January 16, 2015

Dr. Meier has been a great ENT specialist.

November 06, 2014

Dr. Meyer provided a very good experience. My son felt very comfortable with him and he was able to put our mind as ease going into surgery.

October 14, 2014

Dr. Meirer was awesome. He showed such care and compassion for our child and made our child feel very comfortable. His bed side manner was so good, I wish all our other visits to doctors could be this good. We felt very confident with the doctor. He spent adequate time with us and listened to all our concerns and felt like he really got to know our childs issue. We felt very confident in his ability and felt he had a good handle on what our concerns as parents were. He will be recommended to our friends.

October 14, 2014

Dr. Jeremy Meier was amazing. His bed side manner was great, I wish all doctors my family and I have visited would take a lesson from him. He spent adequate time with us listening and trying to understand our questions and concerns. We felt very confident in his understanding and expertise.

September 20, 2014

he is very easy to talk to and explains well

July 29, 2014

The doctor was wonderful. He did not try to make us come in for visits that were not needed. He explained things very well and my daughter was not afraid of him. She is afraid of everyone.

May 07, 2014

Dr. Meier was very courteous and caring with my child. He took the time to talk with my child and help him reach a comfort before beginning the exam and it continued throughout the entire time we met with him.

April 26, 2014

Dr Meier was very concerned with our little boy and showed complete confidence with his dx. He was very throrough and listened and answered all our questions.

April 25, 2014

Our doctor is amazing, he is attentive to our needs, tells us his personal opinion and doesn't sugar coat issues - he keeps it real

March 25, 2014

Specialty care (ENT and all others) really couldn't get much better than Dr. Meier. He sets our standard for how a doctor should be. He listens to us, is mindful, caring, and very doting on our daughter. I simply could never have enough good things to say about the level of care that he provides.

March 22, 2014

Was very kind to our son during his procedure. Tried to ease his fears

March 03, 2014

Dr. Meier was great! He was very knowledgeable about my son's conditions and had prepared himself by studying his medical records prior to the appointment. I have had many doctors who wait until they have you in the room to go over the records, and they spend more time reading them at that time than talking with me. He was very kind and patient with my son and was a real help in making our decision to have my son's surgeries performed at PCH.

February 22, 2014

This is my first time with this care provider look my son.

January 27, 2014

Dr. Meier is a fantastic provider!

December 24, 2013

Very impressed with Doctor Meier.

October 28, 2013

We really like Dr Meier. All of our experiences with him have been great

October 08, 2013

Dr. had talked to other Dr treating my daughter and I felt like there is more they talked about but not ready to share. Would like to be able to talk to both at the same time to have all of us on the same page.

October 01, 2013

We couldn't love Dr Meier more than we do. He has been amazing with us and our children-always going the extra mile in explaining what is going on and answering our millions of questions without hesitation, no matter how silly they may be.

September 30, 2013

loved this doctor. he was very personable and I will recommend him.

August 08, 2013

Great intern experience as well this date. The doctor is very efficient and thorough. We felt well taken care of and listened to.

August 02, 2013

Dr. Meier was wonderful. He was kind, efficient, and caring. We felt confident with his ability to treat our baby. He answered our questions and made us feel at ease.

June 06, 2013

I have had a number of medical appointments/evaluations for my son. This was, by far, my most positive experience. I found Dr. Meier to be courteous, concerned, and he listened to me. I am one very grateful mother.

May 25, 2013

we are from Elko but Dr Mier took time to talk to me on the phone regarding my concerns with scheduling my daughter's appt and surgery. Everything was set when we came to Salt Lake.

May 22, 2013

he did a fantastic job and answered all my questions.

Dr. Meier is top notch!

March 26, 2013

I was Very with happy with dr. Meier and his team

February 26, 2013

Dr. Meier was wonderful. He really took into consideration the distance we traveled and scheduled things close together so that we could do it all in one trip. He took care of us even though there was a mix up on the surgery time. He called us and took care of everything to make sure we were still able to get the surgery. He called to do follow-up. He helped us understand what and why about the surgery.

February 26, 2013

Great first experience with an ENT doctor and staff, friendly and knowledgeable.

February 22, 2013

I have all ready recommended Dr. Meier to others. We have been extremely happy with his service. He has made us feel that he will not perform any surgery unless necessary.

February 11, 2013

We were very impressed with the number and quality of our interactions with Dr. Meier. We were pleasantly surprised to have the opportunity to interacted with Dr. Meier several times in the waiting area and then again several times following the procedure.

February 05, 2013

He was friendly, he just didn't have any answers for us, kept us waiting way too long and didn't really have any suggestions for us to take care of my daughter's problem. Obviously, his specialty wasn't my daughter's problem, but it would have felt better to us if he had made suggestions to us about where to turn from there.

December 04, 2012

Dr. Meier is great and always makes us feel comfortable.

November 13, 2012

I feel a little pressured on time since it was backed up. Doctor was very good, but I still felt like he needed to move on to other patients.

October 30, 2012

Dr Meier is quickly becoming our favorite specialist of the many we see. He has the perfect combination of skill, knowledge, and impeccable bedside manner. We have complete confidence in him, and are so glad that he is our daughter's ENT. We regularly recommend him to others.

October 09, 2012

I was highly recommended Dr. Meier, and I can see why. We had a great experience in the office and are confident in him.

September 20, 2012

Dr. Meier was excellent!

August 27, 2012

Although he answered my questions, I still felt a little like this was so simple for him that I should just not worry about it even though it was a completely new experience for me.

August 20, 2012

We have many specialists for our daughter's care. Dr. Meier is by far one of our favorites. He is the perfect combination of friendly, caring bedside manner along with unparalleled expertise. He is thoughtful, intentional, and always listens to our ideas and concerns. He realizes that we are very well informed parents, and adapts our conversations to an appropriate level. I've already recommended him to others, as we feel like we won the ENT lottery!

August 13, 2012

He was thorough and waited until we had exhausted all of our questions. Very kind and competent physician.

July 31, 2012

The doctor and medical student that came in were both very friendly and attentive. They answered all my questions, and were great with my son.

June 11, 2012

Dr Meyer is great! We have had a couple appointments with him, and each time he has been very thorough in explaining solutions and concerns that he has.

March 22, 2012

The doctor was very nice and took alot of time talking with us and answering questions.

February 07, 2012

I just felt a little rushed.

February 02, 2012

Very good experience. Left feeling very comfortable and confident in the care provider.
