Patient Reviews (1)
in Albuquerque, NM |
Dr. Meckler went out of his way to care for our son when he broke a tooth. He and his assistant, Natasha, came in after hours on a holiday weekend; Dr. Meckler told us that if it had been his own child he would have wanted the same. He explained each step of the procedure and was incredibly thorough and conscientious. His compassion, technical expertise, and excellent bedside manner were so appreciated.
