Dr. Meek does a thorough physical exam of the chest during my visits, and I have confidence in what he tells me as we discuss his findings. He is knowledgeable about my health issues and answers any questions to my satisfaction. I'm happy to have him as a health advisor.

Dr. Meek is an outstanding physician and individual. After meeting with Dr. Meek, on my first appointment, to begin Proton. Therapy, I immediately knew I I had an outstanding Dr in Dr. Meek. He thoroughly explained everything about my treatments and answered all my questions, where I could understand. Dr. Meek is a very kind and caring person and obviously cares about his patients. I am very fortunate, to have been under the care of such an outstanding Dr. as Dr. Meek.

Dr. Meeks doesn't hurry through an office visit and gives a complete exam at each visit. He answers questions. Spends a lot of time at first visit explaining radiation process. However, did not explain all potential post radiation side effects. Experienced multiple fractured ribs after breast cancer proton therapy, starting shortly after completing therapy until now. I wasn't expecting this to happen.

Dr Meek and staff were personal as well as professional. They had either experienced the issues of dealing with radiation and its events by personal or patient orientation. I had no issues that the techs and nurses under Dr Meek did not understand and even anticipated. Dr Meek often prescribed meds prior to that need, also investigated residual post chemo problems. I feel that the best decision I made was to travel to Knoxville for Proton Therapy instead of tradional radiation.

I absolutely love Dr. Meek and would (did!) trust him with my life. He answered all my questions and never seemed impatient or eager to move on to the next patient. He was one of the few doctors that actually looked at my mammogram images and explained what they meant. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to my family and friends

I had 39 treatments ( November 2015-January 2016 ) for prostate cancer. I am 84 years old and have never encountered a more professional, skilled medical staff. The non-medical staff was equally skilled. My family and I was treated with dignity and respect by everyone. I highly recommend Provision Proton!!!
