Dr. Paul Meier has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Doesn't seem to listen and he just wants you out of the office so he can get to the next in line. Medicine pusher and just throws meds at you without really listening to the actual problems.

What did they mean?

My ratings are based on the fact that I wasn't "allowed" to come in to see them. I'm familiar with Dr Meier as a well known and good Christian Counselor but I never had a chance to find out. My own doctor went out of practice and I was in search of a new one. I called them. (They were nice enough) and they took some information and would give it to their board for review. They called me back the next day and told me that " After review they didn't feel like they would be a good fit". I'm not sure what that meant and I decided not to ask but to keep looking for another doctor. I'm sure there were good reasons and I don't want to bad mouth them, but I find it hard to accept a Christian clinic telling you " not a good fit", when I'm try to find help I need. It doesn't help that most every other doctor I've called is out of practice, not taking new patients or can't get me in before my last prescription will run out. Still wonder what "not a good fit" means. Guess I don't need to be going there then. Make your own opinion though.

Very thankful!!

Dr. Meier is one of a kind! If you get to know him a while, like I did, you will think nothing but that he is incredible. I spent four weeks in his day program and saw him every morning, along with all of the other patients in the program. I had the opportunity to really get to see his personality. He has vast amounts of energy and insights. He is thorough about prescribing medications yet is quick to try and understand your, many times, very urgent needs. He is making some of the most important and pressing diagnoses anyone could. He is brilliant and sometimes his thoughts race and ideas about what he thinks is happening quickly are stated, yet he really listens and absolutely cares. He feels like this is God's mission for him and he takes it very seriously. Several times he called me back very late at night to see how I was when I pursued to contact him with an urgent situation! I have never had another doctor do that! Thank God for using Dr. Meier to save my life in an extremely urgent crisis that I don't know if I would have made it through. I suffer from severe mental illness that seemed to come out of nowhere. It haunts myself and other family members. Being bipolar is the hardest thing I have ever gone through. It takes many peoples' lives. I can't begin to describe how desperate I was to find a way out of the black abyss and have some hope. I firmly believe God led me to Dr. Meier. Believe me, he is an amazing man that, once again, helped save my life! I have no doubt about that and would recommend him to anyone! I hope you have the opportunity to get to know him like I did!
