When he’s not seeing patients or spending time with his family, Dr. Jordan Meyers can’t wait to lace up his skates and hit the ice. Dr. Meyers played hockey when he was a Pirate at East Carolina University, and he continues to play in an adult recreational league to this day! At the rink, you might spot his biggest fans: his wife Katie and two young daughters, who are the center of his world.

5 Questions With Dr. Meyers:

What’s your favorite part about your job?

Making people feel better and returning them to doing what they love. A lot of the time we are able to do a few simple, easy treatments for patients that really gets rid of their pain fast. I tell patients, “My job is to try and get you better as quick as possible, then have you forget all about me because your pain is gone!” I also truly enjoy getting to know my patients and making friendships. It is really fun for me to connect on a personal level and learn more about them, where they come from, and establish long-lasting relationships.

If you could make one rule everyone had to follow, what rule would you make?

Do something nice for others every single day. If we all did something nice, or made someone feel good about themself every day, this world would be a much better place. “Change starts with you,” as the saying goes, so I challenge everyone to try and lift others up and make them feel great!

What’s your favorite food?

Sushi! That being said, it’s challenging for me to come across food that I don’t like.

What was your first concert?

My parents took me to see Elton John at Walnut Creek when I was 12-years-old. It rained like crazy towards the end. We were muddy and soaking wet, and it was an absolute blast!

Who inspires you to be better?

My family. They are my everything, and I thank God every day for them. I feel this “Hallmark Channel moment” when I see them, where no matter how crazy the day was or what kind of sadness is happening in the world, they make all things feel right. My wife and two girls make me want to be the best version of me that I can be, which challenges me to improve all aspects of my life.

Bonus Question: What have your kids taught you?

Enjoy every simple, little thing. Appreciate the beauty and wonder of even the most basic of things. Take your time, take a step back from the hustle, bustle, and chaos, and truly try to live in the moment. I had no idea how much having children would change my life for the better. They have a way to make every day really special!

Back to school – and sports!

It’s that time of year again – kids and their parents are everywhere!  Soccer, dance, piano – and of course, homework!  It’s a lot.


And it’s a lot for the feet!  Kid’s feet get a lot of overuse this time of year – P.E. at school, dance practice, soccer cleats – keep an eye out, parents!  The tell-tale sign?  Limping around the house.  If you see your child walking funny in the kitchen, give your friendly neighborhood podiatrist a call.  We don’t need Junior missing out on the fun!


Many easy suggestions can keep your little person enjoying all the action.  One tip:  Keep shoes on all the time.  Shoes make feet happy!  Everyone wants happy feet. 🙂 

Introducing Dr. Jordan Meyers!

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:

Dr. Jordan Meyers

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!
