  • Clinical Psychology

    A psychologist is someone who specializes in the study of the mind, as well as human behavior. Psychologists sometimes focus on certain types of people or certain age ranges.

There are many reasons why someone would see a psychologist including PTSD, issues with self esteem, OCD, alcoholism, ADD and more.

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

be careful

My treatment w/ Shaw has gotten progressively worse/concerning. Initially she helped b/c she continued to prescribe a med that worked well, but as that med stopped working, she prescribed many others simultaneously that seemed like blind guesses and would neglect to provide any information about dosing, timing and side effects to look out for. I would ask her about this by calling & emailing, but she would respond until days later after I followed up. Does not seem fit to practice. Be careful!

BEWARE! Scientifically Illiterate, Inconsiderate, Unprofessional

– Espouses belief in pseudoscientific conspiracy theories during the session: chemtrails, climate change denial, anti-vax, anti-GMO (I've worked extensively with agriculture and environmental science, so this is a topic I have personally studied in great detail; she has no clue what she's talking about) – Practices pseudoscientific therapies, i.e. homeopathy – Subscribes to largely discredited schools of psychological thought, i.e. Jungian psychotherapy – Prescribes inappropriate medications, i.e. an $80-per-bottle "male enhancement" supplement for anxiety and ADD – Delays in sending prescriptions to pharmacies, even when made clear that timeliness is important – Sends incorrect prescriptions – This happened multiple times. She failed to apologize or acknowledge wrongdoing, suggesting that it is *my* responsibility to remind her how to send in a monthly prescription for a medication *she* has been prescribing; she, as my doctor, should be taking appropriate notes to avoid these issues. – Draconian cancellation policy – 3 business days in advance or you get charged, i.e. I couldn't cancel a Tuesday appointment on Friday without getting charged – Unwilling to schedule an appointment for 3 months from now – which is when she said she next wants to see me – because, direct quote, "I never know where I'll be 3 months from now." – Texts, answers calls during sessions She should have her medical license revoked. This is disgusting.

Don't get the negativity!

Well, I'm not sure I get where the negativity about Dr. Shaw is coming from. I did actually ask her about the recliner (though I didn't find it condescending) and she shared it helps with lower back and leg discomfort. And what doctor doesn't run a little late. I've sat in my family practice doc's office for almost an hour. I found her cheerful and personable, and have been with doctors who type on computers almost the whole time you're with them. Oh well! My experience is that her questions and diagnoses were surprisingly to the point, accurate, and helpful. She also offered a number of treatment options and explained the pros and cons. I actually feel better than I have in many, many years, in a large part due to her multi-factorial treatment. And did I mention that she'll do talk therapy, and is very insightful? Unusual in this day and age. She's been a great find and I recommend her very much.

One Star

The service is not good as a psychiatrist, She doesn't have any organization in a patient information record, Her office looks ugly, She is no good to keep in record the medication she prescribed, In my personal experience she didn't have on record how many different medications she prescribed. For example, she made me call Walgreens to ask for all psychiatric medications. She lose my personal file most of the times I show up for my appointment, The last visit she told me she is going to be out of town for one month. She is not good to prescribe medication because she don't ask on what type of medicine you're on.

Poor

I went to school in the state of Washington and she was local, around where my family lived. I heard her ex-husband was great, so I thought I would trust that guidance. Unfortunately my ignorance got the best of me. I was always courteous and on time, but was never seen on time. I always had to wait. She did not my return calls promptly. She gave me very little guidance and did not have satisfying answers when I approached her with concerns about taking some medications known to have serious side affects. I was forced to do the research myself because I was uncomfortable relying on her suggestions. Luckily, I have a lot of experience on my chemistry and how to take care of myself so I was able to mitigate these concerns. My worry is for others with less experience with their condition. The only reason I think she diagnosed me correctly was because I told her of my previously diagnosed condition. She asked me very little about my history. When my insurance changed to having medications mailed to my home instead of being able to pick them up from the pharmacy, I gave her a call and provided the number she would need to call so I could continue to get my medications. She complained about the time it took to give information to the "800 numbers" and left me a rude voicemail even though I assured her it was a quick process after asking the insurance company myself to verify that fact. I moved down to Los Angeles and, luckily, am on my way to being seen by somebody else. There are a lot of wonderful doctors in the Seattle area. I suggest doing your homework and seeing somebody else if you are less experienced monitoring your condition or if you require moderate-extensive monitoring.
