Appointments are now available. Click the link below to make an appointment online, or call the office directly. If you schedule online, please select “physical” from the appointment type drop down menu.
Also, as a reminder, if your child is planning on participating in sports during the 2016 – 2017 school year, the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) requires that they receive a sports physical after April 15, 2016.
Beginning Friday, March 4 at 9:00 pm, M-14 between Miller Road and Main Street will be shut down for construction. This closure is expected to last through summer and into the fall, which may impact your normal route to one of our office locations. Please allow yourself extra time to make it to your scheduled appointments.
In addition, if you are a patient at IHA Ann Arbor Family Medicine, IHA WestArbor Obstetrics & Gynecology, IHA WestArbor Internal Medicine or IHA Child Health – Ann Arbor, we are also aware that the construction may delay your drive time to your office when our new building, IHA WestArbor Medical Center, opens in late August.

ANN ARBOR, MI – (December 23, 2014) – IHA is pleased to announce its planned integration with Community Orthopedic Surgery, P.C & Huron Valley Hand Surgery, effective December 31, 2014.

Hogikyan, MD; James L. Telfer, MD; and Mark R. Wilson, MD; has provided compassionate, patient focused care to patients across Southeast Michigan and beyond since 1984.
Dr. Walter “Mac” Whitehouse, Jr., IHA Surgery Department Chair commented that “these are not only nationally-recognized surgeons, but also outstanding individuals whom we are thrilled to welcome to the IHA family as IHA Community Orthopedic Surgery.”
“Ready and efficient exchange of clinical services between primary, specialty, and subspecialty providers is vital to delivering the high-quality, cost-effective care that patients need and expect today,” says Michael S.
