Dr Shelton explains everything very well.spends time talking to his patients in detail on what he is going to do.had 3 different pain Doctors in past 6 years he is the BEST i have seen!!

Dr Shelton is an amazing pain specialist! I was referred to him by a neurosurgeon about 7 years ago. Prior to seeing Dr Shelton I honestly had been subjected to numerous painful treatments which provided no relief, I was just suffering miserably and losing hope. From the first day I met with him, I was literally pain free for the first time in four years! I highly recommend Dr Shelton! He is knowledgeable, highly skilled, very communicative and personable, too! Be pain free with his help!

Dr. Shelton was wonderful! Very caring and easy to talk too, he explained everything to me in detail and really included me in the treatment decisions. His staff was very caring and treated me with the most respect. Would highly recommend this physician.

Dr. Shelton has been the only Physician that I have ever met who has taken the time to listen and determine the cause of my daily pain. He has given me a new lease on life, and my pain has improved drastically with minimally invasive procedures. He is simply awesome.

Dr Shelton, is very smart. He both listed and explained all of my options very thoroughly. He was very caring and compassionate during my procedures. He has changed my life and helped my pain tremendously. Such a fine young man. I highly recommend him for everyone in chronic pain!!
in Ballwin, MO |
The BEST pain specialist in the area! I'm a retired family practice physician who has had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Shelton for the past 8 years. I have a complex pain problem secondary to failed back surgery and he has helped me tremendously with injections and a spinal cord stimulator. While Dr. Shelton is extremely bright and talented, he is extraordinarily kind and compassionate as well. If you have back or neck pain I strongly recommend that you see Dr. Shelton--the Doctor's Doctor!!!
in Wentzville, MO |
I waited in his office for one hour forty five minutes, and left. he also preformed a procedure and did not tell me it could cause me not to walk again. was always in a hurry and did not give me time to explain the problems I was having.
