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.

from Carolyn in WV March 1, 2018 for Alan R. Sheff, MD

Dr. Sheff has been my doctor for over 30 years and he is one of the most considerate, dedicated and knowledgeable doctors I've had.

from Christy in MD March 1, 2018 for Alan R. Sheff, MD

Dr. Sheff reminds me of a doctor many people won't remember--Marcus Welby., who tried to treat people as individuals in an age of specialized medicine and uncaring doctors. Dr. Shefff is that kind of doctor. I recall the first time I was seen by Dr. Sheff I thought I was taking up too much of his time and said so to him. He told me that I should take all the time I needed. Now Dr.… See more

Dr. Sheff is my doctor and was also my mother's doctor before she passed away in 2014. His kindness and caring is evident in every visit.

with Doctor Sheff for many years. I have followed him from his office in

from Robert (Karen) in MD February 28, 2018 for Alan R. Sheff, MD

We turned to Dr. Sheff because my husband had multiple conditions managed by different specialists. It was too much for us to handle even with my husband being a physician himself. We needed someone to coordinate and having known Dr. Sheff since he started private practice and to whom we referred several patients, we knew he was the one we could turn to. And we were right. Dr. Sheff… See more
