Joel Shanklin, MD Reviews (208)

Mommy Makeover

Excellent communication before & after surgery. Genuine desire to make customers/pat feel listened to and cared for. Great results. Exactly as described. They were with me every step of the way.

Breast Augmentation

Great reviews

Breast Augmentation

The staff is always available to address any concerns.

Breast Augmentation

I feel more confident every day and happier in everything I wear. They were super quick to fit me in to get my operation and it was a very quick recovery. I am completely happy with my results as they are exactly what I was hoping for. I only wish I had contacted them sooner.


Friendly staff.

Eyelid Surgery

I was there to have some stitches removed from my noise and Dr. Shanklin and I briefly discussed the eye Lift Surgery. I met with his Scheduler. I will have to miss a day of work because the Dr. only preforms surgery on Tuesday and Thursday. I have the actual Pre-Op consultation on the 11th. So we are currently discussing a Pre-Pre-Op consultation!

Tummy Tuck

I was referred by a friend because of her positive experience. I have also had such a wonderful experience and excellent care through a difficult process. It was imperative to have a compassionate, thorough, and knowledgeable doctor and staff to get me through my procedure. A tummy tuck is a very invasive procedure, but with the proper care you will be happy with your final result. The follow up has been the best part. I have never felt at any time that my doctor or his staff rushed me through an appointment. They have helped me recover through all the stages of this process and kept me informed.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Shanklin is amazing at what he does. He explained every thing he was going to do before the surgery and what I should expect after the surgery. One other surgeon wouldn't preform my tummy tuck revision. Another surgeon I sought out had a surgery plan i didn't agree with. Dr. Shanklin had a great game plan to start off with and seemed very optimistic about the surgery.

Breast Augmentation

Making the appointment, the surgeon chose my location rather than having me drive 45 minutes. I didn't wait for more than 2 minutes to be seen star signing in, the staff was extra friendly and knowledgeable when I asked questions, the surgeon came in helped me choose a size to go with. When I mentioned I was aiming for a C cup he informed me that the size implants I chose would put me into a D cup but ensured me that it's ok because we went for what I liked when I looked at my frame with those implants. I was so impressed with the consult that I made the appointment then and there for my procedure. I didn't plan to have the procedure until about 6 months later than I actually did. I am very pleased with doctor Shanklin and his staff.


Dr. Shanklin and his team went above and beyond what I expected. His bedside manner is incrediable. They made sure I understood everything about the procedure. All questions were welcomed and there was no rush during the consultation. I will absolutely refer Dr. Shanklin and his team to my friends and family. I was 100% comfortable during the consultation and I'm excited about my up coming procedure.

Breast Augmentation

I was satisfied with my experience. I was not happy that I would have to have 2 separate surgeries due to down time. Two other surgeons are telling me I can have 1 surgery with all 3 procedures, and no drains.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Shanklin and his staff are wonderful. They are friendly, prompt, and professional.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Shanklin took the time to answer all my questions and made sure I understood the procedure from start to finish, my consultation was not rushed and he showed genuine concern. In my opinion He’s the best I’ve met this far very satisfied

Juvéderm® XC

Consult was very informative Staff was friendly

Tummy Tuck

Very friendly and I got all the information I needed

BOTOX® Cosmetic

very pleasant experience. Physician took time with me and explained the benefits of the procedure and suggested other treatments to think pressure! I'll be back.


Every time I go I'm in in and out. Staff is always nice. Just the problem with the restlyn but from the reviews online it looks like that always. Wished that was explained that a bubble could form and if it did what to do about it.

Face Lift

I liked everyone there. Before & after photos were great
