I met Dr. Shell first time for my long overdue epidural back injection. He indicated he had reviewed my latest MRI imaging and listened to my concerns. He had a good sense of humor and wished me well as I left my injection appointment. I see no reason why any reasonable person would not find this Pain Doctor's treatments quite satisfactory. My previous pain doc had been Dr. Jenks for some 7-8 years. If you are a former Dr. Jenks client - fear not Dr. Shell !
