What People Say About Dr. Barry Sheppard, MD
Reply
i'm sure the 5 stars were given by himself. barry sheppard spent a large amount of time on promoting himself as a top-tier surgeon, but on average, he does only 1 surgery per 30 calendar days, not to mention all he does were unsuccessful surgeries .
