Joining the Fight

Radiology Associates of Ocala welcomes a new breast imaging specialist to the Women’s Imaging Center.

Witnessing her cousin’s small children undergo the loss of their mother to breast cancer rubbed a raw spot in Dr. Ridgely Meyers. Stung by the tragedy, Meyers determined to channel her ambition into the early discovery and the defeat of breast cancer. The board-certified breast imaging specialist now brings her drive and vision to the Radiology Associates of Ocala’s (RAO) Women’s Imaging Center (WIC).

“I’m excited to see how we can advance the field of breast imaging together,” Meyers shares. “For the woman anxiously awaiting the results of her mammogram, I want to provide a timely and accurate interpretation, with helpful and appropriate recommendations for follow-up.”

After receiving her undergraduate degree from Harvard University, Meyers proceeded to earn her M.D. from Texas A&M Health and Science Center College of Medicine, interning there as well. Upon completing her residency in diagnostic radiology at Baylor Scott & White Health, Meyers earned a fellowship in breast imaging from the University of California, Irvine Medical Center.

“I continue to strive for excellence as an expert diagnostic consultant for physicians, as well as a skilled interventionist who can provide compassionate procedural expertise for patients,” explains Meyers.

WIC Director Dr. Amanda Aulls considers bringing Meyers’ experience to bear in Ocala’s fight against breast cancer extremely valuable.

“Our practice’s capacity for outstanding care is enhanced by her extensive training, acumen and empathy,” offers Aulls.
