Dr. Myer's View of Patient Care
Dr. Myer has a fundamental understanding of women's needs and how their physical issues can impact their quality of life. Here's what she says about her approach:
"I became an OBGYN to help care for women throughout their lifetime. I enjoy getting to know my patients personally, understanding where they come from and how their gynecologic concern is affecting them.
A big part of my job is to educate women on available options, both surgical and non-surgical, and make a treatment plan that fits my patient's needs using minimally invasive therapies when feasible. I have a special interest in treating women with pelvic floor disorders to help them return to a good quality of life."
Emily Myer, MD, FACOG
Dr. Myer's knowledge about urogynecology treatments is exceptional. An article on which she was the lead author was among those selected as mandatory subject matter for urogynecologists applying for recertification this year. (Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery board-certification).
Interestingly, Dr. Ashford discovered the article when he was going through his board-recertification and read her article. Dr. Myer, true to form, never told us about this honor or her achievement.
We are so proud of her as a physician, author, and colleague. Here's a link to the article we're talking about: American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology
