My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am passionate about helping my patients improve the quality of their lives by providing the most preventive healthcare possible. In my MDVIP-affiliated family medicine practice, you will receive personalized care, including a comprehensive wellness program and action plan, as well as access to online tools and resources on your personal health website. I will be your coach and partner, as well as your primary care physician, as you navigate your course to a healthier, happier life.

I am one of the few female physicians practicing in a concierge-style practice in Charlotte County, Florida and proud to be board certified by the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians. As a private doctor, I care for a limited number of patients – just a few hundred instead of the thousands that are typically a part of most primary care practices today. My smaller practice gives me extra time to work very closely with my patients to help them achieve optimum health.

I am an attending physician at Fawcett Memorial Hospital and Bayfront Medical Center. This means that when you are hospitalized, I will follow you throughout your stay, as I believe you should be cared for by the physician who knows you best – me.

My practice serves all of Charlotte County, including Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Arcadia, Boca Grande and Rotonda West.

Dr. Stephanie Shell is always there for my husband and myself. She treats our
aches and pains, helps keep us well, and refers us to great specialists. Dr. Shell
noticed when a doctor gave Jerry a prescription that would negatively affect his heart rate and blood pressure and solved the problem. Thank you Dr. Stephanie for all you do for the Massey family!!

from Patricia in FL June 30, 2015 for Stephanie J. Shell, DO

Dr. Stephanie Shell is totally remarkable! In my 64 years this is the first physician who listens - who accepts that I understand when something is wrong with my body she interjects with her expertise to make a proper diagnosis and to treat aggressively for a quick response- explaining everything that she is prescribing.. I recently have had a few issues- inability to lose weight, type 2… See more

from Joanne in FL February 10, 2015 for Stephanie J. Shell, DO

I was a patient of my doctor before she became a member of MDVIP. She has always been caring and genuinely concerned about my health. I now love having the ability to contact her at any time with questions or concerns--especially in the case of emergencies, as I had this past summer, in a different state, and have her respond almost immediately. It's very reassuring.

from Marilyn in FL February 7, 2015 for Stephanie J. Shell, DO

Dr Stephanie Shell has been my Dr for many years. I feel that she has always been there for me and the level of care has always been the best. I can say I trust her with my health and wellbeing. I love that she is a DO Dr. that listens and
discusses all my concerns. The best feeling comes from the hug at the end of my visit with her.
