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.

So happy my late husband and I followed Dr. Sheff to MDVIP when he joined years ago..
He continues to be honored each year on “The Best Doctors” lists.
He helped us over the years navigate some very serious health issues . His patience, skill and knowledge with me now that I am an aging widow. are extraordinary. Don’t know what I’ll do when he retires.

Dr. Sheff has been great. Always available by e-mail, phone, or a same-day appointment. Has been reachable after hours or on weekends.
