Testimonials

After years of suspecting I had hypothyroid Dr. Shel’s office was the only one that did a full panel, treated it, and has been treating it ever since. For that I’m truly grateful. I’ve learned so much about my thyroid and my health it’s unbelievable. I think the perk to them not taking insurance is a better standard of care. And I was skeptical about the insurance aspect. I’m happy here and consider this my regular doctor in many aspects. I recommend wellness doctors to all.

“This place is awesome. Staff is amazingly nice. My procedure exceeded my expectations. I had the Intimalase laser and after the very first session there was a very noticeable difference. Session two even better. Can’t wait to go the third and final session. I wish I would have known about Dr.Shel’s office and this procedure before. Although I’ve never met Dr. Shel, her assistant is great. I am so impressed I am thinking of a different procedure that I’m interested in but was afraid of until now. Money well spent based on my husband’s reaction!”

Thank you Dr. Shel!!!”

I’ve been a patient at Dr. Shel’s for 2 months. I was immediately impressed upon my first visit with Dana (complimentary consult). She was extremely knowledgeable & seemed genuinely concerned & invested in helping me achieve MY goals.

Now, this is not my first rodeo. I’ve tried EVERY diet, read dozens of books on the subjects of weight loss & nutrition, tried pills & supplements, hired nutritionists & trainers, joined gyms… Day one Dr. Shel’s staff turned me on to a program that works. Yes, I was very skeptical & expected the same non-results I’ve seen for the majority of my adult life. Surprisingly, I met my weight loss goals in only two months (30+ Lbs gone; BMI from 31 to 20).

Kristie, Dr. Shel’s PA is amazing; never leaving my side, every step of the way. ANY question, concern, difficulty–she has offered appropriate support, expertise, guidance, prescription, etc. She makes my continued success & overall well being her top priority & works efficiently to ensure that I’m equipped to do my part as well.

Both Kristie & Dana made it clear that they’re available any time, if I need anything–& they are. Failure is just not an option for these wonderful women! And I have to say, failure can be pretty easy when it comes to any weight loss program–they have been realistic with me & have sugar coated nothing. It’s been inspiring & has given me the strength I needed to do my difficult part in the plan.

When I say it ‘only’ took 2 months, in no way do I suggest it was easy…it was not easy, not cheap, but totally been worth it–the single best investment I’ve ever made. It’s required lots of discipline, & that I adopt the same winning attitude they have.

The various traditional medical doctors I’ve seen before Dr. Shel, point blank, told me  the reason I was so exhausted all the time, gaining weight, finding it impossible to lose weight was because of my age (I’m in my mid 30’s–give me a break) & because I’m the mother of 2 young children (I know women with 4 children who work full time & manage to keep it together). The traditional medicine docs also pretty much told me I needed to accept my situation; that I would always have difficulty losing weight; and I would always struggle keeping it off. Yes–it’s no wonder I was so depressed.

(For the record–listen up traditional medicine docs–my children are WONDERFUL, a daily delight…they are the best gifts a person could have…they give me joy THEY do not deplete me; they are in no way the source of what ails me!!)

I met with Dr. Shel for the first time a month into the program. She totally gets what I knew in my heart to be true. Women don’t have to be tired and feel run-down all of the time–there are causes to this problem & solutions; we identified both. We also found reasons for my difficulties losing weight in the past. Failure is not an option for her either; she confidently told me that what I was experiencing could be managed. I went from feeling like traditional medicine’s most complicated & unsolvable mystery to probably one of her easiest, straightforward, ‘typical’ cases. She was the first doctor to confirm what I’ve always believed…the thyroid, weight, fatigue, & endometriosis issues I’ve endured for years very likely are related to one another & have a likely contributor (hormonal imbalance). When I’ve asked mainstream doctors about links or causes to these issues, I get clueless blank stares.

I now have a realistic & doable plan of action for my future. I believe that some of the discoveries made through the bloodwork & hormone testing will guide me in making better choices for my daughter. I can now learn what can to be done to help her avoid some of the pitfalls I’ve endured. Now that I have this information, I can provide my daughter with wholesome nutrition & an optimal environment that supports balance for her.

Thanks to ALL of the staff there, I truly feel my very best. Even the front desk staff offer genuine words of affirmation & help out in any way they can. I haven’t felt this energetic, alive, productive and WELL since my childhood. I feel blessed to have met them & am so appreciative of their role in my journey. I feel like the mother my children deserve to have, the wife I’ve always wanted to be, & the me I was born to be.

If you decide to go forward with their services, testing, and plans for wellness…do so with an open mind & with the dedication & discipline with which they exemplify & bring to the table. It worked for me! It’s not magic, it’s not free; you’ll get what you pay for. Seek the truth & be prepared to learn something new. I had to step outside of my comfort zone & trust in something I wasn’t all that sure about. It was a leap of faith I’m so glad I took.”

I also escorted my sister to get Botox and Radiesse. The new Aestheticians, Kay McCunis is so experience, knowledgeable, and amazing. I have visited quite a few medical spas and Kay’s experience and personality outshines all of them. The result of botox and fillers that Kay performed on my sister was wonderful. Kay recommended 4CC of Radiesse for my sister’s laughing lines.  My sister decided to use 3 CC based on another’s aesthetician’s recommendation in an earlier visits. We now wished my sister had agreed to use 4 CC like Kay recommended. Despite using 3 CC, I was so overwhelmed with the result.

I immediately made a consultation appointment with Kay the next day. I arrived at my meeting with so much excitement. Kay immediately put me at ease, took my facial pictures, and showed me the aged portions and facial loss that I have endured over the years. She gave me advice and options on how to fix the problems. She did not put any pressure on me and told me to come to her anytime I am financially ready. Love Kay and her confident so much. I have already referred numerous friends and family member to Dr. Shel. I will recommend the Spa anytime any day.”

~Debra W.*

“Top-notch establishment, treatments, service and staff. Highly knowledgeable and very willing to address questions and concerns. Very glad I found a place like Dr. Shel’s Wellness & Med Spa!”

~Patrice B.*

“Dr. Shel really listened to me and my needs. After a few months I can see a slight difference in my energy level and am looking forward to much more energy. Guadalupe is such a joy to be around. She is a very caring individual who administers the vitamin infusions as gentle as possible.  My visits have been very pleasant. Thank you!”

~Olga S.*

“Dr Shel and her staff are absolutely amazing. I have seen her for over a year and have had wonderful results as my health has improved in so many ways. I have lost weight, have increased energy, and increased focus and concentration just to name a few. She takes great care and time with you to ensure she understands your needs. She is an amazing woman and doctor and I appreciate how she has contributed to my well being. Thank you Dr Shel.”

~Shana L.*

“I love going to Shel Wellness and Medical Spa.  I’ve had many great skin treatments there but the Pearl Fractional with eyes has been the best.  Due to heavy skin damage from years of harsh sun exposure, my face and neck was blotchy from rosacea, wrinkly, and droopy.  The Pearl Fractional on my face, eyes, and neck removed much of the rosacea and skin damage and my skin looks and feels so new and fresh.  I’ve only been wearing sunscreen and minimal eye makeup and that’s really all i need.  My dream come true!  I love Vickie, she is so knowledgeable and experienced, she has my trust to do what is best for me.”

~Debbie G.*

“Dr Shel and her staff provide an extremely professional and caring environment for both medical and aesthetic treatment. I have had wonderful experiences with several types of treatments that worked to increase my own body’s production of collagen and provide results that look natural and healthy. I have very fragile and sensitive skin and was able to feel completely at ease and comfortable with the treatments I received from Dr. Shel, Lacy and Vickie. I can highly recommend Dr. Shel and both her medical and aesthetic team! By taking in consideration what would be in my best interest, every treatment I have received there in the past two years has benefited me tremendously!”

~Barb B.*

“Dr. Shel is just , in a word, Awesome! I have been going to her for 10 years now, and couldn’t think of seeing anyone else.
Vickie, is  also , Awesome and well informed on all the new and wonderful technology that helps us ladies improve ourselves without surgery. She takes time to study the areas in which you want to have improvements made and talks you through it step by step.”

~Tracey B.*

“The absolute best experience I ever thought I could have. Delal gave me a laser treatment and it was my first time.  She understands my skin type, took her time, and explained the process every step of the way.  I was referred by a family member to go to the spa but I never could have thought in a million years my experience would be this great.  I’m an African-American with sensitive skin especially in my facial area.  She left my skin feeling great and I would recommend her to the masses for her professionalism and excellent work.  I’ve heard horror stories and she settled my fears and gave me just what I desired…great work!”

~Cee S.*

“Great experience. I started going here when I switched from a hormone doctor who was not treating me correctly.  They have been very attentive and patient as we sort through the proper treatment. I think relationships with medical teams are two way. If you don’t communicate well or let them know when something isn’t working, how can they know how to help or fix it?  I think all of the staff have been very informative and helpful, especially when I have had concerns. I specifically want to recognize Whitney, Lacy, Alda, Vicki and Dalal – super staff who want to make sure everything is done right and you are happy with the results, no matter what treatment you are seeking.”

~Kim C.*

“I had an amazing experience here the Alda the facility manager helped us and was very informative and I am definitely going to have the service done I couldn’t believe that so many services were offered under one company they’re definitely going to be my new BFF for a long time thank you so much for your kindness and consideration and I’ll be seeing you really soon”

~Celeste H.*

“Today, I feel like a new WOMAN!!! Before coming to Dr. Shel I felt like a turtle trying to get from place to place. I had no energy and was not motivated at all. I really had to push myself to get things done. Dr. Shel took me off my synthetic hormones and put me on the correct dosage of the Bio Identical hormones. She also corrected my Thyroid. The employees @ her office are warm and very kind. YOU MUST VISIT AND CHECK OUT WHAT SHE CAN DO FOR YOU!!!!”

~Seeju D.*

“I have been going to Dr. shel’s clinic for my IV infusion and felt my energy back when I was in my 20’s.Love Guadalupe who does my IV stick,to be honest I always am in a panic mode when it comes to needles,but I highly recommended her and she is the best of what she loves doing.Felt like my skin is glowing of which I expected and expecting more as I would love to complete the treatments I’m supposed to have.”

~Loralyn B.*

“There’s no other place I’d go for all my skincare needs. I’ve gone to Vicky at Dr. Shel’s for several years and trust her opinion, always. I’d gone to many other places in the past for Botox and IPL’s with no results. At Shel Wellness, Vicky walks me through the process before and during and explains what to expect later. My skin glows because of Vicky and Shel Wellness.”

~Veronica V.*

“I’ve been a patient of Dr Shel’s for about six years and owe her a tremendous “thank you.” My quality of life has greatly improved since my first visit. Being able to know exactly where my hormone/nutrient levels fall and knowing what I need/don’t need has greatly improved my overall performance in life.

I’ve always been impressed by her staff as they are eager to get you feeling your absolute best. The wide range of services/treatments available really place her spa above the competition.

I would definitely recommend Dr Shel Wellness & Med Spa to anyone looking to improve themselves from the inside-out as well as the outside-in.”

~Trent V.*

“I looked long and hard in my search for a holistic doctor. Someone who would look at and treat my entire body, mind and spirit, not just a symptom or two. I finally found that in Dr. Shel and her staff!  I was impressed from my initial contact by the depth of knowledge that you don’t normally find in a doctor’s office. From the first person I spoke with on the phone, to every other person in the practice, I was impressed to see just how knowledgeable they were about leaky gut syndrome. Something I have suffered from for years and no other doctor I have seen outside of my Naturopath even had a clue about.

I initially went in just for hormone pellet therapy having been treated horribly by the last doctor I saw after contracting a bacterial infection at the insertion site and not wanting to take antibiotics and steroids due to my leaky gut. Something the last doctor thought I was making up because she didn’t know what it was. I was again impressed when Dr. Shel wanted to make sure my leaky gut was healed before doing the hormone pellet insertion and adding any more stress to my body. That only makes sense. I’m really liking her already.

Much to my amazement, with Dr. Shel’s thorough testing, I discovered I also have a thyroid issue. Something my Naturopath had asked me about in the past but I had vehemently denied because as I later discovered, the previous doctor had only done a partial panel rather than a full screen on my thyroid. I had been under the impression that I had been getting a full thyroid panel. I was wrong.

When I received the results from the very thorough testing, I was so glad I made the decision to see Dr. Shel. There is so much more going on in my body that has to be addressed. Things that can be detrimental to my health if not taken care of now. Had I not made the decision to switch doctors, it would have been a total train wreck in just a matter of time.

I have to add that I have been having pellet hormones inserted for several years. This was the first insertion where I did not experience any type of sciatic issues afterward. Even with Dr. Shel having to remove some scar tissue from a previous insertion, this was by far my easiest and quickest recovery.

Dr. Shel and her amazing staff have been a blessing and an answer to my prayers.”

“The staff are very professional and I felt very comfortable. I’ve recommended my family to receive services because of how excellent the service and the staff are.”

“In our western society, it is common that when we become sick, we pursue some form of traditional medicine (i.e hospitals, surgeries, drugs) to cure it. Through billboards, commercials hospitals on every corner, we are constantly bombarded with this idea that western medicine is the best form of medicine in all cases. At least that was my belief until this last fall. One day I am studying for a medical school test and the next out of nowhere, I start to experience severe double vision (misalignment of the eyes that causes me to see of double of everything), and ptosis (weakness of both eyes that keeps me from being able to keep them open). Like the majority of society, I naturally reverted to western medicine as I attended the ER, consulted different neurologists, and performed procedures such as plasmapheresis. But despite all these efforts, the condition persisted. I continued to have double vision and ptosis which was quite a disability because it kept me from being able to continue my studies or even walk in a straight line. At this point we decided to pursue an alternative form of medicine in Dr. Shel’s Wellness Clinic. Here I understood the power of natural healing and cleaning via vitamins and clean eating. I met with Dr. Shel, she placed me on a bi weekly vitamin IV plan with detox and within a matter of weeks my condition was improving. There was no need for harsh drugs that do more bad then  good or unnecessary procedures/surgeries, just natural supplements that allow the body to correct itself. I can see again. I can read and walk in a straight line and it is because I gave this clinic a chance. From the second you enter the door, your health becomes their number one priority and you can tell they care about you and your health. Dr. Shel is a beast to say the least. A well known doctor in the Houston area, Dr. Shel is very knowledgeable about this subject matter and her medical background makes her very well equipped to view any condition from a traditional vs alternative standpoint. She genuinely wants to help you and will only recommend what she truly thinks is NECESSARY for your improvement. Regardless of what condition you have or at what stage of the disease you are in, I recommend you walk in and just give it a chance. Dr. Shel has several physician assistants that are very smart and provide free consultations, so you have nothing to lose. Plus, the clinic offers a nice selection of protein bar samples as you wait :).  I highly recommend this place.”

~Shawn O.*

“I’ve been going to Dr. Shel for years. Vickie is extremely professional and so knowledgeable. It is always a treat and I feel like I am home.”

~Noiva S.*

“The service was great when I walked in the front desk welcome with such happiness…Alda, my consultant, was great she showed me around  and very knowledgeable about the services. Also, she knew what would be great for me. The place is neat and clean and seems so relaxing.”

~Zaundra W.*

“Vickie is awesome. She is very professional,  knowlegable and accommodating during my entire process. The equipment used is very up-to-date and appears in great condition. The atmosphere is warm, comfortable and inviting. Process expectations are thoroughly understood and all factors (risks and benefits) are explained in great detail. I would definitely come here again for future beauty needs.”

~Your O.*

“I thoroughly enjoy going for my vitamin IV’s at Dr. Shel’s. Guadalupe, the IV nurse, is so gentle I barely notice the needle in my arm. The atmosphere is so pleasant and relaxing too. Most of all is the improvement in how I feel after treatment. This is why I am a repeat customer and will continue to come back again, and again.”

“Prior to my first visit with Dr. Shel in 2014, I had lost the desire to get out of bed in the morning at a young 18 years old. I was depressed, overweight, low energy, had difficulty focusing and remembering, and struggled to complete day-to-day tasks. I went to the gym for several hours a day and ran a half marathon, but never lost weight. As a freshman in college, this made my first year away from home nearly impossible. I visited other doctors who all claimed there was nothing wrong with me and wanted to prescribe birth control. However, I knew I was not well and a pill would not fix everything. I found Dr. Shel and made an appointment, which began my journey back to health. During my first appointment, I could tell that she really cared about helping me become happy and healthy again. She found that I had thyroid and progesterone deficiencies, as well as Candida Systemic Overgrowth. Other doctors I had visited before did not look into any of this because they said it was not likely for me to have thyroid and hormone problems at such a young age. Dr. Shel, however, looked beyond the surface and found the root of my illness. Now, with correct medication and supplements, I feel wonderful, both physically and mentally. I am able to balance college, work, social, family, and relationships with a smile on my face. In addition, due to my weight loss, I’m not scared of trying on clothes anymore. Over the past two years, Dr. Shel has transformed my health and given me my life back, and I would not be where I am today without her.”

~Brittany G.*

“I went to Dr. Shel’s Office for skin therapy to reduce the wrinkles on my face and the freckles from sun damage. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly about which treatment I should use. They gave me everything I needed before and after the procedures. Also, they were willing to answer any questions I had.

I am very happy with the results and will definitely be returning for other procedures. I I highly recommend them.”

~Nikki*

 

“I scheduled Ultherapy for the decolletage and fraxel for the arms. You are supposed to see results in about 6 months and it’s been about 2 months and I’m already seeing results. the medical aesthetician that has administered my treatments is Vickie and I can’t say enough good things about her. She is extremely knowledgeable and good at what she does. She is very thorough. She showed me before and after photos of my arms and I was blown away! The difference was incredible and I still have 3 more treatments to go. She goes out of her way to take care of you and will share any information with you that will help you on your quest to have a more youthful appearance. I feel that I have received more than my money’s worth at Dr. Shel’s center….especially because of Vickie!”

~Faith *

“EXCELLENT! Monica, in Dr Shel’s office really helped me out so much the other day! I got the wrong supplement and didn’t notice it until I got home in Pasadena, which is a 40 minute drive, one way. I called Dr Shel’s office and Monica answered. I told her my situation and how I was out of the supplement that I desperately needed. She understood and said she would ship it right out to me. It was Friday morning around 12:00. I assumed I would not get it until one day the next week. TO MY SURPRISE!! The supplement was on my doorstep the very next day, on Saturday! I was amazed!! I only had to go 2 days without my supplement, instead of a week! I love that Dr Shel treats her patients with all natural vitamins and supplements and with love and compassion. Thank you!!”

“WONDERFUL!! Dr Shel is great! 8 months ago I was at the emergency room. They stabilized me and I went to a primary care doctor and a GI doctor. They ran many tests and scans. They could not find out what was causing my symptoms. I went from Doctor to doctor and another ER room and a short hospital stay, still not finding what was causing the lightheadedness, dizziness, no appetite, extreme fatigue!! I was so ill, I could not do anything except sit on the couch all day. My whole life shut down, but no answers.

I knew Dr Shel because she had treated me in the past for bio identical hormones. 8 weeks ago, I went back to Dr Shel. She ran a few tests and found that I had Adrenal Fatigue, no one else could figure it out. All the symptoms I had were from Adrenal Fatigue!

She started me on a plan for wellness, she really cared about me as a person, she spent plenty of time listening to my story, and she wanted to get me well! With her treatment plan, I’m finally off the couch and I’ve actually made it to 2 of my grandkids BD parties. Before Dr Shel, I couldn’t attend anything.

I love that Dr Shel uses all natural methods for healing. Not prescription meds with side effects. Although insurance will not cover wellness doctors, but there is a program called CareCredit-12 months to pay it off with no interest!! Dr Shel will work with your financial situation, by customizing a plan for you! She really does care! Thank you, Dr Shel!”

“My sister has had been after me to come over here for about two years now and when I couldn’t stand myself any longer I decided to check Doctor Shel out. We drove over here one day a couple months ago and she took very, very good care of me. I was very much overweight, very bloated, no energy, no sex drive and she said she could fix all of that.

She explained that all the things that were wrong with me had a lot to do with my thyroid and the time in my life in perimenopause. I had a lot of bloodwork done for my hormones and my micronutrients were tested and to see if I had any allergies or lack of vitamins and minerals.

I’ve lost seven pounds already and I hope to lose quite a bit more. I’m on my way! My energy level is extremely improved and I’m of the couch and out of my PJ’s more and more every day. I would definitely recommend Doctor Shel’s office. Definitely make the appointment and get over here and see what she can do for you. She did very well for me. Thank you!”

~ Donna *

“I came in to find out about some of the options like filler and Botox to address the dark circles under my eyes, my lack of volume in my lips and some fine lines and wrinkles before my wedding. I had Voluma in my Chin, under my eyes, as well as addressing the hump on the side of my nose. I also had two lip injections over the course of two weeks, and I went from basically no lips at all to luscious, full lips that look natural. A lot friends say “Hey, you look different. You look really bright and glowing” but they have no idea that anythings done. The Botox I was really nervous about but it’s really natural, there wasn’t any pain during the injections and it just makes me feel younger and look brighter and more alive!”

~ Gloria*

“When I first came to Doctor Shel Wellness I had extreme chronic fatigue. Out of nowhere my body just went down hill. I could barely walk. My parents had to come and live with me because I couldn’t take care my son. I couldn’t do anything for myself The only thing I could do was walk from my bed to my bathroom, I was just that bad! I kept going to different doctors, but no doctor could tell me what was wrong with me. They did a lot of lab work but said everything was fine.

I did some research on the internet and I started reading about hormonal balance. I found Dr. Shel on the internet and decided to make the appointment. Dr. Shel did saliva testing for my hormones and sure enough everything was out of whack! Immediately she started me on the Meyer’s IVs and began the process to regulate my hormones. Over time I started seeing progress and eventually I was able to go back to work. My Dad had to drive me to work and he had to do that for a while, until until I totally got my strength back.

Now I’m at a place where I can drive myself to work and I can take care of myself. My son just graduated high school, he’s going to college son and I was so afraid that I wasn’t going to be able to be a part of that. I’m grateful The entire staff has treated me with love and kindness and they’ve been sweet to me. And I’m so grateful that I found this place. I’m grateful to God first and I’m grateful that he led me here to Dr. Shel Wellness Center. Thank you!!”

~ Vinokia*

“I have been a patient of Dr. Shel for about three months. What brought me to Dr. Shel was that I was becoming very frustrated because I couldn’t lose any weight and I was feeling pretty lousy. I had been on synthetic hormones for about 15 to 20 years and during that time I experience anxiety and I also had a an itchy allergy that I was always dealing with. I have had my thyroid checked almost every year but Doctors always told me that my thyroid was just fine. I still felt sluggish, tired, and I had no energy.

Dr. Shel changed my hormones from synthetic hormones to the Bio-identical hormones. She also discovered that I was having issues with my thyroid. Once I started the medication for the hormones and the thyroid in a matter of weeks I felt like a new woman. In fact I feel 20 years younger because I have energy now, and I’m sleeping at night. I really recommend for those of you ladies who feel lost, you can’t lose any weight, you’re tired, you’re exhausted, I really recommend that you come and see Dr. Shel!”

~ Seeju Dupree *

“I’m a new patient of Dr. Shels and I came here about two months ago. Before I came I was already on bioidentical hormones but I was still having issues that i felt had not been improved, such as fatigue, poor complexion, and most importantly…I could not sleep!

I made an appointment with Dr. Shel and a couple weeks later when all the lab results came back in it turned out some of my levels were too low and some were too high. She changed my compounded hormone cream to a different combination. Still progesterone and estrogen but a different formula. She also added a progesterone capsule and a supplement plan to help my concerns.

It’s been about a month or so later and all of my symptoms have definitely improved. Now I’m sleeping like a baby, my complexion is clear and I definitely feel more energetic! I think Dr. Shel is a wonderful lady to speak with. She puts you at ease. She is concerned and she’s a wonderful listener. I feel like we’re on the road to much improved health and I highly recommend her. She’s very skilled, intelligent and a very gifted lady.”

And tho I’m at a little stand still concerning the IV Therapy you suggested to remove the Heavy Toxins, because of finances right now but, I am still moving forward in testing out another remedy that may have some potentials; Chlorella ,Spirulina, and Cilantro.

Your service is a Blessing as I’ve never witness a health team that works so powerfully together as you guys, and my hearts desire is to spread the Good News to every women who may be at a lost (as I was) on how to Reclaim their Health. I can now say; HELP has available at Dr. Shel Wellness Center.

I feel very welcome and I am treated very respectful. I do like the staff and I am very happy with Vickie.

~ Luisa Albo *

“The team here are absolutely fantastic!!! I appreciate being able to have all of my concerns answered by one physician, in one location. It certainly makes life more convenient if you don’t have to explain what other doctors have reported or done concerning health issues. I love the “wellness” portion and making sure that all needs, not just physical, are addressed.”

“I’m very, very pleased with the Coolsculpting treatment I had, and have recommended it to all my friends that have maintained stable weight but have resistant areas of fat.”

“My journey began with Dr. Shel approximately 5 years ago. I was tired all of the time, overweight, and I had little confidence in myself. I consulted with Dr. Shel, and she did the nutritional testing to see what I was lacking in my diet, she checked my hormones and thyroid, and she referred me to a nutritionist to help revamp my diet. Dr. Shel also put me on a vitamin protocol to help me to bring the vitamins and minerals I was deficient in up to the appropriate levels.

As a result of the advice and treatments Dr. Shel recommended, I lost 26 lbs. which I have been able to avoid regaining because her nutritionist taught me how to eat to nourish my body and to avoid gaining weight, my energy levels increased dramatically, and my self esteem was much improved.

We also discussed some aesthetic possibilities to help improve my overall appearance. At that time, I had the Laser Genesis and the Titan Laser procedure. I also had Botox and Juvaderm injections. My results were dramatic.I was recently divorced after 40 years of marriage. Needless to say, I was devastated and I found my self esteem at an all time low. I went to see Dr. Shel to see what I could do to feel better about myself. I have recently had Botox injections and I have also had the Ultherapy treatment on my neck and jowl area.

My results have been amazing. One of the wonderful things about Ultherapy is the improvement is gradual. I have been told I look much younger than I did a few years ago, but no one can tell what I have had done to enhance my appearance. Also, there is no down time with Ultherapy. I feel so much better about myself.

Thanks to Dr. Shel and her wonderful staff, I have been able to move forward with my life with confidence.

I am a huge fan!”

“Thank you for really listening, Dr. Shel, and sharing your expertise and guidance in such a compassionate way! I’m very appreciative of the wonderful demeanor of all your staff, who are all top notch! What a difference you’ve made in my life!”

“I love coming here because prior to my visits I did not know where to turn health wise. Dr. Shel and her staff are always so kind and always take the time out to answer my questions. I do feel that this will be the year that I restore my health.”

“I’ve only written a handful of reviews in my life. I only do so when a service or product is exceptionally BAD & I think people should know; or when a service or product is exceptionally GOOD, & I think people should know.

I’ve been a patient at Dr. Shel’s for 2 months. I was immediately impressed upon my first visit with Dana (complimentary consult). She was extremely knowledgeable & seemed genuinely concerned & invested in helping me achieve MY goals.

Now, this is not my first rodeo. I’ve tried EVERY diet, read dozens of books on the subjects of weight loss & nutrition, tried pills & supplements, hired nutritionists & trainers, joined gyms… Day one Dr. Shel’s staff turned me on to a program that works. Yes, I was very skeptical & expected the same non-results I’ve seen for the majority of my adult life. Surprisingly, I met my weight loss goals in only two months (30+ Lbs gone; BMI from 31 to 20).

Kristie, Dr. Shel’s PA is amazing; never leaving my side, every step of the way. ANY question, concern, or difficulty she has offered appropriate support, expertise, guidance, prescription, etc. She makes my continued success & overall well being her top priority & works efficiently to ensure that I’m equipped to do my part as well.

Both Kristie & Dana made it clear that they’re available any time, if I need anything & they are. Failure is just not an option for these wonderful women! And I have to say, failure can be pretty easy when it comes to any weight loss program. They have been realistic with me & have sugar coated nothing. It’s been inspiring & has given me the strength I needed to do my difficult part in the plan.

When I say it ‘only’ took 2 months, in no way do I suggest it was easy…it was not easy, not cheap, but totally been worth it–the single best investment I’ve ever made. It’s required lots of discipline, & that I adopt the same winning attitude they have.

The various traditional medical doctors I’ve seen before Dr. Shel, point blank, told me the reason I was so exhausted all the time, gaining weight, finding it impossible to lose weight was because of my age (I’m in my mid 30’s–give me a break) & because I’m the mother of 2 young children (I know women with 4 children who work full time & manage to keep it together). The traditional medicine docs also pretty much told me I needed to accept my situation; that I would always have difficulty losing weight; and I would always struggle keeping it off. Yes–it’s no wonder I was so depressed.

(For the record–listen up traditional medicine docs–my children are WONDERFUL, a daily delight…they are the best gifts a person could have…they give me joy THEY do not deplete me; they are in no way the source of what ails me!!)

I met with Dr. Shel for the first time a month into the program. She totally gets what I knew in my heart to be true. Women don’t have to be tired and feel run-down all of the time–there are causes to this problem & solutions; we identified both. We also found reasons for my difficulties losing weight in the past. Failure is not an option for her either; she confidently told me that what I was experiencing could be managed. I went from feeling like traditional medicine’s most complicated & unsolvable mystery to probably one of her easiest, straightforward, ‘typical’ cases. She was the first doctor to confirm what I’ve always believed…the thyroid, weight, fatigue, & endometriosis issues I’ve endured for years very likely are related to one another & have a likely contributor (hormonal imbalance). When I’ve asked mainstream doctors about links or causes to these issues, I get clueless blank stares.

I now have a realistic & doable plan of action for my future. I believe that some of the discoveries made through the bloodwork & hormone testing will guide me in making better choices for my daughter. I can now learn what can to be done to help her avoid some of the pitfalls I’ve endured. Now that I have this information, I can provide my daughter with wholesome nutrition & an optimal environment that supports balance for her.

Thanks to ALL of the staff there, I truly feel my very best. Even the front desk staff offer genuine words of affirmation & help out in any way they can. I haven’t felt this energetic, alive, productive and WELL since my childhood. I feel blessed to have met them & am so appreciative of their role in my journey. I feel like the mother my children deserve to have, the wife I’ve always wanted to be, & the me I was born to be.

If you decide to go forward with their services, testing, and plans for wellness…do so with an open mind & with the dedication & discipline with which they exemplify & bring to the table. It worked for me! It’s not magic, it’s not free; you’ll get what you pay for. Seek the truth & be prepared to learn something new. I had to step outside of my comfort zone & trust in something I wasn’t all that sure about. It was a leap of faith I’m so glad I took.”

“Dr. Shel’s entire staff are welcoming and professional each time I visit her office. All staff members take the necessary time for me to feel comfortable or to explain information so I understand completely.

I can’t explain how beneficial I found the testing for Thyroid, Hormone Levels and Food Allergies/Sensitivities. After getting my results back and following Dr. Shel’s recommendations, I have lost 34 lbs. in 7 months (my goal was 35-40 lbs.). My brain fog is gone. I can remember things again. My high energy level has returned. My hair and skin look healthy again. My libido has greatly improved. I feel like I’m 30 again instead of 50! I recommend Dr. Shel to all of my friends and family.”

Kathy“Three years ago I felt that life “as I knew it” was over for me. In my youth I was considered “a looker”. (If I do say so myself). Nice face and a thick head of luxuriant strawberry blonde hair. Time goes on and hair color fades (easily fixed by a bottle) and things start to droop. This is natural, right? Whatever happened to aging gracefully? To top things off I started having serious trouble sleeping, had absolutely NO libido and felt very depressed. I figured this was just what aging was about and did nothing about it. Then it happened… My hair started falling out. Handfuls of hair in the shower. Yikes! I needed help!

I went to my general practitioner and asked for hormone help and was told, “They don’t do that”. Went to a gynecologist and was told I can’t have hormones because I am on coumadin (a blood thinner). I was having a panic attack – seriously. Then I happened to tune in to Great Day Houston and saw Dr. Shel as she was explaining how she could help women with compounded hormones – as well as many other methods of treatment. So… I made the call and am I ever glad I did!

After thorough testing, Dr. Shel was able to put me on medicines compounded just for me – coumadin, and all! I took Revage treatments for my hair loss. A painless 20 minutes twice a week. Within 6 months I finally had the nerve to go to my hair stylist and have some color put back in. (I went for months and months not daring to touch it and even afraid to wash too much as it always fell out in the shower).

Once I started getting my hair colored again I noticed that things were drooping around my chin. I looked in to some of the aesthetic treatments offered at the spa and decided to bite the bullet and get something done. I had laser skin tightening and Radiesse fillers. I look many years younger, no more drooping and wrinkling and am actually feeling quite frisky! When people I meet find out my actual age their jaws literally drop! I am once again considered a (mature) looker! (If I do say so myself!)”

“Counting my blessings today and you all are at the top of my list. Everyone was so kind and patient with me . You all were right I only have some redness & some puffiness . I am so pleased and know the outcome will be beautiful. Thanks you all !!! God is good!” *

“Recently I went to Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center because I had been suffering with symptoms of low thyroid and what I suspected was adrenal fatigue. But I could not get a doctor to believe me. They kept saying everything was normal. Dr. Shel was one of the first doctors to listen to me and diagnosis my problem. It turns out I was just on the wrong thyroid medication, and with a few adjustments I felt tremendously better. I did not have adrenal fatigue after all, it was just poorly treated thyroid. I was relieved to find out my problems were not as big as I thought! Thank you Dr. Shel.” *

“Words really cannot describe the countless blessings that have been bestowed on me because of Dr. Shel and her knowledge, skills and abilities to help me. I recently traveled overseas to Italy and although it was a lifetime experience, I unfortunately contracted an upper respiratory infection. After several doctors, hospital visits, I returned home and which quickly turned to Dr. Shel for a solution. She recommended Myer’s cocktail, which was exactly what I needed to get well. I’m so grateful to have Dr. Shel’s support.”

“I simply want to say Thank You for all that you ladies are doing for me! I can’t tell you how awesome I feel, getting back to the “Me” that I haven’t known in sometime! So far, I’m at a 33lb loss and although I still want to lose about that much more, I’m thrilled to be at a halfway point. I’m being complimented daily and I simply feel better. I have more energy and honestly… I look forward to eating better and the work-outs that make up my “New” daily routine. I’ve been battling weight loss on and off for years, and although it’s something you yourself have to make up your mind to do, the nudge Dr. Shel gave me to get started (and her kind offer for the HCG diet), was the motivation needed to get me back on track. I’m sincerely grateful to you and your staff (I feel their encouragement and support every time I come in, and that fuels me even more). Dr. Shel Wellness, you ladies are forever in my heart! Muah!!!!”

“Dr. Shel has been an answer to my prayer. I came to her about 2 years ago with post menopausal symptoms, i.e.: hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, weight gain, mood swings etc. She tested my hormone levels and got my medications on track. Within just a few weeks of taking her recommended hormone replacements, I was sleeping great and no more hot flashes! I feel wonderful! I feel like a new person, like I’m young again! And now women that are half my age cannot keep up with me. Thank you Dr. Shel!!!

What stands out about Dr. Shel is; she is caring, knowledgeable, and really listens to her patients. I would highly recommend her to anyone because you will not be disappointed. The staff at the wellness center is friendly and always willing to help any way they can and that makes you feel wonderful when you go there.”
