Absolutely awful nobody answers the phones...good luck every getting through the phone lines. He is so hard headed and flat out inpatient with some people that in makes me wonder why he is in this field. He doesn't always get his diagnoses right..in the beginning and in the end..was thinking about going back after years to give it another shot but it's not even worth it.I am sure if they can't even answer there phones they don't need my business.- ashley

WHAT!! 3 STARS?? Wow... Dr. Shanklin quite literally saved my life. He took his time with me. I'm an actual person, not a patient. You may wait a lol bit to see him, but isn't that the sign of a great Dr? He never knows what problem you may be having when you walk in his door, but you can be sure he will address it with YOU Thoroughly ..in words we understand ! EXCELLENT DR!

Dr. Shanklin is an excellent psychiatrist. He is perceptive and progressive in his treatment with patients. The 3 star review is horribly inappropriate. He gives the patient the time they deserve and never short-changes the patient like other psychiatrist in the community. I refer to him often as I want my patients to have the best care they can get.
