My Philosophy

The approach to patients suffering from spinal and peripheral nerve conditions should be an all encompassing one. I like to take the time to both listen and understand the symptoms patients are experiencing so that we can work together for the most effective, least invasive solutions possible. This may result in referrals for complimentary care such as physical therapy, pool therapy, chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture and regenerative medicine etc... Ultimately, my philosophy for treating pain is to help find the most direct path to pain relief for the patient using the most minimally invasive means possible. 

My Promise

My promise to each and every patient is that my practice is here for your benefit. You will have the time to discuss your conditions with me as well as possible remedies and solutions. I will always strive to provide each patient the best care possible so that they can return to their active lives pain free.

Dr. Meredith is truly amazing.  He is part of a rare breed that genuinely cares about each and every one of his patients... Read More
