I had a subdural hematoma which required brain surgery. Great surgeon, I was in ICU for one day and at home on the third day. Quick recovery.

HE may be a good doctor but you need to get past his RUDE staff to know. They had the audacity to ask me to call a friend to use their debit card to make pmts. I was using a nationally used CC that they didn’t tell me they didn’t take. I drove over 100+ miles to not let me see him for that reason only. Greed!!! I offered for them to file my ins and they refused and offered for them to call the referring physician to help me and they refused. I would pay if they would bill. I guess when you have that much $$$ one appt can’t possibly hurt you. ??

I was injured in a wreck that totaled my car, and had worsening pain in my left arm so bad i could not think, or function at all. I suffered and lived on pain pills for years. Dr. Shedden operated on my injured neck, and 2 days later i left the hospital pain free, and pill free. This was about 10 years ago, and the neuropathy down my left arm is still gone. I think he is a great doctor.

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.

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!

I had an appointment and saw his associate for the first visit. It was without a doubt the worst doctor visit in my life. I told the staff don't make another appointment because I would never come back ever. Terrible.

No care at all after surgery. Not sure if surgery was successful. Probably not.

Dr Shedden is my hero. What do you say about someone who gave you your life back? I was close to being in a wheelchair from unremitting sciatica pain and spinal stenosis. I knew it was gone as soon as I woke up from the surgery. I had some really awful days ahead to heal from the surgeries; a laminectomy and two fusions, but I never did regret a moment for what I received in return....a chance to enjoy my life again. I thank God that Dr Shedden has the skill and expertise to fix me.
