Dr. Myers and Dr. Williams Speak Out on E-Scooters

Dr. Alexandra Myers and Dr. Elizabeth Williams, who practice at our Sorrento Valley office, were among protesters at the Mission Beach Boardwalk on Saturday, April 20.

Dr. Myers spoke about the types of e-scooter injuries – concussions, cuts, and broken bones – that our physicians have been treating. Dr. Williams also spoke about statistics regarding head injuries in particular, arising from failure to wear a helmet. Take a look at the ABC Channel 10 News coverage here.
