Dr. Shelton is the best provider. He is very caring and concerned. He does not show any signs of rushing you thru your visit. He makes you feel at ease and comfortable at talking to him about your sickness and problems. I have been with him for over 15yrs and never has he in talking about my health has he spoken in a tone like he is scolding me when letting me know I need to do better. He always explain my options in a mild manner.

I have been Dr. Shelton's patient for several years. I have never felt rushed to get in and out of his office quickly. He always takes his time when listening to me about my health concerns. I will never switch doctors because Dr. Shelton truly cares for his patients and you will never feel like just another patient while receiving care from him.
