Dr. William N Meshel has the following 2 specialties
- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.
- 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.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Like others, wished we had him for a family doctor. He trained at MD Anderson in Texas and in New York City at the best hospitals they have. Won all kinds of awards. Even though he was a New Yorker, he fell in love with Texas and stayed here. We are dang lucky to have him. He saved my life. Been to all kinds of doctors, specialists. Dr. Meshel knew what was wrong with me right away. If you can call your hospital to see when he's working the ER, go see him. You can call him, too, and leave a message on his cell phone. He'll get back to you. God bless you, Doctor. Love the book you wrote on how to stay well. Miss your radio shows. My wife and I would tune in each week to listen. Hysterical. You could have been a stand up comic but we are sure glad you became a doctor. You sure know, too, that laughter is the best medicine.
She was seen in the ER by Dr. Meshel. If it hadn't been for him, I would have lost her. He is brilliant, New York City and Texas trained and at the very best schools. Just wish we could have him for a family doctor. When we hear he's come to town to cover our ER, we always go see him. Don't know what happened in the past with him and don't care. Everyone makes mistakes. He was man enough to get back on the horse and overcome whatever it was he had to. Maybe that is why he is so compassionate? You can't find a smarter doctor. He is old enough to have just about seen everything and smart as a whip enough to get on the computer and figure out what it is you might have if he hasn't--and real fast. We had been to many doctors with my wife suffering. Dr. M. figured her situation out right away. If we had seen anyone else, she would have died. By the grace of God, it was him that day in the ER and not someone else. God bless you Dr. M.
