I am very thankful for every person I have met in my lifetime thus far that has been a positive influence in my life... Dr. Shepherd helped me when I was totally paralyzed on the right side of my face from Bells Palsy. Brenda had tried several Doctors for their daughter Ellise before finally receiving help for her scoliosis from Dr. Shepard. Dr. Shepard works with his whole heart and knowledge to get to the root of the problem.

Amazing Dr and staff. I really enjoy learning about my body when seeing the Dr. Always very helpful and answers my questions in a way I can understand without being very degrading to me like other Dr. have been in the past. I would recommend Dr Shepard to anyone that is in need.
Dr Shepard is a thoughtful and insightful chiropractor. I got off a plane with a terrible neck issue and he explained the problem, adjusted me and put me on a regimen to get me right back to normal. ...and he is a Generally awesome guy! Thanks Dr Shepard!

Dr. Shepard is the absolute best. His approach is to the whole person, and he actively involves the patient in his/her own care. If you think you've been to a chiropractor before, I promise you Dr. Shepard is different. You will NOT be disappointed. No matter what health issues you have, Dr. Shepard can help you, and he will always be 100% honest about your options.

LIFE CHANGER! I started going to Dr. SHEPARD over 10 years ago. At the time any sitting for a period of time or any exercise put me in lots of pain. Dr. Shepard xrayed me first and then went over my xrays with me in detail and then told me without a doubt that he could help me get better. That was when I was 37. By the time i was 42, i had done 3 half marathons!! I have also been less sick since i have been seeing him. His staff is top notch and always professional and friendly.

Dr. Shepard is professional, compassionate, knowledgeable, and approachable. I refer everyone to him with confidence that he will resolve their issue. He helped me heal from an auto accident and treat the pain without using pain medication. He resolved another problem with my arm that the orthopedist thought only surgery would resolve. I cannot express my gratitude enough. He is amazing!!!
Comparing Chiropractors I have seen regularly for the last 30 years, Dr. Shepard is absolutely the top of the list. He is a great listener and focuses on results. When requested, he also takes time to educate me on prevention. He is also great with children. He solved a significant long term problem with one of my kids that other doctors could not resolve (hoping "grow out of it").

He does great work! I am now living in Montana and was the passenger in several car accidents. Even though we lived several states apart he still helped me get better. Helped me find the doctors I needed, what treatments would be helpful, and much more. He is always willing to take you under his wing and make sure you are getting the best care no matter where you are.
in Round Rock, TX |
Dr. Shepard is awesome!! When I started seeing him, I could barely walk as I was in excruciating pain from pinched nerves in my hips. He made a lot of adjustments and got me back to were I could walk for miles again.

The other poor reviews I am sure were for another shepard because they said they updated it after I saw it was under medical doctor so I feel bad that they claimed it- anyway I think he is a fantastic caring doctor. Look at all the google reviews and Yelp
