What People Say About Dr. John Shelnutt, MD
Reply
I came to see Dr. Shelnutt about getting an IUD because I had painful cramps and thought an IUD could help. His first question to me was if I was in a committed relationship. I was confused. What did that have to do with me wanting and IUD for cramping? I told him no, but that I was not sexually active. He would not give me and IUD because I was not in a committed relationship, which is absolute garbage. I know plenty of women not in committed relationships who have IUDs. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

Dr. Shelnutt is an amazing doctor. Very compassionate, & has a true love of babies & truly desires to meet the specific needs of each patient. However, the receptionist desk needs a significant amount of work. You can't have a team of amazing nurses & a wonderful doctor like Dr. Shelnutt, but have an uncaring, unengaged, & rude receptionist.
