in Irmo, SC |
He told me I had cancer after a short exam. Twelve days/ 288 hours...I worried. Cried. Planned. The Pathology report came back to say I didn't have cancer. Why would any doctor in this professional say such without a confirmed report.
in Columbia, SC |
Very friendly caring and compassionate my wife and I will always trust Dr. Sheppe. His staff is very friendly and professional

If you have an issue, this is the man to see.
in Pelion, SC |
I have had a few colonoscopies by Dr. Sheppe. Best experience with these by him out of the other 4 I've had. It doesn't hurt and I don't get sick. I have never been charged extra and he always has several polyps to remove. He is the only Dr. I trust for these procedures and I hope I find someone to do as good of a job as he has done when he retires.

Went for a preventative colonoscopy which with United healthcare should be free . Found polyps removed . Office of Dr. Sheppe charged us around $500 extra . Two previous colonoscopies in last 10 years we are at the polyp removal from other doctors cost us zero . Will never recommend this doctor .
