Dr Shepard performer surgery on my bunion 6 days ago. I was told it’s a horrible painful procedure. I must say the pain I experienced post op was minimal, the scar at the initial post op visit looked 100x better than anticipated and so far I could not be happier with my decision to have this done by dr. Shepard. I understand the recovery is lengthy, especially for a very active person like me, but so far I’m very pleased I finally made the decision to do it. And I would definitely recommend dr Shepard for anyone.

Dr. Shepard herself is a 5-star doc. I felt that she really worked to understand why I was visiting, and offered me an appropriate treatment. However, I feel I need to leave a 1-star review to draw attention to a billing concern I have with the office, and as a warning to anyone considering this office to be equipped with your EOB). No fewer than 3 times, including upon arrival for my appt after "resolving" the day before, was I asked to pay the amount over the CON

I have found Dr. Shepard to be highly knowledgeable, an excellent diagnostician, plus kind and easy to talk to. Have seen her several times over the years, referred my mother to her, who received equally great care.

She knows what's doing, explains my condition, is friendly and courteous, utilizes her staff well and refers me to other providers when she feels that is appropriate.

I would not recommend Dr Shepard to others based on my recent experience in December, 2015. She and her assistant appeared disinterested in helping me with my issue and anxious to leave the examining room. They gave me some sample pads to use in my shoes, told me it was important to place it in the right place in my shoe but did not show me where to place it. I walked into the appointment feeling very positive about getting some help for my issue and left feeling very disappointed.
