A listener writes, "I went to see my family doctor about some unbearable pain. He did an x-ray and quickly sent me to see Dr. Theodore Shepard at Middle Tennessee Urology. Within hours, I was undergoing a procedure for kidney stones at St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital. Dr. Shepard explained what was happening, calmed me, and got rid of the excruciating pain. Dr. Shepare grew-up in a missionary family, and was taught to care for and help others at an early age. I'm blessed to have gone to Dr. Theodore Shepard."
