Extremely upset with my interactions with Dr. Shepherd. He was rude, unsympathetic and has horrendous bedside manner. I don’t care how long he’s been practicing, he doesn’t deserve my business along with anyone else’s.

I went to him hoping I could get some help with nerve pain I am having with herniated discs. My herniations are mild, and I felt like because I didn’t have anything major wrong he discounted the pain I was experiencing. The nerve pain I have is debilitating. He barely made eye contact with me, and I waited an hour in the waiting room, and then another 30 min in the room. He left me with the impression that he didn’t believe that I was in pain, and that I was wasting my time.

After being in pain with a neck injury for 4years Dr. Shepherd fixed the problem. He gave me a trigger point injunction. He also showed me how to move to not aggravate the problem. This reduced the pain levels so that I was able to begin an exercise program that strengthened my muscles to support the spine. That in turn, cleared up my neck, back problems completely.
