Specialties at Lorain Family Health & Surgery Center

Allergy / Immunology

Allergy specialists offer comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for both adults and children. Although the most effective treatment for allergies is eliminating or decreasing exposure to the allergen, medications, such as long-acting antihistamines, may be helpful. In some cases, allergy shots or allergen vaccines may be necessary to bring symptoms under control.

Anesthesiology

Board-certified anesthesiologists provide anesthesia for surgery, as well as pain management following surgery, using the very latest in technology. Our anesthesiologists are specially trained in outpatient surgery.

Audiology

An audiologist is available on-site to assess and treat hearing problems due to chronic ear infections, ruptured eardrums, trauma to the eardrum, inherited conditions or diseases of the inner ear.

Our cardiologists diagnose and treat heart diseases, such as coronary artery disease, valvular disease and rhythm disorders. Complex cases are referred to Cleveland Clinic's Heart Center, ranked No. 1 in heart care in U.S. News & World Report’s annual survey of “America’s Best Hospitals.”
