If she could receive 0 stars I would. The WORST bedside manner I have ever seen and I work in healthcare. I first came to her and although she was upfront which can appreciated , the way she goes about it is very very rude. Instead of listening to you and being an advocate for you she will tell you that you are wrong ( like you don't know what has been going on with you ) . You have no voice and appear "dumb". She will make you feel bad for having complaints about your own health. I had a 2nd ap

I went on my first appointment with Dr Sheils and gave her my current prescription medications. I brought all my medication bottles with me and let her know what I was currently on. Mainly cholesterol medication, allergy medication, and thyroid medication. After my visit, none of my medications were faxed to the pharmacy. When I called the office and talked with her nurse, she screamed at me and said”who wrote those prescriptions?” I have changed Doctors. Don’t waste your time.

I am a physician & Christian myself. I scheduled an appointment at this office one month ago. It is extremely difficult for me to get off of my job for personal care, I finally decided to take a “wellness” day for self-care and got it approved through my job. My appointment was inadvertently cancelled by a staff member in her office. When I voiced frustration regarding my appointment cancellation, I was told by Dr. Sheils nurse, Denise, that I would not be seen at their clinic indefinitely.

I went to this doctor for several medical issues and one of her responses was What do you want me do to do about it? She is the doctor not me, I came to her for answers and she dismissed everything I had to say. She even rolled her eyes and laughed at my concerns. For the first time in my life I walked out of this appointment before it was over. I would NEVER recommend her to ANYONE!!!!

My long-time primary care physician past away and had to find a new physician for all future visits. Dr. Sheils was recommended by a friend and I have been so happy and satisfied with the visits to her office thus far. She is always warm and friendly. She takes all the time needed to answer all my questions and listen to my concerns with a smile on her face. I never feel rushed or uncomfortable to ask her anything. She and her staff truly makes you feel that your health is their top priority.

She is a kind and considerate professional. She is one of the few doctors I have met that actually listens to what i have to say. She has taken the time to understand my circumstances and how they affect how I'm feeling and why I get tearful sometimes.She always give me a hug and understands me.
