We study matrix models related to SO/Sp gauge theories with flavors. We give the effective superpotentials for gauge theories with arbitrary tree level superpotential up to first instanton level. For quartic tree level superpotential, we obtained exact one-cut solution. We also derive Seiberg-Witten curve for these gauge theories from matrix model argument.
