Dr. Shepherd is unlike any other provider I've had as an adult. She is so approachable and caring to her patients. From the very first visit, she was actively supporting of any health concerns or issues I had and came with solid solutions. She makes you comfortable to talk about anything and not be ashamed. So happy to have found her.

I love Dr Shepard. She goes above and beyond. She has helped me tremendously with my female issues. The first time I saw her I was literally in tears and exasperated from all the pain. It felt like I would never be normal and out of pain. I was very emotional and at my wits end. She was so compassionate, empathetic, and kind.... I'm extremely grateful I found her. She has gotten my pain from constant to almost nonexistent.
