Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sheff "I believe the privilege of caring for patients with surgical diseases to be one of the most amazing things a physician can do. The acuteness of surgical pathology, along with the rapid recovery many patients experience (especially with laparoscopic surgery) can be truly miraculous. I am a physician who experiences the greatest joy from diseases I can help cure or put into remission, such as many types of cancer, obesity, biliary pathology, reflux disease, and hernia disorders."
