Great expertise

I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. Dr. Shepherd is to the point. He doesn't sugarcoat things and for that reason he may offend some patients since he doesn't have the bedside manners that we often crave when we are ill. However, I have been a patient of his for well over a decade. He operated on me and removed the tumor, then told me that I needed to continue to get checkups and closely monitor this. In fact, the cancer came back and he removed it again. I have continued to get checkups from him, even after I moved out of state. He absolutely knows his stuff and I would not place my health in another's hands. It has now been about 20 years since I had the bladder cancer and I have trusted Dr. Shepherd with my condition. He is highly skilled and knowledgeable.

Dismissive and Unconcerned

I believe that every patient, regardless of their age, deserves respect and at least a modicum of concern about their condition. This doctor tossed off comments like he was discussing the weather, expressing a complete lack of empathy and care. I would never, ever recommend this guy to ANYONE. Find another urologist. STAT.

One Star

One of the rudest individuals I ever had to pay! Asked for my input, then cut me off: He "knew what I was there for". After a lightning quick exam, he was gone without a word. I was handed off to his staff and never saw or heard from him again. Staff was pretty nice.
