About Me

I have been asked many times if I always knew I wanted to be a surgeon, and I always say "Ever since my third grade teacher suggested I could be one." Since then, I have tried to be the best surgeon I could be. The most important thing a surgeon can ...

Thank you forever!!

I could never express my thanks enough to Dr. Shaver. I had to have a Whipple procedure for my pancreatic cancer. Dr. Shaver was kind and caring and gave me a good layman’s explantion of the procedure and what to expect in the future.

Dr. Shaver did a fantastic job of explaining what the Florida ER CT scan showed and what tests and why they needed to be done to reach an accurate diagnoses and then worked with the other practices (radiology, gastroenterologist) to get the test results . He made a stressful situation a lot easier. Great staff—Candice and Grace are professional and super to work with. I recommend Dr. Shaver and the VSA practice.

Dr. Shaver did a good job of removing the cyst in my liver. Prior to that, I was in some extreme pain. He took the time to explain the procedure to me. He put me at ease in what I consider to be a very stressful and trying time in my life.

I cannot say enough kind words about Dr. Shaver. Professional, COMPETENT, and caring....everything one would want in a medical provider. I saw Dr. Shaver to have a tumor removed from under my rib cage. He instantly made me feel at ease with the procedure and I trusted his experience. I no doubt would recommend him to family and friends.

500 Characters Doesn't Give A Good Platform To Begin Explaining Why I Love This Man !! As A Husband of 29 Years, It's Very Hard to turn You Wife's Overall care over to another Individual. I was faced with this in November 2018 when my Wife was amazingly diagnosed with a choledochal cysts at age 52. Upon meeting Dr. Shaver, Dr. Younan and Assistant Stephanie I felt Very At Ease with their Professionalism and Sincere Care of My Lifetime Love. Long Story Short,,,Surgery and Recovery Excellent !

I consider Dr. Shaver an excellent surgeon. My previous surgeon recommended Dr. Shaver to do my surgery. I felt at ease with Dr. Shaver and he went through my procedure thoroughly with me. I truly feel God put Dr. Shaver as my physician and I thank Him for giving Dr. Shaver his talent in making my surgery a success. (Ephesians 2:10) is God's working in Dr. Shaver to help others. Thank you Dr. Shaver Sincerely Joan Kelly
