New Port Richey, FL |
Dr Shepard was very good. I had absolutely no problems with my procedure or recovery!
in Land O Lakes, FL |
I had a FMT in December of 2016 That I believe Saved my life.I was very sick from Cdiff related to antibiotics that were givin to me in the hospital in August of 2016 .I can eat a lot of things now when before I could eat absolutely nothing. My condition was extremely bad so I'm still not 100% but I know with Dr Shepard's help I will be soon. I thank God for Dr Shepard and his staff.

I have Crohn's, and I have moved around and had many GI doctors. Dr. Shepard is the best. I'm not the easiest patient, but he will take as much time as necessary to listen to my many questions and devise a plan. He is also active and up to date with research and diet protocols (sadly this has been a big problem with past doctors). He listens and discusses what makes me feel better and doesn't just tell me what I have to do. His staff are also very knowledgeable.

My mother is 87. She has had episodes of GI bleeds and abdominal pain. He is very kind and patient with her. He did the endoscopes and colonoscopies, and she did very well.

in Valrico, FL |
Staff VERY confrontational! I had appt scheduled at 2pm... Front desk woman claimed it was 1:30... and didn't know if she could even get me in at that point!

It is a sweet and caring doctor. He really listens and cares for his patients.
