      Dr. Shamlin as the worst bedside manner. She always has an attitude and talk down to her patients. She does not care about the needs of her patients. Her sister has the same nasty attitude.
      Baton Rouge, LA |
      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
