First appointment. Arrived early; filled out all preliminary paperwork. Waited 45 minutes for 10AM appointment before leaving and getting co-pay refund. At 10:25, asked receptionist how far Dr. Meininger was running behind and was told she couldn't get an answer. Little respect and no communication or patents awaiting appointment.
Dr Meinenger is an excellent Gastroenterologist who explained the whole procedure to me before hand and took the extra time post procedure to plan a course of action to treat my condition. Thank you Dr. Meinenger.

Dr Meininger is an excellent physician. Takes time to address my concerns and answer any questions I have. I feel that I am in excellent care. He is caring and sympathetic toward his patients needs.
As an RN who has worked with Dr. Meininger in the hospital, and as a long time patient, I am continually impressed by his compassionate and courteous nature. I have sent, and will continue to send, my whole family to him for various issues and I always know they are going to receive the best care available. I would recommend Dr. Meininger to anyone - you will not regret it!

Dr. Meinenger is one of THE most knowledgeable, professional and FINEST doctors i have ever had the pleasure of seeing. He is thorough, caring and ALWAYS gets back to me regarding labwork, tests, etc. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Meinenger! His bedside manner is stellar, and he is an extraordinary physician.

Dr. Meininger is such an understanding doctor. Not only did he listen to my concerns but he also is an out of the box thinker and was able to help diagnose and treat my condition. Definitely would recommend!
in Fort Lee, NJ |
Dr. Meininger has been mine and my families physician for about 2 years now. He has shown nothing but compassion and caring for me and I can not ask for a better doctor to treat me and my loved ones. The staff and nurses have accommodated every request that I have ever asked for. If it was not for him and his partners (that I have seen a few times as well when Dr. Meininger was away) I would have most certainly ended up very sick and in the hospital. I highly recommend him to everyone!!!!
