Chris Shaw is hands down the best doctor I´ve ever had. He´s caring, knowledgable, and kind -- and I know he genuinely cares for my well being and long term health. I recommend him to everyone I know looking for a doctor. I moved to Auburn 2 years ago, but am happy to make the 1+ hour drive (each way) to see Dr. Shaw. He´s very much worth it. Some doctors have giant egos -- Chris Shaw is not one of them, and it makes him one of the best!

Chris is the best provider I´ve ever had.

Seeing Shaw was the best specialist care I´ve ever received outside of my family members who are MD´s.

March 2017
Dr. Shaw was recommended to me for treatment of my migraines by Cristin Hovey PT at Evergreen Rehab. He is the best PCP I have had so far- on par with Dr Chris Gerard GP at Lakeshore Clinic.

When making appointments they tell you you only have 20 minutes. I have tried to schedule 2 appointments in a row if I think it will go over 20 minutes. I feel rushed when I am with my doctor. But my doctor does his best to give me the best care possible. I really enjoy Chris Shaw PAC as my doctor. Our doctor of 25 years retired recently. My daughter used Chris Shaw as her doctor and really liked him. We tried him and now he is our whole family doctor.

Chris Shaw is personable, funny, and competent.

Chris was very friendly and had my best treatment in mind. He addressed all my concerns and worked with me in the way that made things easiest on me. What´s really nice is that he takes his time when talking with you; you never feel rushed. He really thinks about what will help you the most and puts it into action immediately. He´s a really great person to work with and I´m glad he is my doctor.

Chris is always willing to work in my son´s illnesses or injuries. He was very compassionate and fun. Making the situation the best in could be.

June 2016
Only one matter. The provider indicated he would call me the next day. No call. The call was to explain the results of his contacts with others so he may have had difficulties.

June 2016
Knew exactly what I have, and we put a plan in motion! Very confident with Dr Shaw!!!!

May 2016
Was going to get back to with additional results of other opinions. Never did.

May 2016
PA took care of me, very good. (see previous comments)

May 2016
I would have preferred an opportunity for follow-up because the prescribed medications were not effective. I guess I should have followed up on my own. #6. None given.

April 2016
I was very upset about the sudden departure of Dr. Sandra DiAngi. Chris spent 30 minutes with me giving me reassurance and helping me through this. I very much appreciated how kind he was.

April 2016
I did not care for Dr. Shaw´s beside manner. He made a lot of assumptions. Made a few comments about my getting/being old. I don´t feel like he asked pertinent questions about my condition to try to understand my reason for being at the clinic.

April 2016
Chris Shaw is very knowledgeable and always concerned about every aspect of my health. I always highly recommend him to any of my friends that are looking for a new doctor.

January 2016
Chris Shaw is hands down the best doctor I´ve ever had - he´s thorough, respectful, personable, caring, and very knowledgeable. At a prior appointment, he mentioned that he would do some research on a condition that he didn´t know the answer to immediately. I have so much respect for a doctor who is willing to say that they need to research something, and then follow up and share the results with the patient. I very much appreciate Chris Shaw´s positive attitude, his sense of humility, and his kind heart!
