My three daughters have been with Dr. Shaw for approximately 8 years. Dr. Shaw has always answered any questions they have had with great respect and bountiful knowledge. Whether they’ve asked at 3 or 13, they’ve never felt as though a question was ‘stupid’. The office visits are never rushed and the entire staff is friendly. Phone calls are returned promptly and privacy is always respected. The office is always clean and run with efficiency. Thankfully, a sick visit is always accommodated. Both the doctors and the office staff work so well together with patients, that it seems as though you are visiting family when you step into their office. A genuinely nice feeling…We haven’t felt that way anywhere else!
