This is where I get my greatest satisfaction and why I do what I do. It's the difference you make in curing a patient you are face to face with in the office or the operating room. That's what makes me look forward to going to work every day, and how I have grown a successful ENT practice in the Atlanta area over the past 15 years."

Dr. Shaw is an amazing doctor. After I broke my nose she walked me through what had happened structurally, how she would fix it, and completely put my mind at ease. She is warm, compassionate, knowledable - everything we look for in a doctor. She also expedited the entire process so I could put it behind me and still make the family camping trip! The staff is super too-very nice, prompt, capable. I am so incredibly grateful to Dr Shaw and her staff.

Dr Shaw had seen and performed very successful surgery on my mother, treated my husband ( a retired ENT) and myself. We all think she is wonderful. She is extremely kind and caring. My husband feels that she was very well trained and it shows. Her office is efficient and professional. I feel extremely happy that our family found her!

Dr. Shaw's office is the worst doctor's office I have ever dealt with. I had a sleep study conducted for sleep apnea. I was left with no follow ups, they lost my paper work from the sleep lab, and I had to personally coordinate between their office and the sleep lab. I have never seen a more dysfunctional, unorganized, and inconsiderate doctors office in my life. They lost all of my results and I was left having to follow up on the ENTIRE process myself. Severe lack of professionalism.

Dr. Shaw is amazing. She was informative and extremely professional while exhibiting a friendly and upbeat persona. I felt so comfortable with her. Her confidence and experience as a surgeon was important to me. I am so glad I went to her.
