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

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.

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.

He always listens to me and understands my pain. He either has the answer or he knows where to send me for the answer. I highly recommend him if you are suffering from pain. Him and his staff are the best.
