A new healthcare clinic in Amherst held its grand opening on Nov. 30. With one week to go until they began seeing patients on Dec. 7 Dr. Corie Kovach and Dr. Anne Marie Dorobek welcomed the community for their grand opening celebration.
Ohio Holistic Healthcare at 570 N. Leavitt Road is a new clinic that will be offering services in acupuncture, medical marijuana, nutritional wellness, family medicine, general gynecology, dermatology, and minor office procedures.
“We’re trying to help as many people we can and in as many ways as possible and offering services that nobody else in Lorain County is offering,” Kovach said. “Especially with problems that are very difficult that aren’t being treated anywhere else. So we’re trying to give compassionate care that is not being serviced in any other capacity to anybody else in any other organization.”
Kovach added that their vision is transform and elevate the overall health and wellbeing of the residents of Lorain County and the surrounding areas in utilizing a combination of natural, herbal, nutrional, alternative, eastern and western medicine blended specifically for each patient.
Coming to Amherst they’ve felt welcomed calling the experience elating and overly positive.
“We’re elated that the public reception has been so warm and that we have a good understanding and perception from the community as far the public,” Kovach said. “Probably better than some in the medical community from that perspective.”
Kovach and Dorobek have been ahead of the curve in addressing local health needs as two of the first physicians in the state of Ohio certified to recommend medicinal marijuana.
“We had heard the cries from the public, the more I felt compelled to do it,” Kovach noted. “But I felt a personal drive from my heart to do that from my perspective. That’s why we go to medical school. To help people and it was really one of those personal needs to go do that. It was passion of my own to go through that to help those patients who came in every day to find an answer for them.”
