Patient Comments (5)
Denver, CO |
For my first visit I waited 45 minutes in the waiting room and another 30 in the medical room. For my second appointment I was told it was at 3 but then when I arrived I was told 3:40 and proceeded to wait for over 30 minutes past the 3:40 time in the waiting room. Then close to 20 minutes in the medical room. She is a nice doctor but doesn’t do surgery and is not very prompt towards her patients.
Unfortunately, sometimes there are unanticipated patient needs that can set our calendar back. I strive to make my patients feel as though the most important patient that I am seeing at that time, is the one in front of me. I aim to be thorough and precise and be sure to answer all my patients' questions in order to give them the best possible care. I am sorry you seem to have experienced longer than usual wait times. If there is any way we might be of assistance please contact my office.

Waited to be seen for 52 minutes at orthopedic associates to see Dr. Meadows. I finally gave up on waiting and I requested a refund of my copayment and went to another doctors office where they are respectful of your appointment time.

Dr. Meadows is engaging, friendly and sincere in her desire to help her patients. I was fortunate enough to see her during a holiday week when no providers were in town. She is conservative in her approach and definitely methodical in her assessment, diagnosis and treatment. She take the time to listen to my problems, detailed background and needs. I am very pleased with Dr. Meadows and recommend her to anyone looking for help with orthopedic issues.
Dr. Meadows is a very astute and compassionate doctor and provider. She has always put together a solid plan for getting back to 100% she takes the time to listen and develop a short term and long term plan for improving health. She takes the time to look at all factors and evaluate immediate needs. She is very professional with returning phone calls promptly, and does not waste time when things are critical. I appreciate her approach and solid bed side manner. She has helped me immensly.

Went in because of pretty bad pain in hip and back. Her answer was to lose weight and go on an antidepressant. I went elsewhere ended up having a torn Labrum with bone fractures AND 4 herniated discs. She's not a nice person doesn't know what she doing. STAY AWAY from her.
