What People Say About Dr. Richard Sheppeck, MD
Reply Flag
Dr. Sheppeck has treated my amputee son for over 2 years. After surgeries to graft new veins(?) & amputate two toes on the 'good' leg, there is again NO circulation. The entire leg is swollen, purple, gets pus pockets, etc., so doctor scheduled surgery - two months out. So far NO medications have relieved the immense pain and now he's thinking suicide. The doctor doesn't seem to see my son as a living person who should listen to, but as a thing who deserves what he's going through.
