Making an appointment
To schedule an appointment for an initial consultation, you must speak with Ms. Shurtz or Dr. Grotte by calling (440) 461-7488 from 1pm to 7pm, E.S.T. on Mondays,Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
A package of forms and questionnaires, and an appointment card, will be sent out to you, along with a return envelope. An instruction sheet will review how the forms are to be completed, and will have information as to how you should prepare for your consultation.
Mail the completed forms to our office. We must receive them at least one week before your appointment to allow for careful review of the information provided. Because the history is such an important part of your consultation, we will have to reschedule your appointment if the paperwork is not returned on time, or is incomplete.
In addition, if the forms and questionnaire are returned promptly, we can place you on a waiting list (unless you do not wish this) so that you can be called and given the option to come on an earlier date should one open up before the one you have scheduled.
Our mailing address is: 5399 Mayfield Road, Lyndhurst, Ohio 44124.
Appointments for established and new patients are available in the afternoons and evenings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
The office is located at 5399 Mayfield Road in Lyndhurst. Mayfield road is also known as State Route 322. From Interstate 271, take the Mayfield Road West or 322 West exit, and continue West along Mayfield Road for 2.2 miles. Traffic moves briskly along Mayfield, so start paying attention once you cross Brainard Road. The office will be on your right just past a small street named "Gordon".
If you see the Lyndhurst Municipal Center on your right or go to Richmond road, you have gone too far West.
The office is a one story brick building with a blue and coral and magenta colored cupola on the roof. The door is coral and the frame is blue. In front there is a rather small black and white hanging sign hanging on a pole with text, "L.B. Grotte, M.D." and "Acupuncture Associates". The address, "5399" is white on a black background
Look for the colored cupola as you travel along Mayfield, as it is the easiest way to spot the building. The entrance driveway is exactly next to our building.
The parking lot has separate entrance and exit driveways. The entrance driveway is the Eastern one and the exit is the Western. Both are marked with signs. Please drive carefully as there will be pedestrians in the parking lot and walking along the driveways. The parking lot is shared with a dentist's office and a veterinarian, so you may also see animals with their owners in the lot.
Please review our Office Policies page.
Important Considerations When Considering Treatment
Potential patients should be realistic regarding the potentials for integrative medicine; no system of medicine can be expected to have instantaneous results in all situations. This is especially true when complex disorders of long standing are present.
Patients should expect that an initial series of treatments with acupuncture or other tools of alternative medicine will be necessary to determine how imbalances in the channels and systems of the body might be approached.

This is especially true with complex disorders present for many months.
