    Dr. Myers was extremely good, and took me on as a patient even though he doesn't normally take my insurance. His response was, "If I don't, who will?" He truly helped me, performed my surgery and follow up care after my complete proctocolectomy (almost 6 years ago). He may be blunt, but he truly cares about his patients.
