to her, told her he didn't believe what she was saying (about things I knew for a fact she was not lying about) and then told her he was pretty sure she wasn't going to do what she is supposed to. His approach had me angry and my daughter in tears by the end of the appointment. Good news: His poor demeanor and insulting way of speaking aside, he did give us what seemed to be good information and did seem very knowledgeable in his field.
I give Dr. Mathews 4stars all the way! I was seen weekly at a diffrent hospital and it wasn't to I met with him one time and he gave me the exact diagnosis of my unborn sons birth deffect(cloacal exstrophy)....While I was pregnant there was insurance issues so instead of seeing me in his clinic he saw me in his office where he dosen't see patients and at NO charge...I just think that was so amazing of him!God bless him! He explains things very well...umm..hes very personable and genuwine and i feel very comfortable with him! I would def reccomened him!!!!!
