This content was provided by Dr. Shanklin "I enjoy involving my patients in their own care. I have found that when people are more engaged in their health care that their outcomes are improved and it easier for me to do my job.

I love taking care of entire families and multiple generations."

Emily Lehrmann was amazing! She took great care of our son and was a great choice for a second opinion! It’s good to know we can receive quality healthcare even if tour pediatrician or specialist is unable to accommodate. Top notch care from top to bottom!
