    My first visit with Dr.Meislin went well, a month laterhad my surgery. He made me feel very safe & once it was done got a call from him the next day to make sure I was doing well & if I had any questions. What a warm caring doctor. ..

    After Dr. Meislin repaired my torn rotator cuff and my recovery was 100% (like it never happened) I referred my wife for her knee and my uncle for his knee (both thrilled with their own results). Four years later, when I tore my other rotator cuff (lucky me), of course I returned to Dr. Meislin. Again, a 100% recovery (like it never happened). What else is there to say? You just can't argue with results like these.

    Simply the best. I've had a knee issue for over a year. Multiple MRI's multiple doctors including the Philadelphia Eagles team doctor, Hospital for Special Surgery, etc. Dr. Meislin and his staff (including David) are professional, communicative and competent. I have faith that the Dr. will find a solution. I am also very pleased with the Hospital, its staff, and the processes as everything runs very smoothly. The hospital as a 3 Tesla MRI which was instrumental in finding the root problem.

    Dr. Meislin is the best doctor I have ever seen. As a former professional football player in the NFL & CFL I wanted to ensure that I saw a doctor who understood the difference between injuries and injury recovery. I needed to be functional, as an athlete, after recovery not just able to walk and jog. Dr. Meislin was the absolute best that I have ever seen and his experience with NFL players and professional athletes makes him the absolute best no matter what your level of sport. Flash R.

    Dr. Meislin definitely has the patient's best interests in mind. It's impressive how quickly Dr. Meislin is able to make a highly accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan; i.e., with the essential information and/or test results. Dr. Meislin is pleasant,yet, direct and very focused on fixing the patient's medical issue(s). I'm certain that he's very busy but he's never made me feel rushed; ask him questions and he'll answer every one. You won't regret choosing Dr. Meislin.

    Dr Meislin was an excellent physician on many levels: knowledgable, personable, bedside manner and ability to name a few. Before the operation I had a number of questions that I forgot to ask in the pre-op interview. He got back to me very quickly on two occasions with all the information that I needed. Before the operation in the hospital he was also excellent at allaying my fears and explaining the fine points of the operation.

    My shoulder was a mess before surgery as a result of many dislocations over the years. After Dr. Meislin's work, my shoulder has been better and stronger than at any time since the first dislocation. I have been very pleased with the result.
    in New York, NY |
    My orthopedic surgeon strongly referred me to Dr. Meislin to repair a severe shoulder break, which involved two surgeries prior to my case being considered by Dr. Meislin. I am more than delighted with a successful outcome. Dr. Meislin is highly attentive and care for his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Meislin not only to my friends and professional colleagues should they ever need an experienced & excellent sports medicine orthopedic surgeon. It's rare for a surgeon to be so approachable!

    Dr. Meislin has done 2 surgeries for me. He repaired my right shoulder rotator cuff 4 months ago. My shoulder is feeling great and I couldn't ask for a better doctor. Dr. Meislin also repaired my left lateral meniscus with a meniscus transplant. This surgery is not very common and I feel truly blessed that I was in the hands of Dr. Meislin. He is the best orthopedic doctor out there. I've had 5 surgeries total and my last 2 have been with Dr. Meislin. I will only go back to Dr. Meislin.
