In the late 1990's, Dr. Matlick developed some complex disc disease of his lower
spine that was aggravated by the various positions required to perform surgery.
So as to protect his own health, and with respect for his family responsibilities,
the Doctor opted to abandon his Surgical practice in favor of the part-time practice
of Medical Otolaryngology. Since that time he's been providing office-based
consultations and minor office diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Dr. Matlick's particular interests in his field include headache, ear care and hearing preservation, geriatric Ear, Nose, and Throat care, and the evaluation and treatment of vertigo.
In addition to his office responsibilities, Dr. Matlick has been a clinical instructor
at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and has participated
in teaching Head and Neck Anatomy to first year medical students for the past
Outside of the office the Doctor likes to remain active in the community when he's
able. He's been involved in Scouting, has volunteered in the local school system, and
also remains active on the teaching, and receiving end of Continuing Medical Education.
Further outside of the office, Dr. Matlick has found a niche as an advanced amateur
photographer, and avid gardener and bonsai artist. During your visit, don't hesitate
to strike up a conversation about "the current state of Medicine", or on a lighter note,
ask about the Doctor's collections, which include hand-blown glass spheres (art glass
marbles), and whimsical birdhouses, many of which he creates himself.
