Dr. Meehan saw both of my children after they each contracted a concussion. He spoke to me as a parent to allay my fears and spoke to them, listened to them, and made them each feel like he cared - his bedside manner was amazing. I have also heard him lecture and was impressed at his knowledge and interest in the subject.
