07/11/13 4 4 5 5 Dr. Shawa in my husband's opinion "cured" me! I am extremely grateful I found him. After years of severe chronic pains, he was and is the only dr that actually listened and helped me. He gave me my life back!! I can now function with minimal pain medications and I feel better then I have in years. He advised me and educated me and helped me get 100% relief from my lumbar pains. I trust and will fiollow him wherever he goes. Highly recommend this dr to anyone in severe chronic pains.

22/01/13 5 4 5 5 Just make an appointment and I promise you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Dr. Shawa definitely gave me answers and solutions that relieved me of pain more on a permanent basis rather than just a band aid of drugs. He and his staff are polite and professional, an "A" rated medical staff that are worthy to be praised and recognized.
