I saw Dr. Meunier for a severe finger injury. He saw me promptly, dealt with my injury and provided me peace of mind knowing I had great care.

I've undergone two surgeries with Dr. Meunier and I was very pleased with both. He made sure to answer all of my questions and has excellent bedside manner. My injury was pretty intense, including a fully severed median nerve and 6 severed tendons and thanks to his work, most function is restored and sensation is returning. The fact that I can even type this with two hands, is because he was able to repair my hand.

Dr. Meunior has a poor plan of treatment and execution of surgury. In 2011 I have visited him for a simple mallet finger fracture. Long story short, his surgury had no effect at all. He puts on the saddest puppy face and says we have to redo the surgury after wasting months and thousands of dollars. Suffering from deprsession for 5 years ive decided to take another shot at SNUH's (in korea) Kim Ji Hyung, who has successfully pulled my extensor tendon, the 'scar' menunier inflicted.
