Alison W. Shew earned her medical degree from Wake Forest University in 2016 and completed her OB/Gyn residency at Virginia Commonwealth University. She is excited to be a part of the Duke team providing obstetric and gynecologic care to women in Wake County. Dr. Shew enjoys being an obstetrician and gynecologist because of the opportunity to care for patients in different settings – including delivering babies, following patients in the office, and performing surgery. It is important for her to develop relationships with her patients that are based on trust and understanding. She recognizes that patients often share deeply sensitive and personal concerns, and she strives to ensure that each patient feels that she has been heard and considers her to be their advocate.
