Review for Dr. Shappard

She and her staff assisted me with some important health issues. She is a wonderful doctor and I highly recommend her if you have heart problems.

Review for Dr. Vloka

Intelligent, thoughtful, kind and calming. She’s an excellent diagnostician and she literally saved my life. She diagnosed that I needed a quadruple bypass three years ago and I’m 6 feet above ground now due to her and Dr. Fall, the surgeon.
