Dr Matthews is quite a wonderful doctor! He takes times to discuss information in detail, with a caring & patient manner. I never feel like I'm a bother or he doesn't have time for me. He shows genuine care & concern for his patients, reminds of you necessary improvements, but in a gentle way. My husband & I ate very grateful to have him as our primary physician.

Meet your Doctor

What led you to become a doctor or choose your focus of medicine?
I have wanted to be a doctor since I was 12 years old; it just seemed to be the right thing to do with my life.

What about your line of work do you find most rewarding and why?
I enjoy being able to take care of the entire person, to prevent disease, diagnose problems (if present) and be a good listener.

How would a patient describe you?
Friendly, professional, complete care.

What's your proudest moment as a doctor?
When my daughters were in high school and both told me that I was taking care of all of their friends' parents and grandparents, and that they really liked me.

What do you find most encouraging about the work you do?
It's encouraging how people appreciate when you do a good job for them and their family.

What are your top priorities for every patient you see?
Listen to my patient, discuss his or her concerns, and review recommended health screens on every visit.
