I had a "weird" oral condition I couldn't heal and Dr. Shepard, after examining the problem area and ordering some tests, diagnosed my problem and ordered a compounded prescription that healed the condition. He was very professional and I felt very comfortable with his manner. The staff was very friendly, making my visit a pleasant one. I would definitely refer friends/family to this doctor.

Dr Shepard is intelligent, approachable and easy to work with. He's honest and sincere and works with you to figure it all out and work on a plan that makes sense to make everything better. I had a few procedures with Dr. Shepard and have been to him a few times since. Every time it's always an enjoyable experience and I feel better soon after. The staff at Austin Ear, Nose and Throat are all great and I can't recommend them enough.
Austin, TX |
Very rude. Didn't ask about symptoms. Spent about five minutes. I have a serious condition that may require surgery. He was happy to just get me out of the office, and said it was nothing. I needed a second biopsy. Then I was dropped as a patient. Can't see any of their doctors now. Austin Ear Nose and Throat is really bad. They hide behind their "policies". They don't want to treat anything serious.

Knowledgeable, however abrasive and condescending. Displays a know it all mentality. I would not recommend this physician.
