    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Old style family doctor, rarity these days

I previously saw a doctor who was part of a medical group at Largo Med and having to wait to get an appointment for days only to wait another 1+ hr to see the doctor (assembly line medicine), it was quite refreshing to have an actual doctor's office with a staff that communicates with you, who treats you well and genuinely cares about their patients. We actually got a follow up call after my daughter went there for a sprained wrist asking how she was doing. Won't get that at some medical center or walk in clinic! Kind of the way things used to be. Dr. Shields spends a great deal of time with patients and one never feels rushed to see the next patient. I have had very good care from Dr. Shields and his staff. Dr. Shields has priviledges at Morton Plant and other area hospitals. Morton Plant is within close walking distance so visiting a hospitalized patient is no big deal. Kudos to Doc Shields and his staff...

Top Pinellas County Doctor

Doctor Shields is by far the best and most caring physician I have ever had. He is very accurate in his diagnosis and gets right to the core of the problem. He takes his patients concerns into his treatment plan. His bedside manners are superb and the hospital staff always have great things to say about Dr. Shields.
