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
