About the Author:

To provide exceptional care, Dr. Shane Stephenson believes it is crucial to build a relationship based on honest and open communication. Every person has fears about his or her health, and his mission is to address every concern in order to form an accurate diagnosis. Listening also allows him to learn about the person’s job, habits and personal issues, further allowing him to find the root cause of a problem.

"I don't want the visit to be terrifying," said Dr. Stephenson. "We're here for prevention and wellness. I may find things that are wrong, but we're going to work together to come up with a solution or make the best of it. I like to be open and talk about things. Family medicine allows me to guide a family through difficult situations and help manage their health care."

Having gone through a difficult time in his youth, he recognizes that an ill person's loved ones also experience stress. He is dedicated to guiding entire families through tough medical problems and ensures they know he will be there for them every step of the way.

Dr. Stephenson went on to complete medical school at the St. Louis University School of Medicine. He later completed his residency training at Mercy Medical Center. Today, he is a family medicine doctor at Methodist Physicians Clinic HealthWest.
