Dr. Charles E Myers Jr has the following 2 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.
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

At age 42 in 1996 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer (PSA 7. Gleason 6/7) by an Omaha Urologist who insisted on immediate surgery. I did my research of comparative options and risks, and instead chose radioactive seed implantation with another doctor in Virginia. Seven years later the cancer returned but was metastatic. After a second brachytherapy failure I changed doctors again, this time to a Chryo therapist who wanted to freeze my prostate. Made no sense to me since it was already metastatic. Next day, I attended a PC support group. and learned about Dr. Charles E. (Snuffy) Myers, a surgeon, former director of U. of VA cancer center, co-developer of early successful AIDS vaccines, National Institute of Health (NIH) researcher, and himself a Prostate Cancer survivor. I went to hear him speak at a packed church and took 12 pages of notes. The earliest I could get an appointment was 4 months later. Meanwhile I took my notes to my former Chryo doctor and convinced him to prescribe Dr. Myers' meds. Four months later I met Dr. Myers and my PSA had already dropped as a result of his prescription. He fine-tuned it and a few months later my PSA hit his goal of 0.01. Under his simple diet and other guidance my PSA grew very slowly over the next several years. Now, after 20 years since diagnosis my PSA is less than 8. I am nearly finished with Taxotere chemotherapy and am in excellent health otherwise (all the other numbers including weight, blood, etc. are optimum). Best doctor ever.
If you are looking for competent medical advice and well staffed office look no further. Dr. Myers is a leader in cancer treatment for prostate disease sufferers. His comprehensive approach in treating an incurable strain of cancer with leading edge treatment protocol and dietary guidelines are giving many of us added days to life and hope for a cure in the near future!
