Dr. Sam Meyers 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 as a volunteer 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 Degree in Biological Sciences at the University of California, Davis, and his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree at the William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in North Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Meyers returned 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. After his training was complete, Sam joined the Aloha Foot and Ankle Associates team. Sam and Sam love Disney, Star Wars and the outdoors. They live in Irvine with their two dogs, Huggs and Quinn.
