Worst Mistake Ever - Chicago, IL

I'm not sure I believe these reviews after what he did to me. And I'm clearly not the only one. He was supposed to fix my nose, but instead he literally took off half of it. I hope that even one person will see this will go in a different direction or find another doctor. Most unprofessional bs I've ever dealt with

New Year, New Me - Knoxville, TN

As a young woman, it often bothered me that I developed what I considered to be premature wrinkling of my face. At the beginning of 2015, I finally decided to take action. After speaking with a few friends and colleagues about their experience with Botox injections and researching on my own, I decided to seek consultation from Dr. C. Mathison. During the office visit, Dr. Mathison took the time to fully explain the benefits of Botox injections as well as the risks, including the possibility that the injections wouldn't completely resolve my wrinkled skin. This alone was important to me and allowed me to see that Dr. Mathison truly considers his patients concerns/wishes and offers honest opinions and solutions without making promises about procedure outcomes. I'm completely satisfied with my results from this procedure and the confidence it has given me. I highly recommend Dr. Mathison to anyone seeking guidance with facial cosmetic procedures. Dr. Mathison is very knowledgable and professional. In my experience, he is one of few doctors/surgeons that will set aside as much time as needed for the patient to fully understand the intended procedure, as well as its risks and benefits. He is genuinely concerned about the outcome of the procedure and patient satisfaction--great quality to possess when dealing with the main focus of one's appearance.

5 out of 5 stars Sinus Surgery

My experience was excellent

My daughter recommended Dr.Mathison to me originally for sinus issues. He is a very caring and skilled surgeon. He performed my second sinus surgery fixing the issues from my first surgery. It was the easiest recovery of any surgery I have ever had. He checked on me a few days post op before I even returned for my follow up visit. After several months I decided to have Botox treatment as well....

5 out of 5 stars Botox

I had an outstanding experience

Dr. Mathison is efficient, professional, thorough and all around fantastic. I requested Botox for the first time, he educated me then walked me through the entire procedure. The results were amazing, I immediately recommended him to someone else who had an equally impressive experience. I will continue to see him and him only.

5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery

I had a great experience.

Dr. Mathison did a wonderful job repairing facial damage from an accident. One can hardly tell I had surgery and I owe it all to him and his technique. He explained things so well and is easy to talk to.

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Very thorough and knowledgeable. A hidden gem!

I am currently four days post op after having upper blepharoplasty, septo/rhinoplasty, and a mini face-lift. I can't say how the results will turn out yet since I'm still recovering and quite swollen, but I have been very pleased with Dr. Mathison thus far. He spent more time than any other doctor (I interviewed three) reviewing my case and answering my many questions. He thoroughly analyzed...
