Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shepherd "Dr. Shepherd and his entire staff care about the health and well being of their patients. Everyone is kind, friendly and well trained. They strive to make the visit a very pleasant experience. Also, in an effort to reduce costs when medication is indicated Dr. Shepherd is a strong advocate of using generics (quality medications whose patents have expired). He has found they are usually very effective."
