Dr. Meister was very thorough, professional and reassuring. He has consistently taken the time to listen to my concerns and addressed the various options for follow up. He explained the procedure and reviewed the findings following the procedure completed. I recommend Dr. Meister for colonoscopy or endoscopic procedural care without hesitation.

Dr Meister and the staff here were wonderful, attentive, friendly and took care to ensure that I was comfortable, and informed every step of the way during my colonoscopy journey. They checked out insurance coverage, sent easy and clear direction for the prep period and were always available for questions. On the day of my procedure, each staff member introduced themselves and explained what they would be doing. The procedure itself was super easy and painless, with Dr Meister performing the colonoscopy and giving me the results at the end as soon as I awoke! He even took the time to answer some other unrelated questions, and never seemed rushed or bothered in any way. I would definitely recommend Dr Meister and his team for any gastroenterology needs.

My endoscopy visit was as pleasant as could be expected. Dr. Meister is very amiable and to-the-point which I greatly appreciate these days. He thoroughly explained the procedure before and explained the findings very clearly afterward, along with his recommendations for what I could do to improve my health. I would recommend him to anyone with gastroenterology issues.

Best experience with this sort of procedures. The staff are kind and courteous, with a healthy does of humor. After my sister died of ampullary and colon cancer last year, I was nervous about my own procedure, but they set me at ease.

This was my first visit with Dr. Meister. I had Dr. Folan for many years prior to his retirement. I'm very pleased with Dr. Meister. My recent Colonoscopy and Endoscopy went well and I felt his care as well as his staff were excellent.
