    Dr. Ravish was excellent! He was very patient with our wild four year-old boy, and extremely thorough. We left feeling very informed, educated, and in 'the know'. He took the time to answer all of our questions and was extremely loving with our child.

  • 7/18/2018

    very personable

  • 7/2/2018

    Dr. Ravish does what he does very well. Not only a great doctor, but he is a great person. Look forward to recommending him to anyone who needs his care.

  • 5/30/2018

    could care less about the patient. pointed out several medical issues that need to be addressed but did not include them in notes or discuss with PCP. in and out like always, only addressing one issue and does not address issues about pain, etc. We will not go back since this has been happening at every appointment with this provider. My child is more than a dollar sign...

  • 4/25/2018

    I was very impressed with Dr. Ravish.

  • 4/6/2018

    Laid back personality, which was very relieving when dealing with a mom and two wild (patient & brother) boys. He treated me and my son with respect and was great with my son.

  • 2/24/2018

    He was very nice, very down to earth, good w/my 3 year old. Seemed to know exactly what he was talking about & gave us different options on her best treatment.

  • 2/21/2018

    Awesome bedside manner and personality - Instilled confidence in medical decisions for our daughter - Very knowledgeable.

  • 1/17/2018

    I think I answered this in a previous box but like I said earlier. Dr. Ravish is great. My daughter has a Rare Genetic disorder called Sotos Syndrome and she has Autistic traits causing her to be very anxious about going to the doctor. She does not cry or throw a fit about seeing Dr. Ravish. She feels comfortable and trust him. For this Mom that is priceless.

    Dr. Ravish was awesome. I was very pleased with the level of care my daughter received. He had very little information on my daughters case due to the hospital she was being seen at not sending all of the information but he listened and paid attention to everything I told him about my daughters case and knew exactly where to start. He did an awesome job making not only us but my 9 month old feel very comfortable. He explained everything very clearly and detailed. the X-ray staff and nurses were also amazing. Very warm and welcoming. I am very very pleased with our experience with Dr. Matthew Ravish and the rest of the staff in the pediatric orthopedics department.
