Very nice doc, however, very greedy doc. His office staff are extremely poorly trained. I was appalled and in shock to see his M.A. was a nervous wreck trying to draw my blood after she stuck me 3x times. His office front desk lady is mean and very base to put it nicely.

Dr. Shepard has been my primary care physician for almost 15 years. The most extra-ordinary incident that establishes the level of care that he provides was when I had appendicitis. Not only did Dr. Shepard call his Surgeon friend at GW to have everything set up for me at the ER even before I arrived, he actually stopped by my hospital room the next day, a Saturday, to check on me. As an immigrant with no family here, I cannot even begin to describe how grateful and touched I was.

Dr. Marc Shephard has become less personable since his office merged with MedSstar. He appears to be less interest during the appointments, and not as caring as he was before the merge. i like the pre-MedStar Dr. Shephard.
