Joel Shanklin, MD Reviews (180)


I had a faceshow, i am really satisfy , Kendall did an excellent job. The staff are really nice .

Tummy Tuck

The surgeon answered all my questions and gave me excellent service


The staff is great. I also feel like the pricing is fair and they are understanding. I was priced about 5,000 for my procedure, while in the town where I currently live they wanted 3,000 more and it was 100 just to talk to the doctor about the procedure. I drove four hours to visit DR. Shanklin and will continue to do so when ever needed.

Body Lift

The staff and surgeon talked and explained everything throughly. Truly answered all my questions. Treated me like a person and not a number. Was a very medic experience.

Fat Transfer

Dr. Shanklin made me feel very comfortable and was very thorough. He looked me over and explained exactly what he will do if I were to have this procedure done.

Breast Augmentation

No complaints! Best experience ever! Cleanliness and Friendliness. I didn't feel like a number more of a valued patient. The patient coordinator Jessica was very memorable and helped make my decision at ease. She created a warm friendly environment. The nurse gave me the confidence to find the right breast size for my frame which was the best idea. I've had a procedure with this office years ago and remember and loved it enough to return!

Tummy Tuck

I was satisfied with the surgeon and the consultation


Because the doctor made sure I understood everything about the procedure. How I'm constantly loosing weight in my mid-section.


Love Dr Shanklin, love the staff.

Botox Cosmetic

I got no results for the $200. procedure.

Tummy Tuck

Doctor Shanklin and the team are wonderful Great result

Injectable Fillers

Dr.Shanklin and his staff are very knowledgeable about the individual needs of his patients. I feel very comfortable talking to them. I wouldn't trust my care with any other team. I look younger Everytime I walk out of that building.

Tummy Tuck

I was extremely nervous about making my appointment. I have very bad self esteem and body image issues. Every single person I spoke to was so incredibly nice! Once in the private room to do my pictures the nurse insured me I was beautiful and they would o my be making me even more beautiful!! Dr. Shanklin himself is so nice and not once did I have vet feel uncomfortable while undressed!!! I'm so excited and can not wait to stop lactating so I can set up my appointment

Face Lift

Kathy was very sincere & honest. Dr Huntley was very interested in what I was most concerned with.

Breast Augmentation

Great place to use I would never go anywhere else!!! Staff was awesome caring and made me feel at ease. Clean environment. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants a procedure done go here its the only one I would ever use.

Breast Augmentation

The whole experience were above my satisfaction.

Injectable Fillers

I had my lips and forehead done during the event in March. And this is the first time I have had my forehead done that didnt cause my eyebrows to fall flat. I am pleasantly surprised by that. I had filler in both cheek areas. The end result has given me a sunken eye bag look. I have had these before and I got more lift and fuller results. I can barely tell I got it done :(

Breast Augmentation

Friendly staff and surgeon specially Dr.shanklins nurse she's so pleasant and helpful and made my experience as easy as possible overall I highly recommend their service to my friends It boast my confidence specially wearing bikinis in the summer and sexy clothes


The results are amazing and exactly what I'd hoped for

Arm Lift

I was referred to my surgeon from a coworker. From the very beginning I was treated with respect, kindness and honest caring from everyone at the office. Any questions I had, the staff made sure to answer before I left my consult. This was my first visit to talk about the procedure I wanted and I couldn't have been happier with the experience.
