Amy Mechley, MD

Dr. Amy Mechley loves being a physician. She has been practicing medicine in Cincinnati, her hometown, since 1998. She married a native Cincinnatian, Dan Mechley, and they are the parents of three fantastic children. Her career as a physician is grounded on servant-led principles. Dr. Mechley takes innovative approaches to some of the most challenging concerns in healthcare today. She is a recognized physician executive in primary care and led transformation in a local healthcare system, both of which gained her national recognition.

Dr. Amy Mechley has worked with all the regional Cincinnati healthcare systems and has recently served as a national healthcare consultant. At the beginning of her 20-year career, she began a relationship with the University of Cincinnati/The Christ Hospital Family Medicine Residency, and today continues to guide and teach the residents, our future primary care physicians. Dr. Mechley feels strongly that primary care physicians need to be independent in order to serve as true patient advocates. Without the contractual and administrative constraints artificially imposed on physicians, primary care doctors can work fully in the best interest of their patients, fostering a deep caring relationship to help improve health and promote wellness.

Dr. Mechley and Dr. Glass have been crossing paths through the years as they both moved to fully embrace a more holistic approach to medicine. This synergy and aligned missions brought them together to open Integrative Family Care. The practice will embody all the learnings from many years of work as a caring doctor, along with an executive understanding of the business of medicine. She feels this practice is a culmination of her calling as a healer. Dr. M would love to welcome you to the practice and to journey with you.
