Board certified in family medicine, Dr. Shuherk's career began while he was studying for his bachelor's degree at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. While studying toward that degree, he was sent to Saudi Arabia where he served as a Marine corpsman in Desert Storm. During his tour, he performed medevacs and worked as a surgical technician. He later received his medical degree from the Roy and Lucille Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, Iowa.

After receiving his medical degree, Dr. Shuherk spent five years in Iowa working in rural medicine. While running his own practice, he also helped serve the medical needs of the town's nursing home. Looking to give back to men and women who serve in the U.S. military, he next worked with veterans in an outpatient clinic setting. Dr. Shuherk also practiced medicine in both an urgent care facility and as a concierge family physician. Each experience allowed Dr. Shuherk to develop a personal medical practice that facilitates building lasting relationships with each of his patients.

"I love family medicine. I am passionate about building relationships with my patients and discussing their concerns without any judgment. I try to give them valuable information so we can sit down and have an open discussion about their health."

Dr. Shuherk's varied medical background has influenced his areas of clinical interest including geriatrics, mental health and pediatrics. Currently, he is working on his occupational medicine certification.

In his spare time, Dr. Shuherk and his partner enjoy fitness training their golden retriever, dining at all of the restaurants Denver has to offer and traveling.

Patient Reviews (20)

Dr. Ed is empathetic and thoughtful. He makes me feel like a valued patient and not like a number or just another appointment on his schedule.


Dr. Shuherk is the best doctor I've ever had. he listens, cares, helps, and knows his trade. He's also up to date on new studies and medicine. He also talks to others in his industry to share experiences and learnings. He never stops learning.


I love Dr. Shuherk. He remembers everything I tell him, always makes sure my health is in pristine condition and I've literally never met a better doctor.


*Dr. Shuherk is awesome!


I absolutely love Dr. Shuherk.


Dr Shuherk is a great Dr but he talks way too much. He's always late because he's with another patient talking their ear off and then when he gets to you he talks your ear off. You have to sit and listen to him tell you all about his partner and personal life and on and on and then finally he starts focusing on your needs. All of this after having to wait just to get into see him after driving all the way out to Lakewood in the middle of nowhere. Great Dr and nice guy but needs to focus on being more punctual and respectful of peoples time. This is not a social visit, it's my health care appt. I'm moving and going to find another Dr in my area so I won't be dealing with it anymore and wish him the best. Other than that, he's awesome in so many ways.


Great service and care from all personal.


I was very disappointed with the way this was handled.


Everything is always great


as always as pleasant as can be expected experience at the doctor's office
