Dr. Paul Matz is the best.

I think Dr Matz is an excellent, knowledgeable and easy to talk to Dr with a great bedside manner.

dr Matz said "your not listening to me " and "I'm trying to educate you ". I feel he was borderline rude to me and my wife.

Always have positive appointments with Dr Matz.

I was prescribed antibiotics, but when I called and reported that they were burning my stomach badly, I was told to discontinue them and go without, but not prescribed a replacement. I just got back from my regular doctor who said I definitely needed antibiotics and put me back on them. I therefore wasted several days when I should have been taking antibotics that I needed.

Good MD easy to talk to.

Dr. Matz is experienced, caring and intuitive, the best combination for a doc imho!

Professional. Compassionate. Thorough.

Dr. Matz facilitated an appointment that I needed right away that had been scheduled for 3 months away. I now have it in a week.

been going to Dr Matz for years annd years have always like ed him and his nurses one of the best Dr i have ever gone to sad part is he will be retiring some day than I will have to hunt up another DR

I came in because of severe lower back and he determined the cause and advised me of the treatment. The treatment worked and I'm able to move without pain.

Did not listen as well as I would have liked.

I trust Dr Matz and value him as my PCP.


I got the diagnosis of breast cancer on [...] from Dr. Matz. He made time to see me that same day and took time to explain things to me and answer all my questions. I trust him very much and feel like he really cares about me and his patience.

Dr. Matz insisted on using our time together to share a board book on the basics of Asthma even after admitting I was well informed. His statement was, "I know you already know this but I am going to go through it anyway". This was after I told him I had been going to an Asthma/Alergy specialist for the past 10 years and completely understand what Asthma is, how it effects my body, what medications I have tried and failed at managing the asthma, and how I manage it during Fire Season in Southern Oregon. He did not listen to what I had to say about My reactions. He repeatedly cut me off and told me to wait until he was finished. He prescribed medications I told him I previously took and could not tolerate. On the way out of the office I cancelled the nebulizer he ordered for me. When I got home I called the pharmacy and cancelled the five prescriptions he ordered for me and talked with the pharmacist about the reaction I had to the last medication and we came up with a plan to mediate these effects. Dr. Matz was a useless, frustrating visit for me and I will not accept council from him. He needs to listen to his patients instead of himself. I resent [...] this kind of disrespectful treatment.

I have had excellent care and experiences with the providers I have see these last 3 months.

receptionist seemed put outDoctor questioned why I was there and was abrupt

Dr. Matz is one of the best - always great bedside manner, patient explains things, very helpful- I have a lot of trust in him.

Dr Matz discovered my aneurism and made certain I was referred to a specialist.

I couldn't get in to see my regular primary care physican for several weeks for a worsening, persistent cough, but I was able to see Dr. Matz the same day. He was very professional and "to the point", which I appreciated. I was reluctant to try using an inhaler for lung problems, but he patiently expained the benefits to me and ordered a nebulizer session during my office visit so I could see if it helped. He also was compassionate and concerned about problems with grief I mentioned and suggested that counselling might help. I felt Dr. Matz went "above & beyond" his duty as a physician and would recommend him highly.

Had to wait 55 minutes past appt. time to see provider

Dr. Matz is covering for [...]. Dr. Matz has been excellent at filling in for her. The office is the best. I write them and give them an update on my health and the office staff that takes care of messages is the Best!!!

Professional, articulate and very willing to thoroughly explain his thoughts and actions for your care.

Sorry Dr. Matz will be retiring. He is a very good doctor.

This caregiver made me feel comfortable during a traumatic experience - I had a TIA & was confused & scared - he helped with referrals, tests & explaining results.

Haven't had to wait long.

I initially came in to Urgent care and told there would be a wait. There were only 1 or 2 people in front of me at that time. Later I was sent up to see Dr. Matz. My total wait time turned in to 2 hours.

Dr. MATZ was very thorough, gave me a good pep talk about smoking and is very personable. I have seen him years ago and still highly respect him. I would gladly see him if my primary care physician [...] is not available

I appreciate Dr. Matz for seeing me when my usual provider was out of the office. I think that he listened to me and made appropriate recommendations based on my individual needs.

Dr. Matz has kept me alive for 10 years. I trust him implicitly. Thru him, I have learned not to self diagnose myself.

not my regular doctor, he didn't seem to care about me or helping me with my issues that I was having at that time. will not see this provider again.

I have been going to DR Matz since he has been in Medford.

I think scheduling 10 minutes for an office visit creates stress for the patient and does not allow enough time for a thorough exchange of necessary information nor allow time for questions.

Dr. Matz is an excellent Doctor with exceptional bed side manner.

Dr. Matz is the best!

I needed to get help and they got me into a doctor as soon as possible. I was very thankful for Dr.Matz' help.

Dr. Matz is an excellent doctor. He diagnoses very accurately and recommends the right care or medicine.

Dr. Matz acts as if I am making up my symptoms. He referred me to another doctor and I ended up going to the fourth doctor before I got help. Now I feel like a normal human being again.

Dr. Matz was very clear with me today. He explained my labs and he looked up information that i had questions about...he had to go back in my records. He is quick and listened to my early health issues which may or may not be problematic at this time. i still have many questions...and look forward to getting all of my questions answered so I am better able to get better and be in better health.

Dr. Matz has been my family doctor for over 20 years. He is as good as they come.

I am extremely pleased with Dr. Matz. He always explains things in a way that I totally understand what he is telling me. He is caring and compassionate.

You guys ROCK!

Only downside was time it took to get test results (3 days) [...]

This was an urgent care visit for an ear infection. My primary DR could not get me in for several days and I felt this could not wait that long. [...] The staff were very sweet and Dr Matz was really great. I got antibiotics and was on my way. This was my first ever experience with urgent care so I didn't know what to expect. The wait time was horrible but all else was great. The new Stewart facility is beautiful.

The office did not bill my insurance by mistake, took me an hour to attempt to correct.They incorrectly did not categorize my visit as a wellness annual checkup so my insurance did not cover. I am still attempting to get this corrected to no success.other than these two very. hallenging issues I am very impressed with the new facility and Dr. Matz's assistants.Thank you, [...]
