I hope he's ok. He helped me through a very bad time and I might not be here if it wasn't for his help.

Dr Shelton is extremely ill which has forced him to close his practice and seek immediate treatment. I am so thankful for his compassion and expertise during an extremely difficult time. Please don't use this site as an opportunity to spout negative statements. This is not the time or place.

Dr. Shelton has been my doctor for about 16 years. I think he is a great doctor; I love him: and I wish him the best. I'm keeping him in my thoughts and prayers. I hope the treatment he is seeking is successful.

I am a former patient of Dr. Shelton. Does anyone know how he is doing? I am very concerned. This has been such a shock. He was by far the best psychiatrist I have ever had.

Dr. Shelton has treated my mother, sister and brother for genetic psychiatric issues. He's a wonderful doctor and is well respected. We are very concerned and care for him and his family. He is an honorable and caring doctor.

And to the person who so believes in karma, you're comments are in poor taste and are very insensitive. If you can't say anything good, keep your comments to yourself! Were here because we care and support him and his family. Not to bash him when he us critically ill.

That person has every right to voice their opinion just like you do.

Prescription medication abuse is on the rise, and doctors are just as much to blame as a street level dealer.

Grieve as much as you like, Tami O. but don't get angry when the others smile at the devil getting his due.

I agree that everyone has a right to their opinion, but karma doesn't bite people who are trying to do the best for others, only those who wish bad things for other people.....

Dr. Shelton had a heart transplant Dec. 26, 2011 and is doing very well based on the Lexington Herald-Leader article in early February. The point of the article was that most people in need of donor hearts did not cause their condition by behavior/lifestyle choices.

Hope this relieves those of you who have shown how much you care. I know how relieved I was to see the paper that day!

And just for the record, Dr. Shelton was my doctor for 15 years, and I couldn't have been more pleased with our doctor/patient relationship.

Thank you Louise for the update...I am very relieved. I was able to go on-line at Kentucky.com and review the article. I'm so happy for Dr. Shelton and his family.

Dr. Shelton was my doctor as well as my friend.
I loved him so much! It has taken me forever to find anyone like him!! I am so happy for him and his family! They have truly helped me!
I wish I knew how to send him a note of THANKS!!
He helped me through some horrible times in my life!
I don't think I would have made it without him!!

Dr Sheldon just received a new heart from an organ transplant donor. He was a 16 year old boy. He is doing wonderfully!:) Sad about the little boy. Dr Sheldon even went to the grieving Mother and let her feel her babies (16 year old child's heart beat) and said that's your baby! This is such a touching thing that happened!It made me cry the video is on cnn.com

WOW! Comparing him to the Devil... hmm.. sounds like you need some counseling services. Besides when Dr. Shelton was at Charter he was fresh out of college. Maybe you should have sought a more experienced doctor at that time. At any rate, laughing at someone's serious illness tells me a whole lot about you! Besides if people want to misuse drugs they will find a way. Maybe the people in your life lied about their condition to get drugs instead of truly seeking professional help.
