  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

He's one of the good guys!

Dr. Mecum is one of the most caring, conscientious, and knowledgeable physicians I have ever seen. He cares about his patients and has the best sense of humor! He made me laugh when I wanted to cry! I would recommend him to all!

I feel like everyone else- he just doesnt care

My dad went to see him for a consult, i dont know where these people are from that believe he is the best. He does not have ANY bedside manner, his office staff couldnt fill out referral requests properly, delay, delay, delay. Ive been informed his wife is the office manger and they have a reputation for being a horrible office to deal with from a hospital's point of view

Terrible (Please read review)

Insisted my grandma improve her diet to resolve a pain in her stomach in which I pleaded for a cat-scan. He scoffed and wouldn't even look at me the rest of her appointment. Final diagnosis after cat-scan was pancreas cancer.

Worst office manager I have ever dealt with!

The staff is very friendly. But their is one person i believe she is the office manager who is very very rude! Myself and other patients have heard her talk down on her employees which is very sad and unprofessional. She interrupts patient/employee discussions. I just dont like it. The atmosphere is very stiff and negative. The doctor is good. I think the manager name is Jessica.

Best Doctor

Dr. Mecum is one of the best doctor I have ever visited. He is approachable, patient and knowledgeable. My heartburn issue was resolved after just a couple visits. Besides the visit, I also gained additional knowledge on how to prevent similar problems to re-occur in the future. Thanks to Dr. Mecum. Everything about my visit was great.
