Meet The Founder
Dr. C. Richard Shephard
Founder, President, & Senior Clinical Advisor
After decades in the medical field, Dr. Shephard saw a need to bring innovation and new cutting-edge medical treatments to patients, by educating physicians and providing an avenue for them to obtain this technology and use it to diagnose and better treat their patients.
Innovative technology should do three things: First, generate better patient outcomes, second, mitigate physician risk, and finally, bring new sources of revenue to medical practices.
Shephard Group Healthcare Partners has been accomplishing this since 2004.

This is where it all started...
Currently based outside Nashville, Tennessee, and affiliated with Vanderbilt Medical Center, our company was founded in 1994, as Guru Marketing Group, a medical marketing firm focused on driving new business to healthcare providers through our custom-designed strategic marketing programs.
In 2000, we landed a long-term contract with AmeriPath Corporation, the nation's largest provider of anatomic pathology services. With our contract completed successfully in 2004, we discovered a missing piece in the ability to get new medical technology into individual practices. This led to the founding of Shephard Group Healthcare Partners, LLC.
SGHP is a medical research and contract sales organization that works to develop new ways of treating common healthcare conditions, developing new technologies and techniques, and building new turn-key protocols for diagnosing and treating some of medicines most challenging disease states.
We are the fastest growing medical distribution companies in the country and poised to be a $1-billion company over the next year.
Watch us grow while we save lives, ease suffering, and bring strength to healthcare practices across the U.S.
