Excellent Physician

I have been a patient of Dr. Shephard for over 10 years and my wife for 5 years. He is very personable, excellent bed side manners and is fluent in English and Spanish. He is always into the latest treatments and medications and relays the information to his patients for them to benefit. His office staff is equally qualified, accommodating and quite pleasant. My wife and I would not hesitate to fully recommend him to anyone that needs medical treatment and guidance. E.S. Rodriguez, Miami, FL

Very good doctor and physician assistants

Very good medical staff, but cannot reach them on the telephone - only recording

If you want to wait in a very cramped waiting area, then be called in and sit while the assistant reads her text messages on her phone, go to this office
