“I went in to receive Botox, I have been using it for over a year and love the results, however, this was my 1st visit to Shaw Plastic Surgery. I was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff, the decor of the office, and the professionalism of Dr. Shaw himself. He took the time to explain why he was putting the product in certain spots and understood my needs. Thank you Shaw Surgery!”
