The Practice

It is our mission to keep our patients happy and healthy by offering a medical practice oriented toward primary prevention, quick access for acute illness, and aggressive control of chronic disease. Furthermore, we will always strive to create new and effective ways to reach the entire community and their medical needs.

West Avenue Family Practice was opened in September of 2004 with the idea that people in the Tallmadge and surrounding areas were looking for a family practice that had a unique approach to their medical care… a medical practice that listened to them, was friendly, and could promptly care for all members of the family.

West Avenue Family Practice is designed to do specifically that.

Our practice provides patients with a solo physician on call 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, for emergencies and urgent care situations. We offer care for a wide variety of problems all under one roof with a commitment toward primary prevention of major problems, quick access for acute problems and aggressive control of chronic disease.

To make it more convenient for you, along with a reasonable mix of available hours, office visits can be scheduled on weekends, late nights and early mornings. There is also a nurse practitioner and physician's assistant available to help assure that you get the treatment you need when you need it.

To meet our commitment, we have made a major investment into technology to offer many tests in the convenience of our office including:

Spirometry,
EKG testing,
Holter monitoring,
Tympanometry
Audiology
And many more...

We offer physical therapy services and have a mechanical traction table, electrical stimulation unit and therapeutic ultrasound. Although nearly all labs can be collected on site by a trained phlebotomist, we also have our own cholesterol, liver enzyme and HGBA1C analyzers here at the office so that we can make decisions regarding your health care on-the-spot and within ten minutes of drawing your blood. We also have a high-speed Internet connection to the laboratory so we can get an immediate print out of your lab results when they are completed.

Finally, we have insisted on keeping our office staffed with personnel who are pleasant, courteous and most importantly are strong patient advocates. We feel that the health care system works at its best when the patient is treated as the boss.

To summarize: We work with you to help you take control of your health!

We hope to see you here soon!
