Dr. Joshua Meier, MD
A native Northern Nevadan, Dr. Meier was born and raised in Reno. He graduated from medical school with highest distinction from the University of Southern California at the top of his class. Dr. Meier completed his residency training at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI) in the Harvard Combined Program in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. He then completed a Rhinology fellowship (endoscopic sinus and anterior skull base surgery) at Harvard Medical School and MEEI. In 2015 MEEI was rated as the #1 Otolaryngology (ENT) department in the country by U.S. News and World Report (USNEWS). Dr. Meier is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology. After completing his training, Dr. Meier returned to Reno to take over Dr. John Dooley's practice upon his retirement. Dr. Meier sees both adults and children with a wide range of ENT disorders. However, Dr. Meier's clinical focus is on the diagnosis and management (medical and surgical) of diseases of the nose and paranasal sinuses, especially chronic sinusitis. Dr. Meier is the only fellowship-trained Rhinologist in Northern Nevada and Northeastern California. This advanced training allows Dr. Meier to perform complex revision sinus surgeries, as well as to endoscopically manage disorders of the tear ducts, orbit and anterior skull base. His additional training enables him to perform minimally invasive endoscopic sinus surgery with a focus on mucosal preservation and quicker healing. Because of these techniques, Dr. Meier does not use nasal packing in the vast majority of his patients after nasal surgery. In addition, he has unique expertise in managing smell and taste disorders. Dr. Meier has lectured nationally and throughout the region on rhinologic topics. He has published over a dozen scientific papers, the majority on endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery.

Fernley, NV |
Do yourself a favor, Go to any other Doctor than this awful man. I had 2 visits with him, and each time he treated me very badly, Badly on a personal level, he was rude, condescending he didn't give me any aid or help with my condition. I left his office feeling worse than when I went in. I saw him the 2 times and was mortified by his treatment of me. The second time , he was sent to me even though I told them I was never to see him again. His treatment of me was cruel as the 1st time

I had surgery in the 1980s. That was, basically, the Iron Age of sinus surgery, complete with them having to go up through my gums, removing a cyst and wayward wisdom tooth (on its way to abscessing to my brain), and packing the sinus with yards of gauze that were pulled out my nose. OW! doesn't begin to describe it. Had to have sinus surgery now 33 years later. Dr. Meier is FABULOUS, skilled, funny, and I would not hesitate to recommend him. His practice is top notch, compassionate, & caring.

Dr. Meier was prompt, kind and personable. He cleaned out my ears and completely resolved my hearing aid issues.
