Dr Shelton is the best and most caring doctor ever!! I took my mother-in-law to talk to him after a very traumatic experience in her life! when Igot home that day I told my husband I wanted to change our entire family to Dr Shelton. we did and have been going to him ever since. He truly cares about his patients and even remembers things you've talked about in past visits! I completely trust him and will never change to another PCP!!
