Attentive professional, with very good manner.

   — David Caldwell


A very caring and skilled Dr. and Surgeon with a helpful and caring staff. Use Vallet parking.

   — Laurence Looker


My family and I have been treated by Dr. Coons for more than 20 years, and have known him even longer. We appreciate his studied approach to diagnosing any hand issues that have come up for us. Most importantly, he avoids suggesting unnecessary procedures. You won't find that in many surgeons. With Matt, you can be sure your hands are in the right hands.

   — Frank Higgins


As always the hospitality and professionalism of all concerned was exemplary. I look forward to my next visit.

Dr. Coons and staff are very professional and kind. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Coons, he is very thoughtful and addresses my concerns.

This is my second time seeing Dr. Coons. I love how he takes time to go through every possible scenario, rather than just a quick fix or the most expensive option. Rah - Aug 2022
