Ratings for Dr. Marcus E. Meekins
I think there is something wrong with the last review. I have been seeing Dr.Meekins for two years and also followed him to Memphis. I never had any trouble getting my medical records from him and he did a deposition for my accident case as well. I think it's obvious that some people only go to doctors to get pills and try to get on disability. Most people that I talked with said that they got good pain relief with him and the office stayed pretty busy.
I had been seeing Dr. Meekins for approx. 2 years when he suggested I file for my disability. I contacted an attorney which he recomended. Dr. Meekins never complied with Social Security nor my Attorney. There are others that he will not provide records for patients and proceedures. My Attorney believes that Dr. Meekins did not keep records of any of his patients visits. He has changed the name of his office several times since I started seeing him and moved his location from Jackson, Tn. to Cordova and now I see back to Jackson. Think we are just gonna let the Medical Board and Medicare have a little fun with him now. He is not professional and just a little too cockey. If anyone reads this and cares about future records of their treatments and billing...STAY AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR. I was lucky enough to get my disability..other patients..not so lucky...they are still waiting on the GOOD DOC to comply with Social Security and their Attorneys. I hope this will help others.
Dr Meekins will not submit procedure to insurance. says must pay cash. He will not return my calls and will not give me the name of the medication he injected me with. I had an allergic reaction which sent me to the ER. They sent me to my primary doctor the next day which wasn't sure how to treat me without knowing what was injected in me. My doctor still has not received any reports or records from Dr. Meekins. When I call the office they advise me they can't help me only dr. meekins can. Very disturbed about this doctor. He wants to perform a PRP injection but I am reluctant to get it done.
I was getting epidural shots and he recommended a very strong pain reliever to my family physician and I had to quit seeing her but said that he could still write my pain med. The next appt with him I got the shot and told him about the medicine. He said he would have to talk with her. She has written him to letters to him to ask him to help me. Ive tried I know 30 times over a 2 month period and the receptionist is such a snot and evidently he has no nurse and he will not call me back. and all she says is "all i can do is give him the messages and then its up to him." i asked to speak with a nurse but she said no i would have to talk to him. She wont even make me an appt to talk to him. Horrible horrible dr. and dr etiquette. I asked her for him to just send me a letter as to why he wont talk to me but she said no she couldnt do that. And I dont know who to complain to
Had an appointment to see Dr Meekins, but never saw him. Only saw one aid and one nurse. Aid had me undress and ran some silly nerve test that I found out later needed to be licensed. Nurse tried to sell me on an elective surgery that insurance wouldn't cover. Called numerous times later to try to reach the doctor. Never heard back.
