Specialties

Dr. Brent M Myers has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Hepatology

    A hepatologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas and biliary tree - the path through which bile that is secreted by the liver travels to the duodenum. These organs are responsible for many essential bodily functions, such as production of hormones and enzymes, filtering the blood, detoxifying chemicals, metabolizing drugs, and digesting and processing food.
    Common disorders that are treated by hepatologists are cirrhosis of the liver, gallstones, pancreatitis and hepatitis.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

30 second doctor!

I went to him because my liver was enlarged and very fatigued. I was told over the course of a year to keep losing weight and I would get better. My appointments only last 2-3 min tops. I went from 150 to 135lbs. Still feeling horriable I had went to my primary care to ask for a second opinion and actually found out why I was so sick and now in treatment. I wasted a whole year with a doctor that didn’t want to take the time to see me. See my issues. Very sad!

Pleasant experience

Routine colonoscopy. He is competent, professional, and communicated well with me. The only problem I had was his billing department not using accurate diagnosis code, hence receiving a bill that my insurance company told me not to pay. Good thing I called my insurance company, or I would've paid a bill I didn't owe.

I liked him

Had a scarey MRI at UofM hospital Ann Arbor but was then in Naples FL. He ruled out Cirrhosis/Hepatitis with labs and then fixed my post up gall bladder diaherria with a drug called Questran. What a good doctor to diagnosis both with a brief visit.
