Stephen Shield, M.D.

  • NPI Number:

Dr. Shield grew up in Newport News with severe asthma. His experiences with the wonderful doctors and nurses who took great care of him during those difficult times stimulated his interest in medicine, so it was only natural that he chose a career in Allergy and Immunology.

He feels fortunate to have trained with some of the most outstanding allergists in the country. That training, combined with his own personal experiences, gives him the ability to provide a level of care that is difficult to find elsewhere. He is honored to have been named by his peers as a Hampton Roads “Top Doc” in Allergy and Immunology on numerous occasions.

He has been happily married to his wife, Kathy, since 1988. They have four really cool, interesting children, all of whom have allergies! He loves spending time with his family and enjoys the challenge of playing a decent round of golf every once in a while.
