First appointment I waited 45 minutes in the waiting room and about 15-20 minutes in the exam room before I saw the Doctor. Second appointment I had waited 40 minutes past my scheduled time before I cancelled appointment and left office. The Dr. did a good job of relieving my arthiritis pain but I will not wait 40-45 minutes past my scheduled time before seeing Dr.

I saw Dr Meinig for an old condition in which 3 doctors had already treated. I needed hardware removed & was in a lot of pain. It took longer then expected but Dr. Meinig did his HW and prepared. He collected doc notes & made sure he had a solid understanding of my case. He organized others to be in the OR with him just in case. He only gave 1 PT session to establish home exercises but I understand personal responsibility. Call if you want more: 561-401-1539 Thanks Doc - I feel better. :-)

Would not recommend Dr. Meinig. He doesn't care for you unless he can schedule surgery. My husband and I both were going to him, but he won't even prescribe more physical therapy since it's been helping keep us from more surgery.
