Midwestern University Clinic combines the best aspects of a traditional clinic with the strengths and advantages of a university affiliation. The MWU Clinic opened its doors to the public on May 21, 2007 specialty areas, lab services, and an EMT bay for the City of Glendale.

Our healthcare providers emphasize preventive medicine, health maintenance, diabetes management, and seamless coordination of care, including specialist referrals. In addition, our primary care providers can perform common clinical procedures in the office, offering comprehensive care for all age groups.

The Family Medicine physicians at Midwestern University Clinics also offer Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, combining modern medical techniques with hands-on diagnostics and a holistic approach to treat conditions like back pain, arthritis, and sports injuries. Our clinics provide comprehensive services including sports medicine, foot and ankle care, physical therapy, pharmacy services, sports vision training, dental care, and more.

Schedule an appointment


After-hour emergencies are handled by the physician on call. If you have an emergency please call the office and the answering service will locate the physician on call and he/she will return your call as soon as possible.

Please do not call the after-hours emergency service for prescription refills, appointment cancellations, routine questions, or issues that can wait until regular office hours.

If you have a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency center.

Areas of Specialty

Our holistic philosophy to healthcare can be a great fit for any patient.

Many patients may not know that their primary care provider can often perform common medical procedures in the office, avoiding the higher cost of specialist visits. Family physicians are well versed in comprehensive care for all age groups from newborns to the elderly. Family physicians also perform a variety of in-office procedures and manage many of their patient’s health needs.

It’s always best to start with your family doctor when you have any health concerns. You will have the convenience of one physician managing most of your medical needs, and can save money on some services. Your family doctor will let you know when you truly do need to see a specialist.

If you are a new patient, please arrive 30 minutes before your appointment time and bring with you the completed new patient paperwork that was mailed to your home or delivered through secure email or text message. If you are an existing patient, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to allow enough time to complete necessary registration procedures and/or update insurance information. Please bring photo identification such as a valid driver’s license or personal identification card, a form of payment (we accept cash, personal checks with valid identification, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express), your medical insurance card(s), and a list of your current medications.

Cancelled Appointments

We require 24-hour notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment. Appointments should be canceled only when it is absolutely necessary. If you cancel or reschedule with less than 24-hour notice of your scheduled appointment, it will be considered a “no show” appointment.

Additionally, patients who arrive more than 15 minutes late will be considered “no show” and may have to reschedule. Please remember that your care will be delayed when you miss a scheduled appointment.

Patients who repeatedly fail to fulfill scheduled appointments will be dismissed as a patient from the Multispecialty Clinic.

Children Accompanying Parents

To ensure the safety of children, they will not be permitted to accompany you into the treatment area or be left unattended in the waiting area. Children must be supervised by another adult in the waiting area at all times. If your children are left unattended, your appointment will be canceled. Therefore, please make prior arrangements for appropriate childcare.

Non-English Speaking Patients

For the benefit of your understanding of the treatment provided, we encourage you to bring a translator with you to your appointment if you do not speak English. If you do not have a translator, please provide at least 24-hour notice so we can be prepared for translation services.

Please advise us in advance if you have special needs, such as a hearing impairment or the availability of a wheelchair.

Patient Dismissal Procedure

It is the policy of Midwestern University to maintain a positive, trusting, and cooperative relationship with clinic patients. In the event a clinic chooses to dismiss a patient of record from the teaching program and/or clinical care, this policy outlines the University’s patient dismissal procedure.

Single Clinic Dismissal

A clinic may decide, independently of another clinic, to dismiss a patient. That patient may be dismissed from the teaching program or from the clinic for any of the following reasons:

  1. After three no-show appointments, during the preceding twelve calendar months, a patient may be dismissed from the teaching program or clinic. A no-show appointment is defined as the patient’s failure to provide a 24-hour notice of a cancelation and/or failure to show for scheduled appointments.
  2. A patient may be dismissed who is seeking only occasional treatment for relief of pain and not interested in comprehensive care.
  3. Failure to schedule appointments for completion of procedures.
  4. Failure to schedule health maintenance appointments.
  5. Refusal to provide complete and accurate information about current medical conditions and complaints, past illnesses, medications, and other issues relevant to care.
  6. Failure to adhere to the Midwestern University Clinics’ responsibilities as a patient or guardian of a patient, as outlined on the clinic website.
  7. Refusal of treatment and/or not following provider instructions.
  8. Failure to provide information about payment for services.
  9. Each clinic may individually make a decision to dismiss a patient. For example, a patient who fulfills criterion 4 may be dismissed from the Dental Institute, but might not be dismissed by the Eye Institute. Final decision for a patient dismissal is made by the Clinical Dean/Medical Director or their designee in each clinic.

Patients in the midst of a multi-step procedure may complete their treatment at the discretion of the Clinical Dean and be stable prior to dismissal. A dismissed patient will be allowed emergency care for 30 days from the date of dismissal and will be given a referral to another provider.

All Clinics Dismissal

  • A patient who exhibits drug seeking behavior, sexual or other forms of prohibited harassment, and/or use of abusive or derogatory language will be dismissed from all clinics. In the instance where the dismissed patient has a pet being seen at the Companion Animal Clinic, that pet will be dismissed from that clinic.
  • In the instance that the dismissed patient has a minor child and/or spouse being seen at a clinic, that minor child and/or spouse will be dismissed from the clinic.
  • A patient may be dismissed for failure to meet all financial obligations.

Appeal of Dismissal

Patients may appeal their dismissal to the appropriate Clinical Dean/Clinical Director or the Dean of the College or their designee for discussion and resolution. The Dean of the College will notify the Chief Academic Officer (CAO) immediately of a patient’s appeal referral. If the dismissal is upheld, patients are informed that they may appeal to the Chief Academic Officer of the respective college or clinic involved in the dismissal.
