Breast Augmentation

I loved the atmosphere. I was made to feel extremely comfortable and procedure went well. Outcome was great. The nurses were awesome. Very personable.


Dr. Joel Shanklin and his stuff met my concerns. I got the look that I wanted.

Breast Reduction

The nurse even gave us her cell phone in case we had questions or concerns after!

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Shanklin and his staff were the absolute best. I was nervous about the procedure but Dr. Shanklin answered all of my questions. The nursing staff was on point with the care I received at the surgery center and the nurse clearly informed my husband about what to do post surgery. I couldn’t have asked for better care.


I am highly satisfied with my experience because Dr. Shanklin and his staff made me feel very comfortable. He listened and provided feedback when I started to feel nervous about the surgery and the prevention of blood clots. Dr Shanklin and his staff treated me with dignity and respect and was very professional. I am very pleased with my results and looking forward to going back as well as recommended his services to others.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

They took the time to listen to me and what I wanted. Then recommended the best way to achieve the results I wanted.

Skin Cancer Surgery

I had skin cancer removed and Dr. Shanklin performed the closing of the wounds. There was no consultation. The professionalism and friendliness of the doctor and staff is second to none. I am very pleased with this experience.


I Look Fabulous and I Love Myself even more!! Just The Best Thank You Very Much Dr. Joel Shaklin

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I appreciate the professionalism of the staff and that Dr. Shanklin listened to what I wanted the results to be and how best to achieve those results.

Mommy Makeover

I honestly had no clue what to expect but Dr Shanklin, Marsha, and Amy were right beside me every step of the way. Any question or concern I had was always taken care of whether it be a phone call or while in office. After having three children Dr. Shanklin helped me gain my confidence back! My incisions were precise and placed in such a way where you can’t even tell I had any type of augmentation.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Always a great experience with Dr. Shanklin, Marsha and staff! Love this office and have always been very pleased with my results, treatment and honesty of results and procedures.
