Dr. Meshulam and his staff are awesome. I hadn't seen a doctor in quite some time (maybe ten years) so I was pretty nervous about doing things correctly and getting a thorough exam. However, from the time I got to thefront desk to the time I left they walked me through every step and listen to each and every problem I had. It's clear Dr. Meshulam cares about his patients and wants to affect their lives in a positive way.

Good listener, interested in my history. Had an immediate insight into the connection between a symptom I had and a medication I was taking. He made adjustments but didn't want to move too fast in making changes. Gave me some practicaladvice. Has a collaborative approach, working with the patient rather than forcing his recommendations on anyone. I left feeling very confident in him as my new primary care physician.

I arrived 15 minutes early to go over some paperwork as it was my first visit and Dr. Meshulam saw me immediately after. I went for a routine physical as well as consultation on a couple other issues. He was verykind, professional, and helpful in all aspects of the appointment and what I need to do moving forward. He answered all my questions and has made himself available to answer further questions moving forward. I look forward to working with Dr. Meshulam on living a longer and healthier life!

Dr. Meshulam was very personable and quick to diagnose my symptoms. He is not my primary care physician but I felt very well taken care of -- the doctor did a very good job of getting to know me and mymedical history in a short amount of time. I would not hesitate to return for a follow-up visit, or an unrelated issue.
