Dr. Certain and his staff are wonderful to deal with.
This provider did not show an interest or concern in providing solutions for my symptoms. Did not check my vitals until the very end of my appointment when I mentioned it. Seemed to be more focused on the fact that I switched from another local cardiologist for a second opinion and treatment. He did come highly recommended and I had high hopes on this appointment but he showed no concern.
First time visit. I feel confident that I have a good health care provider.
Dr. Certain took his time to explain my condition. I never felt rushed. He was running a bit behind only because of an emergency procedure. He apologized multiple times ( although I reassured him it was out of his control.) He has wonderful bedside manner and makes each patient feel like such a priority. I would recommend him 1,000%!!
Dr Certain is very attentive and respectful.

Experience was fine
I was trying to establish a relationship with a cardiologist in this area. Dr. Certain asked me what I thought were the pertinent questions and clearly answered my questions.
Keep up Good Work
This was an initial visit to establish connection with a new cardiologist closer to where I live. I was very pleased & impressed.
Great Dr Mathew . Enjoy my visit
Dr Certain was excellent and answered all of my questions.
I believe Dr. Mathew Certain is a medical genius
Questions answered, smooth visit
I was there for a stress test. Dr. Certain was monitoring the test the entire time. He gave me instant results, which I appreciated very much.
This is the first negative review I've ever given any physician. However, Matthew Certain has no bedside manner. He treated me like a number or an item on an assembly line. I don't believe he looked into my background before my arrival, nor did he look into my situation while I was at the visit. He wanted me in and out. I was given some concerning news and he could have cared less. I will not be returning to this practice.
Exemplary service. If only every doctor and team could be so considerate and helpful.
Always excellent service!
I believe in this Doctor. I feel that I made a right choice in picking this Doctor.
Doctor Certain always has done what's best for me and my health
Dr Certain very helpful. Answer all my questions.he is a compassionate person.
Dr.certain left me waiting an hour for him to do treadmill test. I had other appointments an hour away which is how far I drive to use this Doctor so I left. Refusal of careapparently because my time is important too
New patient so no previous experience with this doctor. I think the future relationship will be a good one.
Dr Was informative regarding my health and set up cardiac rehab and recommended added meds yo help my condution
He sees like a very good Doctor, he explain things very well and answered my question,
Dr. Certain was very rude and condescending. He made me to feel like I was an idiot and a hypochondriac because I wanted to get a second opinion about the health of my heart. He made a comment to me and then tried to go back and retract his statement to make it seem like he didn't mean to say it in a negative way. He did not have access to my medical records from my regular cardiologist, but he did have access to my medical records within the health system. I didn't think it was a crime to get a second opinion about your health, but he made it seemed like I was trying to downplay my cardiologist when I was trying to get to the root of my problem, which I got nowhere. I pray I never need a heart cath, stent placement, or open heart surgery, but if ever I do, I don't want him involved in my care. I only went to him for a second opinion for my heart because a dear friend of mine spoke highly of him, but I was disappointed. I walked out of the appointment because I could no longer tolerate his condescending attitude. There was nothing he did for me in that appointment besides belittle me, and I feel like I really shouldn't be charged for this visit. The visit was a waste of my time and money, and had I known he was that rude and condescending, I definitely would have chosen another cardiologist.
Dr. Certain was excellent. My first appointment with him and I was very satisfied.
I was given a stress test and my blood results were reviewed. Dr. Certain was very happy with the results of both. I have been seeing Dr. Certain for 6 years (since I moved to Brunswick) and am very Happy with the care I have been given.
Dr. Matthew is always attentive to my concerns. He follows up on the initial reason for starting his care. He explains things in a down to earth manner.
Dr. Certain takes his time with you. He explains everything, fully. He makes you feel comfortable and his manner is calming.
Very professional, seemed to be caring and knowledgeable about my needs and concerns. Prompt and friendly.
