Dr. Mayeaux lives and practices in Columbia, South Carolina. He has received the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP) Award of Merit three times and has also received numerous faculty teaching awards. He focuses on women's health and skin diseases, noting that the most important trends in the field are the rise and fall of methicillin‑resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); changes in Pap test recommendations and follow‑up; and changes in human papillomavirus (HPV) testing recommendations. Dr. Mayeaux considers keeping up with the rapidly changing knowledge base in medicine to be family medicine's most critical challenge.
