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.

Dr. Shaw offered me more than one option for treatment, explained the pros and cons of each, accepted my choice, and offered information about what to do if the option I chose did not work.

I was told to continue taking a medication that could not be interrupted without compromising its effectiveness. The office then denied the refill, even though I was there that day. Over a week later, I still can't get a basic prescription faxed to the pharmacy, and care is not compromised.

My provider was professional, personable and comfortable to be around. ALL of the things you want to find in a doctor. I've has psoriasis for 34 years, It's not always easy to unveil your condition to strangers but I felt at ease with her. She is a 'must keep' to your clinic.

My provider was extremely respectful, calm and comforting during a difficult time for me. She eased my concerns and gave me as much time as I needed to feel like all of my questions were answered. The nurse who worked with me was also efficient, respectful and kind, and immediately put me at ease.

she doesn't seem to listen when I tell her about my concerns about treatment. Twice in the after visit summery I received, some information about the rest of the treatment re. the meds was not written in. Found out about this on my next visit.

The visits themselves are great; the problems seem to come afterwards. During my last visit I called a total of four times in an effort to obtain test results, and never got them. Even during this visit (which was a follow up) I had to ask for my test results twice. I have no confidence that they will call with test results for the tests that were just completed. I also apparently needed to do a blood test, but no one told me this, so I went to the follow up visit having not completed the recommended tests. Now I have to wait even longer for a diagnosis, and it's already difficult to get an appointment there.

Over the last year, I've seen Dr. Shaw for 2 appointments concerning specific health issues as well as for a complete dermatological examination during my last recent visit. On both occasions, I have been quite satisfied with her assessments and plans of treatment ... and am confident that I am getting the best care possible.

Everyone from the front desk, the nurses to the doctor were professional but very approachable. They were knowledgeable, helpful and pro-active. I know I am in excellent hands when I see Dr. Shaw, and have thus already recommended her to people I know have come to see her. The facility environment overall is warm and competent. Thank you!

When I phoned for service, the receptionist was very concerned and put me on a priority wait list. I had just had some skin cancer removed and a new site began. She did get me in within a few weeks.

My dad, [...] has been going to Dr. Shaw for quite some time now for his skin cancer issues. She is always very nice and good about communicating with us about his ongoing care. I really like all the other staff as well- the nurses and receptionists are all very nice and considerate people. I wish my insurance was covered by this office because I would want Dr. Shaw to be my dermatologist as well.

I would have liked a better explanation of my treatment options, and the risks associated with each type of treatment. Would also have liked any recommendations on changes I can make to my diet to treat my condition (psoriasis).

i like scheduling through mychart [...]. Also, the derm practice is very busy, and even though I had an active lesion, it was very difficult to schedule an appointment within 2 months. AFter whining, I was called back and fit in, but that shouldn't be necessary.

This was a yearly skin check, so there was a narrow focus of health concerns. Dr. Shaw took care of the areas I had questions about in a very satisfactory manner.

I found the exam extremely cursory. I've had skin issues in the past and many full body skin checks before so I know what is usually involved. She basically briefly scanned my skin with her eyes and called it good.

It seems odd that the ask me to be at my appointment 15 minutes before the scheduled time as it is rare that I am called back by the appointment time so it just makes the wait seem even longer.

The one and only negative remark is that I have to wait almost 15 minutes past my appointments to see my doctor, and then I feel like my appointments are rushed through to see me, and then get on to the next patient. Maybe the doctor is trying to squeeze in too many patients during the day.
