His mission was to bring state of the art Gastroenterology Services to the door step of our community. His vision was to deliver this care in a convenient, cost-effective and respectful way to our patients. And with the establishment of The GI (Gastro-Intestinal) Center, this mission and vision have come to fruition.

He is a Rotary Foundation Scholar for International Understanding. His three years of Internal Medicine Residency and three years of Gastroenterology Fellowship were completed at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan. Dr. Meah’s research interest was mainly on Colo-rectal cancers and some of his works have been published in respected medical journals.

He established this practice in 1995 soon after his graduation from Gastroenterology Fellowship and has been working tirelessly ever since in this community.
