Dr. Matthew Davis MDThe Doctors Have A Stopwatch Attitude
Although I’ve been a patient for Dr. Matthew Davis for approximately four years, I don’t always visit him.
However, he refused to listen to my concerns even though I had gone. I felt like I was back in Kaiser, where doctors are a stopwatch.
He used to take me to my bi-annual physical. But he began charging $99 more than the $25 co-pay.
My first concern was kidney stones. He couldn’t help me and referred me to a specialist.
You can read the review. It was a great referral…
Then, he ordered labs the last time I visited him for continuing dermatological concerns.
I’m not sure why he would order many STD tests, HIV/AIDS and Hep.
This was something I asked because I knew I was harmful to them since I am chaste.
However, the tests considered ‘useful’ did not prove as helpful.
My dermatologist wanted to see the labs when I visited her (separate evaluation).
They faxed the request to him using her stationery. I wait… she arrives about 10 minutes later… I was stunned when she sent me a fax with the results.
It had my last name is written and the doctor’s stamp in the middle.
I dialed my cell phone to call, and I went on about the guy who answered the phone.
I thought I was a king of a$$, but the fax machine rang thirty seconds later, and she arrived with several pages of laboratory results.
I talked about usefulness. I’m not a doctor, nor do I know what most of these results mean.
However, I can tell you that she stated they were ineffective and unrelated to my concern. She ordered another set of labs.
Sorry, I got off on a secant. So when the labs arrived, they told me to come into the office to make an appointment.
So I took a day off from work and raced to the office to get the appointment they gave me.
Traffic caused me to arrive 15 minutes late. They didn’t know why they were there when I checked in.
The girl went back to the front and got the results. It was the original page that I had received in the mail.
This confirmed everything as usual and gave me the option to keep my appointment.
She then hands me the paper, proudly announcing that she has saved me $25 on my co-pay.
I was curious, what’s the deal? She went back to Dr. Davis, and he returned with the report.
He says that you are healthier than him.
Enjoy a pleasant evening. After leaving work at 6:45 am, I rush to get there and fight traffic; I get the same piece of paper that I was holding.
There was nothing to be done about my concerns or the tests.

Not once was his interpretation of issues or his conclusions incorrect.
Dr. Davis is a three-star physician, a great listener, and a genuinely phenomenal “Dr. House” with no quirks or inappropriateness. Although he was my father’s doctor, he was also my mother’s doctor for more than 14 years. His attention to detail, compassion, understanding, and follow-up was top-notch. This man is a true gentleman.
His interpretations and conclusions were correct every time. His expertise and care have added many years to my mother’s life. In a world that seems to be losing its soul, he is also ethical.
Is it necessary to wait until you see him? He is pretty skippy most of the day. He’s a tireless worker and doesn’t waste time on his patients. The insurance companies now determine the physician’s workloads. Dr. Davis is the man I trust with my life.
