Patient Comments (2)

I seen Dr. Shaw for my last yearly exam. I will continue my eye care at his practice. He was very nice and patient with me especially while doing my refraction.

Dr. Shaw was great! I got some of the care that I need and am very pleased so far; however, the staff is rude, obnoxious, and lacks empathy. I am stuck because of insurance, but if it were up to me, I would not return.
