He wouldn't see me because I'm 420 friendly and smoke it for my severe chronic pain only.

Unfortunately, the DEA does not allow physicians to prescribed Opioid Therapy with illegal drugs present. It is against the law for prescribers to prescribe opioids with illegal drugs present. Any Licensed Physician would have his DEA Licenses taken away. The physicians have the State Medical Board and the DEA quite often audit their urine drug screens. The Doctor's Medical License and DEA License is of most importance to their Hippocratic Oath and to maintain patient care.

Carried my mother on the date and time she was given, got there and they had no record of her appointment. Could not find where she paid over the phone with her credit card for the appointment. It was not a good experience.

Unfortunately, at this particular time we had some staff changes. We did reimburse this person & apologized for our errors. Every clinic has issues during staff changes. We strive to do the right thing for every patient. Health Care has changed significantly & paper work is in overload with the new regulations of The Affordable Care Act Law. It is our error that this person's paperwork was not scanned into a "New Patient" Record. We are very disappointed that this happened.

I have been seeing Dr. Shedden since 2005 I'm not a 100% but I'm closer than I what I was before started going to see him. He's more like family with the benefit of being a doctor. He's a great man.
