Patient Reviews (2)
Chino Valley, AZ |
Dr. Shepard's common sense approach to medical/neurological practice is quite refreshing. He speaks plainly and conveys his findings in a strong and compassionate fashion.
in Prescott AZ |
He has helped me for five years or more. Down to earth medicine. No frills. Sought him out after seeing another neurologist in Prescott who was very impressed by himself and offered me no relief, only smug attitude. Would highly recommend Dr Shepard to friends and family!
