Dr. Sheps repaired my rotator cuff (supraspinatus) in July 2016. This was a private procedure and I feel very fortunate to have received care from Dr. Sheps. I am always a bit of a skeptic when it comes to doctors and surgeons just due to negative experiences in the past involving family members on various types of surgeries. I was worried going into this at first. Private surgery is a large out of pocket expenditure and you definitely want to ensure you are getting the best possible care. Dr. Sheps understands this and has a calm and professional confidence that was very reassuring, from the initial consult, all the way through to full recovery and especially pre and post op. He was there to answer any questions and concerns that I had and responded pretty much immediately to any queries (as he gave me mobile telephone number) day or night. I can't praise him enough for his care and attention. The pain caused by this surgery was surprising despite being warned before hand. At times throughout the recovery process, I would wonder "how could there still be this much pain" if my body was recovering properly. However, Dr. Sheps was pretty much exact in describing my current phase in the recovery process and when the pain would subside, again providing reassurance and lending confidence that everything was on the right track. In terms of the actual surgical procedure, the nursing and support staff were absolutely fantastic with wonderful facilities. Thank you for making the best of an unfortunate injury.
