Michigan Avenue Primary Care has a great team (friendly front desk, fast "service," kind nurses, etc.) and Dr. Mathew is no exception. She patiently and respectfully listens to your concerns and makes you feel heard. I've dealt with joint painfor three years but this was the first time I left an appointment feeling like I had an action plan to get back to 100%. Dr. Mathew is friendly and solutions-oriented, making me feel comfortable and empowered. Cannot recommend her enough.

Dr. Mathew is fantastic! She’s so personable, she’s smart, she’s empathetic. I went in with a few concerns and she turned what might otherwise be an uncomfortable or embarrassing visit into something so comfortable that I felt like I was talkingwith a good friend who had only best interest in mind. I went in needing answers and she not only provided answers she provided support. I highly recommend.

I've never liked a doctor as much as like Dr. Mathew! She's very personable. After seeing her, she recommended I go to the ER and after she heard from staff at the hospital, she called me right away to check onme. She called me again the next day to make sure I was doing well. I cannot say enough good things about her and would recommend her to anyone!

Everything was perfect! Dr. Mathew is amazing. She is validating, understanding, comforting, collaborative, and kind. I was extremely nervous, as I have come across many doctors who are not fat-friendly or have no sensitivity to weight.Dr. Mathew took my concerns seriously without blaming them on my weight. I am very pleased to have a primary care doctor now who makes me feel seen, heard, and cared for.

It was nice that they sent me a reminder for followup blood work. I asked her team via the portal if it was too early to get my vaccine booster but they said it was fine when it actually was tooearly. I will have to return for my booster. I was taken to the room a little past time and it took the doctor around 30 mins to see me even though I had a 8:30am appointment and another 15 mins before I got my blood taken. Definitely could have been faster especially since it was early in the morning.

Dr Mathew was incredible. I booked an appointment regarding an allergic reaction that actually stopped occurring a few days before my appointment and wasn't bothering me anymore. Dr Mathew still gave a full checkup and explained thoroughlywhat had happened, why it did, how to prevent it, and how to manage it if it happens again. She explained things in an easy to understand manner and was incredibly attentive and personal-able the entire time. I didn't wait long at all and will definitely be back for my yearly check-up and anything that happens in between.
