Dr. Shaver has been our family's specialist for many years. His bedside and office demeanor are beyond any I have ever experienced. His knowledge is incredible and he isn't afraid to seek outside advisement if he feels that is necessary. As a patient, you are made to feel that you are part of the family. His advice, I feel is the same as what he would offer to his family members. I trust him implicitly.

Dr. Shaver is the most attentive Doctor I've ever been to and took the time to make sure I understood everything and answered all of my questions. He even personally called to check on me and give me my biopsy results after a procedure. He also went above and beyond to get me in to a good specialist for my condition. Everyone in the office was very friendly and it was clean and updated.
in Moody, AL |
He listens and is thorough because he cares, which is more than I can say for some others I've been to in the past. Dr. Shaver has taken great care of me and continues to monitor my health, which I greatly appreciate! About to schedule a follow up now, as a matter of fact.
