in Savannah, GA |
I experienced blood loss during my surgury, which resulted in me becoming anemic. Upon completion of the surgery Dr. Shanklin did not offer this information to my family. In fact he told them everything went well. When I got home I started having major complications and was hosptalized after collapsing from the results of the blood loss and the combination of the medication. I do not trust this doctor and I do not recommend his services. He seems a little shady.

Dr Shanklin made me feel really at ease in my consultation with him. He sat down and spent alot of time explaining all of my options for my breasts and my abdomen for my mommy makeover. He was very attentive to all my questions and I really appreciated that from him. His staff is awesome, very nice, and I love Jessica and Julie. They treated me like I was family.
