I Love Dr.Matco, I just think he has too many appointment's scheduled in one day. I really did not have enough time to go over everything that I wanted too during my visit... sensing he was kind of rushed I did not continue with more questions I had, and more issues to discuses.

Dr. Matko was very concerned about my problem and was very up front that he wasn't the physician who could fix it, which was refreshing. He apologized that we drove from Toledo to see him and that he couldn't help (which wasn't his fault or schedulings fault, I have a rather unique situation for my age). Dr. was very kind and advised of two other CC doctors that could help and followed up with messages to their offices to help get me in asap.

Reviewed on Jul 15, 2019

The doctor dismissed my questions/concerns about using Tylenol for pain relief. I referred him to my meds chart to indicate I already take an NSAD and didn't want to increase that. "Tylenol won't help" not a good answer for someone on high blood pressure meds.
