    completely satisfied and scheduled me for additional necessary tests to try to reach condition.

    It takes too long to get to see him. His appointments are booked far in advance. I have decided to schedule follow up appointments "just in case" my symptoms do not resolve. Otherwise it would take too long to see him when symptoms reoccur. Provider is very good.

    Receiving excellent care from Dr. Matern and his staff.

    Dr. Matern called me to report my results late on a Friday evening when they came back to him. I really appreciate his dedication to sharing them in a timely manner. Especially the fact they could have waited until normal business hours. But he truly cares and I really appreciate that.

    Good people genuinely concerned about me.

    The wait time for the appointment was almost 2 months with a doctor's recommendation. Wait times to get into seeing doctors has significantly increased over the last year. I've had multiple appt. requests take 3-4 months to see the doctor; not liking this situation @ all.

    I called ahead to see if I needed to get a lab test done and the doctor's office called me back almost immediately.

    I have gone to this care provider for several years. I always have received the best care. Even though I live 90 + miles from his office, I really like my visits with him. I consider him as a close friend. I always look forward to my visits with him.
