Dr. Derrick Myers is a board certified Emergency Medicine physician who has been practicing since 2003. He attended California State University, Long Beach, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry. After successfully completing his undergraduate degree, Dr. Myers set forth on his passion to serve in the health care field as a physician. He applied to Howard University College of Medicine, Washington, D.C., where he completed his medical school education. He did his residency training at the Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, New Jersey. During his residency, he focused on emergencies in the geriatric, developmentally disabled, and psychiatric populations with chronic illnesses. Dr. Myers has had extensive training and has acquired expertise in Internal and Family Medicine working nationwide in various clinics for many years.
For the past fifteen years, Dr. Myers has worked mainly in the hospital emergency room, caring for underserved populations who were receiving poor, substandard medical care. He noticed that many emergency room visits were due to the lack of availability of providers to address medical issues in a timely manner. Recognizing the need, he began to focus on improving the overall care and follow-up to meet the demands within this population.
Acting on another area of concern, Dr. Myers, aware of the effect on quality-of-life that men’s health issues can pose, decided to do something unique for male health and overall vitality. He is the founder and CEO of The Male Clinic, based in Pasadena, CA.
The Male Clinic is a concierge clinic that focuses on men’s overall health including sexual wellness, hormone replacement, muscle building and maintenance, erectile dysfunction, weight loss, hair loss, Botox, infertility testing, and “manopause”. The Male Clinic offers customized treatment and management to maximize performance, energy, and healthy living.
Dr. Myers is a member of 100 Black Men and Sigma Pi Phi Boule. Dedicated to his career and his practice, he still manages to find some time to enjoy his hobbies which include golfing, tennis, and photography.
