Steven Shaw, MD
“My goal through preventative medicine and minimally invasive surgery is to reduce the risk of more serious diseases, and to avoid major surgery when possible.”
I joined The Everett Clinic after 10 years of practice in Seattle, where I developed a strong interest in colon cancer prevention by means of polyp removal during colonoscopy and gained special skills in advanced diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The detection and removal of flat colon polyps has become a major focus in my practice.
I chose a career in gastroenterology in part because of some early exposure to the field. Growing up, we had a family friend who was a gastroenterologist, and through him I was able to observe firsthand what the profession entailed. The thing that impressed me the most was seeing how cutting edge technology was evolving and how minimally invasive procedures were changing medicine. I knew I wanted to be a part of that.
Sports, music, time with family.
Why The Everett Clinic?
At the urging of colleagues who had previously moved their practices from Seattle to The Everett Clinic, I came and toured the clinic. I had always been aware of the strong reputation The Everett Clinic had in the community, but it wasn't until I came and observed firsthand the clinic’s Core Values being lived out in the patient care provided that it became such a clear choice.
