When I had an appointment with Dr. Shaw for a consultation prior to a colonoscopy I was advised by his office staff that they were going to refuse to honor their contract with Aetna Insurance and I could not receive service from Dr. Shaw. I filed a complaint with Medicare and Aetna and the investigator was told by the office staff that the reason I was refused service was because the doctor was not in the office that day which was a total fabrication. I had to schedule with another doctor.
