We offer well visits to prevent health problems before they start. If your goal is health prevention, managing a chronic illness or referral for specialty care, we're here to help.
To schedule an appointment, call 216-778-2273.
Regular visits with your PCP can help prevent or manage conditions like:
- Heart disease. Your doctor checks important heart disease risk factors, like blood pressure and cholesterol numbers. If they're high, you can take steps to keep your heart health in check.
- Cancer. Not all types of cancer have obvious symptoms—or any symptoms at all. Your doctor listens to your concerns and recommend appropriate cancer screenings.
- Diabetes. Your doctor keeps an eye on your blood sugar levels and identifies your risk for diabetes.
- Flu and related complications. An annual flu shot is one of the best ways to avoid the flu and potentially serious complications like pneumonia.

Picking a Health Care Provider
We don't believe that primary care should be one-size-fits-all—and we encourage our patients to think the same way. It's important to have a provider who knows you as a person—not just a name on a schedule or chart. Building a long-term relationship with your doctor means you have an expert on your side to help you meet your health needs and goals, even as they change over time.
