what’s new? - update from joe

September 30th, 2019

Hello everyone! I will be providing regular updates as to what is taking place at the practice. We have several exciting projects we are working on to continue to make services more accessible. It has been a passion of mine to be able to deliver services that eliminate a long wait and with a diverse group of staff.

For this update, I am pleased to announce that in October we will be expanding our psychiatric staff! We are adding on two additional prescribers to be able to meet the demand for services.

Dr. Anita Bojtos, MD - is a pediatrician who practices serving the youth population. We are very excited to have Dr. Bojtos join our team as there is a great need in this area. Dr. Bojtos will join us on Monday’s starting this October and is accepting new patients.

Kristen Manrodt, CNP - is a nurse practitioner who will be working primarily with adults. She will have office hours starting this October and will also be accepting new patients.

Please call us at 440-526-0468 to learn more or to setup an appointment. We are thrilled at Benhaven to be able to enhance our psychiatric team and look forward to continue to meet the needs of our community!
