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."
