He completed his residency at UAMS in Texarkana and after several years of private practice returned to UAMS as a faculty member. An accomplished physician, Nix is also a past recipient of the “Excellence in Teaching Award.” Matthew cares about the people of the UAMS organization and his patients. He is genuine and compassionate about the people of Texarkana and Arkansas and his work.
Beyond our community, Dr. Nix serves the medical community in many ways. He has published research and presented at the state and national level and served in the Arkansas Early Childhood Commission and the Arkansas Child Health Advisory Committee. He recently became the President of the Arkansas Chapter of the American Academy of Family Physicians; their mission is to advance the specialty of family medicine to improve the health of patients, families, and communities (including Texarkana) in Arkansas. Dr. Nix is a a fellow of the AAFP and a diplomate of the American Board of Family Medicine. Matthew and his wife Amy reside in Texarkana, AR, with their three children.
