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

During my career as a family physician in a rural setting, I learned markers of a well organized practice. Dr. Shanklin has been mastering those techniques. I enjoy his office's prompt and pleasant responses to our varied health questions and needs. He's well read, quick to explain the rationale of his treatment, and aptly guides our health decisions. We have easy access to our records and to his staff as needed. I've invited several acquaintances to seek his care and will continue doing so.
