I was born in Lebanon. I am the youngest of three siblings. I grew up in a poor family but very education oriented thanks to the dedication of my father who was a teacher and worked as many hours and as many jobs as he can to support us and thanks to my mother who was a housewife and dedicated all her life to us . I did my medical school at the American university of Beirut and graduated in 1997. I then moved to the United States where I did my residency in internal medicine at KU in Wichita and then moved to St Louis where I finished a fellowship in geriatrics. Finally I did 6 months of pain and palliative care at the national institutes of health in Maryland before relocating to Greensburg in 2003. I practiced there till the tornado hit in 2007 when I moved to Wichita and became a hospitalist for almost 4 years. In those years, I still came to Greensburg at least one day a month because I couldn’t afford loosing contact with my patients and the wonderful staff over there. To complete the love story between Greensburg and myself, I moved back there on Valentine’s Day in 2011.
I have two older sisters and one brother. my mom travels between all of us around the year chasing the best weather each of the locations can offer. I also have a daughter who lives with her mom in Kansas City and we all get together twice a year for a family vacation. I usually go to Wichita on weekends to relax and see my friends. I work out every day I am in Greensburg and love reading.
R.W. Meador has been in medicine for over 40 years. He attended Kansas City College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1977. He now sees patients in Haviland and Greensburg, Kansas.
I grew up in Medicine Lodge, Kansas the eldest of three children. My father, Richard Meador, was a family physician at Medicine Lodge Memorial Hospital for 40 years and now currently works in Greensburg Family Practice for the last three years . After graduating high school I attended Emporia State University and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. I then decided to attend the Physician Assistant program at Alderson-Broaddus College in West Virginia in August of 2005. I graduated in May of 2008 and immediately started working for Hahn Medical that summer. We specialized in Dermatology and Family Medicine with ten different clinics in the northeastern part of West Virginia. We decided that we wanted to be closer to home and I accepted a position at Kiowa County Memorial Hospital in September of 2011. I have also been doing a once a month dermatology clinic in Medicine Lodge since July of 2010.
I have been happily married for the last ten years. My husband is a funeral director and works for Larrison’s Funeral Home in Pratt and Medicine Lodge. We live in Medicine Lodge, do not have any children at this time but have three wonderful little dogs, Jasper Snow, and Rork. Most of my time is spent either working or hanging out with my family, but in the rare occasions that I do have free time I really enjoy reading and traveling .
