Dr. Shepard is an amazing physician! Not only is he very talented as a surgeon (my meniscus repairs were done so well) but he is great at explaining things, has a wonderful sense of humor, is really down to earth, very experienced, and highly credentialed. I seriously cannot think of any aspect in which he could be any better. In addition, his staff is very nice and friendly, whether at his Orange office or his Irvine office. If you have orthopedic issues, he's your guy.
