Patient Comments (5)
in PLANO |
He is rude, arrogant, doesn't seem to actually care about you at all, and is over all terrible. He refuses to fill prescriptions unless you come in and pay for him to sit in the room with you while he basically does nothing to help you. And if you are in an emergency situation, you might as well just go to a hospital, because he won't phone or fax your LIFE SAVING DRUGS into a pharmacy. He is archaic, and will not consider modern therapies. Please, do not put your health in this man's hands!

I HAVE BEEN A PATIENT OF DR.SHELDON'S FOR 10 YEARS. HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN SO HELPFUL AND ANSWERS ALL MY QUESTIONS. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM. I HAVE GIVEN HIS NAME TO A FEW OF MY FRIENDS AND NOW THEY ARE PATIENTS (: HIS STAFF IS ALWAYS FRENDLY AND THEY HELPFUL .

Must see him every 3 months in order for prescription refills and oh by the way be aware that they will not inform you prior to turning 65 that they don't accept Medicare We drove quite a distance for a regular scheduled appt only to be told that we would be required to pay out of pocket. I feel that they should notify you of this well in advance to give the patient the opportunity to find someone that will accept Medicare. If he cared about his patients he would advise them
Mc Lean, VA |
Dr Sheldon will not discuss test results over the phone nor prescribe RX's. He forces you to have an office visit and pay a co-pay to advise you of your results before he will prescribe needed medication.
Concord, CA |
I had no issues w/the doctor. He was always pleasant and eager to answer questions , if any. I had a very unpleasant experience with staff, so longer returning.
