Each patient needs an individualized schedule to see his/her PCP. For example, a patient with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus needs to see his PCP every 2-3 weeks until his sugars are controlled. On the other hand, a healthy 30 year old woman can come once a year for blood work and a yearly physical exam.

A stress test is necessary only for certain patients. It is not considered a good screening test. Stress tests are appropriate for patients with a known history of heart disease, with exertional chest pain and with diabetes. It’s also appropriate for some patients with an abnormal EKG along with other physical symptoms.
Screening tests are extremely important and depend on the patient’s age and sometimes on the patient’s risk factors. For example a 21 year old woman needs a PAP smear and screening labs only. A 50 year old man needs screening labs, a screening colonoscopy (if he is of average risk), and may need screening for prostate cancer. Refer to the USPSTF (U.S. preventative services task force) website for further information.
The answer is yes!

Dr. Myers has been my doctor for the last 10 years and I would not have it any other way. She is the sharpest, most thorough physician I have ever been to. In the days where doctor visits feel more like speed dating, Dr. Myers takes her time with each patients to go over all aspects of their medical needs and makes sure there is a clear understanding of the needed medical care and follow up. Additionally, Dr. Myers bedside manner is second to none. She takes all of the intimidation out of a medical visit and truly makes you feel like you are talking to a friend.
