  • I can’t say enough good things about Dr Nicholas Shepard. He put my wife and I at ease the first time we met him. He clearly explained, using my X-rays and MRI film, what was giving me problems in my lower back (spine) and then covered the steps he would take, during the surgery, to correct those problems. My wife and I left that first meeting fully confident in Dr Shepard. After the operation I expected to endure some fairly high level of pain during my stay at the hospital and also after being released, but I did not experience that level of pain. On a scale of 1-10 my pain/discomfort was no more than a 2. Needless to say I was very surprised and thankful about that.

  • Dr. Shepherd took his time and listened to me. Then reviewed the x-rays and went over treatment options I felt that he actually cared about me and not just treat me as a number to throw information at and run out the room. I will definitely keep him as my physician as the need arises. He restored my faith in TOA since my first experience with TOA with a different physician was not good at all!!

  • It took two weeks to get an appt and then they told me upon arrival that I have a $143 balance from the e.r. 5 yrs ago and couldn't be seen. I advocated for.myself as I am 32 and woke up a month ago unable to walk... thankfully Dr. Shepard agreed to still see me.and after a short exam and 3wk old x-rays and no MRI believes he has a diagnosis and he seemed very knowledgeable about the problem. Hoping to walk again within the next 2-4 wks. He seemed kind and gentle and I will update to let you know if he was correct also. As of now I would definitely recommend Dr. Shepard

  • My doctor has been wonderful and has made sure I know about every aspect of my care. I could not recommend a better doctor than doctor Shepard. I do have advice. If you’re getting a surgery do not, and I mean DO NOT, watch a video of the surgery on YouTube before hand. It does not help and I have learned some things about back muscles that I honestly wish I never knew.

  • I have never had any pain or problems with my back so I was nervous to go to a new doctor and try to explain what was going on. He was the nicest, kindest guy ever. Very attentive and listened to everything I said/asked. He explained everything in detail, gave me a specific treatment plan, a timeline for when I can expect changes, etc. I am very pleased with my experience and will definitely recommend him to anyone else who is having back issue.
