Excellent ability to assess the entire person, not just look at what your initial complaint might be. Has been invaluable to me.

Dr. Rudd is the most professional and most personable Doctor that I've ever had and I've had alot! He manages my health issues with diligence and care and will always go out of his way to make me feel like I'm truly cared about!

Review for Dr. Kenneth Rudd II, MD

For all my previous life, I was never a person to run to the doctor but when I suddenly needed medical help, Dr. Tim Shafer was there. He has also educated me -past my stubbornness-to be proactive, not reactive. Always personable and easy to talk with, I am glad Tim is my doctor.

This office is continually canceling or rescheduling appointments..... After being a patient for several years we have only seen him a handful of times. We are currently looking for a new doctor since one single appointment has been rescheduled for the third time..
