Dr. Shedden is an amazing neurosurgeon with a gentle personality. He takes time to answer all of your questions, explaines procedures on a common level and is very knowledgeable. We felt very fortunate to have him do the neck fusion.

Dr. Shedden has done surgery on my husband's lower back and his neck. I am very pleased with the care and compassion the surgeon and staff have shown. I will always recommend anyone I know to use Dr. Shedden.

He performed a MVD surgery in October, 2016. However, there was a rare complication, a CSF leak 8 days later. He performed the surgery again as there was no way to determine what caused the CSF Leak. I have found his follow-up care to be thorough and informative.

He is the most arrogant, rude doctor with a "god syndrome." I cannot imagine having brain surgery and waking up in pain and this "doctor" being in control of my care! Don't waste your time!
