Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Scheffel "It is the Osteopathic physicians job to find health. I believe in Osler's quote that "it's more important what kind of person has a disease than what kind of disease a person has. I believe in true patient centered care and approaching problems from a positive standpoint. I am skilled at hands on osteopathic diagnosis and treatment using all medical and supportive tools at my disposal. I honor the private nature of the physician - patient relationship."
