very good.


At one point in my care while in the office. I was asking her about my treatment while she already had made a decision about the plan of care at this visit. I like to be told about any treatment before it's exercised on me. Any patient deserves that respect.


Very empathic, professional and kind!


Dr. Matthews is a very professional and caring doctor. From my initial appointment for diagnosis, through surgery, and during post-op visits, Dr. Matthews always listened to questions and provided explanations that helped me understand my condition and options for correcting my problem. During surgery and all visits, she made me feel at ease. Since meeting her for the first appointment, I have shared my experiences with Dr. Matthews with friends and family. I feel very fortunate to have had Dr. Matthews as my surgeon.


I was very pleased with *Dr. Matthews, she was very courteous and helpful with the problems I was seeing her for. I would highly recommend her.


It I could give Dr. Matthews an A plus, plus, I would. She is marvelous.


Catherine Ann Matthews,MD is the most compassionate physician that I have ever visited. She seems so competent and dedicated to helping me. I feel fortunate to be her patient!


Dr. Matthews and staff were kind and considerate.


I would give Dr. Matthews a "15" if I could. She is an excellent clinician. I asked her a question that another MD couldn't answer, and Dr Matthews knew the answer and explained the phenomenon to me. That was the second time Dr Matthews exceeded all previous physicians. This text entry will not let me scroll up to proof read my entry, so please excuse all errors.


There is not a Doctor that I would trust more than Dr. Catherine Matthews! She is superb!


Dr. Matthews is awesome!


She was really concerned about my problem.


I have total confidence in this provider.


I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Mathews. From my first contact with her to my most recent 1-year follow-up visit after surgery, she has exhibited exemplary care as a physician/surgeon. All of her clinic's staff have done the same each time I have been at the office. Frankly, it is amazing and such a breath of fresh air from the customer service (or more accurately, the lack of) from most any health care provider in Danville, Virginia.


I have never had a doctor ask me "Is okay if I examine you?" and then thanked me for letting her examine me!


Dr Matthews is the BEST


She is very good! I don't remember she treated this for my no 2 problem in the past so.


I was totally satisfied and impressed with this provider. It was my first visit and I will continue to have her as my urologist. She was especially knowledgeable concerning my condition and gave me valuable information and advice on handling the problem. She was very patient, courteous and professional. She performed her expertise in this field just as I expect and have received from Wake Forest Baptist Doctors.


What a breath of fresh air! After being treated horribly at another practice, it was so refreshing to work with Dr Matthews. She never made me feel stupid for asking questions and she was incredibly respectful. I was very pleased with the care I received.


Personable, efficient, courteous, good listener for most part.


Doctor's schedule was packed.


All good


Dr. Matthews is TOP NOTCH I have been singing her praises to EVERYONE! I previously saw another doctor at this same practice and have NOTHING good to say about that doctor. Dr. Matthews not only heard me, she listened to what I saw saying. She clearly and consistently stated what she believed the problem to be, and advised that I needed an MRI, that my problems were likely related to my back issues. At a follow up visit Dr. Matthews saw the MRI results, and asked when I would see the neurosurgeon Dr. Branch. When she found out I was waiting to see which ever doctor could work me in, she contacted Dr. Branch's office... long story short I was having back surgery within a matter of weeks. Had I not had the surgery, I would have lost control of my bladder, bowels, and legs. Because of Dr. Matthews, my quality of life is already dramatically improved and I will be forever grateful!


dr Matthews is a very caring and comforting physician which lowers anxiety level


Dr. Matthews is excellent and went above and beyond for me, and gave me confidence that we could tackle my medical issues.


Friendly and knowledgeable and instilled confidence in her.


very pleased


Love *Dr. Matthews.


Excellent provider! The best!




I was most impressed with her listening skills, knowledge of medical issues presented and willingness to consider various treatment options. In hindsight, I thought an actual physical exam would have given her personal knowledge of me and also indicated a personal interest in me as her patient.


I've been holding her name for six years. I should have called sooner.


Dr. Matthews has given me hope that I will be able to live a normal life. Until my visit I had given up hope ever being able to go hiking or exercising like a normal person. It was life changing!


I had a good experience.


Extremely liked this provider and would refer anyone to her. She was very professional, easy to talk to and listened with ease of my concerns and she also had a great bedside manner and sense of humor which made me feel comfortable and at ease.


*Dr. Matthews is an exceptional practitioner and provided excellent quality care. She is very informative, kind & compassionate and demonstrates professionalism in all areas.


Dr. Matthews is very kind and overall amazing!!!


My experience with Dr. Matthews was excellent. What a pleasure to see a physician who cares and looks you in the eyes while discussing issues.


Dr. Matthews is the BEST doctor I have ever seen.


Dr. Matthews is wonderful. She goes the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and will help you in any way possible that she can. I would recommend her to everyone I know.


Really felt cared for!


finally someone who knew what she was doing and helped.
