Patient Comments (1)
in Grosse Pointe, MI |
I was recommended to Dr. Shepard him by another vascular surgeon that did not perform the surgery I needed. He confirmed the diagnosis and put me on a course of medication prior to my surgery. He explained each and every detail of the surgery. He is detailed and very well respected in his field. He is a doctor's doctor. Do not hesitate to have confidence in his recommendations and courses of action.
