Three years ago I went to my checkup with Dr. Stuhring and he sent me to see a cardiologist. This all led to me getting open heart surgery to fix my Mitral valve. The cardiologist said that if I didn't do anything I would have about a year to live. I am so glad that Dr. Stuhring was diligent and sent me to see the cardiologist. I believe that this did save my life and has given me a new… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
Practicing good medicine includes a partnership between doctor and patient – a partnership based on mutual trust and respect that is earned, not given. As an MDVIP-affiliated family practice physician, I have more time to develop close relationships with my patients, carefully review records and preform comprehensive exams. We will work as a team and formulate a wellness plan that will help you achieve your health goals. There are no short cuts to being healthy and no simple formulas or “one-size-fits-all” approaches when it comes to the well-being of each individual patient. My primary care practice, similar to a concierge medical practice, provides the level of care that can make a happy, healthy future, your reality.
With nearly 35 years of practicing in our community, I have trusted relationships with many specialists to help you with your unique needs. I will continue to use advances in medical imaging and health risk assessment above the healthcare standard. I have an interest in researching, in even more depth, supplements, hormones, brain function and other holistic approaches in promoting a healthy long life.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Stuhring
Dr. Stuhring has been my primary care physician on-and-off for nearly 30 years! He's incredibly easy to talk to, understanding, and thoughtful. With the new MDVIP program, it provides him the opportunity to be even more attentive than he already was. He's the best!
I have a good story for this week. I have laryngitis since last Friday. Yesterday, 4 days in, I started to get very sick with coughing up green stuff and tremendous body aches, fever, and getting really side. I called Dr Stuhring and he took my call. He got me on the right meds and 24 hours later, I feel much much better. It will take a few days but wow, that was service. I had fallen… See more
Thank you for almost 30 years of care and kindness. Coming in for an appointment with you is more like visiting a friend than a doctor. Your knowledge has helped me through many aches, pains and an anxiety disorder among many others. I hope our relationship continues for many years. I'm looking forward to exploring MDVIP with you as we muddle through our golden years.
We moved to this area in 1988 and found Doctor Sthuring. He was a much younger doctor as were we his patients. He has been there for us as our children have grown and had their own children. He has never failed to take care of us and with great kindness. Whenever I go to see him, I always feel that he listens to me and cares.
Dr. Stuhring has been my primary physician for close to 20 years. During that time he has diagnosed and supervised treatment of a malignant melanoma, Afib, Bells Palsy, and other mishaps. The breadth of his experience and his care are exemplary.
Doctor Stuhring has been our family doctor for about 25 years.
He has always been spot diagnosing the problems, no matter how rare and complicated they were.
We trust his opinion and expertise without reservation.
I have been going to Dr. Stuhring now for nearly 25 years and have stuck with him even when he moved his practice and now that he is with MDVIP. I had a couple of other Dr's that I had worked with but I always considered Dr. Stuhring my primary for a few reasons. First, he truly cares and is a Dr. who knows how to communicate with his clients so they feel he is truly taking an interest… See more
