    From my first appointment with Mr Shaw to the present day all my consultations have been concise, helpful and informative. Mr Shaw reassured me before the operation, he was very attentive post surgery and has been very helpful in the consultations afterwards. Mr Shaw's manner puts you at ease and you have no doubt that he is an expert at the top of his field and that he is suggesting the course of action that he believes is the best for the patient. I would recommend Mr Shaw to others that are considering prostate surgery.
