“I enjoy solving medical puzzles, piecing together a diagnosis that helps to solve problems and prevent disease.”
Acting on an early interest in adolescent
medicine, Dr. James Meyer started his
practice at Marshfield Clinic Health System in 1986. He
continues to treat a range of conditions
that includes psychological/physiological
disorders, contraceptive management,
acne, genitourinary issues, and athletic
injuries. “I have always enjoyed treating
adolescents, particularly in the area of
preventive medicine – alleviating problems
before they arise or get worse,” he said.
An important part of Dr. Meyer’s practice
involves interaction with families. “In many
cases, a young person’s individual health
may be affected by family issues,” he noted.
“I work with families to create strategies
that enhance their overall well-being, and
give them confidence that we have
accurately diagnosed their child’s condition
and provided the proper treatment.”
Dr. Meyer earned his medical degree at the
Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. The Marshfield native completed his residency at Marshfield Medical Center, and a fellowship in adolescent medicine at the University of Washington
Medical Center, Seattle.
He also serves as clinical assistant professor of clinical pediatrics for the University
of Wisconsin School of Medicine and
When he is not practicing medicine or teaching, Dr. Meyer enjoys mountain hiking and woodworking.
