I thank my lucky stars to be referred to Dr. Breeze. He is the best possible primary care provider one could ask for. He is knowledgeable, patient, thorough, caring, and a great human being. He has a unique sense of empathy for his patient, and does everything in his power to help. He listens carefully, and addresses every issue. He is a rarity in the time we live in. Could not ask for a better doctor.

Dr Breeze is the best. Only reason why I would not recommend him, is that it would be harder for me to get an appointment when he gets too busy with new patients. Just me being selfish. Matthew Breeze takes time with me, and listens, and asks questions. Just the best provider.

On the direction of a former MD, Dr. Breeze was reticent to prescribe Prednisone to help my breathing situation----but it was prescribed a week later by another doctor. Will discuss the importance of responding quickly to my respiratory issues in the future. Dr. Breeze is a wonderful doctor--and I appreciate all he has done for me.
