Dr. Meadors is a very knowledgeable Dr and very easy to talk to. He treats the whole body and mind. He has a genuine interest in all his patients health care. Very generous spirit as well. THE BEST IN THE SOUTHEAST!!! B Key

Dr Meadors is the kind of doctor everyone wants to have. He's kind, personable, and relatable. He listens and gives recommendations based on his expertise and what he feels like you, as a patient, and as a person, needs. His staff is equally as wonderful. I've never had a negative experience at his office.
in Hermitage, TN |
I can easily recommend Dr. Meadors to anyone looking for a personable, involved, and straight-forward rheumatologist. He takes time to talk with - and listen to - patients, which is often not the case with too many physicians. In addition, his staff is just wonderful! Really like all the people that I interact with at the office, from the reception office, to his nurse, and the 'check-out' ladies. Now, if he just had a satellite office in Hermitage, life would be grand!! LOL
Louisville, KY |
