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."

Excellent, I have been having issues with headaches for over a year and my other physician wouldn’t listen to me. One visit to Dr. Shanklin and he figured out what was going on.
