A Message From Dr. Mathew

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to learn more about my practice.  As a California native, I thought it would be difficult to leave.  However, as each stage of training moved me farther east, I am happy to find my home in the lovely state of Connecticut and to be able to do what I love.  Simply put, my practice philosophy is treating the whole person and doing what is in the best interest of the patient.  I understand that each individual is unique so it is important to take the time with each person to discuss their goals, and understand their strengths and challenges.  My approach is to provide compassionate and collaborative care, developing a personalized treatment plan that works specifically for you.  We will work together to explore mental, physical, and emotional health.  By limiting my practice size, I am able to take the time to understand the values and needs of each individual patient and provide highly personalized care.  Thank you for considering me as part of your treatment team and I look forward to hearing from you.
