Craig A. Matticks, MD, FACEP

Emergency Medicine
I aim to investigate and provide recommendations on how patients should manage their health care concerns.


This provider is an independent provider, not an employee of North Memorial Health, who practices/provides services at some North Memorial Health locations.

Approach To Care

As a board-certified emergency physician, Dr. Matticks believes that his role is to investigate and provide recommendations on how patients should manage their health care concerns. He appreciates working with well-informed patients, but also understands his responsibility in meeting them where they are in terms of their own health literacy, history or access to information.


Dr. Matticks attended the University of Virginia School of Medicine and completed his formal training in Emergency Medicine at Hennepin County Medical Center. He has worked as an emergency physician since joining North Memorial Health Care in 1994.

Dr. Matticks is a Diplomat of the American Board of Emergency Medicine, most recently re-certified in 2015, and a fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians, the primary professional organization of emergency physicians.


Dr. Matticks enjoys challenging the limits of his fitness and durability by participating in various endurance events throughout the year, such as marathons, triathlons and cross-country skiing. He is an avid reader (fiction, non-fiction, current events), soccer fan and unabashed, self-described “foodie.” Though Dr. Matticks feeds off the energy of others, he also likes quiet downtime.
