What People Say About Dr. Dennis Meredith, MD

Dr. Meredith replaced my entire left knee. Im the type of sissy that doesn't like pain and other than the pain issue lasting a bit longer than I anticipated during the several months following the operation, it was done as professional and with the utmost care. He is a fine surgeon and extremely easy to talk to. He pulls no punches and tells it like it is and is going to be. I have talked to several people he has operated on and they are in total agreement with me. Excellent MD

Dr. Meredith gave me my life back! After being rejected by several other surgeons, a friend had referred me to Dr. M that had a successful surgery with him. I had almost given up all hope at that time but I decided to give him a call. I will never forget my first visit with him, he took a hold of my hand and promised me that he would never give up on me. Unable to walk for over a year. Surgery was 3 days ago and not only am I walking, I feel amazing, He gave me my life back, Shelly Raquel??

I was referred to Dr. Meredith for a surgery consult due to cervical myelopathy (spinal cord compression). His bedside manner is the best I have ever experienced from ANY doctor. He actually listens and seems to genuinely care. I had my surgery within a month of seeing him, and my pain in my neck and upper back has decreased significantly! I really cannot thank him enough!!! If he says he cannot help you then you need to trust him, and not badmouth him for being honest.

Neurology referred me over to Dr Meredith for my muscular twitching; limb numbness and tingling; loss of sensation after MRI revealed bulging discs; tumor at t12; multi level spondylosis. After a 1 month wait to see him I came in waited 1 1/2 hours. He looks at me tells me nothing structurally wrong with me. Everyone my age has bulged discs. Told me he cannot help me to go back to neurology which is a complex field of diagnosis. He did not like all my questions. Tried to get up and leave however

Doesn't even deserve one star. Had to click on one to write this review. Haven't had a chance to meet the Dr.Meredith, Thanks to incredibly unskilled, pathetic staff members (paper pushers) in the Dr's office. The staff members lied, lethargically sat on the referral, denied the referral without adequate reason & made no attempt to help the patient. Such people don't deserve to be in medical profession for they deny patients needed care and medical system is blamed due to such pathetic people.

I had been in severe pain {9-10} on the pain scale, for years with no relief from opiod pain meds. Dr Meredith recommended fusing my left side with 3 semi porous titanium triangular pins. Within 6 hours after surgery I was experiencing less pain than before surgery. Within a week I went from a 9-10 to a 2-3. It was such a dramatic change, it felt like all the pain was removed. On top of his skill level, Dr Meredith is approachable where as a patient he listens to your concerns & talks to you.
