Welcome Lutheran Living’s Medical Director



Lutheran Living is proud and excited to announce our new Medical Director, Stanley J. Mathew, Physiatrist, Medical Director of St. Lukes & Finley Hospital Physical Medicine Rehabilitation!

Stan is a native New Yorker and joined the St. Luke’s Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) medical team in October of 2009.

He completed his Internship in the department of Internal Medicine at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY in 2006. Stan then specialized in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and completed his post graduate education at New York Medical College, where he served as chief resident in his final year.

He holds Boards Certifications from the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, American Board of Disability Analysts, and the American Board of Pain Medicine.

Stan medical interests include pain management, spine and musculoskeletal medicine, spasticity management, electro diagnostics, pre/post-operative management of orthopedic and neurosurgical conditions.

Stan adds, “Humans are too complex to relegate diagnosis and treatment solely to ‘processes.’ Great physicians always apply an artist’s sensibility. Diagnosis requires an artist’s eye, a writer’s ear for dialogue, and a sense of composition.”
