I was grateful for Dr Meadows. He is professional but friendly as well. He wants to get to the bottom of what is going on. The one thing that really impressed me is he’s attempting everything before surgery. I was really relieved.

I knew I had done some cumulative damage to my shoulder over the years.It all came home when I heard my shoulder tear at the gym Dr. Meadows was referred to me by a doctor friend of mine.Right from the first visit I knew I was in good hands. He explained the damage and the proposed repair.Post op we discussed the extent of the damage being greater than expected.I did not push the shoulder and followed all PT instructions. 1 year later my shoulder is terrific. Good work Dr. Meadows!!

Dr. Meadows is an excellent surgeon with great perspective. I first went to Dr. Meadows after breaking my clavicle for the 4th time, and I wanted a second opinion. He was able to show with my x-rays the issues that I was having and how the previous doctor did things differently than he would have. In my experience he generally took a conservative approach because he is interested in your long-term health and wants to make sure you can get back to doing what you want, also avoiding future issues.

Dr. Meadows is a STUD! He always takes the time to answer questions clearly and to the point. This Doctor tells you what he's going to do, does what he tells you, and does what he says. I trust him and you can as well.

Dr. Meadows did an outstanding job with my diagnosis, surgery and follow-up. The outcome from hip replacement surgery was as good as it gets. In just four weeks I am almost pain free with excellent movement. The care, including the hospital stay at Lone Peak was smooth, caring and professional. I recommend Dr. Meadows, his staff and the fine treatment at Lone Peak with out reservation.

I had a severe staph infection in my right shoulder that required multiple surgeries to correct. Dr. Meadows is not only a great surgeon but listens to my concerns and worries. He explained everything in great detail so that I understood what would happen. He followed my post op care until we both were satisfied with the recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Meadows.

The process of having my hip replaced from start to finish was a very good experience. Absolutely no complaints.

Dr. Meadow's did a wonderful job on my new hip. I stayed in Lone Peak Hospital overnight and when I got home I never needed a walker or crutches, they just got in the way. I can't say enough good things about him or the hospital. Lone Peak is very clean and the staff is great. The food is so good that I felt like I was in a 5 * restaurant. I had a very good experience and Dr. Meadows was a wonderful find for me.

Dr Meadows is very personable and professional. He isn’t knowledgeable and helped me get my ACL repaired along with my Meniscus. He cares about his patients and knows how to help them.

My daughter tore her ACL playing competition soccer. Dr Meadows was great explaining the surgery and the rehabilitation from this injury. Everything from the office staff, to surgery, to physical therapy has been great and easy to work with. The injury was devastating for my daughter but 5 months later she is returning to the sport she loves.

Dr. Meadows was kind and patient. He took time to explain my injury, the surgery to repair my femur and clearly described the time-course of healing. He was upbeat and positive. Told me that I would be able to ski next year, which I needed to hear. Took time to answer all my questions before and after surgery and at my post-operative appointment. An outstanding orthopedic surgeon. Empathetic and positive patient skills.

I am grateful that Dr. James Meadows, MD was on duty the afternoon of December 18, 2016 at Alta View Hospital. I had arrived at the emergency room, after falling, and fracturing my femur. I was very scared, and knowing I was in a great deal of pain, I was hoping to get the best care possible. I was very happy with his diagnosis, his treatment, his knowledge of my care, and the professional, and kind way he treated myself, and my scared husband. I couldn't have been in any better hands.

After having a terrible fall, that left me with a shattered shoulder, I was referred to Dr. James Meadows. He did a shoulder replacement. I was very pleased with the results of surgery, and after six months, I am doing very well, and have a lot more movement that I thought I would ever have. I would so recommend Dr. Meadows and his staff to anyone needing shoulder surgery!!

I've had a number of visits with Dr. Meadows and find him to be very competent and very direct, which I appreciate. I've also felt like he did an incredible job with my full hip replacement, and the periodic follow-up has been thorough, and worthwhile as my leg muscles are recovering and becoming stronger. There have been a couple of times where he seemed rushed and I would have liked if he would have talked longer, but that doesn't diminish my recommendation -- I think he's done a great job.

Dr. Meadows did complete shoulder replacement on my right shoulder. The surgery could not have gone any better. The recovery was better and faster than expected. I have already recommended him to friends and relatives. He is concerned about you as an individual and not just a patient . My wife will be seeing him for a shoulder injury.
