Alan R. Sheff, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Being an MDVIP-affiliated physician allows me more time with each of my patients to get to know them beyond what brings them into my office. Being able to develop close and personal relationships with my patients enables us to work together to create their individualized wellness plans. I encourage my patients to take an active role in managing their health risks so they can achieve their wellness goals every year.
