I saw Dr. Shaw briefly before for colon cancer before switching to another doctor. He was wrong on a couple of issues and I just didn't trust him anymore. My new oncologist was real surprised by his treatment. Shaw is a nice guy, but I just can't risk this serious illness on someone who doesn't keep up.

Dr. Shaw may have a lot of medical knowledge but his failure to follow-up on what he says he will do results is delay after delay of needed services. He is disorganized, does not pay attention to details, and does not prepare for patient appointments in advance. He orders tests but does not review the results of the tests until the patient asks about them. Nice man, but not a very good doctor.
