Dr. Shea did two clavicle repairs on my son, who broke two clavicle last summer. Dr. Shea and his staff are brilliant, friendly, professional. They explained the surgery and the alternatives thoroughly, without pressure to go surgical or non surgical route. Dr. Shea surgical stats speak for themselves (four stars), I trusted him completely, and sure glad I did. My son did great, and I would choose Dr. Shea again for anything orthopedic! Glad Boise has this kind of talent!

Dr. Shea treated both my ACL's and I could not have had better results. The staff are friendly and were helpful with any questions that I had. My family and I could not have been happier on the surgery and rehabilitation. Overall, glad I was treated by him and would recommend him to anyone.

"Dr." Shea performed bilateral de - rotation osteotomies three years ago on our handicapped non - verbal daughter. He applied the left leg cast incorrectly so that she developed a grade 4 ulcer on her heel. She has favored that leg with a severe limp ever since. She will be having an extensive spinal fusion later this month and I truly believe that her scoliosis was either caused by or exacerbated by the heel ulcer from sloppy application of her cast.

Meridian location office staff not overly friendly. Instead of saying Hi when you walk up they said Last name and which doctor are you here to see?. I heard them say this to multiple other people as well. Dr. Shea was prompt, friendly, and very informative.

Worse Dr ever. I don't recommend him at all.

You are treated like you are wasting his time. He does not answer your questions and if he does the answers are very vauge. You leave feeling like you wasted your time and did not learn anything that you had not known already.
