My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Achieving better health is my ultimate goal. 

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 healthcare goals. My personalized healthcare practice affords me extra time with patients to better understand what is 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. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. 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.

We have been with Dr Shell for approximately seven years now and are very happy with the care that we get. We love the way he listens to and cares about his patients. He takes the time to diagnose our problems and then treats them very aggressively. My wife and I feel that we are getting the best care possible with DR. SHELL.👍👍👍

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!
