Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shields "Because I often care for multiple members of a family, I am aware of how one person's health and well-being can affect other family members. It is important to connect with each patient on a personal level because each person is unique and deserves for their care to be individualized. with this, and good communication comes a mutual respect between patient and physician. I will do everything in my power to maintain the basic philosophy with which I was originally trained, to care for each patient as an individual and strive to always be their strongest advocate."

Dr. Shields has a great "bedside" manner. She is thorough in reviewing your medical history and working with you to meet your goals and needs. She takes the time to listen and doesn't "blow you off" when you have something come up.
