Recommended by:

  • byDr Miles Edward Christie, GP

    I recommend Prof. Greg Shaw because I have found him to be hugely knowledgeable, extremely approachable on all aspects of urology and explains what could be potentially confusing information in a straightforward and affable manner. Patients feel very comfortable and confident in his care. I understand him to be an excellent surgeon with particular skill in robotic surgery for the prostate. But he is also my go-to man for the more everyday urological complaints of my patients. Highly Recommended.
