About Dr. Shevtziv

Philosophy of care

I’m a primary care physician, so I treat the patient as a whole and address all needs, whether physical, mental or social. Specialists such as cardiologists may specifically treat the heart, or pulmonologists may treat the lungs. Primary care physicians treat the whole body from top to bottom. We identify the nature of the problem and address it or, if called for, are able to refer a patient for more specialized care. I enjoy what I do because I like to help patients and prevent diseases before they start.

Why I entered medicine

I wanted to help people and I like to interact face-to-face, so I always had a passion for medicine. It’s rewarding to help someone directly with my skills, mind and know-how, so to speak. And I like the long-term relationships that come with primary care. I treat people from ages 16 to 90 or even 100, and I get to know their families and kids. It’s very rewarding to take care of entire families.

Community involvement

I sing in a church choir and am involved in church life. I like to sing and enjoy music in general.

Personal interests

I enjoy skiing in winter and playing soccer in summer. I belong to a recreational soccer league of people above 40. We’ve been playing together for more than 12 years, mostly on weekends. For skiing, I like to go out West to the Rockies. I pick a different place each year, such as Big Sky, Montana, Snowmass, Colorado, Snowbird, Utah, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and go for a week at a time. Locally, I enjoy taking my kids to Blue Mountain and Camelback.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
