9/20/2017

I've worked in surgery for over 13 years at many prestigious and mid level facilities. Dr. Sheilds is the real deal...Let me explain.He is kind, warm , has a great sense of humor, doesn't talk down to ANYONE that I've seen and he shows compassion to the needs of my problems. Also, he gives encouragement.I told him personally too never change who he is because medical personnel needs more Dr. Sheilds in this world.I'm a former Marine and I do not give high praises unless I truly believe in what it is I'm saying or thinking.my 1st knee replacement he did went great and my next one at the end of the month I'm sure will go just as well.I would recommend him to anyone!

8/8/2017

I am very please with my care provider.

7/23/2017

Dr. Shields is an outstanding physician whose approach to medicine and his patients has not been equalled in all my experiences with organized medicine. He is probably the best and most qualified MD I have had the pleasure of entrusting my health and well being. He has the best of approaches with his patients and is always willing to listen to my concerns and many questions to help me understand the healthcare process I am going through with my hip replacement surgery. I have already referred him to a number of neighbors and friends who may need joint replacement surgery.

7/23/2017

Dr. Shields is an excellent care provider. The fact that his clinic was overbooked only means he has to spread himself too thin in time with his patients. This is a real shame, he should not have to be under this kind of pressure - if he is to serve his patients as they deserve!

7/11/2017

Every part of my care was outstanding!
