Dr. Janine K. Rihmland, M.D
Founder & Director
I have been a Family Doc treating patients in the Washington County area for almost 22 years now. My passion is to use all the tools I have gathered and help patients in an integrative and comprehensive way with their various medical issues.
I was one of those fortunate people to feel a very strong calling, already at the age of fourteen, to become a doctor and help people. With various activities to “try out” medicine, such as job shadowing, working at a Pediatrician’s office, volunteering, doing research, and then getting to spend a summer working with a rural Family Doc in Maine, my desire and passion to help people only grew more. While at Case Western Reserve Medical School, I had some wonderful Family Practice mentors who taught me to think outside the box, to really attend to patients’ mind-body-spiritual needs, and to tailor treatment plans that were unique to each patient. That included adding on other things (complementary therapies) to the standard or conventional treatments learned in medical school. I graduated from Case Western with my M.D. Degree in 1995 and won the Donald E. Minch Award to “Medical Student Who Most Exemplified the Ideals of Family Medicine”. I then did my internship and residency in Family Practice at The Washington Hospital from 1995 to 1998. From there I joined two wonderful docs in the country setting of Claysville and began my mission to continue learning and gathering more knowledge and “tools” to be able to help people heal in a more comprehensive way.
My passion for helping and healing people stays strong. I have been practicing medicine in the Washington County area since 1995 and am so grateful for the privilege to impact and share in the lives of my patients. Spiritually, I feel very blessed and honored to be able to care for so many wonderful patients who have been my greatest teachers. I am committed to continue learning new tools that would be appropriate in caring for patients of all ages using an Integrative model of Family Practice which combines both conventional or traditional therapies with complementary or natural medicine as needed or appropriate.
