Excellence from top to bottom
My husband and I have both had several colonoscopies with Dr. Meister and his team. Consistently the care is excellent. Communication is strong and the in-office experience has always been of highest quality. And I do appreciate the added bonus of an appropriate sense of humor in the midst of an otherwise unpleasant procedure.

Colonoscopy
Pre-Op and procedure were flawless. Entire staff, from the receptionist, to the anesthesiologist, to OR nurses and recovery nurses were GREAT. Overall procedure went very well. Although I wasn't looking forward to the procedure my concern for my next visit will be of no concern at all.

Best doctor ever!
Dr. Meister and his team of office workers and nurses are top notch. They are patient, kind, and make you feel very comfortable. They give you a warm gown and socks along with a warm blanket while you are waiting for your procedure. When you wake up, you are offered delicious coffee/tea or other beverages or your choice, and a snack! Dr. Meister has great bedside manner, expressing genuine care and concern for his patients. He is very easy to talk to, and I highly recommend him and this practice!
