John "Jay" Meyer, MD, Director of Sarasota Family Medical
I am Double Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine. My education and expreience has helped thousands of patients who have experienced both traumatic and chronic health risks. Like any responsible physician, I would like to apply the philosophy of preventive medicine to all of our patients, but my network of relationships will ensure that my patients will see a local specialist very quickly if their condition is beyond the scope of our practice at Sarsota Family Medical. I hand pick and oversee alll of the Physicians Assistants that help provide optimal medical care to our patients no matter when they need to see a healthcare professional. I also speak fluent German.
After leaving a career as research biochemist and twenty-five years in emergency medicine and family medicine, it has been very personally fulfilling and professionally rewarding to join Sarasota Family Medical and Urgent Care. It has given me a unique perspective on patient care. In association of a group of fellow dedicated care givers, I feel like we can offer patients a superior and personal patient encounter. I also speak French fluently.
After graduating with a Bachelors of Science from State College of Florida and a Masters of Science from the University of South Florida, I have gained valuable experience working in many different fields of medicine: psychiatric care and behavorial health, advanced pain management, cardiac care, urgent care, and general medical care. Additionally, I can perform DOT physicals, manage complex workers' compensation cases, and oversee orthopedic injuries.
Graduating from Florida State University with an education degree, I began my professional career as 3rd grade teacher. I then attended Barry University in St. Petersburg to become a physician assistant. I have experience in pediatrics, cardiology, psychiatry, women's health, family medicine and internal medicine. I have obtained three certifications in life support and belong to both the Florida Academy of Physician Assistants and the American Academy of Physician Assitants.
Attaining both a B.S. and an M.S. from the University of South Florida, I continued my education at Barry University in St. Petersburg, earning my Masters of Clinical Medical Science. I performed my clinical rotations throughout Florida in areas of medicine ranging from OBGYN, Genernal Surgery, Psychiatry, Orthopedics to Pediatrics, Urgent Care, and Family, Internal, and Emergency Medicine. I am a member of the Florida Academy of Physician Assistants and the American Academy of Physician Assistants. My father is a physician, so an appreciation for medical care was enstilled in me at an early age. Bilingual, I speak both English and Spanish fluently.
