Dr. Schiffbauer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Schiffbauer "Dr. John Schiffbauer and his wife LeeAnn have resided in Springfield, Missouri since 2012 with their fun-loving golden retriever. Dr. Schiffbauer has two children, two stepsons and five grandchildren. He enjoys hiking, water activities, travel and reading. He is quite involved in his church and has participated in numerous international mission trips to Nigeria, Russia, Israel, Lebanon and Mexico. He will lead a medical mission trip to Haiti this coming fall. Dr. Schiffbauer has practiced pediatrics since 1977. He graduated from Creighton University (BS) in Omaha, Nebraska, and received his medical degree and completed his residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (MD) in Omaha, Nebraska. Dr. Schiffbauer is board certified with the American Board of Pediatrics and is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Schiffbauer began his medical practice in Omaha, Nebraska in 1977 in a private partnership. He joined the Methodist Physician's Clinic Regency out of Omaha in 1980, and was employed with them for over twenty years. A few years later, he left the clinic to work for Boys Town National Research Hospital in Omaha. Dr. Schiffbauer and his family then moved to Fremont, Nebraska where he was employed at KidCare, a top pediatric office in the area, for three years. In the mid 1980s, Dr. Schiffbauer accepted a position as a pediatrician with Cox Medical Center in Springfield, Missouri. He and LeeAnn moved to Springfield, where he practiced at Cox for two decades. In 2016, after one year of retirement, Dr. Schiffbauer met and became friends with Dr. Jonathan Clark, M.D., a private acute care physician in Springfield. Through their friendship, they discovered they had a similar vision of combining faith-based healing with medical science to provide an opportunity of healing and wholeness to all patients. Now, Dr. Schiffbauer is eager to resume his pediatric practice doing what he enjoys most, working with children and their parents."

Dr. Schiffbauer was amazing with my two kids when he practiced with CoxHealth. Hated to see him leave there, but so glad he is pursing private practice and other methods of wellness such as herbal supplements.
