I worked for Dr. Meldrum for six years. He is the most compassionate and kindhearted doctor I have ever worked for! He always took the time to listen to his patients concerns. He is definitely a special doctor and his patient's loved him. I wish he was still here in Indiana to do surgery on my husband or myself when we need it. He is definitely one of the top Orthopedic doctors in the country in my opinion!

After my patient visit with Dr Meldrum, he was to have a prescription called into my drug store plus call a physical therapy clinic to call me to schedule an appointment for physical therapy. Neither was done within a week. I wonder if I would not have called would it ever have happened. I had to call his office twice and twice leave a message. Is this normal operating procedure for this office?
