I have A* start algorithm in matlab that gives me a certain path from point A to B. What is the best way to simulate it in Gazebo so Turtblebot is able to follow that path that is generated in Matlab. I was thinking to send coordinates to Gazebo and callback them back to Matlab...I'm new to ROS so I'm not sure what tools to use to do that.

If you are using ROS with a simulated turtle bot, then you could start here:

A* is a global planner, and in order to drive the turtle you'll need to map the global plan to command velocities. The ROS Move Base package could help you out. There is also Turtlebot Navigation.
