Dr. Eric Shepherd is one of a kind doctor. I have the up most respect for him and his staff. Dr. Eric takes really good care of his patients, like if you were part of his own family. If you don't understand something about your injury, he does make you feel ignorant and will gladly explain anything especially a surgery. May God Bless Dr. Eric Shepherd and his kind staff. Amen.???????
