Meritas Health Creekwood

Meritas Health CreekwoodThank you for visiting Meritas Health Creekwood (formerly Creekwood Internal Medicine). Our name has changed, but our commitment to providing you with high quality healthcare and services has not.

While you will usually see our physicians in the clinic, they will also treat you in the hospital. As part of our continuum of care, we coordinate your care and manage difficult medical issues with the other healthcare providers involved in your care.

Our doctors are primary care doctors who practice both adult and geriatric medicine (the care of the elderly and their special needs). They are often referred to as internists. They specialize in wellness - both disease prevention and the promotion of health; women's health; mental health; effective treatment for common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs and diabetes and hypertension in the elderly. They also are trained to diagnosis complex conditions, treat severe chronic illnesses, and help you understand disease prevention and what it means to live a healthy lifestyle.

In August 2015, Creekwood Internal Care 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.

What is an Internist?

Internists are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness. Internists are also known as doctors of internal medicine or general internists (not to be confused with “interns" who are doctors in their first year of residency training). Internists practice adult medicine and are primary care physicians, they are not family physicians, family practitioners, or general practitioners (whose training is not solely concentrated in adult medicine and may include surgery, obstetrics or pediatrics).


We see patients by scheduled appointment. For conditions requiring prompt attention, we make every effort to arrange either a same-day appointment or one within 24 hours. To schedule an appointment, please call 816.453.6200. If you must change an appointment, please call the office as soon as possible.

If you are a new patient, please arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment. Arriving early allows us enough time to get your information entered into your medical record. For subsequent appointments, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment so we may verify and update your information. Please bring your insurance card, applicable copays or co-insurance amounts, and any medications you are currently taking.

During your office visit, please let us know about any medicine refills you will need before your next visit. If you require a refill on your current medication between appointments, please contact your pharmacy or mail order service to request a refill. Your pharmacist will contact our office for approval.
