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.

from Peg in OH February 27, 2018 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

We had a very challenging health year and the whole family experienced the professional, proactive care our very special doctor provided to all of us. Her care and support are priceless in the words of my son!

I've gone through some tough times recently, losing both of my parents. Dr. Phillips gave me a book to read about losing loved ones before this happened. It helped somewhat. But more than the book, I believe Dr. Phillips helped the most, because of the talks we had and she is just a very caring person. I feel fortunate to have her as my health care provider.

from Dottie in OH February 27, 2018 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

Well...I don't need to tell you how much your medical expertise and friendship are appreciated. I especially appreciate that you think outside the box when necessary.

After suffering a massive stroke in January 2017, all of my doctors left me hanging in the wind. They either moved to new parctices or took positions as administrators with hospitals and were no longer seeing patients in their offices. It was very difficult for me to coordintae my medical care. I joined Dr. Phillips practice in October 2017 and she has left no stone unturned in getting to the… See more

You are the best! Thanks for being you. Mike L.

from Wendy February 16, 2018 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

I'm happy to have found Dr. Phillips and MDVIP. Over the years, I'd lost faith in a system that has been unable and/or unwilling to put the patient first. That faith has been restored.

I chose to leave the practice of my last gen prac when I made a wellness appointment and indicated I had a few things I wanted to discuss and her response was we'll see if we have time.… See more

from Diane June 25, 2017 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

I experienced a rapidly progressing, relatively severe UTI on a weekend evening with considerable discomfort. I texted Dr. Phillips and she returned my text within two minutes following up with a phone call. Since I had the same type of UTI once in the past, there was no question about the diagnosis. She immediately contacted the pharmacy with prescription for proper meds. Thanks to her… See more

from Gregory in OH March 11, 2016 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

I have a lot of medical conditions and issues. Dr. Phillips carefully monitors all of them continuously. With so many issues, it is important to be able to contact Dr. Phillips and receive a prompt response, even when traveling (including overseas.) This ability will become more and more important with increasing age and if any of my issues worsen. Dr. Phillips is an ideal physician.

from Sheri in OH March 10, 2016 for Melodie Phillips, MD, FACP

Dr. Phillips has helped me through some of the most difficult times in my life! She took me on during a time of deep depression. She worked with my psychiatrist to make sure I was getting the right medicines for me. Some of the anti-depressants contributed to weight gain and border-line diabetes. In addition to adding Metphormin to my regime, Dr. Phillips has made dietary recommendations.… See more
