Dr. Shepherd is both professional and an excellent listener. She is thoughtful and asks relevant questions based upon your situation. She also has a calming presence which helps when at just about any Dr. as that is not always a place one feels calm. I highly recommend her and will continue seeing her.

I really do hate going to the doctor, and gyno visits in particular give me the icks--but truly this was one of the most pleasant experiences I've ever had ever. I really appreciated Dr. Shepherd and felt she was attentive, professional and caring. The front office as well as the medical assistant attending, were excellent, sweet, professional, and took their time with you. Great office, great people.
Dr. Shepherd was amazing. It was the first time I felt truly taken care of by an OB, she took the time to answer my questions listen to my ramblings about internet research and self diagnosis, and ultimately gave me great information and let me know that she would support whatever decision I decided on. Her nurse was also super nice and caring, plus their front desk was understanding when my insurance messed up and I had to call to have them verify coverage. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Dr. Shepherd is amazing, she is new to the practice and had a lot of availability so get in now, she'll fill up her datebook fast!!!
Super nice and made me feel very comfortable in an uncomfortable situation.
