    Dr. Meister and his staff are friendly and professional. The prep for the colonoscopy was not bad and much better than stories I hear from friends who have gone to other clinics.

    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr. Meister was extremely professional and very knowledgable. I won't lie, this was my first colonoscopy and I was a little nervous. Dr. Meister made me laugh with his sense of humor and I felt much more comfortable. They wheeled me in and gave me some medicine and I woke up back in my room like nothing ever happened. If I need any more future colonocopies, I will insist on seeing Dr. Meister, he is amazing and his staff were incredible!
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr. Meister has performed at least 3 procedures for me. I would highly recommend him and GACS.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    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.
    in Colorado Springs CO |
    Dr. Meister was the best physician I ever had. He was very thorough questioning me in my first visit and always pursued each complaint that prompted me to come to confer with him. I have already recommended him to a relative.

    Dr Meister is a great doctor. He took care of my dad and constantly looked for solutions with his illness. I will forever be grateful for his work and every procedure he did for may dad made a huge difference in his quality of life.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    First one actually listening and trying to figure out the problem.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr. Meister is very personable and spends the appropriate amount of time with the patient. I have never felt rushed.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    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.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    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!
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr. Meister took time to talk to me both before and after the procedure. I have been searching for a good gastroenterologist since finding out I have diverticulosis years ago. He is the first doctor I've had that I really feel comfortable with, and I will be staying with him for as long as his practice accepts my insurance!
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    100% I would recommend Dr. Meister to anyone needing gastroenterological services. I am probably alive thanks to this gentleman's dedication to his patients and to science.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr. Meister eased my anxiety about my procedure when he sat down beside me, eye to eye, and talked to me about the procedure and answered all of our questions.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    He helped solve my problem of chronic cough that was interfering in my life and had become debilitating. He also solved other symptomatic problems that were unrelated to the cough but were gastro related.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr Meister has been my GI Dr now for many many years and I wouldn't have it any other way. He works hard to find solutions for my problems and I have plenty of them. He is always on time and get very upset if he's late for his patients I have worked with Dr Meister in both the hospital setting as a nurse and as a patient. I think he is an excellant Physician and he is also taking care of my sister my brother and he even took care of my mother who is deceased now. Don't ever leave Dr Meister!!
    in Colorado City, CO |
    Great experience
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    I recently had a colonoscopy. The facility was clean and comfortable. The nurses and receptionist were helpful and caring. Dr. Meister talked with me before and after the procedure. He was professional and his calm demeanor put me at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Meister and his staff. They even serve complimentary coffee and snacks after your procedure!
    in Colorado Springs |
    He explains everything in detail and I never have to call the office back to find out what's going on with test results. Dr. Meister takes the time to call patients himself. That's a caring Dr.

    Excellent, he identified the problem very quickly.

    Dr. Meister is a World-class professional! Havealready recommended him to my friends---one already scheduled her visit---which she has been delaying for over one year! It could be a life-saving procedure! Absolutely!
    Colorado Springs, CO |
    very good
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr. Meister was awesome, answered all my questions and very professional ! Great Care and Great Staff !
    in colorado springs, co |
    Dr. Meister is the best. He has a technique he uses to minimize the residual gas left in the intestine so there is little/no discomfort or flatulence after the procedure. Significantly better than the first 2 colonoscopies I had done. Staff was outstanding, as was their outlook on a not so great event/thing to have to do/get done (ie. the 'bottoms up coffee shop :) '). When you have to have this done, THIS is the Doctor to go to!!!
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Listened and very understanding about my problem. Definitely would recommend.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    The instructions were clear and easy to follow and the Dr. explained everything in detail and answered all my questions.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    This was my third colonoscopy with Dr. Meister and all have been handled very smoothly and professionally. I could not expect any better service then I received.
