I have been seeing Dr. Shaw for about five years and I would recommend him to anyone. He has always diagnosed my condition and given me the correct medications on the first visit. He has always told me to call back if I wasn't better in so many days or if I had any problems. I have never had to call back, I have always gotten better and had no problems. When my husband was laid off and we had no insurance, Dr. Shaw would give me sample packs of medications or prescriptions that were reasonably priced. I have recommended him to several people and he has provided excellent care for them also. He called a surgeon himself about a cyst my brother had and the surgeon saw him immediately. Yes, I think Dr. Shaw is an excellent doctor, and I have no plans of changing to anyone else.

I have been seeing Dr. Shaw for 2 years now and have had nothing but best from him I would not change doctors. I have 4 disks messed up in my back and when it went out for the first time I went to him he sent me right out to get tests ran on my back and by the next day I knew what was wrong. he then sent me to physical therapy by calling and telling me that he was setting it up I did not go back into his office till therapy was over. I have been to him for many things and he has been accurate everytime. the office staff has always be nice and considerate to myself and my husband. I cant state that he is the best I have ever been to but he is in the top 2 and since I have a on going disorder I see many doctors and this one is great.

I do not recommend this practice due to it being too costly and the employees are rude. Dr. Shaw does NOT fix your problem or try to diagnose you unless you are willing to make about 3 more office visits within a few weeks.

Freedom of speech has nothing to do with the service Dr. Shaw will not give patients. He is a lousy Doctor and a quack. A Walker County Sheriff's Detective told me that a patient of his died from an incorrect diagnosis a few years ago and the grieving husband entered the office with the intention of killing him out of vengeance. He also sends out crazy rude letters to ex-patients once they change practices telling them not to come back. Don't have compassion for him because he has none for you.

PROS: None
CONS: Terrible doctor with no soul

Ouch! Those reviews were razor sharp! This is just one example of how we as American citizens can use our freedom of speech, whether it be for goodwill or just for letting ill tidings spew from our mouths. It can be a great and powerful tool to bring about change for the better or for the worse. Most Amercians use the given right for freedom of speech to convey what comes from their heart with great honesty and fortitude, some use it for a variety of reason, such as; attention that they feel is deserved, anger and feelings of resentment that or neither true nor proved. Some even use it to transmit sarcasms and hurt that may or may not be directed to the right place or persons. So at this time I have chosen to use my right for freedom of expression or speech. I am currently a patient of Dr. Shaw's, and have been for years. As with all types of businesses you will find that there are some disagreeable comments, thoughts, or actions that someone will not approve of;this falls in the area of human nature. I for one, along with many others have only received decent and competent care! Most, of Dr. Shaw's patients will not hesitate to inform anyone that they would not go to another doctor other than Dr.Shaw. Notice, that I state most because of the human factor. Dr. Shaw has performed a vasectomy on my father-in-law which to this day has done the job!Which he no longer does due to the high cost for the patient! He was the only one that could diagnose an acquaintance of mine's medical problem. There are many others that include him in on accurately diagnosing and treating them both mentally and physically. As for the question of the doctor's credentials, I can assure you that he is approved and qualified to serve as a medical doctor. Not only does he practice medicine here at home, he out of the goodness of his heart, and out of his need to heal, this doctor provide his services to our soldiers in Desert Storm! Before this he gave of his services ranked as major in the United States Army. He is a true American in every sense of the word! Dr. Shaw is an extremely excellent and qualified surgeon, I would not hesitate to have him perform his services on me if the need called for it, this includes my self and all of my family members. I noticed the comment about greed and Dr. Shaw, I have to say that this does not correlate to what I know. If you will check, you will find that he has the lowest cost in this area for all services. I have known him to see young children for free and after hours. Never have I had complaints about the filing of my insurance, I happen to know all of these people; I feel on a personal basis. This is because the staff always have gone out of their way to make me feel comfortable, each time I go, everyone has a smile on their face while pleasantly greeting me each time. I know that what I have written can not sway others to my way of thinking, which is truly not my intent. I only wanted to communicate and reiterate to others that there are always two sides to every story.

PROS: Compentant and knowelegable service from the doctor and staff.
CONS:

Lafayette Family Practice/Dr. Shaw is a greedy liar. He lies and tells you on your first visit that you only need to call and he will fix your prescription, but once you are gone, you will have to come in a few more times to get a prescription that should have taken one visit. He does this so that he can charge you for unnecessary visits - this is called greed. He also lies about appointments that you didn't make so he can charge you for that as well. I can't believe that such a person would even claim to be a Christian. ha

PROS: None
CONS: Overcharged for unncecessary visits

This is undoubtedly the worst Dr. practice I've ever been to in my life. Dr. Shaw is the main Dr. and owner. He hires in other Dr.'s and Nurse Practitioners and they come and go. Their sign changes month to month and you never know who will be on duty there. Dr. Shaw certainly is NOT professional in the least.

That's not the worst of it. When I went to see this Dr. and was a patient for a while I came to understand why there was such a problem keeping Dr's or NP's there, as well as regular staff. Dr. Shaw and his wife who runs the front office act like dictators. They yell at staff in public view. Things are disorganized and nobody knows who's doing what. Insurance doesn't get filed properly, if at all.

This is just one example of several nightmares I went thru with these people, but it is the worst. I received a bill from them. They had filed my insurance claims (several of them) 14-16 months after services were rendered and insurance company had declined payment because there's a 12 month limit on claims. Because of their incompetency in not filing in a timely fashion, they expect me to pay cash for their error pronto or they'll send me to collection?? I think not. I hired a lawyer from Ringgold and won. These people are a nightmare, and don't listen to reason. I had gotten no bills from them and had no reason to think that they hadn't settled with insurance over a year ago when they should have.

On other occasions I received several notices from my insurance company that they were double billing for the same dates. Billing for things that had been paid already. Also, they billed a surgery I had as 2 seperately completed surgeries when it was one! The insurance company caught them in their lies and notified me of their investigating them.

I have heard talk from others who've had similar problems. Whether anyone wants to believe it or not, it's true and not an exaggeration. I'm still incredulous that these people are in business and the one good review on here may be a patient, but also works for him, and might be a little biased because of that.

PROS: NONE
CONS: Tries to scam your insurance company & you too
