I will finally have my surgery next week since it has been delayed for COVID-19 but have been impressed with Dr. Meier's informative appointments at this point. I am confident all will go well.

Brief. It was mostly with Amos this time. But Dr. Meier gets an A+ from me for his past surgery on my hip.

Dr Meier has treated me since 1995 and always intently listens to me and then approaches my condition with an honest recommendation. He gives me the opportunity to make the final treatment. Always his treatments have been successful. I am relying on this same results this time.

I used to work as an RN on Dr. Meier's unit where his patients recovered from surgery. His exceptionally good outcome of surgeries is well known by patients, nurses and doctors in our region. My husband had 2 very successful knee replacements and is riding his bicycle again and has been skiing since . I have chosen Dr. Meier to perform my knee replacement this month and I highly recommend him to anyone who contemplates orthopedic surgery.

Dr. Meier replaced both my hips several years ago and was absolutely wonderful during both experiences. Completely unrelated to those surgeries, recently I became ill with a staph infection in my pelvis that required hospitalization. After hospitalization I became concerned with my recovery even though I was under a doctor's office care. I called Dr. Meier and was seen immediately. He managed to assess the seriousness of the situation instantaneously and called the treating physician and consulted with another physician. Without his intervention my concerns were not being heard. Dr. Meier listens and cares!

Fantastic visit! Full review of my problem. Saw me the day I called with my pain problem. Steroid knee injection with immediate relief of my disabling pain, quickly getting back to my usual physicial activities now. He has been my hero for years and has only risen further in my esteem with this last visit. Have already referred a friend to him. An extremely experienced and circumspect physician!

I waited about an hour for a cortisone injection. Then when the Dr. came in he didn't talk to me about my knee pain, or if he did I didn't hear what he was saying as he was talking as he was going about his prep. I kept saying I can't hear you, as I'm hard of hearing, but he didn't come over to me for any clarification. So I got the injection & he left. Very clinical. His nurse was available & personable, though.
