Dr. Shaye performed a surgery on our 3 year old daughter, and was so kind, attentive to our worry, and thoughtful. Our daughter is doing great. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend Dr. Shaye to any family member or friend.

I am forever grateful to Dr. Shaye for taking incredible care of my daughter! He has such an excellent bedside manner. His wonderful office staff at MEEI was great at communication and helped me quickly schedule surgery for her. She healed so beautifully -- I can barely even see a scar. I always recommend Dr. Shaye to my friends and family members. He is the best of the best, and we are lucky to be in his amazing care.

I would absolutely recommend Dr.Shaye to my family and friends. He has a great bedside manner in taking the time to explain procedures and answer questions.He called me at home the evening of my initial afternoon meeting to go over questions to insure I was comfortable with my upcoming procedure.His staff is very helpful. I was nervous about my procedure but I was completly at ease after Dr. Shaye explained how he would do it and answered my questions.

My visit with Dr. Shaye was excellent and I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. He was clear with his explanations about my health issues and took the time to listen. He cared about my concerns and answered all of my questions so I could understand them. The office and support staff were all very nice and helpful and I’d rate this as a top notch medical practice.

Dr. Shaye has an incredible skill in his field. His bedside manner was impeccable as well, and he as well as his team made me feel immensely prepared for the surgery and has an extreme care for his patients, shown through his extensive work with patients to achieve their desired change as well as his amazing bedside manner. He and his team are so incredibly knowledgeable, kind and polite. I am someone who worries excessively about surgery, but if I had to have the procedure again, I would not change a single thing. So thankful to have heard about Dr. Shaye and look forward to our follow up visits. He is just an all around spectacular doctor.

Hands down my best experience ever in a medical setting. Both in terms of service and in terms of medical care. Dr. Shaye clearly explained the procedure in detail, what to expect afterwards, and potential complications. His manner was excellent and I'm very happy with the outcome.

I went to Dr. Shaye with a complicated case- 2 prior surgeries with a different skilled surgeon, which both failed. Dr. Shaye not only corrected the structural/breathing issues, he was also able to give me a beautiful nose that suits my face perfectly. It’s evident when you meet with him that he is passionate about his work and takes pride in delivering his best. If you do your research, you will also find he donates his time and expertise to help those in need in Africa. Excellent character, exceptional surgeon, and a true artist.

Dr. Shaye's Reply –
Thank you so much for your positive comments!
After being a mouth breather for as long as I can remember, I finally decided to get my deviated septum fixed. From the consult visit on through the surgery and post operative appointment my experience was unbelievable. The office was incredibly flexible with scheduling my appointments. Dr. Shaye was wonderful at explaining everything and answering any questions I had. He is a gentle, intelligent, professional and skilled surgeon. I feel lucky to have been referred to him.

ME – Nov 02, 2018
Dr. Shaye is absolutely amazing! I was referred to him by a family friend for some work on my deviated septum and appearance of my nose and I could not be happier! He is very comforting and walks you through every step of the process. As this was my first surgery, I was very nervous going in but Dr. Shaye and his staff all made sure I was comfortable and in the loop as to what was going on. Absolutely would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Shaye works wonders. He dealt with a large excision from a melanoma and did a beautiful repair. What’s more, he is kind, patient, and takes the time to explain things. He was very welcoming to my husband and two children as they accompanied me to visits. He even had us laughing. A million thanks, Dr. Shaye, for your exquisite work. M.C. McEwing

Tammy in MA – Apr 24, 2018
I had a severely deviated septum for many years. Dr. Shaye and his team were very informative pre-op on what needed to be done to fix my septum along with expectations of post-up/recovery. After having the procedure they were dead on! The professionalism, care, accuracy, ease, and most importantly, the results of the whole process would lead me to recommend Dr. Shaye to anyone in need of the services he provides! The airflow improvements in my nose are a game changer!

Stephen G in Sudbury, MA – Nov 29, 2017
Dr. Shaye and his staff are the best! He always thoroughly explained options and procedures and took as much time as necessary to answer questions. His skill as a surgeon is obvious when I look in a mirror - reconstructive surgery after melanoma removal on my face left barely a scar. Appointments were easy to schedule with Kayla. She's quite an asset to the team! While I hope to not have to see Dr. Shaye again myself, I certainly wouldn't hesitate if necessary.

Louise Dahill in Massachusetts – Oct 26, 2017
Sending my teenage daughter with a very deviated septum into surgery two weeks ago was extremely scary. She had been begging for the surgery to fix her septum and straighten her nose, but all I could think about was the worst case scenario of what could go wrong. Let me tell you that the entire process couldn't have gone any better and more importantly, my daughter couldn't be happier with her nose! Dr. Shaye is the most amazing, caring and skilled nose surgeon. Very highly recommend him!

Julie in Central Massachusetts – Aug 27, 2017
Dr. Shaye is simply amazing! I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about getting a cosmetic rhinoplasty done. Not only did he address my aesthetic concerns but he made sure to address improving any areas of my nose that could improve my quality of breathing. I didn't even know I had a collapsed valve until he took a look at my nose. That is what sets him apart from seeking out a private cosmetic surgeon. He has great bedside manner and was very pleasant to work with. Love my new nose!
