Meet Shanda R. Dorff, MD
To me, family medicine offers the best of all worlds - I get to see people of all ages at all stages of life, and I get to really know the patients and their families. I have the privilege of working together with patients to help them be as healthy as possible to continue to enjoy all of life's moments. Medicine is a career path where there is frequent change with new information and research, so I am constantly learning and remain fascinated. Each day is new and every patient is different, so there is never a dull moment. I perform procedures, help patients understand their health and options, answer questions and provide comfort when needed. In my opinion, this is the only specialty that truly fits me, and I love my calling.
I always want my patients to feel comfortable talking to me about anything. I am here to help, listen, advise, manage symptoms and diseases, and care. There is no judgment, and you may always see me in person, talk over the phone or send me a message through the clinic's electronic system. I am here for you.
Outside of my practice, I enjoy spending time with my family (furry babies included) and friends. I am proud to be a mom and wife. I write poetry, listen to music, exercise, play outdoors and read. I also belong to the Ladies Auxiliary VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars).
I am a member of the following professional associations:
* American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP)
* American Medical Association (AMA)
* American Medical Women's Association (AMWA)
* Minnesota Medical Association (MMA)
* Omicron Delta Kappa Honor Society
