Best Doctor and Nurse I have ever had. He has been my doctor for over 23 years

No issues with Dr. Matsuura or his assistant [...]

The best physician, staff and office I see. Very professional, very kind, caring but efficient. My favorite team. [...]

Great doctor and a caring person.

I am ALWAYS very pleased with the care I receive from Dr. Matsuura........he's very easy to talk to and always answers questions I may have, AND listens to whatever comments I may make. My husband and I were referred to Dr. Matsuura by our former primary doctor of 30+ years......Dr. [...] (retired, and with whom we had an EXCELLENT relationship).......I have to admit I didn't think I'd be able to have the same doctor-patient relationship with a new primary doctor, but in the short time we've been seeing Dr. Matsuura he has definitely put that thought to rest!! His assistant [...] is also to be commended for being very professional, yet at the same time she treats us as though we're personal friends!!!!

I had a very difficult time getting an appointment with my primary care physician. I have a bleeding sore on my face that is likely cancer, but I could not convince the appointment desk that I needed an appointment soon. It was not until I typed a desperate note on the website that anyone paid attention to my request.

Dr. Matsuura has always provided great medical care & service. That is why he's been my primary care doctor for over 20+ years.

Very Satisfied

Too hard to get an appt. when 1st appt. was cancelled, appt. desk never called back.

Always a pleasant experience!

1) Once i'm in the office, i'm treated very well, but [...] it's difficult to get in on short notice. 2) i'd prefer the test results to be shown as they were years ago, where they were shown on one page, and i could print a couple pages for the full report, and understand more clearly my results. Now i have a difficult time understanding what is what, and there's many different tests where i'm not sure if i'm okay or not.

I love Dr. Matsuura and [...] is a gem. I HATE the fact that it is so difficult to get an appointment with him when I am sick.

[...] got me in to see Dr. Matsuura in the morning instead of me waiting for my appointment in the afternoon I had made my appointment on my chart that morning and the only opening with any Dr was in the afternoon with pDr. Matsuura so I took it but called the office at 8:00 am to see if there was any Cancellations in the morning and [...] said no so 20 mins later [...] called me back and put me in the morning to see the Dr. , [...] is Amazing and caring person to call me with out me asking him too.Dr. Matsuura is very nice & professional

Very good overall

my concern, is that I had blood tests but never got any results yet? It has already been about two weeks from when I had my appointment. I should get them sooner than this.

found the care provider was attentive and respondent to questions.

VERY long wait time (~60 minutes) for my most recent appointment

It takes a while to get a routine physical examination appointment.

Over the many years with this provider, I have never had a bad experience.

keep up the good work

Dr Stacey Matsuura has provided EXCELLENT care for me and my family (including extended family) for decades. We trust him immensely. [...], his nurse, has been assisting us for many years and provides outstanding service and care. We would like to be able to reach Dr. Matsurra and [...] more easily. At times, we seem to have trouble getting through to them upon our first try. The front office holds us up at times. We have been patients for decades and do not feel like the front office treats us as such.

Recently asked provider to share my bloodwork with my cardiologist [not in Providence network]. Nurse did so but said I would have to print out and take care of myself in the future. I love "MyChart", digital medical files, etc but there should be a way to easily share something as basic as blood test results [PDF file, etc]. Asking patient to do it is not the best answer

Dr. Matsuura takes the time to listen and address all issues we discussed.

I didn't have an appointment and I was very sick. Urgent Care next door to my Dr had an hour wait. Dr. Matsuura agreed to see me with 20 minutes. Dr. Matsuura and his nurse [...] always provide me with the best care.

Dr. Matsuura has been my physician for over 25yrs. He's the best in every way. My children feel the same way.

Dr. Matsuura is always concerned about my will being.

very caring doctor and medical assistant so resouceful, happy personallity, and informative. [...] is do good at her job I always have no problem with the visits. She takes blood with great expertise and I get so many blood tests snd she makes it effortless and no pain!

Dr. Matsuura has been my doctor for over 30 years so that has to attest to the confidence I have in him. [...], his assistant, has always demonstrated the utmost of patient quality care and professionalism.

Excellent providers in all aspects!!! Very professional.

Dr. Matsura always takes time with his patients. He is a down-to-earth physician.

The communication between the CPC and the specialists, cardiologist and gastro specialist could be better.

Dr. Matsuura is an excellent doctor and his nurse [...] is very friendly.

Medical test are usually posted to the website the same or the next day. If I have questions or concerns I will email those and I will be given a follow up phone call.

My husband and I are fairly new to Dr. Matsuura and we have found him to be very professional and very caring and concerned. We totally enjoy having him as our Primary Doctor!

I arrived 15 minutes before my 8:00am appointment. An urgent care walk in who arrived after me was seen before me. Total time I spent from arrival to end of appointment was 1:15.

Dr. Matsuura is OUTSTANDING! I had hoped to get in a few days earlier, but it was relatively short notice before going on travel. In the end, he was able to shuffle his time a bit to squeeze me in for the rather minor (but important) action needed.

my experience was very good

Provider is very nice and patient. Takes the time to go over my history and listens to any questions I may ask.

Dr. Matsuura and his staff have always been excellent.......I highly recommend him...... [...]

Dr Matsuura and his office are a wonderful team!

I have been a patient of Dr. Matsuura for probably more than 20 years now; so he knows my medical history quite well. He is easy to communicate with, and easy to understand.

Dr. Matsuura seems very bright and is very caring for my concerns. I always enjoy interacting with him and I admire his quick wit and his ability to analyze facts rapidly and formulate a cogent and understandable response. I also enjoy his dry sense of humor coupled with what seems like a very positive outlook on medical challenges. My only concern is that, on occasion, he speaks so fast that I fear I am missing some of what he is saying. I look forward to continuing as his patient.

Hard to get an appointment because he is so busy.

Always courteous, compassionate and helpful with any medical problems.

I am always surprised and grateful for the amount of time Dr. Matsuura spends with me. He never seems in a rush to leave, listens attentively, and answers questions in detail. He's great!

Dr. Mastuura is always very helpful and very very courteous.

everyone at the Drs. office were very nice and helpful.

Dr. Matsuura is always competent. His male nurse who did the testing was a problem. In changing the paper on the table I noted that the pillow also needed a changed. He says trust clean. Later in a test I said I did not want to touch it. He then proceed to toss. it across the room . it hits the wall and falls to the floor. After the tests and shot he says to get dress and meet him outside. After dressing and leaving the exam room, I see he left the needle on the exam bed. I told him he left the needle on the bed. No comment from him. He was a nurse that I had not seen before. I did not tell the dr. because I did not want him to lose his job but upon telling others, including my husband he said someone like that should not be near a patient.

Able to get me in on short notice before travel.

Was not completely satisfied with this visit. Over half hour wait and prescriptions were not available as promised until multiple phone calls were made.

always excellent service

Dr Matsuura is wonderful, that's why I travel over 25 miles to keep him as my primary care doctor.

dr Matsuura is a very good Dr.

Dr. Matsuura, [...] and the office staff are always very professional and courteous!!

all staff members were very professional at their jobs

Dr. Matsuura is thorough, attentive and listens to you in spite of the demands of EMR during the visit.

Matsuura is an excellent physician and I have referred many friends, etc. & will continue to do so!

[...] extremely difficult to find available day and time for appointment with a physician.

Dr. Stacey Matsuura is the finest doctor I have ever experienced. He is intelligent, thorough, compassionate, and humble.

Dr Matsuura is an excellent, caring, physician. I chose him as my PCP as a result of a recommendation from a good friend. I have recommended his services to others including my wife, who will be contacting him to become her PCP

Dr. Matsuura is wonderful! He listens to me, gives feedback, and is very knowledgeable. I always enjoy seeing him and feel like I am in "good hands"! Thank you Dr. Matsuura for providing me with excellent health care over the years! I really appreciate you.

I had trouble getting the doctors approval for buying CPAP supplies from my supply provider.

Nothing but wonderful services and friendly staff!
