Charlotte, NC |
He took the time to explain everything in a manner that was easy to understand. You can tell that he really cares for the pain and suffering his patients have been living with.

He is great, takes time to listen to my concerns and make sure my questions are answered. I have had surgery to my foot and he's been great with my overall care
Gastonia, NC |
From day one he made sure I understood what was going on and my options. He took his time to make sure my questions were answered and walked me through the process. Lacrosse is my passion and a way for me to be with my friends post collegiate. He put me at ease with the decisions I was making for my treatment.
in Knoxville, TN |
Dr Shawen recently performed fusion surgery on my right foot . While I am still in th healing process, I cannot say enough good things about the care and excellent bedside manner that Dr Shawen has provided. While I had one doctor in Knoxville Tennessee tell me my foot could never be fixed and removing it was the best option (not joking) Dr shawen never blinked an eye and had no issues telling me that by following his instructions my foot could be repaired. he has done what he said.
