I had changes in vision that concerned me. Dr. Matthews came in on Saturday and checked my eye for detached retina. He was prompt, courteous, skilled and made me feel comfortable.

My visits to *Dr. Matthews are regarding an eye problem, thus a number of these questions are not relevant. I believe *Dr. Matthews to be particularly competent.
