Matthews Medical Bookstore & Uniforms

Matthews' rich heritage began as a retailer of health science books in St. Louis, Missouri in 1889.  Over the past century, the company has diversified into three distinct affiliated companies:  Matthews Medical and Scientific Books, Inc., a retail company that operates health science bookstores; Matthews Book Company, a wholesale distributor of medical information; and McCoy Health Science Supply, a distributor of medical equipment and supplies.


Books – Matthews has one of the largest selection of both new and used health science books in the country. The latest editions of the most popular references are at your fingertips. Additionally, Matthews takes in new publications every week, restock orders are received each day, and books are bought back daily as well. Come browse the extensive collection of medical dictionaries, medical terminology books and medical spellers.

Medical Equipment – A complete line of Littmann stethoscopes and Welch Allyn Diagnostic Sets are part of Matthews everyday stocked items. The stores also carry neurological hammers, tuning forks, eye charts and penlights.

Uniforms – There is a large selection of lab coats and scrubs to choose from. Lab coats can be personalized. However, embroidery work will require additional lead time. Please check with the bookstore to find out the current delivery time on customized orders.

Software – Software for both PCs and PDAs is routinely in stock.

Ordering – Staff are trained to research the status of the titles you are looking for and will happily special order any book for you. They can arrange to have the book shipped directly to your physical location via UPS.
