Matthew Breeze, M.D., believes in approaching his patients with humility, respect and empathy. “To me, the most important elements of the physician – patient relationship are communication, mutual understanding and trust,” he says. “I want to develop treatment plans that fit best for the individual within the context of their social and family circumstances.”

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Matthew Breeze was kind, seemed to really be listening to what I had to say, and was thinking about preventative things I could do to stay healthy. He was not rushed and was honest in his responses to my questions.

I was a patient of Dr. [...]'s, (and my experience with both her and Dr. [...] have also been top-notch [...]) and this was my first visit with Dr. Breeze. I have a lot of anxiety when meeting with someone new, particularly those who have the capacity to affect my life in a negative way. However, meeting Dr. Breeze (who I incidentally saw again today, and still have the same impression I did on my first visit.) was a very good one that felt as comfortable (ie: able to trust ) as my connections with my other two PCP's.
