Meritas Health Briarcliff
Meritas Health Briarcliff (formerly Briarcliff Medical Associates) has been providing comprehensive, quality medical care to patients for over 60 years. The practice was started in 1945 by a solo family practitioner and has grown into a seven-provider, family practice and internal medicine multi-specialty clinic. All of the physicians are board certified (AAFP and ABIM) and are dedicated to the health, wellness and quality of life of every single person we serve.
Individualized care is provided for acute and chronic illnesses, preventative care exams for all ages, well child care and immunizations, school and sports physicals, radiology services, laboratory, bone density scans, laceration repairs and skin lesion treatments.
In July 2011, Briarcliff Medical Associates became part of Meritas Health Corporation. This relationship has allowed the facility to continue to grow and to better focus on providing patient-centered medical care. To more efficiently serve our patients, an electronic medical record is utilized to track, follow and act upon your healthcare needs.
