Mark A. Schaeffer, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The practice of medicine today is a blend of science and the "art" of medicine. As a physician comes to understand a patient's health concerns and philosophical approaches to their health care, the physician is better eqipped to personalize care by artfully applying the available science of medicine with the patient's individual needs and desires. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, my mission is to stay abreast of the vast medical advances available today and optimize my opportunities to fully understand all of my patients' personal health concerns and to utilize these understandings to provide the most ideal, personalized health care possible.
