SEDONA |
The worst office encounter in my professional experience as a doctor. Office staff & doctor were rude, unprofessional and threatening. Showed up for scheduled appointment and was turned away after filling out paperwork. Refused to return copies of insurance, driver license and personal patient...more

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.

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!
