I've been seeing Dr Sheppard for years for my thyroids and diabetes he is an excellent and caring understanding physician he takes his time and goes out of his way to make sure I stay on track...

This is an excellent doctor. Great bedside manners. Takes his time to listen to his patients He is very accurate with his diagnosis and treatments. Can't say enough good things about him. It's a shame his front office staff makes people walk away. The phones are never answered. In order to schedule an appointment you actually have to go in person. If documents are faxed they never receive them. I'm sure the doctor doesn't really know what's happening in the front. Its really a shame

I have tried over a week to schedule an appointment with this office. I was advised to fax over my lab reports which is absurd. No other office that I called to inquire about appointments, required this. The receptionist has an attitude and is not helpful at all. Don't even bother emailing their office, no has the courtesy to reply. Office staff needs retraining and a refresher course to treat current and new patients better. Luckily I found another Endocrinologist where I easily made an appt.

After seeing many doctors , Dr Shephard was able to finally diagnose me with PCOS . Under his care my quality of life has changed 100% for the better . His staff has always been attentive and helpful to me . I understand that waiting to see a Dr . Can be stressful but to me the small inconvenience is worth the results I have gotten . I highly recommend Dr . Shephard to anyone who asks me for a reference .

Waste of time is all I can say to sum it up. I was told in order for him to help I needed to get sick again and have full blown hyperthyroidism. It was a waste of time and money to have even went. He could of told me that on the phone when his office staff made me fax lab work and ultrasound to his office before scheduling an appointment.

The doctor was with me 5 minutes after waiting almost 1 hour on the wating room They made me fill out a form and made me the same questions again to put in a computer , a waste of my time They don't answer the phones and it is a nightmare to obtain responses

Great Experience both Dr's. Dr.Aguilar and Dr. Shephard are amazing.
I have no problem with the Doctor per se. My problem is with the office. Two months in a row, the pharmacy had to call for prescription authorization and I was unable to get it. The pharmacy called serve real times and was unable to get the authorization.
