Robert L. Schiff, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The goal of my medical practice is to partner with my patients so together we can create an individualized path to wellness.  I always emphasize a healthy lifestyle and natural remedies first, but will judiciously use medications when necessary.  I also believe in being open-minded and I consider all possible choices, including Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine or any other modalities that I think can benefit my patient.
