Dr. Sheppard performed a colon resection on me in 2014. He was kind, thoughtful, and honest about the surgery, post-surgery expectations, and any potential complications/results. The procedure was a complete success, and I fully recovered on the projected timeline. I believe Dr. Sheppard truly cares about his patients and that his skills are exceptional. Everyone I encountered during this process at his office and the hospital demonstrated both compassion and professionalism. So thankful!

My experience with Dr. Sheppard was everything that previous patients have said. He is an outstanding and very compassionate doctor.He took the time to explain what was going on with me and answered any questions I had.In the days prior, I got nervous about the surgery.But Dr. Sheppard eased all of those fears by just taking a moment to pray with my mother and me.Not too many doctors do that.Dr. Sheppard and his staff are truly one of the best and for that, I'd like to say thank you.

Dr. Sheppard Jr., was recommending to me from my regular doctor due to my gallbladder not working. It turned out to be an emergency surgery with me meeting with him on a Friday and the surgery taking place the next Monday. He was so nice to me and my family and took the time to pray with us before the surgery. Now my daughters gallbladder has to come out and I told my Dr I only wanted to use him again for my daughter.
