Dana is thorough with her questions and thorough in answering all of my questions. She offers more than one option for my condition and the dialogue is more collaborative based on what I need for each issue. She is also very responsive to either phone calls or through the portal. I value my relationship with her as my practitioner.

I feel heard, cared for, known by Dr. Shepherd. I had a life altering experience and she supported me and my huge baby through it and 8 months later still knows me. That's the level of personal care that I'd always hoped for and am so grateful I have it with her.
