Dr. Shepherd's Care Philosophy

The diagnosis of specific painful structures is essential whenever possible, providing interventional procedures that are likely to be successful in treating those conditions. Patient education throughout the course of treatment is essential to better understand the causes of their pain, the treatments we offer, and recognizing their role in achieving successful outcomes. Best outcomes are obtained when patients are determined to actively participate in improving their own health, including improved fitness, sleep, and learning new skills that aid in the management of anxiety and stress. It is inspiring to observe when our patients have made important changes in these areas. Our patients are often astonished to look back and see how much of a difference these changes have made in improving their pain and function. We offer hope for improved pain and restored function.

in Bountiful Utah |
Id been told from the U of U pain management nothing was wrong with my upper back/neck area and it was only muscles and they were more worried about taking me off my current medications are literally refused to do an MRI. Dr Shepherd did the MRI and I need surgery on C6-7 or Ill be paralyzed from the waste down. Dont got to the University but Dr Shepherd will find the problem. His staff are really great too.
in South Ogden UT |
Dr Shepherd and his staff are awesome. He took the time to explain the reason for my back pain and how he could treat it. He spent a lot of time asking questions as well as answering mine. I would say my pain is 90% better and I am off all pain medication. He is a great doctor.
