I always have a list of questions to ask and current health information since our last meeting.....the good doctor satisfies most of my concerns during the exam and then chats with me about whatever else I have left on my notes in his office after the exam. I leave his office feeling physically and mentality fulfilled . He's a good doc....

Dr. Meizlish is a great doctor. My Dad has been seeing him for about 20 years and has taken great care of him. So when I needed care I chose him as my doctor too.

I think the world of Dr Meizlish. He is practical, low key, and an expert in his field. I saw one of his Partners when he was away last year and began to realize just how much I liked him. I recommend him very highly.
