Have you seen Dr. John-Paul Mead?
Posted on July 1st, 2013
I went to see Dr Mead as a patient for 3 years. He barely had time or patience with me. I was having problems with my blood pressure. He increased my medicine and when I returned in 3 months because it was not controlled he asked me why I was bothering him. When I explained my BP was not good at work he said what is that telling you? I changed doctors and found out I was on the wrong type of BP medication. I was switched over and BP has been fine ever since.Glad I changed before I had a stroke! He needs to care about what patients are telling him.
Good doctor if you're thin and healthy

I've been seeing Dr. Mead for over 4 years. In that time, he's tried to blame every medical question I have on my weight. In all fairness, I am 40 lbs overweight. I freely admit and acknowledge this fact and do not have a problem discussing it. As a matter of fact, I've told him several times that I cannot lose weight no matter what I do. When I asked him once about pain & irregular lab work that I had to look on the internet to discover was irregular in the first place, he said it was because I was overweight. A specialist later informed me I advanced degenerative arthritis. When I asked Dr. Mead about it later he said it was no big deal, a lot of people had it and I should lose weight. I reminded him I was having trouble losing weight no matter what I tried and I thought my thyroid levels were off (I am hypo-thyroid) and was having other symptoms. He said levels were fine. I asked to see my history and was surprised to see my levels climbing so I asked if he was going to do anything about that. He said no, he didn't want to make me hyper-thyroid. I had to tell him to change the dosage of my medication and waited for my lab results to come back before I finally had the energy to look for a new doctor. I'm not sure what his deal is, whether he's too busy or just likes to blame everything on people being overweight - not realizing there may be a legitimate medical REASON why people are overweight, tired, in pain, etc. He just isn't the doctor for me.
