It's my first time having a male Obgyn, and I was admittedly nervous at first. I'm a pretty easy patient with very few issues, but I still get very anxious near appointments. A friend recommended Dr. Shelnutt because he's incredibly kind and approachable, and because he made her feel heard. I made the switch with some anxiety, but I have been so thankful I did!
Dr. Shelnutt never makes me feel rushed or silly for my questions or views, and I always feel valued as a person and like I'm truly in charge of my own body and involved in my own care. He hears out my questions, answers honestly and with details, and never pushes for options I'm even slightly uncomfortable with. It's very easy to feel invalidated and powerless because there's so much vulnerability and can be a lot of emotions involved when visiting the Obgyn, but Dr. Shelnutt goes out of his way to make you comfortable and really listen to your concerns. Also, I think he could teach my previous providers a thing or two, because his annual exams are easily the least painful I've ever experienced!
I'll always recommend Dr. Shelnutt to absolutely anyone.
