He was incredible. I came in for a second opinion on my hip and he was so thorough and so kindand listened to my thoughts and concerns and took ample time to explain everything and answer my questions. He sympathized with me and recommended a great treatment plan and a different doctor to follow up with to treat my back.

Process was efficient once you get into the back but the processing took a while. Glad I printed and filled outall the forms ahead of time.

Everyone was so extremely nice from the assistant to the xray tech to Dr. Anthony. I've been to an orthopedist before who was quick to dismiss my pain. Without ever taking xrays, I was told I had arthritis at 27. Dr.Anthony walked me through my xrays and explained everything. All I need is some physical therapy. The only negative I have is the check in process and with zocdoc. Even though I received a confirmation, the office didn't have me on their schedule. Thankfully I called the day before to confirm. I also pre filled out forms on zocdoc and the office didn't receive them. So this particular office doesn't really work with zocdoc. Even though I arrived 5 minutes before my appointment, I wasn't given forms to fill out until 20 minutes after my appointment. The forms took me about 10 minutes (so many) but then only waited another 5 minutes until someone brought me in. So 35 minutes after my appointment time. They should've given me forms as soon as I checked in. This was at 8am. I can't imagine how backed up they must get later in the day.

Is always a pleasure to see Dr. Shawn I’ve seeing him a couple of times and he takes time to listen to my concerns. I feel confident visiting his office that I will get the right diagnosis, I’ve been to privatepractices with other orthopedists and they had not been as professional neither accurate in the diagnosis as Dr. Shawn.The waiting time is minimal and the staff is amazing.

He was GREAT! Fast smooth appt but the front desk is bad. I've been seeing Dr Cohen as my primary care in the same office for over a year and you are on hold for at least 10 whole min. LuckilyI have a headset. Every time you call there is a wait just as long. It's so bad. At least 6 ladies in the back behind the desk. How does this happen?

Wait times are a very difficult thing for practices: I arrived 15 minutes early and was seen 55 minutes after my appt time, yet I'm notsure what could be done regarding this.

Dr. Anthony was very thoughtful as soon as he entered the room. He asked about me and what I was in for. He proceeded with the side of caution and ordered an MRI to understand my pain more, when he initiallythought we could start with physical therapy. After the results from my MRI, he asked for a follow up. When I returned, he walked through the results of my MRI so that I could understand what he saw. He showed pictures on google and used a 3-D model to help me further understand what was wrong. He followed these same strategies when explaining to me how the procedure he recommended would work.

Amazing doctor. Kind, communicative, well-informed. Possibly the best doc I've ever been to. He explained things in a way that was accessible to me, and when I did not understand a concept, he took the time to explain further. My reasonfor seeing Dr. Shaw was for a second opinion on possible surgery. The procedure in question is not his specialty, and I will be going with the original doctor (who is also quite capable). However, were this not the case, I would have instantly switched to Dr. Shaw, based on his communication skills and willingness to spend the extra time to guide me through my medical issue.
