My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion as a primary care physician is to provide you with highly personalized care and attention with an emphasis on prevention and wellness. I get to know my patients well because I believe it is an integral component of their care and treatment. Knowing about your daily habits, your interests and your family life in addition to your medical history can help me identify the root cause of current issues and get ahead of potential problems before they can become more serious. 

In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will be treated in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and you will benefit from the full extent of my medical education, professional interest in emerging treatment options and strong relationships with local specialists. Some of my areas of focus include prevention of atherosclerosis to decrease the risk of heart attacks and strokes, coaching patients on ways to adopt a healthier lifestyle despite barriers and exploring nonpharmacological treatments for issues before prescribing medication.

As one of the few internal medicine doctors in the greater Cleveland/Akron/Canton area offering this personalized healthcare approach, similar to concierge medicine, I provide a level of care that can help support your well-being, whether you are managing a chronic condition, have wellness goals to reach or simply want to maintain your health in the years ahead.

My practice is located in Fairlawn, Ohio, close to I-77 exits and right behind the Summit Mall. This location conveniently serves patients from Medina, Wadsworth, Akron, Bath, Canton, Copley, Cuyahoga Falls and the southern Cleveland suburbs. I am affiliated with Summa Health System and Cleveland Clinic Akron General.

Dr. Phillips has the gift of caring. Her caring drives inquiry. Inquiry drives analysis. Analysis drives wellness. She can offer sympathy but she can also offer straight talk. Its a source of great comfort to know Melodie is there. And, through her practice, shes there and readily available.

Dr. Phillips and her staff have done a fantastic job for me.
They have supported my health and wellness concerns, issues, and preventions.
As I am becoming more mature for my years I have had more concerns.

Thank you.
