Dr. Shields is an excellent doctor/surgeon! I have had numerous foot surgeries in my life. This time I chose Dr. Shields, after several other orthopedic consultations with other doctors. During the initial exam, she listened to my concerns and then explained how she could be of help. I was amazed by her minimally invasive surgical technique. For the first time, in my life, I was walking within a few days after surgery. I literally had no pain! So very thankful for her surgical skill and an abundance of compassion.

Dr. Shields is amazing! My son broke his ankle and she performed his surgery. A different doctor was telling us he definitely needed surgery but after getting a second opinion from her, she had mentioned she would try and fix it without surgery. She got us in right away and with short notice. She was able to fix his foot without surgery which we are so thankful for. She has great bedside manner and explained everything that was going to happen. I would highly recommend her!

I have been seeing Dr. Shields for over 10 years and absolutely love her. She is on the leading edge, takes time to discuss diagnosis, options for treatment and gives her opinion without fluff. I respect her and her staff as they have been totally professional and responsive when needed. I have required 3 arthroscopy surgeries on my knees and I have been totally satisfied with the results. Dr. Shields values our discussion regarding treatment and is thoughtful before considering surgery.
