Dr. Dawson is hands down the absolute best surgeon for Laparoscopic surgery in NYC. I had my gall bladder removed by him on 8/2/16.
Dr. Dawson is an excellent surgeon. In addition, he has an excellent bedside manner
Dr. Dawson is both a great surgeon and a great caregiver.

A wonderful doctor with an incredible bedside manner. I highly recommend him
I had a very complicated case and Dr. Dawson was amazing from beginning to end. He is a very talented and patient surgeon who is not afraid to take on difficult cases. My quality of life has improved thanks to Dr. Dawson.
Knowledgeable , warm, sets u at ease regarding upcoming surgery!!!
Great experience with Dr Dawson. Accurate diagnosis and easy and professional operation. Would have liked a call from him personally that day to see how I was doing instead of his office calling me the next day but this would not stop me from highly recommending him or using him again.
I had my gallbladder removed by Dr. Dawson and I couldn't thank him enough? From the initial appointment until the day of surgery Dr. Dawson made me feel comfortable especially the day of surgery. I highly recommend him.
Doctor Dawson is one of the finest doctors I have ever encountered - and, I am very selective. He is extremely intelligent, a very knowledgeable doctor, perfect bedside manner, friendly, kind, dedicated, a good man, spends a lot of time with his patients, always listens to what his patients have to say, etc., etc., etc. I truly cannot say enough great things about him - and, there are absolutely no negatives. I have recommended him to innumerable people; further, I have heard "rave reviews" about him from both medical and non-medical people. A rare find.
Very intelligent, talkative, explained everything, put you at ease, follow up was great, and the laparoscopic appendicitis was flawless.
VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE, ATTENTIVE AND PROFESSIONAL. WONDERFUL FOLLOW UP.
Allowing for Dr. Dawson's surgical competency as a given, I found Dr. Dawson's warmth, patience, and caring to be exceptional. Information was conveyed clearly and concisely in non-technical terms. In each of our encounters, I felt I had Dr. Dawson's complete attention and that he was genuinely concerned with making my treatment and care as positive an experience as possible.
respectful informative, professional and caring
Dr Dawson repaired my umbilical hernia with great skill and a warm human touch. He treated me as if I were a friend and I will never forget it. The surgery went off without a hitch and I experienced no problems with recovery.
Dr. Dawson was excellent in every way. He diagnosed me properly, was professional, kind, and HUMAN! He also honored my every question (there were many) and re-explained the procedure to me various times. I recommend him wholeheartedly. I wish he didn't have such a specialty because I would love him to be my PCP!
Dr. Dawson is an excellent Surgeon who highly knowledgeable with a excellent bedside manner. I felt like he really cared about me, his patient. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Dawson was extremely patient and helpful. He was able to diagnose me within minutes. I also had a great surgical experience. Little to no pain post surgery and no scarring at all. Overall very friendly and positive experience. Office staff was kind as well.
I hope I never have to have surgery again, but if I do, I'd go back to Dr. Dawson in a minute! Very kind, great bedside manner, yet instills confidence. I actually have a rare condition that he was able to diagnose, but to ensure that I was getting the best care, he suggested further follow up with specialists.
He is a conscientious doctor that follows up after surgery. He visits you every day to see how you are doing. I have had surgeries at other hospitals and he and a doctor of another hospital are the only doctors that come to see how you are doing on a daily basis.
My first encounter with surgery was a triple laparoscopic hernia repair and one hernia was well advanced. I was out of the hospital an hour after surgery, had no pain or any complications from it and was completely back to normal lifestyle in 4 days. Can't be better!
Would definitely choose this doctor again if the need arose. Supremely capable and caring; takes time to explain procedures, results.
Performed Gall Bladder surgery on me. He explained everything to me beforehand and made me feel very at ease. Surgery went very well and my recovery was very quick. I would feel very comfortable returning to him if I need surgery again.
I first met with Dr. Shane Dawson after my OBGYN suspected that I had a hernia. Dr. Shane Dawson did diagnose me with an inguinal hernia and proceeded to advise me regarding my options for the surgery to repair it. He also eventually did perform the surgery at Lenox Hill hospital. From beginning to end, Dr. Shane Dawson was honest, kind, efficient, and professional. Throughout what could have been a very unpleasant experience, he made me feel secure and at ease. It's now two months after the surgery and I feel great. The surgical process itself was seamless and the recovery was exactly as described. I highly recommend Dr. Shane Dawson and I thank him dearly with taking such good care of me!
My entire experience with Dr. Dawson and the staff not only at the office, but at the surgery site was exceptionally and refreshingly pleasant. Dr. Dawson is kind, personable, and spoke to me clearly about the procedure in terms that I could understand and in a way that made me feel completely at ease. My total time spent in the office on my initial visit was less than 45 minutes, and most of that time I spent actually talking to Dr. Dawson. My time in the waiting area was short, and my surgery was scheduled within minutes after meeting with Dr. Dawson. Day of the surgery I was amazed at how friendly and efficient every single staff member was that I came into contact with. I never once felt rushed, but I also didn't spend any time waiting around for something else to happen. The entire staff operated like a well oiled machine. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Dawson. From my first appointment through my follow-up, every moment and interaction has been easy and very human.
Fantastic doctor, made me feel comfortable before and after surgery, takes time with patients, answers all questions, highly recommended!!!
Best doctor! Kind,Caringâ¦unusual in his skill in presenting complicated medical situations in an informative and understandable way.Patient and caring. Will NOT do surgery unless it's necessary.
Had an appendectomy on Xmas. Not exactly how I would choose to spend it, but Dr. Dawson literally saved my life. Not only is he an excellent surgeon (I was up and walking around the SAME DAY), but he is a compassionate and caring human being. If you ever need a general surgeon, Dr. Dawson is the one to use.
Ive never had anything serious in my 52 years.Then my GP didn't do the right thing and was sent to Dr. Dawsonalthough he is out of network, yes I got a big bill it has all been the best experiance, and if you do go Kathy his asst. Is the best for the best. First time I brought a Dr a gift!!!
