Biography & Education

Biography

Dr. Tatyana Shaw believes that medicine is as much about the patients as it is the science. Her areas of expertise are skin cancer and prevention, acne, eczema and psoriasis.

"I believe my most important role as a dermatologist is to serve as an expert in a variety of skin conditions so I can provide the best care possible for my patients," she says.

"Medicine is a very visual field," said Dr. Shaw, "where you can often look at someone's skin and know exactly how to help them. Helping to resolve a patient's skin condition is rewarding."

After earning her medical degree from Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Dr. Shaw completed an internship at Providence Portland Medical Center and a dermatology residency at OHSU. Dr. Shaw is board certified in dermatology.

Dr. Shaw was born in Russia but completed her education in the United States. She is married with two children, and in her free time she enjoys hiking, skiing and traveling. Dr. Shaw is fluent in Russian.

There was a 3 month wait to see this specialist. [...] Between the waiting room and exam room I waited 55 minutes to see her and then she spoke with me for 5 minutes. I've been asked to return for follow-up in three months but I'm looking for another provider instead.

Dr. Shaw saw me more than an hour after my scheduled appointment and was rude. She acted like I should not be there and I was referred by my doctor. I will never go to her again and will request a different provider from that office if I need to go to that office again. the office staff as you walk in was great but the doctor was very inconsiderate. She also acted like my questions were stupid and did not answer my concerns. She would not provide me with recommendations for my issue either. my wait time was terrible and I had a business appointment that I missed because of her seeing me so late after my scheduled appointment.

[...] I was worried about Cancer and it still took about two months to get in.
60

06/28/2017
Dr. Shaw is very brisk and while answers questions, doesn't give a full explanation in layman's term of condition or possible remedies. With a simple benign growth no big deal, with something more questionable/concerning, I don't know that I would feel I received "the whole story".

I felt very comfortable with Dr Shaw and her medical assistant. it is rare to find a great team! they took care of all my concerns quickly, but I still didn't feel rushed.

06/11/2017
I had two areas on my face biopsied, and Dr. Shaw, along with her medical assistant were excellent. They both were curteous, and careful with me during the whole process. I would highly recommend Dr Shaw.

06/07/2017
The provider was well informed of the skin issues I saw her for. It took close to two months to get the appointment which was very frustrating. It wasn't easy to understand the solutions to the skin issues I have. I do not think the assistant understood the provider as well. During this visit I had a test performed on a spot on my back. It was then determined that I need to schedule another appointment to have it removed completely. The earliest appointment they had available was late July. I was unable to take the appointment due to my schedule and they suggested I call back at another time to reschedule. The fact that I need to come back in concerns me and I am completely unsure how serious this skin problem is. I asked for a referral to see another provider who could get me in sooner than late July but I have yet to hear back.

I wish that she would have shown me exactly where she was going to remove tissue for biopsy and explained why

04/19/2017
My first visit the doctor didn't say goodbye to me when she left the room - the second visit she was so nice and friendly. I was pleased that she was friendlier.
80

04/17/2017
Dr. Shaw and her assistant were very professional and welcoming. Sometimes specialists act like you shouldn't have come. Instead, when I explained the situation (my rash had mostly gone away so there was no immediate issue, but since it is often recurring, I felt it was important to establish a patient/doctor relationship), the assistant asked if I'd ever had a full body screen for skin cancer. I really appreciated that - I had never had one, and there were several small spots that need to be watched. We now have a baseline, and that would not have happened had the assistant and Dr. Shaw not been proactive.

04/12/2017
I did way more waiting than I thought was appropriate. My appt was scheduled for 915. I was told to come 15mins early. I was there and not called back until maybe 945. I understand things happen but it was too long. Then, when getting ready to leave, she forgot to take care of the prescription sonI had to sit in the room and wait more for the MA to get it so I could leave. On a positive note, she came to the room quickly once I was dressed in the gown.

Visit with Doctor was fast, I felt she was behind and needed to catch up - did not feel she spent enough time with me

My only complaint is when I was at the front desk/ clerk. I don't want my personal info asked out load for the rest of the lobby to hear it. personal info as in, name, contact info, home address. All things I would rather not have a room full of people hearing or knowing about me. Other then that. 'Twas great

I have been receiving care from Dr. Tatyana Shaw for several years. I have found her to provide excellent care for all issues. She is extremely knowledgeable, competent, well trained, as well as very caring. She consistently seeks my input and participation in treatment options. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.

I went to this dermatologist to check on a small dark grown on my forehead. She determined that it was OK, but then she saw something in my right temple area, did a biopsy which alter showed basal cell carcinoma, surgery scheduled for [...]. I'm glad Dr. Shaw looked beyond simply what I had presented to her!
100

02/28/2017
thorough, knowledgable, compassionate care.
60

02/28/2017
This physician, I believe, is very knowledgable. I spent more times getting undressed and dressed than she spent with me however. She was very pleasant, and efficient, though rushed. I felt like I'd been "squeezed" in even though I had an 8:30 AM appointment.
60

02/20/2017
Dr. Shaw did her exam and that was the extent of my appointment. she didn't ask me any questions about myself of history. she was very abrupt and seemed rushed. I was also put off by the male CMA who came back into the room durning my exam. I sought out a female MD for a reason to not have a male in the room. neither asked if I was okay with the situation. I'm sure some patients don't care but at least asking would be the respectful thing to do.

12/29/2016
It was good.
80

12/28/2016
I would have appreciated the nurse asking if I'd prefer no male staff in the room during my exam. It was awkward that I had to request this while a male nurse was in the room.

12/21/2016
it took more than a month to get an appointment
100

12/09/2016
Was told there would be printed instructions for follow-up care, but none were provided. When I asked for them, none were available. This is my only criticism of this care provider.

12/04/2016
The care I received from the staff was excellent.

12/01/2016
I felt rushed, provider in a hurry to conclude the appointment. Growth she froze still has not fallen off, is now 'weeping' fluid!
80

11/21/2016
She was very nice and helpful. I appreciated being able to ask her questions. my only concern is that the exam part seemed very fast. with skin cancer concerns I wanted her too slow down. but she may be just that good that she can see things very fast. but only for that reason I felt a bit concerned. but she did find some and took care of things right away. I got my results by a personal call in less than 24 hrs. which was impressive.

I was hoping that some of my more troublesome areas could have been frozen off.
80

11/15/2016
I felt the appointment was a little rushed, which may just mean that there wasn't anything concerning, but it would have been nice to know why she looked at the spots she did, if there was anything to watch for, and how/if the spots she looked at were recorded in anyway for future reference. Other than that, my questions that I had on the spot were answered greatly and the overall experience was very pleasant.

There was a young man in the room, possibly a nurse, while I was being examined. I didn't particularly feel comfortable, since I had to be naked and would have preferred he not be there or that it was a woman.
