Great doctor

Dr Shelton eased my back pain from the minute I walked out of his office and it stayed eased for almost a year. Great guy, easy to talk to, gentle, caring and knows what he is doing.

Satisfied Patient

Dr. Shelton has done more, in the past two years, to help me deal with my pain than any of the other doctors I have seen for the same condition since 1996. I have been subjected to epidurals every month for as long as I could tolerate them. Then I would tell the Dr. - no more - I've had enough, move on and find another, only to find the procedure repeated again and again, along with too much pain medications. Dr. Shelton has done procedures that lasts for 6 months and the pain medications required are half Sa what I had been required to take. He is personable, caring and very patient oriented. I would recommend Dr. Shelton to any member of my family. I personally like to keep up with his web cite to keep abreast of any changes in location I may not be aware of. Excellent Doctor. Would travel if necessary to be able to keep his as my doctor.

Finally Found a Great, Accessible Pain Specialist!

If you've dealt with a great amount of pain for a long period of time, you know it is very difficult to try a new doctor. My husband urged me repeatedly to try this doctor who had helped him once when his back went out. I've used a specialist in Atlanta that was known to be so good that I saw a Braves' player in his office. I've used a new guy over by Woodlawn Commons in Marietta. Neither came close to the dignity shown me at Shelton's office and by him personally. More importantly, he nailed it the first time--out of pain, just like that, with the first injection. Try once more if you are in pain -- I think you'll like Shelton. P.S. I put 5 minutes as the wait time because that is what it was, but I hate that question. I hate the doctor that caters to that question instead of the patient. I'd have waited two hours for that kind of help.
