The wait before seeing the doctor was a little long even though the office looked relatively empty. Once I saw the doctor it was a pleasant experience. I have decided to switch doctors as this doctor visit experience was a lotbetter than my previous doctor has been over the past 3 years.

Dr. Shepard is great! He was very helpful and asked a lot of questions that some might find too probing, but they were all relevant to getting a clear picture of my health and medical history. He was also quite funnyand quickly sought to make a personal connection with some of my interests (college football) which is very helpful in developing a rapport with a new MD.

Very sad to meet a doctor who starts off the professional relationship with antidepressants suggestions. Really? I am not depressed nor do I want to take them to treat my other issues. How about learn how actually treat and cure peopleat least initially without drugs, especially antidepressants that I don't really need???? Horrible start. I will never go back to a "doctor" like that.
