Dr. Meek's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Meek "Dr. Allen Meek comes to Knoxville from Long Island, New York where he was the Founding Chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Stony Brook University Medical School and a Professor for over 28 years. Prior to that, he spent 11 years at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD completing medical school, residencies in Internal Medicine and Radiation Oncology and a fellowship in Medical Oncology. A Navy veteran, Dr. Meek also served as board member and officer of several non-profit organizations on Long Island. While in New York, Dr. Meek received numerous awards, including Top Doctors in New York and Best Doctors in the USA, along with awards for Humanitarianism and Environmental Stewardship. Also, he was just recently recognized as a 2012 U.S. News and World Report "Top Doctor" and one of the Best Doctors in America® for 2014. He has a passion for excellence in delivering patient care and for developing new procedures to improve that care. A native New Englander, he and his wife are thrilled about settling in Eastern Tennessee, building a home in Sevierville and their six children are looking forward very much to visiting. Dr. Meek is an active gardener, beekeeper (yes, he "robs" the bees) and enjoys playing tennis and hiking."
