Dr. Sheppard is fantastic! From the first moment we met him, we felt very comfortable with him, and felt like he knew what he was doing. He is very compassionate and caring, and he takes time to answer your questions. Of all of the doctors I have dealt with, not just at OHSU but all of my life, Dr. Sheppard is my favorite. He also has a great team. We were more than satisfied with him and his team. They were great.
