Patient Comments (5)
Baton Rouge, LA |
I'm sure that Dr. Kenyatta is an incredible doctor but was never able to meet with her as the office receptionist was extremely rude. As a new patient, I realized that I didn't want this type of interaction before seeing my healthcare provider so I decided to find someone else with a friendly office staff.

Dr. Shamlin (both Kenyatta and Tasha) are absolutely wonderful! My daughter has seen them both and they have taken EXCELLENT CARE of her. They answer all of my questions efficiently and effectively and I never leave unsatisfied.

My visits with Dr. Shamlin have been encouraging and relieving. I found her to be empathetic, knowledgeable, friendly, and thorough. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends.
in Denham Springs, LA |
I LOVE Dr. Shamlin as my doctor. She takes the time to listen to you about your concerns. Then staff is friendly enough; however, trying to talk to them over the phone is almost impossible! It takes me forever to get a prescription renewed. At the moment it is almost 2 weeks trying to get a medicine approved for me, which all started over trying to get the fax to her for approval. The staff could be a bit more punctual in their efforts to get the prescription ready.
Baton Rouge, LA |
I would recommend the doctor but not the office. They have made several mistakes from giving me someone else's medical record in my lab report to giving me conflicting information on referrals and medications. I don't know that I'll be returning to her because I can't trust the office.
