Patient Comments (1)
in Longmont Colorado |
Dr Meehan is an experienced and well seasoned physician who is willing to get to the bottom line quickly regarding diagnosis and treatment. He listens and responds to his patients and creates a treatment plan that maximizes compliance and effectiveness. I was recently diagnosed with RA which I might have had for years. Thus, it was a very concerning diagnosis and effective treatment in order to avoid unnecessary pain and disability was top priority. He was the best of all docs I have seen.
