Accepting new patients.

Dr. Deborah Meyers’ path into the medical field began with fine art
and photography where she applied her initial studies to healthcare communications.
In the course of that work, she developed a keen interest in healthcare
delivery systems and challenges faced by patients with chronic and complex
health conditions. She brings that creative problem solving, patient-centered
care and a wealth of experience to her role as director of the new Cardiac
Heart Failure Clinic at Salinas Valley Memorial. She launched the Queensland
Mechanical Circulatory Support program and directed the Queensland “Hospital
to Home” Program in Brisbane Australia before she and her family
moved to Houston, Texas. Most recently, she was
Medical Director of Heart Failure Programs at Texas Heart Institute and Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center. She is board certified in Cardiology
and in Heart Failure & Transplantation by the American Board of Internal
Medicine and the American Board of Cardiology. She is also a fellow of
the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. Dr. Meyers has two sons,
one in college studying theatre and the other starting his career as a
chemical engineer. In her leisure time, she enjoys gardening, spending
time with friends, working out and keeping fit, and being outdoors in
the beautiful central coast environment.
