Dr. Cindy Shieh, a New Jersey native, studied Human Biology and Health at Cornell University, where her interest in medicine started. She graduated in 2007 and spent the next two years as a data analyst at Boston Medical Center delving into the world of autism and "Reach Out and Read". During that time, her interest in medicine was apparent and further enhanced by experiences with influential medical professionals. Dr. Shieh then attended Touro University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Nevada and graduated in 2010. She returned to New Jersey where she completed a family medicine residency program at Morristown Medical Center and more importantly, spent time with her family. She relocated to Texas to join her fiancé in hopes of accomplishing another dream of hers which is to start a family.
