Dr. Meppelink's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Meppelink "I enjoy practicing at Metro Health Hudsonville - I grew up in this area and am part of this community. I am passionate about providing personalized pediatric care that focuses on the whole person. As a pediatrician for more than 20 years, I feel it’s important to have open communication with both children and their parents about any healthcare concerns and am committed to seeing patients when they’re sick. My patients and I share mutual trust, and I receive many new patients through recommendation of their friends and neighbors. I also enjoy teaching medicine to resident physicians and medical students at Michigan State University, where I have been a clinical professor of pediatrics for 23 years."

We have been bringing our son to him for yrs. My son is 8 yrs old, Autistic and won't see anyone else, he has bonded with the doctor and trusts him completely, we highly recommend him. He is a great Doctor and knows his stuff. He is very well known in the community for being the best pediatrician in west Michigan. A great listener and takes time to explain things to the children and the parents. Thanks for being a great Doctor.

All 5 of my children are patients of Dr. Meppelink, and we've been with him for over 18 years. When we moved to Cascasde, we kept driving to his office in Wyoming. When he moved to Hudsonville, we kept taking out kids to see him, despite the 25 mile drive to the far side of town. We tried once to switch to a more convenient pediatric office, but after one appointment, my wife and I both decided he was worth the drive across town. This level of trust and confidence is not easily replaced.

On my first visit with Dr Meppelink, he sat in the room for 40 minutes and explained things to me in an informative but simple and easy to understand manner. I was immediately at ease upon meeting him and am so glad we were referred to his practice. I feel so confident in his abilities to treat my 11mo son and future children. Highly recommend him!!
