Never going to touch me again

Horrible Doctor. Insensitive, lack of desire to help. Neglect leading to MAJOR complications post surgery. I'm now physically scared for life because he can't do his job.

Dr. Shelnutt is the kindest, gentlest and most patient doctor I've ever been too. He always takes the time to answer my questions and make me feel cared for. He was very sensitive as we struggled with losing our third baby and there was no doubt that he genuinely cared for us. So glad to have found this doctor!

Great OBGYN

Dr Shelnutt and his entire staff is wonderful. The whole process can be daunting but they are with you every step of the way! Marybeth and Tonya were always so helpful as well. At every visit they tried to get me and out quickly which shows they care about your time. He always addressed my concerns & took the time it needed to answer any questions at each visit. Because I had to have a c-section, I wanted a natural cesarean, and he got as close as possible to all my requests. I was able to see my son at the time of his arrival and hold him maybe 3 minutes after birth. My baby stayed with me from then on out, while Dr. Shelnutt, finished the c-section. I cannot express enough, what an excellent doctor he is.
