Dr. Shelton always takes the time to patiently answer questions and alleviate any fears. He is very pleasant, warm, compassionate and knowledgable ! With the change in my residence I need to drive around 40 mins to see him but will gladly do so given that he is everything I could hope to have in my doctor!

I've been going to him for years and am very satisfied with the personal attention he gives me. My family in the area go to him as well as have my children who have grown up going to him and now their children. Ive found that many of my friends prefer him as well. Though with the recent changes in management they seem to be rushed to see patients very quickly and and some procedures required by BSW are not as good for me as before.
