I was referred by my Orthepedic Dr to Dr Shelton in 2015 & 2016 after an auto accident I was left with extreme nerve damage & chronic pain to my Right heel, ankle, foot & leg & other injuries. The diagnosis CRPS! I had another pain manager I saw regularly who was less aggressive. Dr Shelton is marvelous & helped me tremendously with his procedures I qualified for. I recommend him if you experience chronic pain & want to get up & live life & willing to work with him! Dr Shelton is GREAT!

Dr. Shelton has been treating my pain for several years. He is hands down my favorite doctor I have ever had. He truly cares about his patients and only does what he thinks will work for them. He takes the time to explain everything and answers any questions I might have. His nurse Alice is always so welcoming and very knowledgeable. They have a lifetime patient in me that's for sure.

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 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.

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!!!
