great doctor

Dr. Mathier is one of the best doctors I have ever had. He is always kind, compassionate, concerned, and most important, knowledgeable. I have appreciated him so much over the years that he has treated me.

I'm satisfied with provider. I always have good experiences with this provider

Dr Mathier best drive met

I was really glad to have Dr Mathier and look forward to working with him in my health journey

I am thankful I have Dr. Mathier as a care provider. He is an excellent doctor who treats his patients with courtesy and respect.

I have been a patient of Dr. Mathier for the past 15 years. I trust him completely with overseeing my health [as I have a rare chronic condition], even more than I trust the judgment of my PCP.

The doctors and staff that work with Dr. Mathier are amazing people. Never been around such great providers. Thank You,

Dr Michael Mathier has such empathy and compassion for his patients. He takes the time to thoroughly explain every detail. I feel so incredibly blessed to be under his care! With heart disease often comes anxiety of the disease. He and his team address every single aspect of whole mind and body care, which completely reassures me. I recommend Dr Mathier to anyone lucky and blessed enough to be his patient! Very Grateful!

Excellent physician. Kind, compassionate. Working hard to figure out how to address my medical issues. Consulted other physicians prior to my visit in an effort to come up with an appropriate plan for my care going forward.

pleasant, competent

Dr. Mathier is one of the best physicians I have ever seen. I appreciate his concern, kindness, knowledge, expertise, and friendly disposition.

I was so pleased with my visit yesterday. My whole experience was great. the entire staff was so helpful and kind.

very good

Great professional service. Seen by Jenalso have seen Michael in the past also very professional and personable

Excellent doctor.....Took his time to explain everything and answered all my questions. He promised to consult with my other doctor on my course of treatment and he did that the same day. I have a lot of confidence in this doctor's skills and ability.

Dr Mathier is an excellent physician- always explains my heart condition in detail.

It is clear that Dr. Michael Mathier is a very caring and competent physician that is extremely professional with a unique "user friendliness" that makes one feel very comfortable and entrusting. I believe that Dr. Mathier not only listened to me but also really "heard" what I had to say and responded appropriately with advice, balanced push back, and direction of care. He answered all of my questions without once making me feel rushed or hurried. I trust him fully and feel a high comfort level that he is thinking through prescribing treatment(s) that are based on positive outcomes for me which I genuinely appreciate. He is an asset to UPMC and the cardiac patient population that he serves and I am not only happy to have him as my treating physician but attest to his skills and guidance without question.

good experiences

very impressed with this portion of my care for the FIRST time in a long time I am truly optimistic about my ongoing health

Dr. Mathier and his staff were great. I can't say enough how the experience was much more than I expected from a "typical" doctor visit. The nurses, P.A. and Dr. Mathier were all kind, respectful, easy to speak to and I felt as if they genuinely cared about my condition. There was an upbeat and warm feeling among the staff that is contagious.

Went in trying to be angry with provider because they blew my appt. off twice. But after meeting with him I changed my mind and have a great deal of respect for him

I really like Dr. Matthier. He is very knowledgeable, professional, he is also very caring and compassionate.

Very concerned for my health and willing to explore other options.

Dr. Mathier is like the rest of the care team I have for my heart. They are the BEST any one could ask for. I will stay with and ask for UPMC always, I couldn't be happier with my treatments and care. God Bless them ALL.

Excellent experience.

As I have had a heart condition since I was 32, at that time at heritage valley I was told if I made it 2 years I would be lucky, I am now 64, this is all because of the care from upmc and my doctors.

De Mathier spent as much time with me as I expect and explained my condition thoroughly in terms that I understand.

nurses and doctor were very pleasant and explained everything. time well spent. always come away from Dr Mathier's office with a positive attitude even though I have two very involved and serious disease. Grateful to have him

Dr Michael Mathier is a very knowledgeable and compassionate medical professional. He has been by my side for over 16 years providing medical treatment and coaching to successfully live a full life while surviving heart failure caused by chemo. His nurse Lisa is always available to respond to my questions. I feel Dr Mathier, his nurse and UPMC have my best interest in mind.

From scheduling to reception to check-up preliminaries with nurses/PA to actual visit with the doctor, the experience was first-rate. I have been going there for twenty years, first for treatments then for continued follow-up check-ups, and cannot remember a negative experience. they take care of me and do it professionally and respectfully.

my health has improved greatly since Dr Mathier has been treating me.

Always a good experience.

I felt the staff in general and Dr Mathier in particular were very interested, courteous, prepared, and caring. Dr Mathier always explains and reiterates his thought processes that brings him to the conclusions he has reached regarding my health. He asks for my input and listens attentively. He knows his area of medicine very well and is able to connect that with what is going on healthwise in my body. He is a gem and a definite asset to your hospital.

Dr Mathier is great. he explained things to that made perfect sense. I wished he nwas in Johnstown so he could be my regular doctor.

I've been to a lot of doctor's in the past and I'd like to say I've never felt more comfortable with any other doctor as I do with Dr. Mathier. He is the best doctor I've ever had.
