Dr. Myers has been the Primary Physician for our family for about 34 years. He has agreed to include our children, their mates, and our 5 grandchildren in his practice even when he was not taking any more patients. The most outstanding event of our years together is the time when he saved my wife's life. Marion had an appendix burst. After the initial surgery, her care was being managed by the surgeon and she was not recovering well. She had a temporary colostomy. Dr. Myers examined her and had the material in the colostomy bag examined in the lab. The lab found fecal material in the bag. If this had not been diagnosed and treated promptly and properly, she may have died instead of recovering.
