Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Meara "I enjoy working with children - they are full of potential and hope. Craniofacial reconstruction repairs congenital and traumatic conditions and restores children and their families with new hope and a better future. Helping children and their families is wonderful in its own right; in addition, the procedures and techniques are also challenging and rewarding. Craniofacial surgery is certainly based on science and technology, but there is an artistic component as well. Patients all have different and complex conditions that require a flexible, problems solving mindset - there is no standard formula. As a result our team is constantly creating and innovating new and better ways to restore and reconstruct and redefine problems and solutions. This requires a multidisciplinary approach - calling on the best from all caregivers in our team."

What People Say About Dr. John Meara, MD
Dr. Meara charges $463 for a 15-minute outpatient visit. If you have a high deductible, you should know this beforehand. I would not recommend him for this reason. Nobody should be penalized to this extent for doing the best they can for their child’s health.
