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.

Although he doesn't know it, he made our move less… See more

Dr. Sheff is an excellent primary care doctor. He is an excellent diagnostician and really listens to his patients. He returns phone calls and e-mails very quickly.

It is obvious to me that that Alan Sheff is a first rate physician who really csres for his patients. As an example, he takes all the time that one wishes on a visit, and has never given the impression that he has more important things to do. .

Just the peace of mind to know that one has a doctor that takes a personal interest in your health and well being is wonderful.
