Outside the Office

Dr. Matt is a true believer in the principles of nature and aligning the mind/body with those principles. When he’s not sticking needles in people, Dr. Matt loves spending time in the woods, reading Kurt Vonnegut, and wondering why he tortures himself rooting for the Islanders, Mets & Jets.
