Dr. Meikle’s major research interests are focused on male reproductive endocrinology, prostatic and thyroid neoplasia and laboratory techniques for hormonal assays. The objective of the studies in male twins has been to determine the influence of hereditary and environmental factors in the pathogenesis of lower urinary tract symptoms and benign prostatic hyperplasia. Studies are planned to do linkage analysis of susceptibility genes to the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia. The goal of studies in thyroid neoplasia is to assess the influence of radioactive exposure on the development of autoimmune thyroiditis and thyroid neoplasia. In human prostate cancer cell lines, studies have focused on hormonal and non-hormonal mechanisms that regulate growth and apoptosis of this common neoplasm in aging men. A wide range of endocrine assays has been developed at ARUP.
The experimental techniques used in the laboratory include radioimmunoassay of steroid hormones, growth factors, markers of apoptosis and LC/MS/MS methodology for hormonal assays. Molecular biology techniques include PCR, mRNA analysis and gene sequencing.

I appreciated Dr. Meikle's willingness to wait for additional medical records to be faxed from another physician's office and then interpret their meaning for my situation.UofU Patient December 10, 2013
Positive experience. Yes-yes and yes.UofU Patient November 13, 2013
I have little confidence in this doctor. He almost gave me a prescription based on the lab results of the wrong date. I had to point that out to him. He seems out of touch with the current systems. Also, my labs of the last few visits indicated levels were moving in the wrong direction. One would think that I should increase visits to more closely monitor if my levels were shifting, but instead, the doctor had not followed up with me in two years. I had no idea my levels were changing like that. Never once has this doctor measured my thyroid with an ultrasound. During this last visit, he did not even feel my throat. I get the feeling that he does not care a bit about my thyroid help. I am done with this doctor.UofU Patient October 14, 2013
I felt the resident working with the doctor was better suited to care for me than the actual physician. She asked questions and provided feedback. She moved the conversation forward with questions about treatment, etc, even when the physician was in the room.UofU Patient September 24, 2013
The Doctor didn't particularly address my concerns in a satisfactory manner. Didn't explain medication he proscribed. Or how we should proceed in treating and understanding the root cause of my complaints.UofU Patient July 29, 2013
I feel very comfortable with the service I got.UofU Patient July 02, 2013
Dr. Meikle took extra care to ensure that i understood what the possibilities of my condition were and what treatment we would follow after test results had been recieved.UofU Patient March 04, 2013
No only did he not listen, take time to help or show any concern. He didn't give any instruction on how to take the medication given. All that he did was hand me a prescription. It was my local pharmacy that assisted me and a P.A. that I know. I was told that he'd follow up in a month to make sure i was being given the proper amount but when i went to reschedule the staff member checking me out informed me the write up sheep was for a follow up in three months. I have used the Universities healthcare system before and found it to be very excellent, it is unfortunate that this was such a disappointment. My brother was to see this same doctor but after my experience has since cancelled.UofU Patient January 22, 2013
Dr. Meikle always answers any questions I have.UofU Patient September 10, 2012
I had no questions/concerns at this visit so there was no need for a treatment plan or problems.UofU Patient July 31, 2012
Dr. Meikle has always been good to listen to me and answer my questions.UofU Patient June 18, 2012
Dr. Meikle is not very friendly and he is not very open with telling me what is going on. However, the resident that helped me was extremely friendly and helpful, and also he made sure he was thorough in making sure he got all the information. Dr. Meikle never does that.UofU Patient May 05, 2012
The MyChart program is fantastic.UofU Patient April 20, 2012
Dr. Meikle was friendly, but did not spend the time with us that I expected after waiting months to see him. I had some basic questions that I was told couldn't be answered until Dr. Meikle met with me and then waited about 2 months for an appointment to have him spend about 5 minutes with us. Left feeling that the questions were addressed on a very superficial level, but not really getting the in-depth answers that I was expecting. Waited for a long-time to get test results from another office, that, if we had been informed before we could have brought a copy with us. Sent MA in to give us Rx with no explanation of what it was or what exactly it was going to do.UofU Patient March 06, 2012
I felt my concerns were not addressed. My time with the physician was less than two minutes and was only to inform me of his decisions. I will not be back.UofU Patient February 17, 2012
See previous comments: It was 90 minutes from door to door for my appointment with Dr. Meikle, for whom I waited nearly 80 min to see and he spent ~ 3 min discussing my case. He had no idea who I was, talked about my A1C test and forgot entirely about my neuropathy (diabetic or idiopathic?). Dr. Meikle should retire, I felt like I was nothing but a number to him. It was a joke and I will not be returning to the Utah Diabetes Center for any follow-up treatment nor will I recommend it to any friends nor family. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED
