Richlands, VA |
Very friendly, answered all my questions and gave me advice to help my problem. She also scheduled tests to evaluate my problem.
Scottsville, VA |
Brisk, does not read your chart or have any clue of medical history. She prescribed medications I could not take on 2 occasions. This is when I stopped seeing her. She brushes off concerns and grins and smiles and is in and out in 5 minutes.

She does not listen to you, she does not do any test. I was trying to tell her what was happening to me she played off like I didnt know what I was talking about. I worked in a doctors office 11 years and I've also had EMT training in the past. I was worried about a stroke, MS, anurisium, or something else but she said not at my age... My sister died of MS at 44. Stroke and everything else runs in my family and I've also have cancer for a third time.
Wise, VA |
I was referred to Dr. Sheld for bilateral foot drop. I was told it was a back injury. I was concerned that it was not and ask about MS, ALS, and a few other diseases. Her response was I'm 99% sure it's not ALS or MS. After 2 and a half months with this doctor I was finally sent to a university hospital and was diagnosed with ALS. Do not waste your time with her. I was only evaluated one time at the first visit and she did not seem concerned about it even though my symptoms became worse.
New York, NY |
When she first entered the exam room she was forcibly friendly. I felt as though she was making light of my health concerns because of her constant grinning and brush offs. None of my questions or concerns were addressed directly. She is very talented at avoidance! My family member who accompanied me tried asking questions also, and got nothing but runaround answers. It was a very frustrating visit. I would not recommend her to anyone! My first and last visit! Not worth the drive or the copay!
Very rude and doesn't take time with you doesn't listen to you she in and out and don't tell you anything except a piece of paper of her cost for 5 mins not worth it
