About Us

Our Mission

Dr. Szczepanski and her team are on a mission to change the face of medicine and believe that the future of healthcare is not only found in a prescription bottle.  Where science alone falls short, the art of medicine effortlessly fills in the gaps by providing true individualized “whole-person” care; ultimately placing the highest value on the patient-doctor relationship.  This philosophy is truly what defines and sets apart the practice at DS Family Medicine.

Our Approach

Dr. Szczepanski’s staff numbers are more than 20 – her second family, and now she is excited to announce the addition of her new physician, Dr. Spencer Pinion.

“The goal of all my endeavors is to meet each patient in their personal journey by ultimately providing a unique look into their individual needs with regard to understanding how their body is made; and to provide a place where they feel supported and cared for as family—one patient, one plan at a time.” – Dr. Devan Sczcepanski
