WOOSTER – A longtime Cleveland Clinic physician may have chosen his career path as early as elementary school as a student at the former Beall Avenue School.

When he called himself Dr. Frank Cebul on some of his school work, his teacher had to remind him, “You are not your father.”

But by seventh grade, Frank Cebul III, son of the well-known and well-respected local surgeon Frank Cebul, was quite certain that would be the name he would carry as he aspired to be a physician.

After roughly 40 years of service in medicine, Dr. Cebul retired this summer and can proudly look back on a long and successful career.
