Dr. Shanklin is a wonderful guy. I would definitely recommend him to anybody. I'm so thankful that I was referred to him than anybody else...????

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.
