Dr. Shaw's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Shaw "Dr. Shaw graduated from the University of Florida in Gainesville with a bachelor's degree in Microbiology.

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.
