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.

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

Fat Transfer

I felt that Dr. Shanklin and the staff really were there to help and to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. I was asked what changes I would like to see, not just what Dr. S or other medical staff thought I should have. At all times I felt well-informed about what was happening, and my partner was given excellent instructions on how to take care of me afterward. The overnight stay in the surgical facility was something I originally didn't think I would need, but I greatly appreciated having someone to care for me overnight. Though I am young and very healthy, my oxygen levels were low post-surgery, and that was monitored regularly, along with use of an oxygen mask. I felt that I was also given excellent post-operative care in my follow-up appointments, and I have always felt the staff to be kind and non-judgemental.


De Shanklin was great! Happy w the results!

Tummy Tuck

This surgery has allowed me to be more physically active and allowed my workout results to show. I no longer have abdominal sweat or pain from the weight pulling. Now walking up stairs is a breeze. I feel that following my post-op instructions helped me with my recovery.


I was very pleased with the knowledge and hospitality shown to me by all of Dr. Shanklin’s staff. I feel confident I will receive the best care possible.


Staff is extremely professional and courteous. Wait time was minimal and I was in and out in a timely manner Expectations are expressed beforehand and all expectations were met.
