Dr Shell is a good doctor. Good bedside manners which are hard to find these days.
Calvin Brewer, thank you so much for the positive review! Although, here at AOC, we always strive for a 5 star. Is there some feedback that you would like to share so we can make improvements We are always more than happy to assist you if anything else comes up. Take care

Dr Shell and his staff did an excellent repair job on my broken ankle. One year post surgery and the joint alignment, repair plate, screws and pin are stable. I am very pleased with the great care they provided!
We at AOC are so pleased with your progress. Dr. Shell is an amazing surgeon and a fine gentleman. Your recommendation means so much to us and we're so happy to have earned it. Thank you again for taking the time to let the world know about your positive experience. Have a great day!

I wanted to say thank you to Dr. Shell for putting me back together. Being from out of town and needing surgery was scary. I have never had surgery before. I am 7 weeks in to recovery and my ankle and leg are doing well. I haven't had any issues with anything. Thanks again.

I took my daughter to Dr. Shell when she broke her foot. He was professional and both my daughter and I felt at ease with him. I would recommend him.
Hi there, thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us at Grantham M. Shell, MD. We're happy we could meet your expectations!

Based on the reviews, I was extremely reluctant about my appointment with the Dr., HOWEVER my experience was totally different. Dr. Shell greeted me with a handshake, proceeded to throughly explain my condition and the course of treatment. I found him to be cordial, polite, professional and down to earth.
Montgomery, AL |
I would not recommend this physician to anyone.

I went in to see Dr.Shell yesterday after being referred to him by an urgent care center. He has the bedside manner of a rattler. Not at all compassionate or helpful. I wouldn't allow him to treat my dog. He,in short, told me his neck hurts, too, and I should just deal with it;to see him again in 3 weeks. Oh, I shall deal with it, but I will not be returning to see him either.
