About Offices of David S. Shields, MD

About Us

David S. Shields, MD is a Board Certified Gastroenterologist with his private consultative office located directly across from Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto, California. He has provided quality medical care to the Bay Area community at this location for 20 years. We welcome both patients that seek our care directly and patients that are referred by other physicians.

Dr. Shields performs procedures at varying locations depending upon your insurance. The majority of procedures are performed in the comfort of Waverley Surgery Center in Palo Alto. Patients with Medicare are performed primarily at Stanford Hospital and some at El Camino Hospital. If hospitalization is required he admits his patients at Stanford Hospital.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide expert, personalized gastroenterology care in a comfortable, compassionate environment. To achieve this goal Dr Shields utilizes the most advanced technologies in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy that are available at a major tertiary care medical center such as Stanford. However, we have the unique ability to maintain the accessibility, convenience, and warmth of a private office setting. We want our patients to know that they are important and well cared for as an individual with the most effective treatments available.
