I have had two minor surgeries with Dr. Meals. He is an excelllent, kind and professional doctor with decades of experience. The office is well run and attentive to patients. Dr. Meals is patient and calm. His reassuring manner makes one very comfortable with news that one needs surgery. I trust Dr. Meals completely and feel he is a highly skilled surgeon. Another patient waiting with me for surgery shared that before going to Dr. Meals, another surgeon recommended an elaborate operation. Dr. Meals solved her elbow problem in a short 30 minute operation. My recovery pain was much less thanks to his post-op instructions. The scars are almost invisible thanks to his skill. I would take any family member to Dr. Meals and recommend him to friends.
Dr. Meals removed two arthritic joints, one from each thumb, and the results have been amazing! Back to full function of my hands without the pain I was experiencing before. He's a warm, non-alarmist type of doctor with a keen intellect and dry sense of humor--all of which I love! I would certainly recommend him to anyone needing medical attention for hand issues and complaints!
