    I was very impressed with Dr. Shepard. She was recommended to me by a relative, and I am so glad I made chose Dr. Shepard.

    6/30/2018

    I soon learned I was not the only one who thinks she is the greatest. The staff in her office and in the hospital share my opinion.

    6/27/2018

    I wasn't sure what to expect since I regularly go to Salisbury Orthopedics. Dr. Shepherd quickly made me feel at ease. There was no doubt in my mind that she knew what she was doing and had my best interest at heart.

    6/26/2018

    recommend her

    6/16/2018

    Dr. Shephard was very caring and compassionate during a time I was very nervous. I had to have surgery on my ankle that same day and a lot was happening very fast. She was very informative and professional and put me at ease. She answered all my questions and I never felt dismissed. I was given excellent care!

    5/30/2018

    they are the best

    5/7/2018

    Dr. Shepard provided top tier service and is perhaps the best orthopedic doctor I have ever seen, and I've seen many. Her attention and genuine concern for my health were second to none and provide a superior example of the best Wake med has to offer. I am grateful to both her and the staff of Lexington orthopedics.

    I myself worked in the medical field for 34 yrs. I could not have had better care or concern from any other Dr. Dr. Shepherd is amazing as a physician and individual.

    2/2/2018

    great

    1/18/2018

    Great Doctor!!

    1/10/2018

    DR. Shepherd is amazing. I will never let another surgeon touch my shoulders. She is awesome at what she does. and very much caring. She always let's me know what to expect and uses medical terms then tells me what that term means.

    12/22/2017

    None bad.

    12/19/2017

    I've had no bad experiences with my provider.

    11/21/2017

    This caregiver was excellent in explaining the options and that attempt to repair it (torn rotator cuff) rather than just doing a shoulder replacement. In Florida, 2 years ago, the specialist just wanted to replace the shoulder!

    11/14/2017

    Care provider was very professional, yet very friendly and concerned about how I was doing and calling her if I had any future problems or concerns. She is a wonderful doctor.

    11/7/2017

    Very nice, open, friendly, and listened to what I had to say

    10/31/2017

    good

    10/31/2017

    Dr Shepard is great.

    10/26/2017

    Wake Forest Baptist health needs to clone Dr. Shepherd, the very best representative of North Carolina doctors. All of the physicians I have had healthcare encounters with are superb; however, Dr. Shepherd is very "special!!"

    10/17/2017

    An outstanding physician!!

    10/9/2017

    1. *Dr. Shepherd 9. Love her *Amanda Shepherd.

    Dr. shepherd is very caring and promotes the use of MY Wake Health for any questions and concerns so that the issue can be handled in a timely manner.

    9/25/2017

    Always wonderful.

    9/20/2017

    very good

    9/19/2017

    Dr Shepherd really shows that she cares about concerns you have about your visit with her. She takes the time to explain your condition to you and gives you options. There should be more doctors like her. You don't feel like you're just a number.

    9/18/2017

    I have never had a Dr as amazing and thourough as Dr Shepherd
