If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372.

Dr. Matthew is wonderful. When I first went to see him I had two rotator cuff tendons with complete tears and extremely significant loss of use of my dominant arm. After trying physical therapy, Dr. Matthew restored the function of my shoulder through a reverse total shoulder replacement. The good news is that I now have excellent range of motion back and am able to function normally with the limitations being weight restrictions when lifting overhead. I would highly recommend Dr. Matthew.
