I have been a patient of Dr. Shaw's for several years and for both of my pregnancies (second one high risk/multiples). I have had such a great experience with him and his practice. Dr. Shaw has always taken the time toaddress my laundry list of questions and concerns at each visit. This was especially true when my husband and I went back and forth in deciding whether or not to do genetic testing during our twin pregnancy when there were signs that something could be wrong. Dr. Shaw was extremely knowledgeable and thoroughly explained the benefits and risks of the testing. He supported us throughout the process and I could not be more happier with him. He is well liked and well respected at Lenox Hill Hospital. I would recommend Dr. Shaw to anyone as he is a fantastic doctor.

Seemed a bit awkward and uncomfortable. Avoided responding to some of my comments. Prescribed a medication even though I told him I wasn't having difficulty with that bodily function. Did not thank me for coming in.

Dr. Shaw was very professional and extremely sensitive to my situation. I appreciated the fact that he really listened to me and did not talk at me. I did not feel rushed at all. He made me feel like I wasan important patient and he treated me as such. I would certainly recommend Dr. Shaw.
