This Doctor has gotten my diabetes under control to where my A1C runs about 5.5 for over a year. My thyroid condition is well monitored and maintained by Dr. Meriden. I have enormous trust and faith in Dr. Meriden. He has brought my endocrine health to a great place. I wish I had met him at the beginning of my illnesses. I believe he could have brought everything under control much sooner. I absolutely love this man!

Dr. M is completely thorough and genuinely cares about his patients. He'll always take time if I have questions etc. Always listens carefully. The term "under a doctor's care" was made for dr. M! Under his care my thyroid and metabolism problems are being well managed.

Dr. Meriden truly saved my life I was in pretty bad shape from being misdiagnosed from other doctors with my diabetes. His staff is amazing and kind and since my dad was recently diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 80, I could not be more relieved to have Dr. Meriden treating my father as well. You are awesome Dr. Meriden. Keep up the great work.

He is always on time. I did not want to be put on insulin, so I came to Dr. Meriden. Between him and I we are working on getting my weight down, and myA1C down to 5. Together, we will do this. He is extremely helpful.

Going to Dr. Meriden was the best decision I ever made! My weight had skyrocketed in spite of good thyroid test results performed by other doctors. Dr. Meriden teaches you how to be “healthy”; he equips you, monitors you along the journey and provides ongoing guidance and support at every visit. He is extremely knowledgeable and attentive to your success. And, is not afraid of challenging you when necessary. He has been treating me approx. one year and I have lost 45 lbs. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Meriden to anyone who needs diabetic, thyroid or weight management care.

Dr. Meriden is very attentive, thorough, and will even challenge you a little to do the work to take care of yourself. I appreciate his guidance as I have lost 65 pounds and maintained that goal for a few years now.

Dr. Meriden helped me with my fatigue and battle with my weight. I was eating properly and exercising and still seeing my weight sky rocket. I had so many other Dr.'s test my thyroid and kept saying everything was normal. Dr. Meriden helped me even when my tests coming back fine.

Dr. Terry Meriden saved our sons life! He took us in immediately after a primary doctor diagnosed my son with type 1 diabetes and blood sugars of 640. We were terrified. This wonderful Dr and his staff made us comfortable and to feel secure that everything would be alright. Within days my sons blood sugars were under control. We were treated with such compassion. He is an angel and and will forever be our hero!

Dr. Meriden is a thorough and knowledgeable physician, who tells his patients how to take care of themselves, and understand the importance of seeing a Dr. and listening to his or her directions and instructions. I'd recommend him to anyone who needs diabetic care , thyroid care, and any medical care in his field.

Horribley messy, unorganized, and out of date office. Patient files were in the hallways, wires exposed, and rooms so packed full of pamphlets it was overwhelming. Not to mention the dr doesn’t even use a computer system. He was unable to look up my previous test results. After taking a short time to review my issues, he suggested I get another opinion. Even their bathroom was dirty and he didn’t wear gloves. Instead used a tissue as a barrier. Will not return.
