Great job trying to keep me on track to better health .
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
As a board-certified physician in osteopathic family medicine, I view my role in your life as your healthcare advocate, coach and guide. I am able to help you navigate our complex healthcare system by using the latest medical information and tools made available through my affiliation with MDVIP.
With skill, experience, knowledge, compassion and a focus on wellness and prevention, I'll work with you to help you achieve your best health. My personalized healthcare practice, similar to a concierge medical practice, affords me extra time with patients to understand everything happening in their lives that can affect their health. I see a limited number of patients in order to devote my full attention to their needs - inside and outside of the office. I firmly believe that if you are hospitalized, the physician who knows you best is the physician you want to see if you are in the hospital. I follow patients at Fawcett Memorial Hospital and Bayfront Medical Center and will be available for you and your family.
My practice serves all of Charlotte County, Florida, including Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Arcadia, Boca Grande and Rotonda.
Let's work together to take your personal healthcare to a new level.

Dr. Shell takes the time to discuss any issue you might have. He also works to get an answer, which makes him an incredible advocate in the current medical environment.
Dr. Shell is very helpful at finding the cause(s) of any ailments I may have and
decides the best remedies for me whether they be medications or changes in my life-style. He is considerate, understanding and a good listener which are the reasons I believe I am under the supervised care of a great physician!
I cannot even begin to say how much Dr. Steve means to me, as he has been amazing with my dad as he has had MANY issues and still does. Dr. Steve and his staff are always there when we need him. Need I say more :)
I respect and admire Dr. Stephen Shell as he takes an interest in me as an individual. Also I consider him a personal friend. He is genuinely interested in my continued good health and contributes his expertise to keeping me that way.
