This month Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center has been excited to welcome Dr. Jordan Meyers to our office! We sat down and asked Dr. Meyers a few questions to help you get to know him a little better:
Q: What is your background?
A: I moved to North Carolina when I was 11, so I really feel that I did most of my growing up here and have the strongest connection to North Carolina. I attended Cardinal Gibbons for high school and then East Carolina University (Go Pirates!). From there I headed North to Philadelphia to attend the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine. I received my surgical training at the University of Louisville Hospital in Kentucky, all to eventually return back to North Carolina.
Q: Do you have a specialty or preference in what type of foot conditions or ailments you treat?
A: It is difficult for me to say that I enjoy treating one foot condition or ailment over another. In my opinion, the best part of my job is getting to meet new people, learn about their lives and their families, then find out how I can help alleviate their pain or condition so they can return back to what they enjoy doing. I feel very fortunate to have trained at such a diverse program that allows me to comfortably and quickly treat all conditions. Being an avid hockey player, I am also working to specialize in treating hockey injuries as I understand the unique nature of trauma and biomechanical stresses the foot and ankle undergo from hockey skates. My goal is to keep players of all ages on the ice!
Q: What are you most excited about in starting to see patients at Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center?
A: What I am most excited about is being able to bring my unique skill set to provide care for the great people of North Carolina. My wife, an operating room nurse, is also directly involved in providing care for patients. We are both excited to return back to North Carolina and provide exceptional care for people in a place that has provided us such a wonderful area to grow up in.
Q: What do you like to do for fun?
A: I enjoy spending time with my wife and young daughter! I also enjoy playing ice hockey, playing golf, working out, and volunteering my time and services to give back to the community.
Dr. Meyers is excited to be treating your feet! Stop by and help us welcome Dr. Meyers back to North Carolina!
