I have a very physical and demanding job and ive recommended Dr shields to anyone who tells me they may need ny kind of replacements

4/24/2015

I was pleasantly surprised by his congeniality on this visit. Last visit was not as palatable. He listened and asked if I had any questions, which always make a patient feel that they are being well cared for by a provider.

4/22/2015

Good.

4/21/2015

Dr Shields provided excellent care and I could not imagine a better outcome. He communicates well by proving all the information to make an informed decision to decide on surgery. After surgery there were clear and concise instruction on what needed to be done to have a great recovery. If it were not for the two knee replacements he did I would not be walking today. He literally changed my life.

12/17/2014

I have already been telling people about how good Dr. Shields is and has always been. It is so good to know that "people friendly" is a good thing. There has been so many good changes in the years since I spent so much time there with my husband. I am so thankful to see these changes.

12/17/2014

Dr. Shields in a very articulate Dr. I have no conplaints. I've had no problems with the surgery.

11/20/2014

I came to Dr. Shields for a second opinion regarding hip replacement. This will be my 10th surgery on my lower body, so I have unfortunately met quite a few doctors in the last 12 years. Never in those 12 years has a doctor spent as much time with me as did Dr. Shields and his assisting doctor. I was so impressed with him not only as a doctor, but as a person. As a result of that meeting, I elected to terminate my very long standing relationship with Ortho Carolina and move my health care needs to Dr. Shields and others at Baptist. I look forward to him conducting the surgery so I can get my life somewhat back to normal. Baptist should count their blessings to have such a wonderful doctor.

11/6/2014

Let me know I was on the right track regarding my health & knees.

9/3/2014

I felt I have made the right choice for me, I have already been singing his praises.
