I’ve yet to go through with my appointment with this doctor. What holds me back, is the fact that I’ve never had a face to face meeting. I find this very odd that the PA scheduled me for a colonoscopy, and yet never uttered a word to the doctor who would be doing the procedure. I have/had questions I should have been able to ask this doctor and yet they go unanswered. How do you determine a colonoscopy is what’s needed when the said doctor wasn’t there for my appointment?

Dr. Shekleton performed an unplanned surgery for me in June. He and his staff have been amazing to work with. Very kind, explained things well, and compassionate. When calling into the office calls were returned promptly. Great doctor and staff.

Dr. Shekleton was very cordial and straightforward when I had my consult to set up an endoscopy. He explained what to expect both during and after procedure. I was very pleased with my appointment.

I'm sorry to say, this man should not be a doctor. He is hard to talk to. So intimidating and seems so unconcerned with his patient. When people come to you, they are sick, they need your help. I'm disappointed to say that I never received anby help from this man after several visits. It's very sad and discouraging. It should not be allowed. I wish "this type" of doctor would change/improve or cease. Why should patients have to pay for this type of service? Such a waste of time and money.

Not the best bedside manner.... I have seen him multiple times and he never seems caring or concerned with your condition. I feel like he just gives me Medicine (without fully understanding my problem) and pushes me out the door. Three procedures with him, I'm still having the same issues years later. Not s fan.

I first saw Dr. Shekleton after 3 visits to Frankfort Regional ER for chest pain. The pain was in my sternum area but very sharp. The ER ruled out a heart attack each time and they said I should see a GI doctor and gave me Dr. Shekleton's name. I had an appointment with him and we scheduled a colonoscopy and endoscopy. The endoscopy revealed a peptic ulcer. He prescribed two medications which eliminated the ulcer determined by another endoscopy 4 months later. I highly recommend Dr. Shekleton!

Dr. Shekleton is very thorough in his treatment to patients. He reviewed my medications and stop me taking a medication that was responsible for erosion of my stomach. Even Cleveland Clinic doctor missed in advising me to stop this medication.
