I have had such a great experience. I am just amazed at the warmth and concern that is shown by every single person I have had contact with in Dr. Meis' office. And every one of them offer so much information that has been very helpful to my recovery from surgery. I could not be happier with Dr. Meis and his team of professionals.

Actual Patient

 I had rotator cuff repair surgery with Dr. Meis at CNOS in February and although surgery of any kind is usually not on anyone’s top ten list of desired life experiences, the quality of care I have received has made an unpleasant experience MUCH more tolerable. I have been treated with courtesy, respect, and dignity by all the staff at all times from the front desk, the surgeon, and the physical therapists. I really feel like I’m seen and heard, my questions have been answered patiently and thoroughly. Dr. Meis and Nichole are brilliant in the operating room and compassionate and dedicated to my healing in a beautiful down to earth way. Much gratitude to all at CNOS.
