Dr. Meeks is a credit to NM Urology because of many reasons including his taking the time to attentively listen to my situation; I did not feel at all rushed. His providing me with state of the art prescription alternatives to my urology medication was a reflection of his knowledge and his being very up to date on medications for my situation. He also educated me on my options for reducing the cost of my medications. Although I only know Dr. Meeks in this clinical professional setting, he advised and treated me not only as a very competent physician but also as a friend.

He’s the best and the reason I decided to have Northwestern take care of me. He explains the situation in a clear way and lets you feel like he will be working with you and fighting for you and doesn’t scare you. He says things like if it doesn’t work, we’ll just try something else. He also lets you know he will be checking the situation as we go along with frequent scans and checks. He gives me confidence in him and knowledge so I know what will be going on.
