Dr. Meister is an incredibly caring,dedicated,open minded dr He spent a lot of time with me on my first appt, asking me questions, going over options, asking what I felt was the right treatment for me. He was genuinely interested in me & my views & concerned for my welfare.To my complete amazement, Dr. Meister has called me on 2 different occasions on the weekends because he wasn't able to call during the week.This man is amazing & I feel so fortunate to have found him!! Thanks, Dr. Meister!!

This office tries to pressure you into buying a Colonoscopy Prep Kit for $25. The only medicine in this kit is Perrigo Polyethylene Glycol 3350 8.3 Oz that sells for $11.58 on Amazon. The other contents of this kit are unnecessary as you already have what you need at home instead of this stuff. They even have a diaper, wipes and a water bottle in this kit. Come on!! Overcharge of $13.42 for unnecessary items.

I am a new patient and brought labs from previous doctor; he took the time to review my information and was able to make a more accurate plan for further testing. He also addressed an additional health issue that I had. I would definitely recommend him because he is thorough and I did not feel like he was just rushing through the appointment. Very open to questions and gladly repeated information that I didn't catch the first time.

I felt that Dr. Meister was a real professional. What I liked is that he talked to you before the procedure to ask what the problem I was having. He was not like lets hurry up and get this over with and out the door When it was over he dropped by to let a person know how every thing went. Plus the staff was great as well. I glad it was good news . Great doctor! and staff!

Dr. Meister was extremely professional and very knowledgable. I won't lie, this was my first colonoscopy and I was a little nervous.

If I need any more future colonocopies, I will insist on seeing Dr. Meister, he is amazing and his staff were incredible!

My husband and I, both patients of Dr. Meister, feel confident that he has our best health and quality of life foremost. I was surprised and pleased to receive a letter this week telling us a liver growth that University/Memorial wanted was indeed benign, just as Dr. Meister had felt it was. Usually it's wait and worry until a follow-up appointment.

Procedure went well--had to wait almost an hour after scheduled time due to difficult cases in front of me--every 30 min the nurse informed both me and my husband of the delays--that was very nice of her.

He was very laid back and easy to talk to. He was also specific when we met after my procedure and explained everything so that it was easy to understand. This is not a procedure you look forward to, but Dr. Meister and the staff made it non stressful!
