Thank God we found this Dr. He is special for sure. He is very caring and what is truest awesome is how the nurses feel free to call him at anytime of day if a problem arises. He came twice daily to check on my husband who was in hospital for a week. He’s like those old fashioned doctors who go the extra mile for his patients. Highly recommend him.

Visiting Dr. Mekras was such a relief from the typical visit to a doctors' office. In addition to his professionalism and his explanation of presenting the diagnosis and the treatment of symptoms, he always made time to inquire about my husband's life. The night my husband died, Dr. Mekris happened to be in the hospital as he frequently was, and was the only doctor present during those last moments and I never thanked him for his empathy.

Fantastic doctor - caring, knowledgeable, performs only necessary noninvasive procedures and tests - not those that hurt more than help. He such a great doctor - the best urologist you can find - I've been seeing him for years. He's not even on my insurance plan. He puts tthe well being of the patient first. You can get emergency visits if needed - staff is always helpful in that way.
