Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) proudly announces the addition of Gregory Shaw, M.D., interventional radiologist.
Dr. Shaw received his Bachelor of Science degree from The University of California, Riverside, and his medical degree from The University of California, Los Angeles David Geffen School of Medicine.
He completed his diagnostic radiology residency at University of California San Diego and an interventional radiology fellowship at The University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria.
A full-service interventional radiologist, Dr. Shaw specializes in image guided minimally invasive procedures for arterial disease, including peripheral, aortic and carotid vein disease, tumor biopsies and treatment and dialysis access. He will also be placing a strong emphasis on preventing amputations.
Dr. Shaw’s career path was influenced early as he worked with his grandfather, who was an aeronautical engineer. He heavily considered going into engineering, but as he continued his education he became more interested in medicine.
“I was sold as soon as I found out about interventional radiology, a specialty that really marries the fields of medicine and engineering and lets you directly treat patients as well,” said Dr. Shaw. “You can use the set of interventional radiology techniques to diagnose and treat diseases throughout the body through an injection about one quarter in size. You can adjust the treatment and problem solve as necessary. To me, the field is efficiently the marriage between the engineering and medical fields.”
He is excited to be part of the PMC interventional radiology department and providing care to the people of the region. He says he is very impressed with PMC and is glad to see the hospital has the equipment and personnel necessary to give his patients world-class care.
He grew up in a small town in the San Bernardino Mountains, in the town of Lake Arrowhead. He says it is much like Pikeville.
He says he is very anxious to get involved in the hospital and also in the community.
In his spare time, he enjoys woodworking, snowboarding, scuba diving and spending time with his family. He is extremely interested in outdoor activities and is looking forward to kayaking and river rafting.
Dr. Shaw is located in the PMC Interventional Radiology Department on the 2nd floor of the Pam May Clinic Building.
