Patient Comments (8)
in TX |
Very good and easy to talk with. You can tell he loves his work.
Spring, TX |
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.
in Trinity, Texas |
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!
The Woodlands TX |
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.
in Tomball, TX |
There are no words to express my total satisfaction with the skill, care and professional service Dr Shedden and his staff provided to my wife during a very critical life threatening situation.
in Tomball, TX |
No care at all after surgery. Not sure if surgery was successful. Probably not.
in Spring, Texas |
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.
Spring, TX |
Operated on husband with GBM Stage IV and cared for him for the duration of his life! Excellent staff and care!
