My daughter and I both see Dr. Shea and he is always attentive to what is going on with the issue we have. Answers our questions and we never feel rushed. My daughters play sports and he is very understanding to their need to get back on the court, but also makes sure that they are healed so as not to have re-injury. We have always felt we get the best care from Dr. Shea.

I previously saw Dr. Shea regarding a shoulder problem. Recently I have had lots of pain in my right knee. He began with an x-ray and then discussed various forms of treatment. I just received the last of 5 shots in my knee (not cortisone) and we will see how that helps the problem. He is always kind and stays to answer any questions I have regarding my issue.

Dr Shea does not provide full disclosure or follow up. 3 times I had to call back multiple times to get results from office visits, MRI results, and answers to questions created from phone calls with half answers. I no longer trust him. He's nice and seemed thorough, but he doesn't provide follow up and full disclosure so I know what's going on. I'm to have hip replacement, I no longer am confident he can do it right. His staff needs coaching on patient follow up.

i visited for hip pain, from a broken hip twenty years ago, resulting from a roller blading accident. Dr. Shea and Stephanie were vey caring and supporting the least invasive procedures, to see if these solutions would benefit my pain. I had an MRI, but it failed to show accurately due, to hardware from the originall surgery. I have had two steroid injections which did manage pain, but still limited my goals of being able to hike, ride bikes and attend regular yoga classes.
