Dr. Meier, M.D., a native of Larned, KS, has worked and volunteered at all levels of local Emergency Services. He moved to Southeast, KS and became a paramedic in Coffeyville by the age of 21. He loved observing the physicians comfort and serve patients in the ER and admired the way the providers gave their all to their community. He continued to work as a firefighter and paramedic for nearly 14 years before going back to school, as well as serving in the US Navy Reserve. While in medical school, he found that he loved Family Medicine and felt it was a perfect fit for him.

HistoryThe Cherryvale clinic first opened its doors at 216 East Fourth Street, with Dr. Charles L. Empson, as the owner and operator.
In 1992, Dr. Empson sold the practice to Mercy Hospital in Independence, Kansas. In February of that year it became a rural health clinic, and Sharon Shoop was hired as the office manager.
In 2008, the clinic moved to Main Street in Cherryvale, where it is currently located at 203 W. Main. On December 31, 2015, Mercy Hospital relinquished ownership and contents to Wilson Medical Center, which now owns and operates Cherryvale Family Medicine.
