I have been a patient of Dr. Meisles for several years. I find him to be very knowledgeable and caring. He has always taken the time to listen to my concerns and come up with the best treatment plans for me as an individual. I trust him fully with my care and with any one of my family members should they ever need to seek orthopedic care. I NEVER feel rushed through my appointments and his office staff has been very nice and helpful with anything I have ever needed. I do have to say I was very surprised to read the other review as I am also an "obese" patient of Dr. Meisles but, have never felt the way she feels. Yes, of course he said that diet and exercise will help me but, let's be honest, I think all doctor's now say that because they are concerned about their patient's health. I don't get angry everytime my family doctor and endocrinologist tells me I need to loose weight as they stand 90 pounds soaking wet. With that said I just wanted to acknowledge Dr. Meisles as a caring, helpful and knowledgeable Doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know!
