Meet The Doctors

The passion Kenyatta Shamlin-Haynes, MD and Tasha Shamlin, MD possess for care and service stems from the strong foundation built throughout their childhood by their parents Dr. Gwynn and Rev. Brunetta Shamlin. Both sisters are proud graduates of Baton Rouge Magnet High School and later went on to graduate from LSU in Baton Rouge.

Following their undergraduate program, they both completed medical school and a dual Internal Medicine and Pediatric residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. Their drive for care and love for the Baton Rouge community led them back to their hometown to practice after completing their residency program.
