St Petersburg, FL |
Dr. Sheppard made an effort to fit me in his very tight schedule. He is very personable and explains things carefully. I was disappointed that I did not speak with him after my procedure but I know he had another procedure right away. I would wish that you got to see him personally within the first week post op.

Have had countless surgeries over the years, and let me tell you, I have walked death road and back. Recently I Had heart ablation for SVT, Afib and arrhythmia. Procedure was done by Dr. Sheppard at Northside hospital on April 19/2017. With prayer and believing in Jesus, knowing that all is in his will and power, I felt comfortable and did the procedure. We even prayed for a change of anesthesia and it was changed last minutes. God is great!!! He also answers prayers. What a great experience.

Dr. Sheppard is very great. He listens to your concerns and has no problem explaining things to you.

When my pacemaker show signs of a rapidly declining battery, the office got me scheduled for a replacement pacemaker procedure in only two days! On the day of the procedure, the entire staff was very concerned for my wellbeing and comfort. Because anesthesia always makes me sick, I let the nurse know before the procedure and he informed the anesthesiologist. Whatever she did was 100% successful as I never became ill. I was in and out of the hospital in less than seven hours!

He is an excellent communicator as well as being a talented physician. I liked that he took as much time as necessary to keep me and my family informed before and after my treatments.
