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!!
