I have been seeing Dr. Matt for many years, both for skin issues/eruptions/rosacea, but also for cosmetic dermatology. He is up to the minute on all of the newest treatments and discussed the pros and cons of each treatment knowledgeably andin an understandable way that helps with decision making. I have recommended him to several friends and each has been impressed with his professionalism and kindness. I have also found his staff to be friendly and helpful. I am happy I found him!

As a new patient, I was extremely impressed with how thorough Dr. Matt was, seeing as I had only come in for one small thing. He took the time to learn about my background, ask lots of questions, and even examineother areas of my face and suggest treatments for things I hadn't even thought of. Front office staff was also extremely nice and organized! Highly recommended!

Good doctor - but not thrilled about getting so many thorough followups to ensure I'd be there (email, text, and phone) only to have to wait 40 minutes for the appointment to begin.

I went in for a variety of spots and bumps on my skin from sun, aging and scaring. He was friendly and patient. He seems to know his subject well. He took his time explaining each problem. He treated all ofthe different blemishes immediately and with less pain than expected. All in all a very satisfying visit.

The secretary was distracted and borderline negligent, she went to buy shampoo and forgot to announce me. After waiting we'll over an hour I walked up to the counter and she was surprised to see me. At the end she chargedme the wrong copay amount and I have been receiving bills from them for months. The Doctor was not much better and I found him to be condescending and inattentive.

Overall a very good visit. The fact Dr. Matt sees patients on a Saturday shows he's in touch with real people who work during the week. He is patient, explains his procedures and is very gentle.

I was SO impressed by Mohini. She went above and beyond with guest experience. I was trying to get my treatment done right away because I had been dealing with issues for a very long time with getting to the rightdoctor and for my prescription coverage from my insurance. Mohini sensed my urgency and immediately took action to calling my insurance in order to get the treatment I was seeking for the next day. I was so overwhelmed with gratitude when she called the next morning to let me know everything was cleared and I was good to go with the appointment. Dr. Matt was also a joy. He answered all my questions, and even made some great suggestions about concerns I had that I didn't even ask him about. He is very knowledgable and willing to help. I just wanted to say thank you to Dr. Matt and Mohini for making me feel taken care of and as though I mattered!

The receptionists were awful. From the waiting room we could hear them talking about the doctors, assistants, and patients! When we asked about how much longer the wait would be (after waiting 40 minutes), the receptionist huffed and puffedso loudly that I was embarrassed for her and the doctors that work there. Terrible staff.
