"Dr Mather is amazing. He was patient answering all our questions. Very nice and I would highly recommend Dr Mather. Dr Mather said I have bursitis of the right and instead of sending me to a hip specialist he treated me right away in the room. I was in severe pain for over 6 months. Dr Mather was great. I can't thank him enough. I haven't felt this good in so long."
