Fantastic! Quick and easy procedure!
Very comfortable and easy.
Everyone there was very nice.
Fantastic and very professional Foctpr
Over all the visit went well. Like most doctor's offices, my appointment did not start right on time, I waited about 30 minutes, but the office staff was efficient and personable when I did head back to the room.
Dr Shaw is a pro. Down to earth, extremely gifted.
Prompt, courteous, and professional. Informative and took their time.
Dr. Shaw was polite, knowledgable, and made the whole process fairly painless. Highly recommend.
Appointment overall went well, but they were running very late. My appointment was for 10:15, and didn't see anyone until 11:15, then had to wait again for someone else. Didn't leave until about 12.
Dr Shaw & his staff were amazing. Hopefully I will never need a urologist again, but if I do, he's my guy. Period. I highly recommend him & his staff. He's really funny too. Humor helps when you are nervous. A+++++++
I highly recommend Dr. Shaw. He is easy to talk to and an excellent listener. He explained all of the options available and answered all my questions.
Very Clean! Super Fast and Efficient! I was seen right away, everyone was very nice and courteous! Dr. Shaw was very professional, and personable, with a great bed side manner. I was highly satisfied!
It went very well. No problems. In and out very quickly.
Very prompt and professional staff. Procedure was quick and painless. The best decision I could have made.
Everything has been amazingly smooth and simple on multiple visits I've had there. Would recommend them to anyone who asks.
This is my second visit with Dr. Shaw. Both times, he was very clear and professional when discussing my issues and answered all my questions.
Doctor was great but waited way too long on the prep table before procedure. Also, went to pick up my pain meds and they were not called into the pharmacy.
Very nice staff. Doctor Shaw is funny and makes you feel at ease
My overall impression was one of a friendly professional environment. From the front desk staff to the nurses to the physicians they are top notch and all are a pleasure to deal with. Seldom do you see an office that well run with such upbeat competent staff. I would highly recommend the practice to everyone.
Professional and Great People all Around.
Very professional, but yet kept the mood light and airy. This was very much appreciated, as I was just about to lose my ability to procreate FOREVER.
Due to the nature of this procedure, I was a hesitant and nervous but Dr. Shaw's team helped clarify a lot of the misconceptions and misunderstandings I had. Dr. Shaw himself is an outstanding professional. Informative, sincere, thouroughl and also a "member", having personal experience with the procedure, helped solidify my decision to continue and move forward. Professionalism at its best backed by a knowledgeable team.
The office was a pleasant, comfortable environment. All of the staff were friendly and professional. My procedure was quick and involved little pain. It's the day after my surgery now, and I have not needed the prescription pain medication.
Dr Shaw did not see me.
Set up my vasectomy for a Friday and had no issues at all after the procedure. I'm a huge wimp but didn't have any pain or issues during or after the procedure. Trust in the process, follow the directions pre and post procedure and you'll do fine. Takes 15 min or less from start to finish, including prep time, etc. Highly recommended.
They were awesome. I showed up an hour early due to my error and they stil got me in right away.
Welcomed,.he was very knowledgeable and the exam was detailed. I highly recommend Dr.Shaw.
I thought he was great. Well trained, fast, efficient. The only negative I have to say was that I wasn't aware of the discomfort the procedure caused. I went in thinking there was a shot given to numb the area, don't believe that happened, but I didn't see what was going on. Still very pleased with the professionalism and work done...thus far.
Only our first visit, but he was very pleasant, took his time and we felt he was thorough in his question and how to proceed.
Everyone is very friendly and very professional. From the nursing staff and the PA, to Dr. Shaw himself. They test for many factors before deciding on anything, just to make sure you are given the right treatment plan.
Everyone here is very professional. Office is comfortable and clean.
Went so quick and smooth for a vasectomy, way better than I anticipated. I scheduled everything online with ease. The staff were quick with answers online, over the phone and in person, very friendly atmosphere. Was able to pick up the prescriptions ahead of the appointment which makes it that much easier. Dr. Shaw was professional, quick and it was pain free. Total experience I'd give two thumbs up. Very minimal pain afterwards, just taking it easy, only have the usual discomfort for the most part.
Great, no issues
Communication from the office was excellent and thoroughly prepared me for what to expect from my visit.
Dr. Shaw and his staff were very professional yet personnable. They took their time to answer any questions that I had and made the process as easy as possible for me. I would highly recommend them. Thank you to the whole staff.
Professional staff. Clean comfortable office. I'd recommend Dr. Shaw highly.
Everything went very smoothly and was just what I expected from the information provided in advance. It was a very easy process and great overall experience. I highly recommend Dr. Shaw.
Dr Shaw and staff were very professional and made me feel very comfortable. Minimal wait. Every thing went according to schedule. Absolutely, recommend Dr. Shaw.
Dr. Shaw was very personable and friendly and gave practical advice on how to deal with the problem that he diagnosed. I enjoyed meeting him and his staff and they all were very professional and efficient.
I was incredibly satisfied. I was made comfortable and the procedure was clearly explained, all my questions were answered. The staff was welcoming and Dr. Shaw was friendly & professional.
Dr. Shaw and his entire staff were friendly and helpful. I didn't wait to get in or seen and was able to get a diagnose and course of treatment without any difficulty or complexity.
Staff was friendly, office looks like a spa, nice. Dr was very busy that morning only got to spend a few minutes with him, he was apologetic for delays and seemed sincere.His assistant was knowledgeable and offered a possible solution for my issue. Time will tell.
On my first visit I was seen by a Physicians Assistant which I would have preferred to be told in advance. On my second follow up appointment I actually saw the doctor. These are the most beautiful offices I have ever seen!
Great experience all-around! Quick and painless considering the procedure. Highly recommend.
Excellent care for the patient and very easy and simple. I was very impressed!
Very professional and quick procedure. Friendly and understanding of my desire to not talk much and get the procedure completed with only a minute of quick chit chat and ensuring I had no questions prior to starting the procedure which was completed in less than 15 minutes total.
The staff and Dr. Shaw were professional, and proformed an excellent job on my surgery procedure. I highly recommend his practice.
Writing this the day after my vasectomy. Dr. Shaw was friendly and professional. Once it began, the procedure was done in 15min or less. It was painless and there were no uncomfortable tugging sensations. 24hrs later and still no discomfort and no swelling. The difficult part is going to be staying away from exercise for a week, because it doesn't even feel like any procedure was done!
Wonderfully professional. Great attitude and good explanation of the procedure prior to executing it. Vasectomy was far easier than the lead up was mentally!
Great experience. Staff was organized, friendly, on time and Dr Shaw was thorough and thoughtful. Highly recommend.
It couldn't have gone any smoother. I had my wife drive me. I took the prescribed medication 30 minutes prior to the appt as instructed. As soon as I sat down in the lobby I was sleeping lol, but when my name was called about 10-15 minutes later my wife and I were up and walking to the room. Everyone was very considerate and friendly. The procedure went by in a flash with minor discomfort and funny conversation. I was out of there almost as quickly as I had arrived and on my way home to sit and chill. Thanks Dr. Shaw for making it a good experience.
Dr. Shaw was great! His office staff was friendly, everything went quickly and was virtually pain free. This is the Doctor you should use. :)
Very professional and made me feel right at home.
Everything went as I had hoped. Short wait. Smart, professional Doctors. I'm satisfied.
Very down to earth and great sense of huh humor. Have already recommended him!
Dr Shaw is a true professional and all his team members I interacted with (3 or 4 total) were very well trained, courteous, and professional. Dr Shaw runs a top-shelf operation in a clean, modern, well lit office space. As a fellow doctor, I know the large amount of work it takes to create and sustain the seamless patient experience Dr Shaw's office provides. I highly recommend his services.
Doctor and staff very nice and professional. Highly recommend if you are in need of a urologist.
Went in for a vasectomy. I was able to do a lot of my paperwork online. Everything went as smooth as butter.
All of the staff were very nice. Dr. Shaw did a great job of making me feel comfortable with my vasectomy procedure. I will be recommending him to any man who is looking to have this procedure fone.
Dr. Shaw was very professional and made an inherently unnerving experience more tolerable. I highly recommend Dr. Shaw for all your urology needs!!
I was very pleased all my questions were answered!
Dr. Shaw is wonderful. Compassionate and lucid in describing medical situations. Highly recommended!
Great doc. Pleasant bedside manners. Explained well. Very efficient. Great atmosphere.
Excellent? Caring doctor and staff Very glad i went
I arrived slightly early, and they were able to get me in a little early. Dr. Shaw came in and explained everything beforehand. He is a genuinely nice guy. The procedure went smoothly, and Dr. Shaw was great about talking through it as he worked. I was understandably nervous, but the whole staff was good at putting me at ease. I'd surely recommend them to anyone!
I am a woman and met with the PA on staff who is also female. Would recommend this practice any woman suffering from UTIs.
The whole staff was awesome!
Best urologist and staff that I have seen in the 3 states I have lived in. State of the art office and a very efficient staff.
very well run office. The Dr Shaw was professional and through. He answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable.
He was great!
Very informative and helpful.
It was just as they said everything would be in the phone conversation & all the paperwork provided.
Awesome! Made me feel at ease. Great doc and great staff.
I was very impressed with everyone I encountered. The office is nice, the staff is nice, the whole experience was great.
Dr. Shaw is great and really puts you at ease. I'm glad I chose him. If you are reading this your search should end here.
Fantastic experience for a not so enjoyable procedure. Thanks for making it easy and effortless. Just make it clearer in the vasectomy info packet or email you send out that the patient must pick up the Xanax tablet at the pharmacy BEFORE the procedure!
I appreciated Dr. Shaw's laid-back demeanor and his attentiveness to my concern's. He put my mind at ease with his diagnosis and explanations. I would return if the need arose.
He explained the issue very nicely in a manner that was easy to understand. Staff was friendly
He thoroughly explained my condition and my treatment options. Will definitely see again.
Beautiful office, friendly staff, and a quick procedure without issues.
Been here three times. Saw Shaw once and his PA twice. They were pretty great.
Both the PA and Dr. Shaw have excellent communication skills, and project a high degree of professionalism. As doctors visits go, this was as good as it gets.
He was helpful when he arrived after I had been seen by a nurse and his PA.
He was awesome! Made the procedure go by so fast. If you are considering a vasectomy in Austin he is your guy!!
I would highly recommend Dr. Shaw. The process of scheduling my apportionment was easy and simple. His staff was helpful and professional!
Very quick and professional. They made me very comfortable, and I was only waiting for a few minutes.
Very knowledgeable and pleasant bedside manner!
I was very impressed. One thing that could have been better is the procedure that was done was painful. I wasn't expecting it and didn't know what it was. I think a catheter was used to get a sample of urine and maybe look at bladder??? Anyway it was painful and it would've been nice to understand what was about to happen. All other explanations of diagnosis were spot on
Very approachable, and thorough.
Dr. Shaw has a great manner and high degree of professionalism. Was easy to talk to and answered all my questions.
There were a lot of contradictions in this visit. I received and email with information referring to an email which I didn't get. When I called and asked for it to be resent it never happened. The patient history information was completed online, yet the office didn't have record of the information, resulting in 20 minutes worth of writing. When I went back they said the doctor was running behind by 30 minutes yet it was closer to an hour. A lot of time spent waiting exposed and prepped for the procedure.
relaxed and professional
For a first visit compared to the other options in this city his staff rates off the chart. Knowledge, options, interaction!
Glad I picked him.
I am happy with my visit.
He refereed me to his colleague as the issue I was having related to his specialty. Dr. Shaw was personable and he explained the process.
Dr. Shaw was extremely nice and put me at ease with conversation during the entire procedure. I was in and out with in an hour. I would highly recommend Dr. Shaw.
Excellent. In and out with no fuss. The procedure went smooth - very little if any pain at all. The real pain came 4-5 days later with general discomfort - but that is normal for most everyone as I've been reading. Shaw was top notch. Highly recommended.
I will definitely recommend Dr. Shaw to anyone that needs a vasectomy or any other urology-related services. I was in and out in 1 hour and 10 minutes, and that included the consolation and procedure. The staff was friendly, polite, and I did not wait more than 2-3 minutes in the waiting room. The PA answered all of the questions I had. And Dr. Shaw was great in explaining what was going to happen, he was quick without giving you a rushed feeling, and the pain was nonexistent and the discomfort level minimal. I drove myself home and stopped for food on the way. Overall, this was a great experience and I don't see how it could be any better with another doctor.
Total surgery time was less than 9 minutes. Throrough but efficient. I highly recommend.
Very impressed. He and his staff did an excellent job.
Everyone at the office was very nice and professional. They were able to move up my scheduled appointment by a day since it was semi-urgent. Dr. Shaw is very personable and easy to talk to, especially about sensitive men's health issues. He keeps it light-hearted but professional. They were great handling insurance coverage and double-checking procedure costs against our benefits without us having to prompt them.
He made us feel comfortable and we left feeling like we were on a real game plan for success!
If want/need of a vasectomy, he's your Dude! Quick, mostly pain free and professional! Highly recommended!!!
It was an excellent visit.
In terms of a doctors appointment, it went as well as one could hope. The front desk was very polite and informative and Dr. Shaw was very personable and easy to speak with.
When great, excellent.
Received all the information ahead of the appointment. Dr Shaw made sure all my questions were answered and made me feel comfortable with the procedure. The procedure itself was quick and nearly painless, and I was able to get my prescription filled before the procedure so I don't expect to experience any major discomfort during the recovery process. No unpleasant surprises, and I'll be recommending Dr Shaw to my friends who are getting ready for their own procedures.
Dr. Shaw was great. The whole thing took about 10 minutes. No pain afterwards. Funny story; During the procedure, I was covering my eyes from the bright lights above, pretending that i was not there. I hear " what's that?", form the nurse. "I don't know, looks like a burn? It just appeared there weird huh?." says Dr. Shaw.; He reminds me of Aziz Ansari by the way : ) I poke my head up and say; Are you talking about me? We all look at each other and start laughing. Dr Shaw says while laughing " No," and he held out his arm saying, "We were looking at this spot that appeared on my arm last night," It was very funny.
Very professional. Process was very streamlined and discomfort was minimal. Information was very clear and timely. Overall a very good experience.
Highly recommend Dr. Shaw. His entire staff was friendly and professional. He put me right at ease and made the procedure as easy as possible for me. Thanks again to Dr. Shaw!!
Shaw is legit and the real deal. I hate jerk doctors but Shaw was very fast, professional and my vasectomy procedure was painless. The staff is very knows what they're talking about and were very accommodating. Wait room time was less then 5 min. My wife is a nurse and works in the OR with him sometimes and she said the guys work is top notch. Def recommend.
Highly knowledgeable and experienced staff. Spectacular office and medical facility. Best of the best.
Excellent Doctor with good interpersonal skills with patients.
Went well. Hopeful of a fast and easy recovery.
The wait time was fast, the staff was amazing, the PA was very helpful to my needs, and Dr. Shaw was totally cool!
The Doctor and staff were very professional and polite. I will be going back on a semi-annual basis.
Easy awesome knowledgable
Dr. Shaw quite congenial yet businesslike and seems to know his trade well.
The doctor was very friendly and the staff was courteous and prompt. For those interested I was in and out within 45 minutes.
Fantastic appointment. In and out quick.
From the moment we walked through the door, we were made to feel welcome. The front office staff was exceedingly nice. I went to get a cup of coffee & she asked if it was still hot ( it wasn't). She then said she would get a cup from the back office for me! How nice was that? Great all around.
Outstanding! Very professional, and puts patient at ease.
Very professional. Good bedside manner.
great quick and easy
Excellent facility and staff. Very friendly and efficient.
Very professional and provided answers
Smart with a great attitude. Best doc ever.
Dr Shaw was made me feel very relaxed when I had my surgery. He was quick and informative, and my expectations were set perfectly. I have zero complaints.
Dr. Koushik is awesome. He has a great personality and makes you feel at ease. He's the kind of guy you would want to hang out with. His assisting nurse was very professional (forgot name). Christal, at the front desk was very kind & helpful. ZocDoc double booked me but she managed to squeeze me in. Erica is very attentive & thoughtful. Great experience (considering I got a vasectomy!)
Outstanding. Thank you.
This was my first visit with Dr. Shaw and staff. Great experience. Very professional. the PA was terrific as well as all support staff. Dr. Shaw was polite and compassionate. Will definitely recommend this Doctor and staff.
Understands what you are going through and works with you for the best solution to meet your medical needs. Love him and his staff.
It was fast and very informative.
Fine visit but was unexpectedly consulted by his PA, whom I had never even met before.
Excellent Doctor. I hope I don't have to visit again anytime soon, but if I do I'll be back.
Overall Koushik was very approachable and easy-talking. He provided simple facts and did not sugar-coat anything. I did wait over 30 minutes for him to enter. When he arrived he did apologize and say the prior surgery ran long which I understand. It would have been nice for his staff to have come let me know.
Respects the patient and patients issues. Very informative about the medical dx being treated,treatment options and effects of treatment. Wants what is best for the patient. Highly recommend him.
Already referred him and I just had the procedure today.
My experience was most excellent.
Dr. Shaw has a great demeanor and way of explaining medical conditions in an informative, yet calming matter. The nurses are great--smart and friendly. I highly reccomend Dr.Shaw and his staff.
Very good visit and very professional and personable... answered all my questions. And did a great job.
Very detailed and willing to discuss things as requested was not arrogant like have seen other specialists at time.
I had some questions about the procedure beforehand, and I was a little uncomfortable with the idea that the consultation and the procedure would happen in the same session... The staff treated the procedure like a foregone conclusion, and it made me feel a little like my questions and concerns weren't important. However, the treatment was super fast and gentle, and the attitude of the staff is probably calculated to minimize patient anxiety during a sensitive time.
Made a difficult conversation very easy. Great guy!
Quick and painless! I don't know what I was so worried about! Dr. Shaw is awesome!
Very professional and knowledgeable.
Very friendly, helpful, on-time service! I was in and out of the office in 25 minutes.
