After traditional medicine had failed him both personally and professionally, Dr. David Sheridan turned to an alternative approach of medicine – one which treats patients to achieve health and wellness naturally.
Dr. Sheridan, a native of Clifton, New Jersey, graduated from the University of Arizona College of Medicine in 1985. As a 3rd year resident of Family Medicine, he had the opportunity to attend a convention for the American Association of Family Physicians. It was there that he first learned about the Pan American Allergy Society. Because he had always struggled with allergies since he was a child, the Society particularly piqued his interest. At that point, he chose to add allergies to his family practice repertoire.
Dr. Sheridan joined the Pan American Allergy Society shortly thereafter and served as Vice President and later, President. He is also a member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Sheridan went on to build a successful medical practice in Jacksonville, North Carolina, where he specialized in allergy medicine, working to enhance the immune systems of his patients. In addition to allergies, he also began treating thyroid disorders.
While he had a thriving medical practice, Dr. Sheridan had become increasingly dissatisfied with traditional medicine. In addition to treating allergy and thyroid disorders, he was also prescribing drugs — it seemed there was a drug on the market to match any of his patients’ symptoms. While he remained passionate about medicine, his main concern was that his patients achieve wellness by way of a natural approach instead of through the use of drugs.
Through his affiliation with the Pan American Allergy Society, Dr. Sheridan made the acquaintance of Dr. Hotze. He was particularly interested in the success that Dr. Hotze had achieved with his patients through his own practice. After exploring his options and realizing that his own goals and knowledge of allergy and thyroid problems were aligned with those of the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, he joined the staff as a physician in 2002.
