Dr. Frederick Canning Meadows
While student at UM, I went to see him for some breathing difficulty,he found a deviated septum.He did it twice as first time left some kind of wheezing when breathing from nose.It was not a total success but medicine is not an exact science.As a person, he was a busy professional but kind and nice.Sincere condolences.
How do you describe a giant? You were that and much more.The memories I have of you as a Doctor,as well as a co-worker,are numerous.I remember that you were never too Above us as nurses aides to sit with us over coffee,or dinner,and how we loved having you there.I remember after I left Doctors that if I had a sore throat,I could always call the switchboard and ask Is Dr Meadows light on? I could leave a message,and in minutes I received a return call.I remember your prescriptions along with Dr Camp for your T&As.I remember too working when you received the news of your own personal tragedy,and in your grief,you never wore your heart on your sleeve.One of my fondest memories of you is when we were having our annual Christmas Party,and I couldn't find a dress.You asked me every day if I found one,and were so relieved when I did.You said Now I can sleep at night.The world has been relieved of a very special man,Never to be replaced. You will always be Freddy Meadows to me,and Oh so special.Rest well.Betty Reynolds Barnes.Miami Lakes
my memories of being a patient of Dr. Meadows go back to my high school days in the 1950s....what a wonderful doctor he was....he will be missed by all that knew him....may he rest in peace
Dr. Meadows came to me as a patient only months after my grandfather passed away. The two of them shared many similarities: in physical appearance, intelligence, love of family, God, and country. We are so quickly losing an entire generation that sacrificed greatly to make this country what it is. It was my great pleasure to work with him a few times a week for an hour. His stories and advice were always encouraging to me and other patients. I viewed others comments on this site with joy and sadness. I hope that I was some aid to him. I know he was to me and many others as a Dr and as an example to other healthcare providers.
