  • “Matt was the definition of professional. He was friendly, easy going and everyone really enjoyed him. He sat and had dinner with our board president and some other local physicians. Prior to his performance and throughout the evening he allowed for interruptions for photos and questions and once finished he continued to stick around to talk everyone.”
