Philosophy of Care:
“I’ve always wanted to heal people, to help them move beyond the obstacles that keep them from living their best lives. I became a surgeon so I could do this not only with medicine, but also with my hands. There is no greater honor or happiness than when a terribly ill patient gets up to hold a loved one’s hand and is then able to walk out of the hospital because of what you did.”
Steven Schierling, M.D. is a Diplomate of and Board Certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
A childhood interest in science led Dr. Schierling to an interest in pre-med. An Anatomy class in college led to medical school and his first time in an operating room led to his surgery residency. For Dr. Schierling every day in the clinic or operating room leads to a greater fascination in the art of surgery.
