Very satisfied with Dr. Shelton, he is very informative concerning my sons epilepsy, answers any questions we have, no matter how small, and always takes time to talk with my son. We are pleased with the staff at Children's. Thank you!
wonderful physician.. my daughter actually asked me if she can see him every time
Dr Shelton was wonderful! He listened to myd daughters concerns & answered all of our questions in a way we understood. I also liked that he didn't just hand us a prescription, but instead commended my daughter for things she's already been trying & doing & advised us of some supplements to try. He also made her feel very comfortable, she is not comfortable with most male doctors.
Dr. Shelton is one of my favorites, we look forward to his knowledge and helpfulness.
my twin girls adore Dr.Shelton. and he is very helpful to explaining the situation(The girls' medical condition to me)! I really like him. And am glad that he is their Dr
my daughter doesnt interact with meny people but she seemed to take to him well
I thought he was an amazing doctor and really listen to my conserns as the mother and you can tell that he really does like his career and that shows!
He was great!
I thought be he and the PA were fantastic! Very down to earth, nonjudgmental, and most importantly kind. It is not often that you feel comfortable with a doctor. This was our first visit and I felt as if we had been going to see them for years.
Love Dr Shelton always makes my son feel comfortable .Answers his questions at his level .Knows his history ...
We went to see Dr. Shelton for a second opinion. He was wonderful. He was kind and listened to our concerns. He was also able to provide us with answers that another provider in the group could not. He eased our minds and gave us a plan for the future. Would highly recommend him to anyone.
Experience was really very good. I am thankful to Dr. Levi Shelton for the effective analysis & treatment.
Dr. Shelton really took his time helping our son understand his disease, and offered us solutions in dealing with it. He was very kind and understanding.
Dr Shelton is excellent
Excellent provider/specialist. He is thorough, great communication directly with my child. I love that he truly wants to solve the issue to eliminate or at least minimize the use of drugs.

Great communicator and makes parent feel at ease . easy to ask any question:)))) wonderful MD I would highly recommend !!! good repoir! very thourough:))))) Great skills!
I was very impressed with how knowledgeable he was and loved how great he was with my son! He was easy to talk to and really listened to what we had to say.
Dr Shelton is a wonderful doctor. He always takes his time with us and explains everything he is doing, changing in our sons routine with medicines, testing etc. we had a scare over Memorial Day with our son and when we saw him in the office following the seizure he showed so much empathy and really shows he cares.
provider wad excellent ..very friendly and personable...joked around and laughed with my child...has a vast knowledge of his condition and what to look for symptom wise...excellent doctor...asked great questions and explained everything well so that even my son understood
Dr. Shelton was very attentive and thorough. His choice of clothes, shoes, and hair was very conducive to a child's cooperation and interest. He was very informative and receptive. He understood our concerns as parents and as children, and was very good at "non-verbal" cues to the parent to make sure all was understood and considered.
Dr Levi C Shelton was nothing short of amazing. Him and his assistant did their homework and read up on our daughter's seizure event and knew what was going on when it happened. They were wonderful to communicate with and gave us a number for his RN to assist with any medial questions we might have. We were thoroughly impressed
Dr. Shelton is great! He is always so nice and patient with all the questions we always ask and takes the time to explain everything to us.
the dr was great with my daughters. when he. first came in she was a little nervous and he made her feel comfortable and safe.
Dr Shelton and the staff were amazing with my daughter!
Dr Shelton was very caring and knowledgeable and we are happy he is on our team
I was very thankful for the Neurologist provided to us. Dr. Levi Shelton.
He's amazing. He's thorough, he explains thing completely, he listens to our concerns and talks about them. Very knowledgeable. Extremely personable and you can tell he really likes children.
Dr Shelton was a great listener and was very patient and kind with my 2 year old even though it was the end of the day on a Friday. He seemed very knowledgeable and gave good medical information. I went in feeling anxious and left feeling reassured.
wonderful experience with a new doctor
both of my children have medical issues. one has asthma and the other chronic headaches. dr Shelton was great. this is the first time we met him since my daughters previous neurologist left the practice. he really listened to us and got to know my child. I have nothing negative to really say about him as a doctor or the office in general. the o lay thing I will say is that no one (nurse or doctor) washed their hands or used sanitizer when coming in the room and then dealing with my child. other than that, A+ care from the practice, dr and nurse (reception people as well, they were very nice!
Such a sweet person! Really a very lovely doctor. Thank you for being so kind and caring. It means so much when your child is not quite right.
We really liked Doctor Shelton, he listened, did not judge when I told him I looked for info on internet. I like his approach to treatment. He took his time with us I did not feel rushed.
dr. Shelton was so patient... I was very impressed with his previous interaction and family interaction. he explained things to us that we could understand ... he had such kindness and compassion for a overwhelmed mother dealing with learning and understanding about her child having a seizure. He made a great 1st impression. he was patient if we had to ask the same question again - to help us absorb the big change in our child's health. he presented a professional interaction with the child/ family.
Dr. Shelton is a great neurologist and an asset to Children's. I TRUST him with my daughter's care. I think having trust in your physician is just as important as them having the knowledge to treat!
