Suffered from constant headaches for 10 years after a car accident. Dr. Sheppard helped me in a matter of a month and a half to get rid of that pain that never seemed to go away. It’s been a year later and I’m still headache free! Thank you, Dr. Sheppard!!

So grateful to have found Dr. Sheppard. I can now move my neck, and raise my arm without all the pain. He takes time to explain what is going on with your body. His staff is wonderful.
