We are board certified family physicians, providing the highest level of comprehensive, empathic care since 1984. As independent physicians, not employed by any health system, we offer personalized care and tailor specialist care to the needs of our patients. We have access to the best physicians in the Cleveland area including University Hospitals and Cleveland Clinic system.
Prevention is important to us. We’re here for you when you’re ill, but our goal is to keep you healthy. We’ll talk to you about important screening tests depending on your age, and also about diet, exercise, health habits, and stress management.
Our friendly staff will do their best to make you feel at home in our office. When you call our office, you’ll get a real person, not a recorded voice directing you to push buttons
We value and ensure your privacy. You will be cared for in a trusting and accepting environment.
We provide the highest quality care at affordable costs. In contrast to practices owned and run by a large hospital system, we do not charge a facilities fee when you see a doctor at our office. This can be especially important to patients with high deductible health insurance or without insurance.
We accept most insurance programs, including Medicare and Medicaid. While payment, including insurance co-pays, is expected at the time of service, our billing manager can work with you to set up a payment plan if needed.
We answer calls within 24 hours of your call. Patients being seen in the office deserve our undivided attention. Unless it’s an emergency, we’ll return your call at our breaks – lunch or at the end of the day. Emergency calls are handled immediately.
After regular office hours, a doctor is always available. If you have a true emergency, you should call 911. If you need a prescription refill, appointment, etc., we ask that you call during our regular hours. If you have an urgent matter about which you need to speak with a doctor, call our office, 216-765-1180, and follow the instructions that you hear. A doctor will return your call promptly
Our Mission Statement
We are a friendly, professional practice, committed to providing comprehensive, inclusive, quality care, with a patient-centered orientation. Our goal is to assist and support our patients to achieve optimal health and wellness – physical and emotional – through prevention and management of disease and from birth to advanced age.
If you need to be hospitalized, we will ensure that you receive the highest quality care. We use hospitalists, physicians that specialize inpatient care, to help us care for you. We remain involved and work with the hospitalists to ensure that you get timely care and get out of the hospital as soon as possible
Coordination of Care
Let us know if you were in the hospital or emergency room. We want to make sure you get the best care possible. It is important to follow-up with us, after you have been in the hospital or emergency room. So, please call us! We'll want to ensure that we have all your tests and consults
