Specialties at Wooster Family Health and 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.

Cardiology

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.”

Dermatology

Our dermatologists manage a variety of skin, hair and nail diseases, including dermatitis caused by a wide range of allergens; fungal infections; and the damaging effects of prolonged exposure to the sun.

Endocrinology

The endocrine system is a major control system of the body, regulating temperature, metabolism and other processes. Specialists at Cleveland Clinic provide care to people with endocrine disorders such as diabetes mellitus; obesity; osteoporosis and related problems of androgen excess (such as acne and menstrual irregularity); hypoglycemia; and glandular dysfunction of the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals, ovaries and testes.

Family Medicine

Family physicians specialize in the primary care of all members the family. This includes the care of newborns, infants and toddlers, school age children, adolescents, adult patients, and elderly patients. The goal of family physicians is to provide preventive and primary care across the spectrum of common complaints and concerns that patients encounter.

Gastroenterology

A variety of upper endoscopic diagnostic procedures are offered in order to identify the causes of abdominal or chest pain, nausea and vomiting, heartburn, bleeding and swallowing disorders. More accurate than X-rays, endoscopy can also help identify inflammation, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), ulcers and tumors. Lower endoscopy is used to evaluate stomach pain and intestinal bleeding, as well as to detect polyps in the colon that may lead to colon cancer.

General Surgery

Our board-certified general surgeons provide evaluation and treatment, including minimally invasive surgery, for a broad range of medical problems, such as hernia repair and gall bladder removal.

Hospitalist

Hospitalist is a new kind of specialist who is making life easier for both patients and doctors. For years, physicians have scrambled between seeing their patients in the office and following them in the hospital. Now, the hospitalist follows patients during their hospital stay, returning them to their primary physician’s care after discharge. This makes medical care more efficient. Inpatients have someone to address their immediate, ongoing needs while they are in the hospital. Outpatients needn’t worry about office visits being delayed or rescheduled when their primary care physician has to go back and forth to the hospital to check on patients.

Internal Medicine

Our internal medicine staff provides comprehensive services for adults, such as diagnosing and treating health problems that require prompt attention, conducting general physical examinations and performing screenings, which may detect health problems early.

Medical Oncology / Hematology

Oncologists diagnose and treat both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors. Specialists offer a full range of treatment options, including chemotherapy, and coordination of care with other specialists, such as radiation oncologists or others involved in cancer management, if necessary.

Obstetrics / Gynecology

Obstetricians and gynecologists offer specialized care for women, including comprehensive prenatal care, preventive health screenings and general gynecology. If necessary, the expertise of other gynecologic specialists is available in areas such as infertility, high-risk obstetrics and gynecologic cancer. A board-certified mental health specialist offers counseling related to women’s issues or issues surrounding infertility at the Beachwood Family Health and Surgery Center

Orthopaedics

General orthopaedic care, sports medicine and spine care are offered.

Podiatry

For adult patients with foot and ankle problems, podiatric specialists provide comprehensive diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. Most often, problems can be treated using non-surgical methods. When necessary, however, surgery is performed by physicians specializing in foot and ankle procedures. And most surgeries can be performed in our convenient outpatient surgery centers, making it possible for most patients to go home on the same day of surgery.

Psychology

Psychologists provide individual, group or family counseling for a variety of common problems. If appropriate, they refer patients to other specialists and community resources.

Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy is the use of high-energy X-rays, electron beams or radioactive isotopes to attack cancer. Radiation therapy causes cancer cell death by ionization or by damaging the chromosomes in the cell so that they cannot multiply. Radiation therapy is a local treatment – aimed directly at the cancer. Aside from its use as a single treatment, radiation therapy has been shown to enhance the effects of chemotherapy.

Radiology

Cleveland Clinic's Division of Radiology offers a full spectrum of radiological services provided by nationally recognized, subspecialized radiologists. The Division of Radiology is one of the leading radiologic academic centers in the world as well as one of the busiest clinical departments in the country. Each year more than 500,000 examinations are performed and interpreted by Cleveland Clinic radiologists. In addition to publishing numerous peer reviewed papers yearly and leading several national organizations, Cleveland Clinic radiologists are involved in cutting-edge research in several areas. These include treatment of acute stroke, magnetic resonance angiography, three-dimensional imaging, digital radiography, digital mammography, cardiac magnetic resonance, cartilage imaging, electronic image distribution and intravascular ultrasound.

Sports Health

These include kidney disease, bladder control, prostate disorders, sexual dysfunction, male infertility, cancer (testicular, bladder, adrenal, prostate and kidney), chronic urinary tract infections and obstructions, and birth defects such as undescended testes and hypospadias.

Wellness / Weight Loss

"Weight" No Longer Program

Cleveland Clinic Wooster “Weight” No Longer program is a practical, scientifically based weight loss and weight management program designed to teach effective, safe, and reasonable weight loss strategies through behavior change and lifestyle modification. The 18-week program consists of weekly group sessions that will alternate between an educational presentation on a relevant weight loss topic (see list below) one week and a support group style gathering the next. The educational sessions will provide the reason and understanding, essentially the foundation, for the behaviors and actions taken to successfully lose weight and more importantly maintain weight loss. The group support sessions will provide an environment that fosters feedback, support, togetherness, and motivation. Participants will be encouraged to share their concerns, feelings, successes, and failures or, if so desired, simply discuss a news report, research finding, or magazine article. On occasion, group exercise sessions may also take the place of the support groups if preferred.

Participating in the “Weight” No Longer program implies commitment, and thus full participation. There will obviously be conflicts in schedule, unplanned emergencies, and/or previous commitments that may interfere. However, success requires dedication and commitment, and, to some degree, sacrifice. This is not a quick-fix solution and may not be appropriate for those diagnosed as clinically morbidly obese (BMI > 40)*. We want this to be a rewarding, enjoyable, and fulfilling experience, one that will positively impact the rest of your life.
