November 30, 2012

No meds - No follow-up care, except coming back each month to change my cathiter

October 15, 2012

showed concern

October 12, 2012

top notch practitioner

October 09, 2012

Dr. Myers was very clear and colloquial about my condition and possible solutions. What surprised me the most about him was that when the subject of including other doctors came up, he didn't bat an eye at including them. Something I had not experienced elsewhere.

October 08, 2012

Dr. Myers has always been pleasant and easy to talk to.

October 05, 2012

Again, they're all great!

September 28, 2012

Very courteous and concerned. Very thorough in discussing the situation and options.

September 21, 2012

No lab work done. Dr. Meyers is great and just did a follow-up. I have seen him before, and he's a nice guy who understands me pretty well. His Resident was also there, and the two of them were not put off by my physical disability - they talked directly to me, and not to my Sister, who did help when they couldn't understand me.

August 20, 2012

I was very impressed with Dr. Myers. He was easy to visit with, very thorough, and was willing to spend time with us without our feeling rushed. I particularly appreciate his expertise in performing my surgery. The outcome was very successful and life changing for me. Thank you!

August 17, 2012

I am very pleased with Dr. Meyers and am glad one of the receptionists recommended him for my specific issues.

June 18, 2012

I really hope that Dr. Myers follows up with researching how to get rid of the 'fat.' When I was having the constant infections the cloudy urine was always referred to as having an over abundance of white blood cells. This helps clarify the question about milky urine.

June 08, 2012

I would recommend you before Mayo Clinic for my treatment was very appeciated.

May 03, 2012

Felt that we did not get good follow up instrcuctions. Was todl during the visit we would get written instructions but those were never provided.

April 04, 2012

Through out my course of urology problems, I've been seen by several doctors. I feel that Dr. Meyers is the best Urologist in this state or anywhere else for that matter. I am real lucky to have him and the whole staff on my team so that my problems are finally solved. I would recommend Dr. Meyers to anyone.

April 03, 2012

First time seeing Dr. Myers, he was great!

March 28, 2012

Dr. Myers was positive in believing that my condition could be alleviated, presenting several solutions, and giving me time to consider what he told me, and promising to give me a written statement of the various possible solutions.

March 27, 2012

Super doctor and super staff. I was having a problem with my blood pressure and the staff was very concerned and made a recommendation to adjust my medications. They further called my home the following morning to follow up and make a further recommendation concerning my medications.

February 22, 2012

everything went very well and as expected

January 23, 2012

Overall, very good experience.

Dr. Jeremy Myers grew up in Boston, Massachusetts. He attended the Colorado College in Colorado Springs, CO and he graduated with honors in biochemistry. He then stayed in Colorado for Medical School at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. After medical school, he completed 2 years of general surgery training and 4 years of urology residency, also at University of Colorado.

After completing his residency, Dr. Myers spent an additional fellowship year training with Dr. Jack McAninch at University of California, San Francisco and the San Francisco General Hospital. His specialty training with Dr. McAninch was in urologic trauma and reconstruction. The emphasis of Dr. Myers' specialty training dealt with the management of acute trauma, as well as reconstruction of the urinary tract in patients with problems from urethral strictures, radiation complications, incontinence, ureteral strictures, and neurogenic bladder.

Dr. Myers has been very active in academic urology and has published numerous articles dealing with the treatment of urethral strictures and acute genitourinary trauma. He has also made several contributions to textbooks in urology. He has served as a clinical instructor at the University of California, San Francisco and is currently an assistant professor at the University of Utah School of medicine. He is board certified in urology and a member of the American Urologic Association. He is a member of the Society of Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgeons and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

Dr. Myers is a founding member and previous president of the Trauma and Urinary Reconstructive Network of Surgeons (TURNS). University of Utah is one of 8 centers that collaborate in the study of patients treated for a variety of conditions in trauma and reconstructive urology. This network is designed to collect centralized data and provide sophisticated analysis of both surgical and patient reported outcomes from urethral stricture surgery, male incontinence and a variety of other conditions. This type of collaborative research effort is essential to moving forward outcome research that is increasingly important in modern medicine.

In addition, Dr Myers is co-director of the University of Utah Center for Reconstructive Urology and Men's Health. The center's mission is to provide exceptional care for a variety of difficult conditions encountered in reconstructive urology and to translate our current research efforts into innovative surgical approaches as well as improved patient outcomes.
