Shannon Ray Schrader, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I chose to practice family medicine in order to have the opportunity to develop close and personal relationships with my patients. The continuity of care enables me to gleen insight into my patients' lives and the circumstances that may impact their overall health and well-being. My patients are my family members and deserve the best. My philosophy is for my patients to play an active role in their care, and as an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am able to easily achieve this. Medicine is an art, and time and compassion cannot be overemphasized.
