Would Rate Higher if Possible! We have an Adult son with Special Needs and Dr. Shepperd, Jr. went over and above what we expected in order to help make our son's surgery as easy on him as possible. I can't say enough good things about our visit with Dr. Sheppherd, Jr.

Dr. Sheppard was fantastic. He was personable, kind and explained what to expect during and after surgery. He wanted to make sure I was comfortable. His staff is very friendly. I did not experience a long wait in his office. I was actually impressed with how timely they were. Oh, and the most important part - surgery went very well. I would most definitely recommend him.

I'm so thankful for Dr. Sheppard! I was having major pain and a lump was sticking out of my upper abdomen. It was embarrassing and I wasn't able to lift weights without it popping out or hurting. I went and had a consult and was told that I had an epigastric ventral hernia. Dr. Sheppard repaired my hernia and used mesh. My recovery went well and I'm back to lifting weights and exercising with no pain! No lump with just a tiny incision that is already fading. I feel great and back to myself. So grateful for Dr. Sheppard and his staff!!!!

A person who recently had a stroke and was glad I found a doctor who was honest and didn’t just tell me what he may have thought I wanted to hear!

Dr Sheppard was very compassionate and caring. He takes times to explain what is going on and also allows you time to ask questions and he answers those. I got my operative report and saw where he went above and beyond to do everything necessary! So thankful that everything went well with the surgery & recovery. I would definitely recommend him. Also his staff was great for any concerns, appointments, etc.

Dr. Sheppard and his staff are amazing! In this crazy time of Corona Virus...he saw me and went above and beyond! My mammogram and ultrasound sent me to a surgeon! It’s all good and no surgery necessary. He even called to follow up. Highly recommend!

Dr. Sheppard Jr. performed my breast surgery as I was fighting my second bout of the disease. He was so supportive and listened to my concerns. After he sent me to a plastic surgeon to consider reconstruction, I opted for a double mastectomy. He also performed outpatient surgery to implant my port and it’s removal. I am so pleased with my care and the consideration he showed my family. He has a wonderful staff and his follow up has been attentive and caring.

Always reluctant when you know you may have to have surgery. But the staff was very friendly, professional, and helpful. Dr. Sheppard was also helpful, answering all my questions and very reassuring.
