My experience with Dr. Niby Mathew was excellent. She was sincerely apologetic for running late and gave me her full attentionthroughout the entirety of my appointment. I had several questions and hesitations regarding birth control, and she spent a lot of time explaining the different options without pushing me towards any decisions. I would highly recommend Dr. Mathew to anyone looking for a caring, competent physician!

I was very promptly seen on my appt. Both the nurse and PA were very polite and easy going. I had a somewhat embarrassing issue to discuss but both were very professional and that made me much more comfortable. The visit took 45 min beginning to end--very efficient!

They walked me through every step of my visit—the communication and care was obvious throughout my whole experience.

My appointment with Dr. Mathew provided the positive experience I've become accustomed to. Although I'm thankful enough to only see her once a year, she remembers me, has reviewed my medical history before we talk, and takes our conversation (and the exam) seriously. I appreciate that any concerns I have are not dismissed, and she's very clear about options and recommendations. I look forward to, rather than dread, these physicals.

I thought Dr Mathew was nice. While she was friendly, I did feel rushed in my 15 minute visit with her, which makes me leery about returning. The greater fault here is the office staff. In short, they were unprofessional; neglecting to update my appointment, repeated phone calls to me to answer questions already discussed in my appointment (lack of communication with each other), having me fill out numerous forms post-visit unnecessarily, and generally unfriendly and unhelpful. I will likely only return to this doctor and office if I have to and recommend this place with hesitation.

I had a 8:45am appointment and wasn't brought to the room until a little before 9am and then waited until around 9:10am for the doctor. Then, I waited until 9:50am for the nurse to draw my blood. The whole preventative checkup appointment should NOT have taken over an hour. It felt very inefficient. How behind schedule can you be shortly after you open? Otherwise, all the staff were very friendly and professional.

Dr. Mathew was great to visit. I was very nervous looking for a new provider and really wanted to work with a woman of colour. Dr. Mathew was kind and patient. She listened and validated my concerns which is very important to me. I am so glad I found her. Her staff is amazing AND the office has complimentary snacks and chapstick.... Those two alone would keep me coming back :)

After 3 years (judge me not) of not visiting a doctor, I had extreme anxiety regarding my first appt. Dr. Mathew was great and diminished my anxiety. She was kind, professional, caring and direct. She expressed empathy about my situation and created a plan of action. She explains things well and was over pleasant. I definitely would recommend her and looks forward to her assistance with my health and well being.

It is really hard to make time to go see the doctor, so I appreciate that we are able to cover a lot in one visit. Dr. Niby greats you like a friend and acts like we have known each other for years (this is my second visit in two years. She listens and asks questions without it feeling like I am being rushed. She is thoughtful about making referrals and consolidating efforts. She always makes sure to remind you to followup with questions or so she can check on any issues she wants you to monitor. I like that her staff is mindful of the cost of things and let's you know where there might be additional costs, or what may or may not be covered. Everyone from start to finish is nice and helpful. One last thing, and let me be real - I have a busy chaotic life but this office and ZocDoc made sure there was NO WAY I was missing this appointment - 3 emails, 3 texts, an email about putting in my information and then a reminder email when I didn't do it. It was also awesome that after inputting everything - the office didn't ask me all of those things all over again. I was in and out in a little over an hour with referral, prescriptions and an answer to an issue I was wondering about.
