The staff was very friendly. Dr Shanklin explained things and answered my questions, excellent bed side manner. Dr Shanklin's assistant the day of my consultation made me feel comfortable and did not rush my decisions and answered my millions of questions.

Mommy Makeover


Tummy Tuck Revision

I feel Dr. Shanklin and his staff took the time to listen to my concerns from my previous surgery. He gave me honest feedback and made me feel more than comfortable. Dr. Shanklin and his staff was very helpful, professional and comforting. I was given honest, straightforward feedback and my expectations were more than met. I feel that both he and his staff truly care about each patient and want it to be a good experience


Dr. Shanklin and his staff were very polite. Respectful, considerate, NOT judgemental, and overall professional. They also are well multi-tasked they concentrated on me without making me feel rushed or like I was waiting all day to be seen.

Neck Lift

Happy to hear how he could make me a happier person correcting my neck and Eyes


Dr. Shanklin is very professional as well as his staff. This is my second surgery with him. I absolutely love his mannerisms and work. His post operative care is also amazing. He is the only PS I trust to operate on me. I did a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and lift, and liposuction on my arms in November on yesterday he did liposuction to my upper abdomen, flanks and thighs. He is also cautious on how much work can be done at one time. He genuinely cares for his patients. Overall I only trust Dr. Shanklin and has recommended several girlfriends to him so well.
