If you are looking for a new primary care provider, Cleveland Clinic Mercy Hospital can help. Our board-certified family medicine physicians and certified physician assistants and nurse practitioners are available to care for you and your family.
Why do I need a family doctor?
Everyone should have a primary care physician or provider. This type of doctor is your long-term health care provider in non-emergency situations, treating common conditions and helping connect you with specialists, if necessary.
If you have a primary care physician, you are more likely to:
- Have chronic disease under control.
- Have lower overall health care costs.
- Experience higher satisfaction with care.
- Receive recommended preventive screenings, tests and vaccines.
- Receive preventive care, which results in earlier diagnosis and treatment of health problems and overall better health.
What is the Mercy Primary Care policy on appointment cancellation?
Please arrive promptly for all scheduled appointments; however, on rare occasion, you may be late to a scheduled appointment. Should you arrive more than 15 minutes after your scheduled time, your appointment may be rescheduled. Please be courteous and call promptly if you are unable to attend your appointment. If it is necessary to cancel your scheduled appointment, we request you call at least 24 hours in advance. This gives the office the opportunity to schedule other patients who are in need of care. The term “no show” is referenced when a patient misses an appointment without prior notice. Unfortunately, ‘no show” appointments are an inconvenience to those patients who need access to medical care in a timely manner. Three “no show” appointments in a 2 year period of time, may lead to dismissal from the practice.
How do I access my medical record at Mercy Hospital?
Primary Care uses MyChart for online access to your personal health record. Through this site you can send messages to your physicians, read about health conditions, review test results, renew medications, update contact and demographic information and even schedule appointments.
What is a patient-centered medical home (PCMH)*?
Similar to a traditional family or internal medicine practice, a PCMH offers the day-to-day health care you and your loved ones need. However, at a PCMH, we take primary care a step further by inviting you to play an active role in your own and your family’s health care.
*Mercy Hospital has achieved the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) designation for two of its primary care practices and is currently working toward the designation at other facilities.
