KAZIMIER G. CIESLAK, M. D. One of the physicians and surgeons of Cleveland who has won success in his profession
and prestige as a patriotic and worth while citizen is Doctor Cieslak, who has been in general practice on the
West Side of the city for the last ten years, and is director of the Health Clinic, the only clinic on that side.
Doctor Cieslak was born in the City of Posen, German Poland, on March 3, 1878, the son of Joseph and Josephine
Cieslak. His father died in the old country, his mother re-married, and with her husband and children came to this
country in 1890, when the doctor was a boy of twelve years. He had attended school in the old country, and he continued
his preliminary education in the public schools of Ludington and Manistee, Michigan, and of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
In the latter city he also took a course in college to prepare himself to enter medical college, and in 1906 he
entered the medical department of the University of Pittsburgh, where he was a student for two years, and then
entered the medical department of Ohio State University, where he was graduated Doctor of Medicine with the class
of 1913. Leaving Ohio State University he came to aeveland, and for a year served as interne in Cleveland City
Hospital, and then entered the general practice of medicine and surgery at 2297 West Fourteenth Street. For several
years he has specialized in X-ray work and in electro therapeutics. There being no clinic on the West Side, and
to supply such a much needed institution to that important section of the city, Doctor Cieslak, on May 1, 1924,
established the Health Clinic in the large and commodious residence property where he has so long maintained his
offices. The clinic is equipped with every modern appliance needed for such a purpose, and has a large staff of
skilled physicians and surgeons, all under the supervision of Doctor Cieslak as director. While the Health Clinic
is one of the newest of our medical institutions, its early days have been such as to justify the prediction of
its future success.
Doctor Cieslak is a prolific writer on the topic of public health, of which he is a close student, and is a frequent
and valued contributor to the press, he having been for some time furnishing weekly articles on the above subject
to a large Polish daily paper of Cleveland and also to the largest Polish daily of Detroit, Michigan.
Doctor Cieslak is a member of the Cleveland Academy of Medicine, the Ohio State Medical Association, the American
Medical Association and the Therapeutic Medical Association of America. He is active in all Polish American affairs,
and is a member of the Polish National Alliance, and a member and lecturer of the Polish Educational Society of
the city. He is a member of the leading Polish clubs, and is deeply interested in the welfare of his fellow countrymen,
giving freely of his time and experience to the end that they become consistent citizens of the city and county.
Doctor Cieslak married Miss Mary Ziawinski, who was• born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Ignatz Ziawinski,
a native of Poland, and to their marriage two sons have been born: Arthur, aged nine years, and Daniel, aged seven
