This has got to be one of the worst appointments I have ever had with a medical professional. While filling out my paperwork one of the receptionist interrupts me stating she needed my credit card. She walks away and doesn’t return.I get called by a gentleman ( I use that term loosely) who I thought was another doctor. When I stated that I expected to see Dr Matthew he states “ I’m not a doctor) he doesn’t introduce himself, he talks at me and just appears miserable. I’m already getting irritated especially with the high expectations I had developed due to the positive reviews. Dr Matthew arrives shortly after and although friendly, she appeared to rush me and not listen. She laughed at one of my concerns and tells me “everyone has that” and completely brushed me off. What made it worse was the fact that her assistant stood at the door rocking side to side like a bouncer staring into space. Dr Matthew noticed my facial expression and told me he had to be there to take notes. I don’t know how he was able to do that while arms were crossed. I was specific with the meds I felt I could benefit from, however I was recommended their creams which were expensive. I stated that I wanted generic prescriptions which she seemed disappointed about. I felt like I was trapped in medical spa. I wanted to see a dermatologist that cared about the condition of my skin not someone who cared pushing products. No Thanks!! Kindness, patience and a listening ear goes a long way.

Doctor Mathew is great. The billing department awful. I called a few times, left vm, they never called back. I saw her 3 times and I won’t go there ever again because of the unprofessional staff supporting the doctor. The lastthing you want is dealing with billing issues without being able to talk to anyone.

Big fan of Dr. Mathew - tells it like it is and is super informative, but also efficient. I feel like she is highly competent but also assuages my concerns when I think I've permanently scarred my skin but have insteadjust spilled citrus juice on myself. I trust her.

She was great. Really took her time in talking with me- explaining my diagnosis and was honest about treatments (or lack of great options) and just general skin discussions. Felt like she actually was invested in making sure I got thebest care. I also liked how casual and informally she spoke with me. I highly recommend her.
