Dr. Sam Meyers, DPM

Sam was born and raised at the base of Mt. Tamalpais in Mill Valley, California. Sam developed his interest in medicine during his high school years and devoted a significant amount of time to volunteering in local nursing homes and hospitals. As a teenager, Sam learned to play the piano, the guitar and the drums, which he played in a few different bands, but gave up his dreams of rock stardom when he left for college.

Sam earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences at the University of California, Davis. He then earned his DPM degree at the William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in North Chicago, IL. Sam returned back to his home state of California for his residency, which is where he met his wife, also named Sam. The two had been relocated in Northern California for two years of private practice when Sam was accepted into an advanced rearfoot reconstruction fellowship in Newport Beach. Sam then joined the Artisan Foot and Ankle Specialists team and uses the skills and knowledge he picked up throughout his training to deliver state of the art, innovative patient care.

 

Sam and Sam love Disney, Star Wars and the outdoors. They live in Coto de Caza with their Aussie-doodle named Quinn and their bunny named Huckleberry. They also own two alpacas named Willow and Maple, and share them with their community under the moniker Double Sam Farms.
