Had my husband drive over 30 miles to get a shot. Was told we would be in and out. Made to wait almost an hour to be told he wouldn't be seeing him as a patient. He prescribed Otezla to my husband for supposedly having a scaly toenail that he said was psoriasis (with biopsy and he has clear skin. I KNOW because I have it). The toe nail looks fine. Just like a toenail should. My husband tried the medication which made him sick as a dog. Glad he's getting away from this quack. Staff is rude too.

I have been going to Dr. Meadow for quite a long time. He along with my other Drs. have helped me a lot with all my issues. My problem has been with getting my MEDICINES. When I go to my visits the nurse says she will call or fax meds. per Dr. meadows. It never happens. I have to call and call to get them. I as of this day have been out of one of my meds. for 2 weeks now. Staff is very NON CARING!!!!

Directed towards Dr Meadow @ Rivertown rheumatology. He made my visits unbearable. I stopped seeing doctors all together because of this man. Every visit he would tell me how fat I was. Every visit he'd tell me about a new diet. Every visit he would make it clear that me being fat was causing my issues. I have fibre mialgia and psoriatic arthritis... Neither are caused by weight. He would take my blood multiple times bcoz he didn't believe someone this fat could be healthy otherwise.

Very rude and uncaring. Staff unfriendly. Would not send my dog in to see him.

Dr. Meadow appeared to not be concerned about symptoms. He refused to further investigate problems. He also refuted other physicians evaluations and medication recommendation. Initiall, he promised to help me established a plan to help alleviate my symptoms. However, as I was literally en-rout to my second visit, his staff informed me that he had cancelled my appointment and released me back to my primary care provider, but did not give a rationale or diagnosis. Does not know how to talk to pat

He did not treat pain with anything other than pushing the atkins diet. He would tell us she had one thing, but then tell us later he never said it. Did not do well at keeping notes of what he told us at our visits. We think he MIGHT have left papers out explaining we had 2 conditions to new Dr and they would not take her case. Dr is just rude.
Carrollton, GA |
Does not read chart before coming into room. You wait for a hour or so and only see him for maybe 5 mins or less. He does not view your chart. Does not listen to patients. Staff is very very rude. Talks poorly and makes fun of patients in which I address to Doctor. He made no comment. Staff was making fun of a patient that was complaining that her legs felt like they were burning like fire. They laugh and mocked this poor lady after she left. Makes mistake on every refill. He makes you suffer.
