Dr. Shields didn't seem the least bit interested in my concerns. Dr. Shields & his nurse were complete opposite. They went as far as talking about me rudely in the hallway before seeing me in the room. I have suffered from environmental and food allergies & asthma for 37 years. My concerns were that I may have developed new ones. He informs me I don't have allergies & that he won't test me for anything. I will NOT recommend him to anyone!!

Not only did he not listen to anything that I said to him but he walked in the exam room with his mind made up that he couldn't help. He was demeaning and arrogant. Heaven forbid he listen to his patients since they live in their own bodies.
