Don't get too attached to Dr. Shelton or her practice. Based on one uneventful OB appointment with Dr. Shelton, I was alarmed to receive a patient dismissal letter in the mail two days later banning me from seeing any of the seven physicians at the practice, forever. The letter did not state why I was being dismissed, and when I called to find out I received a vague answer from the nurse. All I can say is, they must not be hurting for new patients if they are so quick to get rid of them.

I personally felt disconnected from her for some reason - it was almost like I was a new patient every time I had an appointment. I didn't realize it until I met her much warmer fellow associates when I was meeting them all towards end of pregnancy. I like the practice, just had a blah experience with her personally.
