“I believe in providing personalized care for each individual using the most up-to-date treatments available. It is important to me that patients understand their diagnosis, prognosis, and the potential treatment options in order to empower them to make the decisions that are right for them. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to care for patients and their families during one of the most difficult times of their lives, and my goal is to help them better navigate this process and maximize their quality of life.“ Janelle Meyer, MD

Janelle Meyer grew up in the Pacific Northwest before leaving to study biology at St. Olaf’s College in Minnesota, where she was a member of the school’s swim team. Looking for a warmer climate, she spent a semester studying in Spain, which gave her a boost toward her second degree — Spanish.

After earning her medical degree, Dr. Meyer was named assistant professor at Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago.

Dr. Meyer and her family — her husband, who’s a chemistry professor, and their two young boys — came to Salem in 2016 to be closer to family. Out of the office, Dr. Meyer still enjoys swimming. She likes traveling, experiencing new cultures and exploring new countries — especially locations with good snorkeling.

 

Dr. Meyer is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in:

  • Oncology (cancer)
  • Hematology (blood disorders)
  • Internal Medicine
