Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Shields quickly diagnosed the nature of my injury, got my pain level managed, and consulted with a talented surgeon that could have me up and running again in no time.

My wife had intense abdominal pain one evening which ended up in the ER. Dr. Shields saw her and spent about 15 minutes looking at and discussing test results we brought with us from an outside lab. We have no complaints with his medical skill or delivery. But for that 15 minutes we were charged a physician fee of $2,038. My wife is a self pay patient. The doctor's office refused to give any discount. Absolute usury.

One of the best ER doctors we have ever seen. Dr. Shields was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful with my father's very unusual case. He took the time to explain everything to us and got all the necessary tests going until he was admitted to the hospital.

He's definite and external processor and gives a lot of information that probably isn't necessary. But overall he is fantastic. We really enjoyed both times we were under his care

Dr Shields saw my grandmother in the ER. The wait time was long due to more serious medical needs. He had an excellent bedside manner, explained everything clearly, and treated us all very well. He didn't order unnecessary, costly medical procedures which is a rare attribute nowadays. I highly recommend him.
