Dr. Shepard is absolutely amazing. He answers all of my questions and puts aside any fears I may have about any situation. He is straight forward and I like that about him. I always had a specific doctor at Carle but when she was no longer doing obgyn, I got recommended to Shepard and I'm so glad I did. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking...
