Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic

We are once again seeing all patients, but at a limited capacity. Please bring a mask with you to your appointment if at all possible.

Memphis and Shelby County is continuing to phase into reopening during the Covid-19 outbreak. MECA is continuing to follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) protocol to best ensure the health and safety of our patients and employees:
• MECA physicians and staff wear masks at all times while in the clinic.
• Patients are asked to bring a mask and wear it while in the building.
• After checking in, patients are asked to wait in the car until it is time for testing or their exam.
• Family/guests are asked to remain outside unless the patient needs assistance.
• Everyone’s temperature is checked on entering the building. If anyone has a temperature, has been in a Covid infected area in the last 14 days, or has been in contact with anyone that has a confirmed diagnosis of coronavirus, they are asked to reschedule their appointment.
• If and when appropriate, the doctor may decide to schedule a telemedicine appointment.
• We are continuing to reschedule surgery for patients whose surgery was postponed earlier in the spring due to the quarantine.

Thank you for your loyalty and patience as we navigate our clinic reopening. As always, our physicians are on call 24 hours a day. If you have a need or concern, please call our office at 901-767-3937

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Freeman is my doctor and the wait time is very long. On my first visit which they squeezed me in, the wait time was so long but Dr. Freeman did ask a lot of questions to see what my issue was. I did go back another time. The wait wasn't as long and they did apologize for the wait. So far, I got in quicker with other doctors but they weren't as good. I mostly schedule for the earliest appointment time with all doctors when I can so they are not running to far behind when they get to me. As of now, I will stay put."

  • "May I just say a great big THANK YOU to Dr. James Freeman and the WHOLE staff MECA for the wonderful care you give to you patients! I'm so thankful for you all and have nothing but praise for everyone there. Dr. James, you took care of me 13 years ago when I came in with acute angle closure (I think that is what you called it) and you had to "zap" my eye that day. You took such good care of me and your staff was awesome at comforting me when I was a bit apprehensive of the "unknown." This time around my cataract surgery went great and I just want to say how much I appreciate you. God bless you and the whole staff there at MECA. I will highly recommend MECA to everyone I know."

  • "Just had a vitrectomy and laser repair of three retinal tears. Dr Irvine and his crew were great. I was really nervous about the procedure but they were very calm and professional which helped me to relax. The procedure went beautifully. It would sound strange to say it was an enjoyable experience, but they made it a very easy to deal with event. I don’t give great recommendations very often, they have to really be earned. I highly recommend MECA for any eye care!"
