Dr. Shepard was nothing short of amazing. she was so nice and loving. her personality made this routine check a lot easier. she made conversation and didn\'t just come in and start my procedure. You could tell that she was concerned and moved by me having the best health which I never experienced anywhere. I\'m excited that I have finally found an OBGYN and office where I feel safe, care about and important. thank you dr Shepard and all the staff!

Dr. Shepherd is a phenomenal doctor. She was very attentive and she has great bedside manners. She made me feel like we were friends having lunch instead of my gynecologist. She is insightful and encouraging and I really need encouragement. She empowered me to start caring for myself.
