I have great confidence in Dr. Myers. I am very grateful for the information and explanations that he provides. He is always willing to discuss my condition and problems and share suggestions. I have already been highly recommending him to others. I am certain that he will thoroughly explain about tests/procedures and follow-up care if I need those at any time.

Dr. Myers gives me great confidence in my plan of care
Patient | December 28, 2016

care provider was very nice and professional
Patient | December 21, 2016

I did not appreciate being blindsided by having a medical student come into the room prior to Dr Myers. I had no idea this was going to happen, but did not feel comfortable telling him that I didn't want to talk with him. On a couple of prior appointments, a medical student came into the exam room WITH Dr Myers. I think a patient should be provided notice ahead of an appointment that a medical student would be present and given an opportunity to say whether or not they would agree to being seen by a student. I realize that VUMC is a teaching environment, but a patient should be given a choice to be a participant in this 'teaching'.
Patient | December 20, 2016

Patient | September 27, 2016

Dr. Myers was very professional and knowledgeable. I feel I had a thorough physical exam and that he spent the appropriate amount of time with me. He listened to me and I felt was genuinely concerned about helping me. I will following up with him at a later date after trying the medication he prescribed for me. He offered to see me during my other physician appointments at Vanderbilt. I live 65 miles away so would be very very helpful.

Patient | August 23, 2016

Dr. Myers is one of the most caring and considerate doctors I have ever been too. Vanderbilt no longer accepts my health insurance but there is no way I will give up Dr. Myers as my doctor. I trust him that much with my health. He has always been there for me and I believe he was given to me through God. With Gods guidance he has saved my life. He is a true blessing! I praise God for him.

what more can I say about Dr. Myers? He is the foundation of the support network I sought when I moved here
Patient | July 18, 2016

Dr. Myers is always friendly welcoming. He is thorough and always spends considerable time to discuss any issues.
Patient | July 14, 2016

A-OK.
Patient | July 14, 2016

Dr. Myers was a wonderful physician. He took time to ask me how I was feeling, what I thought was wrong, what my concerns and questions were. No question I asked did he not answer, nor did he treat me as though I was bothering him. He went above and beyond to explore what was happening with my body and I believe the treatment he is prescribing to me is going to be adequate. I felt safe and attended to. I have a great respect for this doctor after this visit.
Patient | July 5, 2016

Patient | June 1, 2016

Dr Myers is the reason I returned from Germany. I have complete trust in him and did not want to even try to see another Dr for my condition. He has always listened to me and made me feel like I was not just a number but he truly cared about my health. He is without a doubt the best doctor I have ever seen and I wish more would be like him.
Patient | June 1, 2016

Have already and have only heard fantastic things. Feel comfortable speaking to Dr. Myers. we discussedy treatment plan and he follows through!
Patient | May 30, 2016

Dr. Meyers went the extra mile when he realized that I had been waiting so long to see him. I fear that he went without lunch to take time to see me, this problem not being his fault. I appreciate his time.
Patient | May 29, 2016

Great doctor! Involved, caring always willing to listen!
Patient | March 11, 2016

Dr. Myers is fantastic. I would not consider seeing anyone else. He answers my questions, provides information, never makes me feel like an idiot or inferior, has a wonderful attitude and a personality that allows you to feel comfortable no matter how much pain you may be in that day. I would recommend him to anyone that in need of his specialty.
Patient | February 24, 2016

Dr. Myers has always been a professional with me. Couldn't ask for anyone better.
Patient | February 23, 2016

I am at a loss as to what is wrong with me, that is why I rated the Explanations about my problems or conditions. We just don't know what is wrong and I don't think that is his fault, I just think it is the case. I do wish he would delve in a little deeper as to why I am having some of the issues. But, i have complete faith that things will get better.
Patient | February 1, 2016

Felt like I was a a nusanse for being there, or silly for asking questions. I expected more questions during the exam or time to explain all symptomatic joints but kept being cut off or subject would change after my questions. Medication prescribed was not explained clearly as to how it could help based on mechanism of action, he just assured it has helped some people who present symptoms similar to my own. Doctor seemed uninterested and almost irritated my condition. I would have left feeling more confident had he answered my questions or shown more empathy to say he didn't have answers. After doing my own research on the medication prescribed I can understand how it might help and will liken my adhearing to the treatment plan.
Patient | February 1, 2016

I am very pleased with my doctor.
Patient | January 28, 2016
