Two HMC Physicians Named “Best Doctor” 


HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (July 21, 2011) –Patrick Meacham, MD, Vascular Surgery, and Jill Steier, MD, Gynecology, two physicians on staff at Hendersonville Medical Center, were recently named “Best Doctor” for their respective specialties in the Nashville area.


Nashville’s “Best Doctor” awards are a peer-to-peer selection process, meaning the award is voted upon by other physicians. Surveyors ask physicians, “If your loved one needed a doctor in a certain specialty, to whom would you refer them?”


Only about five percent of all physicians in the United States achieve a “Best Doctor” rating.


“Both Dr. Meacham and Dr. Steier are integral members of our medical staff and have been for the last several years,” said Regina Bartlett, CEO at Hendersonville Medical Center. “As evidenced by this recognition by peers not only in Hendersonville but also throughout the mid-state, Dr. Meacham and Dr. Steier are held in high esteem by other physicians, and, I’d like to echo, also by our hospital staff and patients. We are very pleased that they have received this well-deserved acknowledgment from other physicians, and we are fortunate that these doctors choose to practice medicine here at Hendersonville Medical Center.”


Both physicians are in private practice with offices located on the Hendersonville Medical Center campus. Dr. Meacham sees patients in Suite 348-C. Dr. Steier’s office is located in Suite 221-B
