Testimonials

Martin is a great manager and colleague whom I have worked with in the field of integrative medicine. He is always staying on the cutting edge of technology and best protocols when running his functional medicine practice. As a physician, I am relying more and more upon functional medicine as a specialty and I consult often with Dr. Martin for advice on my own family’s medical care. Thank you Dr Martin for being you and for caring for us!

When I first came in to meet Dr. Matiscik at the Optum Health Center for my initial visit, I honestly had no quality of life. I wasn’t sleeping, my hot flashes were out of control & I just felt “off”. I reached out to many doctors of different specialties to seek relief but to no avail. I was miserable, it was starting to effect my family life & my marriage. For approximately ten years, I just thought this was what happens to woman in their 40’s.

Dr. Matiscik ran a panel of tests & after he analyzed the results, I began the protocol to get my life back….the life that used to be my normal.

It was a subtle process but as the weeks passed, I began noticing that I was sleeping through the night & they were good quality sleeps. Then came NO hot flashes. All of a sudden, I noticed one week without them
then there was a month without them. I NO longer have any hot flashes!! As for feeling “off”, I began remembering things that I used to forget. I felt alert throughout the day instead of crashing around 3pm daily. The best part of the program is that I toned up losing that stagnant belly that I just thought was part of turning 40.

I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Matiscik & Optum Health Center. He & his staff were so outgoing & were willing to take the time with me, answering all my questions throughout my process. I will most definitely recommend Optum Health Center to all my friends & family.

My stomach had been ‘bothering’ me on-and-off for at least a year and my primary physician had diagnosed it as ‘stress related’, a byproduct of life (job, children, etc.). A friend casually referenced Dr. Matiscik and his practice, so in time, I reached out to him to discuss my issues. Dr. Matiscik was very knowledgeable with the functioning of the gut and how my symptoms were a direct result of my gut health. Dr. Matiscik administered a few tests and with the results began a program to improve my gut health. After a number weeks on my individually tailored program, my stomach issues improved, and with Dr. Matiscik’s continued attention during the subsequent couple months during which he recommended vitamins and explained how to incorporate the right foods in order to maintain my gut health, I no longer have ‘stress related’ stomach issues (despite the byproducts of my life remaining a constant).
Thank you Dr. Matiscik !

I’ve dealt with IBS, food sensitivities, acid reflux, joint pain, and mouth sores due to chronic stress over the last ten years of my life. Dr. Matiscik is one of the first and only practitioners to show genuine interest in my health problems and help me find a way out of chronic infections, brain fog, and fatigue. Dr. Matiscik took the time to discuss my health issues, and listened to my concerns. He took into account existing test results and diagnoses, then ordered additional tests (urine, saliva, and stool) that helped us gain insight into other imbalances in my body such as adrenal fatigue and candida overgrowth.

Dr. Matiscik recommend and outlined a course of treatment that was easy for me to stick to since I had already made dietary and lifestyle changes in an effort to heal my body. Dr. Matiscik’s treatment protocol has left me feeling more energized, and more like my old self. I finally have the stamina and energy to exercise regularly, which is a big accomplishment because I haven’t been able to stick with exercise
for several years due to fatigue and chronic infections. I highly recommend Dr. Matiscik. He’s extremely patient, and took the time to follow up with me regularly. I finally feel like my health is a priority and I’m no longer slipping through the cracks, and that we got to the root of my health problems.

I had been suffering with ulcerative colitis for over 10 years. I had severe health problems and it was impossible to live a normal life, maintaining a work schedule and social life with my frequent gastrointestinal symptoms.

After extensive use of conventional medicines with many side-effects and no real improvement I was desperate to try out another treatment.

I was referred to Dr. Matiscik who did an in depth consultation (helistened to me and took time other practitioners did not seem to have). He ordered several tests and began a protocol of supplements and dietary changes. I noticed relief in only a few months, which continued to improve with time. Since I started with Dr. Matiscik nearly 8 months ago, I am symptom free ! There is no blood issue any more and my
bowel movements are back to normal frequency. Recent blood works at my doctor’s office also confirmed there is no inflammation left. It was so good to hear the words “everything looks normal”.

Thanks to Dr. Matiscik, I have regained control and can live a normal life again. I hope many more will find this wonderful help and become as happy as I am.

My doctors could not find anything wrong with me, even though I felt tired and irritable all the time. They tried to put me on anti depressive medication because I always complained I did not feel like myself.Then I went to Dr. Matiscik. He tested my hormones, as well as other systems of my body he said can cause hormonal problems. My estrogen was high and my progesterone were low. I also had a gastrointestinal infection and liver detoxification issues. Dr. Matiscik started me off handling the GI infection and then the liver detoxification problems. Within weeks, I started noticing less brain fog and fatigue.
Oh yes….. my stubborn belly fat also started to melt away

I am sleeping great and my mood swings and irritability are also gone. I am not yet done with the program he set up for me…. but, I look forward to the final product ! My future looks so different.
Tell everyone I know to see Dr. Matiscik”
