My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion as a primary care physician is to provide you with 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 better 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 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, I provide 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 MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments. 

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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Phillips

from Carol in OH December 21, 2022 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

I started going to Dr. Melodie Phillips years before she joined MDVIP. As her practice grew, no doubt having to do with her caring expertise, she had less and less time to spend with her patients. I have continued with Dr. Phillips as my MDVIP PCP, and I have enjoyed the enhanced quality and time spent with my visits and annual physical. I have a number of health problems and take quite a… See more

from Kelly in OH May 8, 2020 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

Dr. Phillips is a true professional. She is detailed oriented and strives to understand her patient’s medically. She is a critical thinker and has great intuition. 100% one of the smartest physicians I have ever met. She prides her practice on patient privacy. Without a doubt, I would not trust anyone else to care for me.

from Rebecca in OH March 12, 2020 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

Several years ago my mom, then in her mid seventies, was without a doctor. ( her previous doctor moved out of state) . Although she was in good health I felt it was important that my mom find a new physician. It was important for there to be good rapport. I called an ENT doctor in our hometown that our family had known for decades. He highly recommend Dr Phillips and was a patient of hers… See more

from Carol in OH March 12, 2020 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

I began seeing Dr. Phillips as my PCP in the early '90's. She is intuitive, detail-oriented, listens carefully, explains things in depth, and stays up-to-date. She knows my medical history and is very savvy in taking that into consideration whenever I see her. She is proactive. She will do a referral to a top specialist if needed. She takes plenty of time with me, but does not waste… See more

from Cathy in OH March 11, 2020 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

Dr. Phillips has been such a nice doctor. Very thorough and caring while at the same time being level headed and professional. I feel very comfortable being myself in a consultation.
Fortunately I have not had to call her for an illness or injury. But when I needed a specialist she recommended someone who I saw in a timely manner. Thank you !

from Gloria in OH March 11, 2020 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

I have sleep apnea. I didn't know I had it, and I don't know when it might have begun before it was diagnosed. During a regular visit with Dr. Phillips, I mentioned that my (fraternal) twin sister had this. I happened to have a family picture of all five of us, and I showed it to her. She studied it for several minutes, then commented that the lower part of my twin sister's… See more

Dr. Melodie Phillips has become a good friend and conscientious health advocate. She is not only dedicated to providing the best health care possible, but she is patient, professional, thorough, sensitive and caring.

Melodie (she prefers that we address her by her first name) is a wonderful person and we are very pleased to have her be a part of our team in our effort to be as… See more

Dr. Phillips is an amazing physician. She always listens, gives feedback when requested and treats each patient with the highest regard. She remembers everything. Highly recommend. My husband and I were patients of hers before MDVIP. Kathy Boos

from scott in OH March 1, 2018 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

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.
I feel that with their help and direction I can keep enjoying what I like to do and spend time with my family.

Thank you.
