Canton, GA |
He is a fantastic Doctor! He truly cares for his patients. He DOSE NOT give you what you want, he gives you what you need. He doesn’t just loosely prescribe controlled substances. He knows what he is doing and is very knowledgeable! I am so glad God sent me to him! He is a fantastic Doctor!

My personal experience with Dr. Shelton has been amazing. He is personable, gets to know his patients, and above all, he takes their comfort into consideration and strives to make them feel at ease when they are undergoing a procedure. Very caring and knowledgeable.
in Douglasville, GA |
Excellent. He takes the time to get to know you & your particular quirks & seems to integrate that information into his diagnostic & prescribing practice. If I had one complaint it would be that the nursing/other clinical staff can jump to conclusions when he is not there, probably because it IS a pain clinic & they DON'T know you like Dr. Shelton does & they can be a bit snippy & accusatory. But overall it's been a very pleasant experience & I know they're there to protect us & the community.
