Additional information, articles and links about Dr. Shell


"I came to see Dr. Shell to help confirm my issue was sciatic pain and not anything else. Dr. Shell was my last opinion before having back surgery. I was called back to the exam room 2 minutes before my scheduled appointment. He was in the room within 5 mins. Not only did he confirm i didn't have any leg issues, he took the extra time to explain how the sciatic nerves was affecting my leg. He took the extra time with me to explain my problems and give me a piece of mind about scheduling surgery."

"Dr Shell is by far an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He is easy to talk to. He is compassionate. But most importantly, he does great work . I had an ankle injury and Dr Shell did a wonderful job with my ankle . I just recently asked him to look at a past knee injury. He was VERY compassionate to this injury and knee it was not good. He is honest and he finds the best care possible for you. I would highly recommend Dr Shell and I am thankful for his care !"

"Dr. Shell was great! He saw my daughter for a knee injury. Dr. Shell was professional and spoke in easily understand statements. He reviewed the x-ray films with my daughter and I educating us on her condition. We will definitely see him again should the need arise."
