Dr. Myers and his wife, his college sweetheart, Ann, fulfilled another dream and moved toward the coast to open up private practice.

Dr. Myers and his wifehave many fond memories of family vacations in the Garden City, Surfside and Litchfield areas. These fond memories and their desire to live near the coast led the Myers to make Grand Strand their home.

“I serve on a number of committees with local hospitals and play an integral part in the healthcare delivery they provide. It is important to learn from other countries how they provide medical care in an effort to improve ours.  I always enjoy the leaning process and hope to bring information back to my local hospital of what I have learned”.  Dr. Myers
