What People Say About Dr. James Meschia, MD
Reply
My sister had a TIA. She was taken to Baptist Hospital in Pensacola, Fl. Dr Meschia came on a live, video chat screen, spoke with her, diagnosed her and within minutes started her on TPR, the "clot buster." Within one hour she was back to normal, able to speak properly and was home within four days. Our family is very grateful that we were blessed with Dr Meschia's early intervention.
