What Is Chronic Disease Management?

Have you been suffering from a chronic illness for years? Perhaps, you have tried conventional medicine but have found that it isn't providing the relief you need. Board-certified family physician Dr. Leslee McElrath offers chronic disease management through holistic methods for people in Fairlawn, OH who have a long-term or recurring health condition, like diabetes, thyroid disease, arthritis, or a gastrointestinal disorder. While chronic diseases typically cannot be cured, their symptoms can be reduced by targeting their underlying cause. To improve the way you feel and function in everyday life, schedule an appointment at Monarch Ideal Care today.

How Are Chronic Diseases Treated?

During a consultation at our Fairlawn, OH office, Dr. McElrath will assess your medical history, current health, and symptoms to get an idea of how your chronic disease is affecting you. She will then focus on identifying the underlying cause of your chronic condition, as well as lifestyle habits that may be exacerbating your symptoms so she can craft a custom treatment plan. Individual factors of your chronic disease management plan will depend on the condition you have been diagnosed with. Treatment may include hormone replacement therapy, nutritional guidance, dietary supplements, lifestyle modifications, meditation, massage therapy, and follow-up visits to provide additional support and monitor your progress.

I have been seeing Dr. Leslee as a patient for a few months now. She’s great, she listens to my concerns with a professional, but relaxed approach. I will continue to refer patients to her because her bedside manner and knowledge set her apart.

Dr. McElrath is the epitome of a patient focused physician. She always makes me feel heard and extremely comfortable no matter why I'm in the office. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new physician.

Dr McElrath has set the standard all Doctors should strive in patient care. Bedside manner and benevolence in her astute care of myself and wife has been above the board. Patience and LISTENING are the first I recognized in her presence. Extremely knowledgeable in down to earth way. And she handled me being silly quite excellently. 🙃 Dr McElrath we are so grateful.

I will definitely be returning, I had a pleasant experience staff are friendly and informative, the hormones really gave me the boost that I needed, I would like to see more advertisements about hormone replacement therapy so that woman can start having conversations about hormones and age related changes without feeling embarrassed.

I love this practice! As an introvert, I appreciate the small office setting without a waiting room filled with other patients; it makes going to the doctor feel more personal because there aren't a bunch of people waiting ahead of you and the doctor isn't stressed out because of being behind on appointments or anything like that. Dr. McElrath is a great doctor and genuinely seems to care about her patients' needs and wellbeings; she's also very laidback, and it's really easy to talk to her about things. She always has great recommendations for products that can improve your health (like vitamins/supplements, foods, and even safer cleaning products) --- she is NOT the kind of doctor who will just push all sorts of medication onto you, which is greatly appreciated. Scheduling is super easy, as it is all online. You can schedule up to 3 weeks out, I believe. This practice does offer times later in the evening for those who work during the day, but available times depend on whether you are a subscription patient or a Medicaid patient. Online, you can also access your patient portal and update certain parts of your profile to keep your doctor in-the-know about your general wellbeing outside of appointments. You can view lab results, documents, questionnaires, and all kinds of other helpful info. It's pretty neat! I am 100% supportive of this doctor's office and truly believe in its ability to help and benefit its patients. If you hate crowded waiting rooms and want a more personalized experience and a doctor who cares (and incorporates online technology into their practice), this is the place for you!
