Dr. Shute was inspired to become a physician, by a childhood spent helping to care for her ill grandmother, and observing the needs of the patients in her underserved community at her father’s medical practice. Recognizing that a patient’s story does not end with their diagnoses and medication lists, Dr. Shute is dedicated to caring for the whole person. By providing a thorough visit, with an emphasis on counseling and education, she helps empower her patients to get and stay healthy. Warm, patient, and compassionate, she puts patients at ease and creates a safe haven for any questions or concerns they may have.

A south Bronx native, Dr. Shute is fluent in Spanish. She and her husband have two daughters. When not at IMM, she loves spending time with her family, and enjoys traveling, cooking, and baking.
