Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shields "To me, caring for patients means "listening first" and being supportive and empathetic at all times.  These are goals I constantly work on to improve.  I want to help patients heal physically, emotionally, and mentally.  I believe in the power of prayer and, as a Christian, pray regularly for my patients.  I believe in the utmost importance of integrity, honor, honesty, and character.  I value my patients' trust and covet to be considered their friend as well as doctor/surgeon.  "
