Hal Sheeler, of Lebanon, a Realtor with Century 21 Energy Shield Realty, has been recognized by U.S. Medical Specialties Inc., an international health care consulting firm, as “MD Preferred” for his service to physicians. MD Preferred Services, an online resource center for doctors and other health care professionals, works with community-based professionals to help medical providers attract and retain physicians and medical staff. Sheeler has been with Century 21 Energy Shield Realty since 2001. “I am pleased with the recognition I have received,” Sheeler said in a news release. “In an environment of critical physician shortage, we understand that most physicians considering a career in the Upper Valley will make their decision based partly on lifestyle issues. The last thing we want to have happen is for that prospective physician to go elsewhere because the local support services he or she needed were not available, were unreliable or did not meet the expectations of the physician.”
