I find Dr. Shah to be an excellent doctor, he is always on top of things with me as far as getting appointments set up right away even if that means asking that I be squeezed into the schedule. He's very open and honest with me about my diagnosis and what he believes is the right path to choose for treatment for the longevity of my life.

I am totally comfortable and confident that I will receive the best of care from Dr. Shah. He is an outstanding surgeon.

July 13, 2020 4:23 PM

This is my second experience with Dr. Shah as my surgeon for breast cancer. He was also my surgeon 14 years ago. He is always kind, professional, and empathetic. He explains options and procedures and outlines next steps. He works in conjunction with my oncologist, Dr. X, to provide outstanding medical care.

July 8, 2020 11:36 AM

Really appreciate Dr. Shah got me in person ASAP during this health crisis.

June 10, 2020 8:20 AM

February 4, 2020 8:06 AM

I had talked with my PC physician regarding a hernia that I had had for about 1 yr. It has not been a material issue, but I wanted to get a second opinion due to an active trip coming up in June. Dr. Shah was very helpful regarding choices.

December 30, 2019 4:00 PM

the front desk staff appeared helpful but didn't actually follow through on the things they said they would do for me

December 30, 2019 4:00 PM

Dr. Shah was nice but I had to remind him about abnormal labs at a previous visit as no one had ever gone over those with me or recommended any follow up

December 17, 2019 1:49 PM

Great care and service.

December 17, 2019 10:12 AM

Having to call the call center to get to doctors office is slow and aggravating. A patient should be able to call doctors office directly.

December 16, 2019 4:24 PM


December 12, 2019 12:53 PM

It was done very well.

December 4, 2019 12:12 PM

Hope I don't need him again but if I do, I can rest assured he will take care of me.

December 4, 2019 12:12 PM

October 12, 2019 7:00 PM

October 3, 2019 7:00 PM

Waited 1 (one) hour before seeing DR. Shah! Way too long!!!

September 30, 2019 7:00 PM

100% satisfied.

September 16, 2019 7:00 PM

I have the utmost respect for Dr. Manoj Shah. His honesty, wonderful care, concern and special gifts are a "gift from God" to me. He is a living testimony to the mission statement of Advocate Lutheran General. He has gone beyond the call of duty to help pull together a new medical team for me. This new medical team is amazing and truly dedicated to helping me on so many levels. God Bless You, Dr. Manoj Shah and all those medical professionals you have brought into my life! Thank you for helping me and so many others. You are so loved by so many.

too short did not even get a change to ask him questions before he walked out of the room

July 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent service.

July 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Both surgeons were wonderful.

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

I think this is the best provider/surgeon (Dr. Shah) that Advocate Medical Group has. He was extremely honest with me, professional, didn't want to do surgery on me for my gallbladder because he did not think that would help me in my case, and in the end, he was 100% correct. He took his time with me, answered all my questions, drew diagrams and always had eye contact with me. He was extremely respectful to me, and I didn't feel like I was rushed; the opposite, made me feel welcome and like I was his only patient (even though I know he has a lot of patients) I wish that all AMG provider were this wonderful. His consultation meant a great deal to me, and he studied my case and knew everything before I came in for the visit. Dr. Shah is one of a kind.

April 29, 2019 7:00 PM
