My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Growing up in the Midwest as the son of a registered nurse, my love of medicine began very early in life. I learned the importance of the personal relationship between provider and patient initially from my mother, and later through my training in family medicine and sports medicine. I truly believe it is my privilege to care for my patients. After nearly 20 years of practice in Brevard County, I now have the time and the tools I need to truly provide personalized care to each of my patients through my affiliation with MDVIP.  We will be partners in your future health, focusing together on wellness and preventive medicine to help lead you to our common goal of a long, healthy and happy life.  

With our goals in mind, I encourage an active lifestyle and a healthy diet, with the additional benefit of advanced screenings in our MDVIP Annual Wellness Program. 

My special interests include managing diabetes, heart disease, sexual health, and orthopedic and sports medicine issues, including joint injections. My MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments. I have developed many relationships with area specialists for local referrals and consultations, and I maintain privileges at Cape Canaveral Hospital and Rockledge Regional Medical Center.

from Crystal in FL February 10, 2024 for Shane Hernesman, MD, CAQSM

Dr. Hernesman is a very special person. Most places now are nothing more than pill mills. My doctor takes the time to listen to what I have to say and recommends medication based on both that and his knowledge. His office is supportive and responsive when he's not there. I have been with him since he first started practicing on Merritt Island and think the world of him. His prompt… See more
