waited over an hour in the lobby then when I did get called I waited over 20 min for the dr to come to the room meanwhile I was not dressed ! the dr never apologized for the wait and was very abrupt ! this was my first visit and the dr never even pulled up a chair and made me feel welcome ! the only time she sat down was to do a pap smear ! yo this date I still have not gotten my pap smear results !! when I asked the dr questions she was sarcastic and uncaring more concerned with trying to rush to get to the next patient! I will not be back and will not recommend this Dr or office

This was my first appt, with Dr Shepard. I appreciated the amount of time she spent with me and my husband; answering all of our questions. I didn't feel rushed or that she was in a hurry, and I left with a good plan to address my concerns. She is exceptionally knowledgable and professional, and I would recommend her to friends and/or family.

Dr. Shepherd has one of the best bed-side manners of any doctor I've visited in this group. She's warm and takes time to understand my concerns. She put me at ease immediately and feel confident in the advice and service she provided.

Dr.Shepard was awesome. I was at ease immediately when we started to talk. She was attentive to my concern and care. I was heart broken when my last doctor retired after being her patient for over 20 years. But Dr. Shepard made me feel right at home. I know I made the right decision chosen her.
