In my visit to Dr. Sheppard she was very much like the other online reviews I read about her after my ob referred me. She seems very smart and so on but she was hard to understand and a bit awkward and uncomfortable.

My pregnancy issue is not life threatening to me or my baby and the visit was as much about getting sonogram video as diagnosis confirmation and treatment, it's just the interesting thing that this Dr. is so strange. She didn't express much emotion to the point it was distracting. Staff seemed to be aware of it but ignore it and she wasn't offensive or anything, she was just hard to connect with and awkward to a degree that communication with her was hard.

Dr. Sheppard saw my wife and I b/c she is 42 and pregnant. We needed to ultrasound to determine the presence of chromosomal abnormalities commonly associated with her age. The tech, Cathy, was great: thorough, patient, explained images to both of us as she went, made sure my wife was comfortable. When she encountered something during the US she gently told us about it and said Dr. Sheppard had to take a look.

So enter Dr. Sheppard. The whole mood changed when she came in the room. Cathy stiffened up and the doctor took a totally different approach to talking to us. She was kind of rude to Cathy, and then she made me move to a part of the room from which I know she knew I couldn't see the screen - her tone and demeanor were such that I didn't want to object - she seemed on the edge. Then she was just a real B**** in her delivery of the diagnosis - the news turned out to be not as bad as Cathy thought and we are relieved - but it's almost like she was upset the case wasn't more interesting [Cathy had obviously prepared her as well as us for bad news]. She rolled her eyes at Cathy in a quiet, testy little admonition and treated us like she was p***** off she had to come into the exam room at all. I said something to her about her attitude and she raised her voice at me and said I [!] was inappropriate and made me leave the room. My wife was rattled by the whole experience and I promise we'll never go back.

We were refrred to Dr. Sheppard by our ob/gyn for some concerns. Its my third so i wasnt really worried.

Dr. Sheppard was just rude and short. She wouldnt listen to my questions and she was really rude to my husband. She seems like shes one of those bitter women. She has to be 50 but she doesnt wear a ring and she was just mean for no reason.

its hard to know what to do because you know all these doctors know each other. We just asked our ob to leave it alone with her and refer us to someone else. I would say dont go unlless you cant get in anywhere else.

This woman should be doing something else. She was very late for the appointment which was bad enough, and she was just plain rude to my husband. At her suggestion, he stepped out of the exam room and sat in a little sofa/reading room, next to the exam room and she continued the exam.

But that's not the worst. She also stepped out of the exam room and didnt say why, but when she came back 5 minutes later she said she apologized to my husband. OK. However, when we wrapped up our visit and left, he said youre not going to believe this, but SHE JUST CAME ON TO ME! She said she knows how difficult sex can be during pregnancy, and that I [husband] must be suffering, that she knows what its like to be alone, etc etc. Then she picked up his hand and placed it on the inside of her bare thigh and stroked it [she wears short, tight skirts each time we have been in her office], and encouraged him to call if he needed "any more information". She kind of waited for him to say something, and huffed away when he just sat there dumbfounded.

What in the world? Are you kidding me? And she just sailed right back in and finished the exam like no big deal. There was no discussion of sex during the time he was in the exam room [or after he left]. She brought up that issue - one we do not have - out the blue.
