I have been with Dr. Shelton for over 9 years. I have more faith in him than any other pain doctor I have ever seen. He is compassionate and extremely thorough in his diagnosis. He doesn't let you suffer provided you have a legitimate diagnosis. He does not run a pill mill so no need to go if you don't have a legit injury. Dr. Shelton is the most professional doctor I have ever been to. His staff is very professional and great at what they do. If you need a doctor for chronic pain, you WILL NEVER find a better place to go. If Dr. Shelton can make you better, HE WILL. If that's not possible, he will make you comfortable without making you some sort of addict. His office staff is very loving and compassionate. You can not go wrong becoming his client!!

I highly recommend him. He offers entire comprehensive approach to your health. Diet, vitamins, sleep hygeine, alternative thernatives, etc. He does NOT just pull out the prescription pad or perform steroid injections which do help. I believe he listens and actually reads what we ( the patients) actually write every month. There is always a dialogue that occurs. He always helpful with referrals as needed.

I will NEVER go to another doc for my pain management but Dr. Timothy L. Shelton! If you want a PM doc that truly cares, doesn't just dispense pills without trying to solve the issue, doesn't push surgery or costly procedures that don't work and isn't just after your $$$, make an appointment NOW with Dr. Shelton! That man has truly blessed hands and a caring heart for all! I have been his patient now for 8 years and actually have a LIFE thanks to him. When I saw him the 1st time, I could hardly stand, was in CONSTANT never ceasing pain and had just gotten married. He gave me my life back so I could actually DO things again for myself and with my beloved hubby & son and for that I will be forever grateful to him! I told him I wanted to put off surgery for as long as I could and he agreed. Trust me, you will grow to appreciate a GOOD caring doc with a HEART like Dr. T! That's my DUDE and always will be! I will follow him wherever he goes and that's a FACT! Dr. T is one rocking doc!

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.

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.
