Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shore-Schein "Factors that precede or trigger a certain condition, especially a chronic disease, vary from person to person. At Sunshine Wellness we recognize that each patient is unique. That is why we focus on the patient rather than on the disease. Our "help the patient feel better" philosophy creates a comprehensive treatment plan using natural, effective and less-invasive interventions. Good medicine should be based on the latest science and be open to new paradigms."

What People Say About Dr. Lucille Shore-Schein, MD
Dr Shore-Schein was the ONLY Dr who actually welcomed & valued my personal investment into my health & treatment.

She's a 5, but getting in to see her was frustrating. The wait time was at least 1hr, and the waiting rm is cramped. The receptionists seemed friendly/helpful, but the doctor's assistant (forget the name - begins with an "A") was awful. Why doesn't she help her stay on time? She doesn't appear...Read More

Her office assistant in Swampscott is absolutely horrible (mean persona, won't respond to medicine refill requests, or forward messages to the doctor). She has a...Read More

She is a great doctor if you're looking for alternatives to medication. Unfortunately, i didn't find that we clicked and that's okay. She wanted me to go on a very strict diet but that is a very difficult thing for me to do and when i tried to explain this, we seemed to hit a wall. I had also...Read More

I saw her once and will be going to see her again soon. I am neutral at this time. I think she is knowledgeable and I like that - according to what some say - she doesn't prescribe too much meds, as I'd rather try healthy diet and natural remedies and excersize first. Based on my limited first time...Read More
