Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

Los Angeles, CA |
No regard or plan for pain following procedure.

I was his patient for over 4 years. He didn't know what's going on with my eye. So I got the second opinion. If God forbids and you go for second opinion doctor and he knows about that he will give you attitude, and ultimatum. I went back for my yearly check up. They dilated my eye and told me to wait for the dr. He came in and without doing anything gave me the ultimatum that I have to choose between him and the other Dr. He was so rude that I left his practice crying.

Dr Meallet is a superior, caring, most trustworthy doctor. He removed my cataracts,(which was a breeze) replaced with lenses so that I have no need for glasses. He is a wonderful doctor, sensitive and the most caring doctor I've had the pleasure to meet for decades. He is an angel for sure!
