I have been going to Dr. Shelton for around 18 years. He is great! He always listens and to every concern I have and involves me in every decision he makes about my health. I fully trust him. My insurance at work changed a few years ago and he was no longer on the lowest plan I normally chose, so I pay extra to be able just so I can continue going to him. I even moved to another three years ago, but love him so much I still drive all the way to his office just to keep him as my doctor.
