Dr. Meiners did my gallbladder removal surgery recently. He was kind and compassionate and had a great bedside manner. He took his time to explain the procedure and was open to questions. I felt confident in his expertise. Would highly recommend him as a surgeon.

I recently had to have my gallbladder removed. Dr. Meiners took the time in the initial visit to explain the entire process and listen to my concerns. He was very thorough. Dr. Meiners went over the steps again in the prep for surgery and was great to let the family know how the procedure went as soon as he finished. He followed up with me in post op twice to make sure I was doing ok and answer any questions before I was released. I would highly recommend Dr. Meiners for surgical procedures.

Dr. Meiners was very honest regarding my conditions and he prepared me for what to come next. He always called me with any test result personally. He was very compassionate and caring. He came by several times at the hospital to check up on my progress. This was my first surgery but he made me comfortable with the decision that I made. I would recommend him to anyone who needs surgery.
