Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Myers "My overarching philosophy is just to listen to my patients and to remember what it feels like to be a patient. I take pride in laying out the whole treatment plan with them. I'm always drawing pictures for them. Even if I meet them in the hospital room, I'll draw a picture of their operation on their bed sheets - which I'm sure housekeeping gets a little annoyed with me for. But I always make sure that they have a full understanding of what the plan is going to be, so that if anything happens along the road we're prepared for it. We know what our plan was going in. And I let them know several hopeful outcomes. And if something happens, we're ready to take care of it."

I just completed Bariatric Surgery approximately 2 months ago. Dr Myers is a great surgeon and Dr. His bedside manner and staff are all AWESOME. I would definitely recommend him to anyone considering this lifestyle change.

Dr. Myers took the time to explain my bariatric procedure to me in a way I could understand. He has an amazing bed side manner not only to myself but to my family/friends/visitors as well. I look forward to my appointments with him because he makes me feel like part of the solution rather than part...more
