Biography & Education

Biography

Physician Assistant Matthew Pyrch was inspired by his grandfather to pursue a career in health care. “He was a general practice physician, and I loved hearing his stories about providing care to his community and seeing his satisfaction he got from helping his neighbors and patients.”

Matthew emphasizes preventive medicine and shared decision-making. “A good history can be as helpful as any diagnostic test,” he says. “Getting to know patients is important to me — working with them over time to help them achieve their health goals.” He says he strives to “help my patients manage their acute and chronic health concerns and to navigate the increasingly complex health care system.”

Matthew earned his Master of Health Science degree from Duke University. He completed his undergraduate degree in biology and environmental science from Santa Clara University. His specialty is in internal medicine.

When he’s not working, Matthew enjoys spending time with his family, being outdoors, hiking, fishing and biking.

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.

The people at the desk were great and I got into see Matthew within 10 minutes. He was great. I have had to see him several times when the problem was urgent but [...] was not available that day.

[...] Matthew listened carefully to my individual situation and assisted ME in solving it, instead of just solving it without my input. I have seen Matthew twice over the last few years, and have been extremely happy with him both times!

My care provider is [...], who I think is perfect and quite wonderful. When I went in for my annual wellness exam, I was given a PA who had no knowledge of my history or care. He definitely tried to be helpful, but was not able to keep up with my history and questions. I have always been very satisfied with my treatment in the office and loved the staff. A lot of my contact with my doc is on line and she is very good about answering my questions. I would be very unhappy if I had to see that PA rather than my internest when I come again. Sorry, he tried.

The only issue I have is that the waiting room shares the urgent care waiting room, and I always feel that I'm walking into an aquarium filled with germs. Also, the patient exam rooms are kind of small.
