Excellent. Doctor Meister and the staff were so good explaining the procedure which was all new to me being my first time.. Eddie was also very good before Doctor Meister arrived explaining what was about to happen and made me feel a lot better as I was a little nervous. I would like to thank all the staff for the excellent service. It all started at the front desk. Many thanks Gary Sutton

He is so personable and straightforward. He explains everything in layman’s terms. He gives the pros and cons. He lets you know that he is always available to see you. The staff at the colonoscopy center are awesome. They are warm, welcoming and ready to keep you as comfortable as possible! So impressed with the professionalism and friendliness. It’s the only place to go for colonoscopy procedures.

I was treated with great kindness and professionalism by all the staff and Dr. Meister. Dr. Meister took time to explain what was done during my colonoscopy and the findings and took time to answer any questions that I had. He also gave me some suggestions that would be beneficial to my health.

Dr. Meister was by far one of the best physicians I have ever been see. He spent time before and after the procedure explaining all of the details. The staff was attentive, professional and made me feel at ease. I would definitely recommend Dr. Meister and staff.

I have had three Colonoscopies from Dr. Meister and his staff. I would like to give them all ten stars if I could because five stars is not enough. Colonoscopies can cause a lot of anxiety and stress and all this was lessened because Dr. Meister and his staff are so caring and compassionate. From the moment I checked in for my latest procedure I knew I was being cared for by the best in the business. And that best includes EVERY staff member I met and there were a lot of them. My two nurses made me feel like I was having my procedure at home. And my anesthesiologist, bless her heart, found a vein in my arm that kept receding and "rolling" over. And everyone on staff kept me well informed on what was coming, and afterwards on the results. Dr. Meister apologized profusely for being late due to unforeseen circumstances for which he had no control. I just want to thank you all for such a positive and reassuring experience. I definitely will be back four years from now!

I have always been very happy with Dr. Meister and the staff. They make a somewhat unpleasant experience (colonoscopy) relatively pleasant. They are all caring, wait times are very short, and the whole process goes smoothly, from check in to check out.

It was wonderful! My friends from NY to Fort Collins got to hear how great it was, even to the point of being fun! Like a day at a spa. Better than the Broadmoor. All the girls I met were extremely kind and accommodating and as cute as a button! Dr Meister had his hand on my shin when we visited. It felt very warm, caring and reassuring. I felt like all the nurses were totally competent. Insertion of the IV was less irritating than a mosquito bite. I felt perfectly perfect from the moment I woke up. No cramping, no gas, no soreness. I felt very alert. You couldn't have been more hospitable. I don't intend to return for another 10 years, but if I do, I look forward to it.

This is my 2nd colonoscopy with Dr Meister and I like him so much I’ve sent him thank you cards! Who does that for a colonoscopy?! My young husband died of colon cancer, so I am terrified of also getting cancer and leaving our children alone... and I have a family history and personal history of polyps. Dr Meister is warm and compassionate. He understand my personal fears, as well as the basic fear of the procedure and he takes his time to make sure I understand everything. He also takes extra time to be triple sure he is seeing everything to give me peace of mind. He is definitely THE BEST!! Go see him and his team.
