Debra A. Fast, DO

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion as an internal medicine physician is to provide you with highly personalized healthcare with an emphasis on wellness and disease prevention. I have always treated my patients as I would want my own family members to be treated, and will continue to do so as an MDVIP-affiliated physician, in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. As a practicing internal medicine physician for nearly 20 years, you will benefit from the full extent of my education, expertise, wisdom and compassion. I also have always prided myself on being a great listener and feel that this quality will continue to be very beneficial as I work with you, side by side, toward creating and meeting your health and wellness goals.

Over the last 20 years, as I have grown in my profession, it has become quite obvious to me the importance of good nutrition and exercise in disease prevention. My passion is to educate my patients on diet and exercise and motivate them to use these tools to prevent disease and improve overall health and well-being. I also have a special interest in cardiovascular health, diabetes, hypertension and aesthetic medicine. I have done highly advanced training in Botox and facial aesthetic fillers and enjoy using these as anti-aging tools.

I look forward to providing you with highly personalized healthcare, and being the personal physician that you can trust and rely on to provide you with the best healthcare possible. My internal medicine practice is located in Wooster, Ohio. I am affiliated with Wooster Community Hospital. My practice services several surrounding counties including Wayne, Holmes, Ashland, Medina, Summit and Stark.
