    Most compassionate and thorough Doctor! I had so many questions and Dr Shields was so wonderful and it's obvious to me that he loves what he does. I had a wonderful experience with his office staff and Sarah, his ultrasound technician was very professional. Dr Shields came very highly recommended and I have a few mom friends that love Dr. shields too! A lovely office with the latest state of the art equipment. Thank You Dr. Shields!!
