Roxana Shaw is a physician assistant working in a direct patient care capacity in support of Restoration Healthcare’s Medical Director. Roxana examines patients, interprets lab and test results offers treatment and education and collaborates with our physicians in the development, communication, and implementation of patient plans of care.
Roxana was drawn to our team here at Restoration Healthcare because our philosophy of Mind-Body Medicine mirrored her own. She says Integrative Healthcare — in her case, combining conventional Western medicine training with her Eastern and Holistic medicine upbringing — has always been of interest to her. Equally important is educating patients on alternatives to pharmaceuticals.
Her approach to patient care focuses on the patient and their disease as a whole as opposed to a set of discreet individual organs or conditions. Adding to her focus is an interest in empowering patients on their health journey through education, collaboration, and creating a space where they feel supported.
Born and raised in New York City, Roxana lived in Tehran, Iran, during her adolescence, and is fluent in English, Spanish, and Farsi. She received her Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and her undergraduate degree in Biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University, in Madison, NJ.
Roxana’s professional affiliations include membership in the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine, the California Academy of Physician Assistants, and the American Academy of Physician Assistants. Her professional training includes continuing education in the areas of Mind-Body Medicine, Compassionate Inquiry, and Women’s Functional & Integrative Medicine.
Roxana is married and has two teen-aged children — a 17-year-old daughter and a son who is 13.
