Dr. Matthews is a specialist, treating just a few specific conditions, as I understand. I would probably not be in a position to recommend him. If I knew someone with the same condition I have, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Really like Dr. Matthews and would highly recommend him from a medical perspective. But that recommendation would be tainted by reservations about the administration of care once you're in the office. This needs work.
