I have had severe back pain for upward of 2 years now. I have been seen by a regular practitioner and in the last 8 months, I have been seen by a Neurologist. The diagnosis I have been given has been Fibromyalgia and I have been put on a series of medication. Everything from pain medication to medication to help with the Fibromyalgia. Yet, the one consistant problem that hasn't been fixed is my back. Finally, after 2 years of being on pain killers and 8 months of going to see doctors and having no results, a good friend recommended Dr. Myer. I called him up and figured that within a few days I would receive a call and then hopefully within the next week I would be able to see Dr. Myer. Imagine my surprise when within the hour I got a call from Dr. Myer and was able to see him to 2 days later.\r
I had to bring in my daughter, Bryce, with me to my appointment. Megan, Dr. Myer's receptionist is not only friendly but, she is wondeful with children. She is knowledgable and great to work with. She sent me all the information I needed through an e-mail days before to make sure everything would go smoothly.\r
My first appointment with Dr. Myer was his getting to know me and what was going on with me and my body before he worked on me. He listened as I told him the events that had been going on for the last 2 years, the pain that was going on in my back and how even though I had been seeing my regular Doctor and a Neurologist, nothing was working for me. I also informed him that I had seen a regular Chiropractor in California and that I was new to Washington. Then, Dr. Myer did a full assessment of me, excluding getting x-rays. I felt completely at ease with Dr. Myer and the plan for treatment that he has set up for me. The best part is that what he has set up for me has worked and I have been able to go to my Neurologist and my regular Doctor and tell them that the pain in my back has improved and I have only been seeing Dr. Myer for about two months. Something that their drugs and the months of going to see them couldn't do. I wake up feeling better than I have in the last two years. I am more productive than I have been in the last two years. It is a wonderful feeling.\r
And, if that isn't enough, recently, my 10 year old daughter was having some neck pain and I brought her to see Dr. Myer. Dr. Myer went through the whole routine with her that he did with me. Assessing her and explaining to her everything that he does as a Chiropractic doctor and what he would be doing to her when he adjusted her. It was nice to see the interaction that Dr. Myer had with my 10 year old daughter because Dr. Myer truly has a gift. Not only as a Chiropractic doctor but with how he communicates with his patients. He is calm, informative, direct and able to explain things in a way that my 10 year is able to understand him and when it was me, in a way that I was able to understand him. \r
Dr. Myer cares about his patients and wants the best for them. This is comforting because when I went to him, I was wanting to be in far less pain and wanted to be able to spend more quality time with my family. The care that Dr. Myer has given me has afforded me that and I am very grateful to him. I highly recommend Dr. Myer.
Pros: Knows what he is doing
