Dr Scott Shaw is a really nice, authentic guy who is a great listener. He is supportive and always follows up after your call. We have a mutual interest in martial arts and he has encouraged me to get back into training to help my health. I enjoy working with him and highly recommend him to others.

Great coach! Great at listening, pushing the conversations forward and giving structured work to move forward with.

Dr. Shaw is extremely professional but also gets to know you personally. He takes the time to understand how you are as a person and the characteristics you have to sharpen an understanding. Sometimes it's a slow process seeing it from a different perspective but Dr. Shaw is phenomenal shining that different light. A class gentleman in my book.
