Cumming, GA |
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.

Caring. Very clear when talking to you. Great results from my wife , son and now me. Appointments have always been on time. Access and Parking are easy at new Mt Vernon location. Highly recommended by 3 friends in the industry. Now by me too. PS. Great admin staff too.

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.

Dr. Shaw says...

Dr. Shaw graduated from the University of Florida in Gainesville with a bachelor's degree in Microbiology.  She pursued her medical degree at the University of Florida and completed an internship in general surgery in 1996.  She completed her specialized training in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Florida's Shands Hospital and VA Hospital in 2000.

Individual attention to each patient is a hallmark of Dr. Shaw's practice.   "I have to measure my professional accomplishments by the impact I make on each patient one day at a time.  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."

She is a fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, a fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy, a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society and the Atlanta Medical Association.  She is a Board of Governors representative for the Georgia Society of Otolaryngology.  Dr. Shaw is a past president, member and previous officer for 4 years of the Atlanta Metro Educational Society of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.  She is currently the Chief of the Otolaryngology section at Emory St. Joseph's Hospital and has served in this capacity for the past 4 years.  She serves on the hospital Ethics Review and Peer Review committees.  She has lectured for the Northside Hospital Speaker's Bureau and the Children's Hospital of Atlanta.  Dr. Shaw is a supporter of St. Joseph's Mercy Care Clinic and the Mercy Care Foundation.

Dr. Shaw hails from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and has been married to Dr. Kurt Briesacher, a cardiac anesthesiologist at Emory St. Joseph's hospital for over 20 years.  They share a love of the outdoors with their 3 children and their yellow Labrador retriever and are hiking, biking, running or paddling as often as possible in their free time.
