I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy.
in Lanett al |
Dr Meka and his staff have treated me for ulcerative colitis for 22 years and I can't speak highly enough of them They are a part of my life and am thankful for their service. He always takes extra time to talk to his patients and is always concerned about them. I highly recommend and encourage anyone to visit his office.
