    Boynton Beach, FL |
    Referred to Dr. Meadows for evaluation of intense pain in my shoulder, R/arm, hand & trigger finger. My records, MRI discs & reports explained my history of frozen shoulder, SLAP tears, endochondroma & issues with my hand. He was brash & condescending, said the X-rays showed "no damage", did a remedial exam, refused to order a new MRI to investigate my damaged soft tissue, & told me to "exercise". Then I was dismissed. He is the WORST doctor (& I've been treated by many) I have ever been to.

    Due to a slip and fall, I had massive damage to my rotator cuff. In all my visits with Dr. Meadows, he was so pleasant, and took his time to explain what was needed and how I was to proceed from that point. He patiently answered all questions I had, and never rushed me. He truly performed a miracle surgery, in my case, and I am eternally grateful.

    I waited over 2 weeks to see Dr. Meadows, but because of his reputation, I was happy to wait. I tore my rotator cuff in January, and it has been a painfully horrific experience. I brought my MRI with me, and was looking forward to Dr. Meadow's professional guidance along with a demeanor that showed warmth and concern for a patient. Instead, I met an arrogant doctor who asked me to perform ROM exercises knowing that they would be painful for me to perform. I am now in worse pain than before!
