Dr. Shelton and the entire Children's neurology department have been providing my son premier care for the last 3 years. We loved 4 hours away from Pittsburgh2 years ago, and still make the trip twice a year because he is the best by far that we have encountered. His compassionate and understanding attitude, his knowledge and willingness to try new ideas, the way he interacts with my special needs son are only just a handful of reasons we simply think he is the best. The staff have always been welcoming and kind as well.
wonderful visit. doctor was quite adaptive to child being uncooperative and anxious. Dr addressed child using humor and kindness.. excellent with explaining everything and wanting input
dr. Shelton does an excellent job explaining things to me and helping me understand my medical condition.
Dr. Shelton is the best physician I have ever met! He cares so much about what he does and his patients. He has amazing bedside manners. If it wasn't for him my not of gotten the help he needed!
wonderful experience. I will recommend him to patients from my practice.
very good with teenage children
He was wonderful with how he approached our daughter. She is shy, yet he was able to grab her interest and have her communicate and interact in such a quick time.
Dr. Shelton was excellent. He took his time answering our questions. He related to my children as well. I was very satisfied with our visit.
Dr. Shelton is a very caring and compassionate doctor. He made my daughter understood exactly what was going on and how she could treat her symptoms. He was very informative and I feel like I can be a better caregiver to my daughter.
This is hands down one the best specialist we have ever seen. He took time to explain everything in great detail so we could understand. He made my son feel comfortable when he was nervous. Dr. Shelton is amazing and I'm so happy that he is my son's neurologist. He joked with him, and took his time really listening to our concerns. I can't say enough good things about him. He definitely didn't treat us like a number. I'd highly recommend seeing Dr. Shelton to anyone searching for a child neurologist!
He was on time and spent time with us discussing all of our concerns/questions. we never felt rushed or a burden. he did well with my daughter and kept her attention for the full hour.
Dr. Levi Shelton was the best! I wish he was our PCP. He was very personable and professional. great recommendations as well.
The Dr was very engaging with my daughter and even shared his past experiences running cross country. He headaches in detail and solutions.
The Dr took his time and asked pertinent questions, offered suggestions and advice, answered all of my many questions and was compassionate and patient with my son and I. I was comfortable with his dx and suggestions and will feel comfortable calling again if we need additional help.
Dr. Levi was very informative and friendly. He listened to our concerns and addressed them. We will definatly be asking for him for any concerns in the future.
Levi Shelton is hands down the best care provider in Children's Hospital. He is easy to understand and describes everything in great detail.
New Dr after his current Dr left the practice. We are happy with him overall.
amazing doctor! knowledgeable, thorough, friendly
My daughter's appointment with Dr Shelton exceeded all expectations! I honestly can't begin to say enough nice things about him. Just a few words that come to mind.... prompt, prepared, friendly, professional, respectful, good listener... I could go on and on. We've met literally dozens of doctors over the past few years due to my daughters various medical issues. Dr Shelton stands out as one of the best doctors we've ever had the pleasure of meeting! We are thrilled to have him as part of my daughters team!

Dr Shelton was amazing ! He is very knowledgeable and caring. I am extremely happy with our visit with him and have recommended him to friends and family if they ever need a specialist.
We were sent to this dr to help with migraines but all this dr did was continue what was already not working. dr completely ignored parents concerns and blew them off. Complete waste of time.
very personable and knowledgeable, excellent, we thank you!

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

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.

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.
