Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Meehan does not practice patient-centered care. After the exam, I asked a question and was chastised for interrupting his spiel. After his monologue, I asked him what types of multifocal lenses does he use. He said we only use Tecnis Symfony lens in both eyes, but you will not be able to see near. When I asked about combinations of lenses for clearly seeing both near and far, he repeatedly said "we don't do that" and said "you need to go with the flow". No, I do not recommend him.
