“My experience in the care of Dr. Shea has truly been lifesaving at a time when I was feeling really stuck with my health. I have been suffering from an autoimmune disorder and every day was an uphill battle dealing with debilitating fatigue, joint paint and body aches. Thankfully, Dr. Shea has been able to turn things around for me so I can live the life I want to live.”
“I have found Dr. Shea to be a great blessing on my journey to better health. Her approach to wellness is based on finding the root cause of your illness and then supporting the healing process through diet, exercise, supplements etc.. She not only listens but I believe she genuinely cares about her clients. If you are similar to me and have been through the quick fix and symptom masking pills of modern medicine and still not well, give Dr. Shea a chance to help you. You will not be disappointed! My PCP respects Dr. Shea's treatments. I've been back for various ailments over the past 20+ years; each of which is met with a focused approach resulting in the desired result. Add in great conversation and a genuine caring attitude - truly a winning combination. I have recommended her many times to my friends.
“I have been struggling with IBS-D and fatigue for a very long time. I went to various doctors, tried different diets, medications, and my symptoms didn’t change and sometimes they worsened. It was very frustrating and kept me from doing many things. My life has changed in so many ways since seeing Dr. Shea. My IBS-D is now livable and is 100 times better. We work on whatever comes up with great results. Dr. Shea listens and acknowledges and makes your visit a pleasant one. The whole office is great. Johnny at the desk is pleasant and very efficient. I would recommend Dr. Shea to anyone looking for answers, a plan and results to better health.
