Care Philosophy

As a primary care physician, I believe in Benjamin Franklin's motto: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Mr. Franklin did not realize how much a "pound of cure" would cost today. I believe in a holistic approach to Health Care in which the body has the capacity to heal itself if homeostasis is achieved. We must be proactive in that the physician and patient are a team dedicated to disease prevention and quality of life improvement. Health is the utmost blessing from God.

in Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. DeShazo is the best doctor I have ever had. Years ago my pain management doctor at the time referred me to Dr. D, it was the best thing that's happened for me. Dr. DeShazo genuinely cares about each and every one of his patients, and takes the time to listen to everything that you tell him, and always helps. I am a medical assistant and I always refer our patients to Dr. D because of his amazing bedside manner, and how professional and caring he is.

Dr DeShazo was my physician for years. There will never be another Dr like him. He's very caring, and a good friend to our family. We have since moved to another state. I hope to be able to find someone that will take good care of our health needs as he did. He makes and takes the time to take care of each patient.

As others commented, I did have to wait a little long -but Dr. Deshazo was very personable, and struck me as exceptionally knowledgeable and compassionate. Additionally, he was very patient with me, taking the time to answer all me questions and explain things to my satisfaction -the complete opposite of a rush me in and out as quickly as possible mindset. From what I can see, his excellent reputation is well-deserved -GuitarMark in Las Vegas
