Dr. Mathews performed bunion surgery on my right foot in September, 2020. We met via zoom to discuss my X-rays and the procedure. Dr. Mathews was patient and clear with his explanations. A few weeks later I was in his office having my bunion repaired. I was a little anxious about being awake for the procedure but it’s nice to not deal with the after affects of sedation. The worst part of the surgery was the tourniquet around my ankle. I felt pressure, heard the saw, but felt no pain. I hobbled out of his office with a half cast on my repaired foot about 1.5 hrs later. I followed the after care instructions and was healed and walking after a couple of weeks. I am writing this review over 3 years later to be sure the surgery worked. It has, and I’m so happy that I can hike with my dogs for hours with no pain! Thank you, Dr. Mathews! I have referred a number of folk to you in the past few years.
Dr Mathews performed surgery on my bunion and tailor's bunion 4 years ago. My feet were terrible. His surgery was a resounding success! I have had no issues 4 years post-surgery. I am now scheduled to have my other foot done as well. I trust him completely! His staff are extremely helpful and accommodating.
Dr. Mathews is very personable and professional! He makes feel relaxed while having my toe treated! He did a great job! I love his great sense of humour too.
