Personal Statement

I love developing longitudinal, therapeutic relationships with patients. I wanted to serve patients of all ages and be able to address as many needs as possible, so I chose family medicine. Within family medicine, I have also developed a passion in genetics and vascular disease due to research and personal experiences throughout my life. In the Vascular Medicine Clinic, I work with vascular surgeons to provide a team approach for managing patients' chronic vascular disease.

Patients should choose me because I care about who they are as a person. I make recommendations based on evidence-based medicine, but the patient makes the final decisions for their care based on their needs and life perspective. The patient comes first.

Outside of medicine, I love to be with my family and spend time outside.

    I really felt like she cared. She was very validating in that my symptoms are concerning and not something to be brushed off. However, she was 10 minutes late to my appointment which left only 30 minutes for our first appointment. She was in a rush to get to the next appointment on time. I was disappointed to not have more time to ask questions and discuss more possible treatments.

    Dr. Sheppard is a GREAT doctor! She is compassionate, and an outstanding communicator. She listens well and is very thorough. She is more educated about my connective tissue disorder than any doctor I've seen anywhere ( and I've seen a lot)! She's the sole reason I've assembled my entire medical team here at the University of Kentucky.

      *Dr. Sheppard was extremely thorough. The time she took and questions she asked showed how much she cares.
