Dr. Dave seems to be very knowledgeable about her area of expertise, my only comment would be that she seems to lack customer connection/empathy. I went in to talk about the anxiety I have been dealing with and she kine of analyzed me like a lab rat. Very skeptical, while she did a good job I think situations like those require more warmth/personal connection.

March 18, 2020 9:32 AM

I believe in my doctor and trust her completely.

March 18, 2020 9:32 AM

Visit was good and beneficial in many ways.

March 9, 2020 2:11 PM

Dr. Dave is always professional and caring. I definitely trust her advice and appreciate any and all feedback I receive from her staff.

March 9, 2020 2:11 PM

A good experience for me is a health are provider who reviews my records and takes the time to check up on all current conditions as well as those that have been treated and inquires about how my well being is progressing in general.

March 6, 2020 11:00 PM

Very concerned of what I am experiencing. Very helpful.

March 6, 2020 11:00 PM

Felt comfortable talking with her.

February 16, 2020 11:39 AM

I love Dr. Dave - she always takes the time to listen and encourages me rather than guilts me about the areas where I could use some improvement.

February 12, 2020 4:40 PM

As always, Dr. Dave was wonderful. She listens to me about my overall health and has great advise to live better and healthier. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great doctor!

I was impressed by Dr. Dave professionalism and her willingness to help.

February 6, 2020 1:36 PM

Dr. Dave is a wonderful doctor and I refer people to her any time I hear someone is looking for a new doctor. She hasn't taken excellent care of me for some time now and is a genuinely caring person. I am blessed to have her on my health care team.

January 29, 2020 3:49 PM

I was pleased she worked me in for an appointment and was able to start medication for terrible cough and pneumonia.

January 28, 2020 10:02 PM

Good Dr but not very friendly

January 28, 2020 10:02 PM

Does not spend much time with me. Staff does most of the things.

January 27, 2020 2:43 PM

I was pleased to get an appointment the same day I called in. This was a post-hospital appointment where my concerns were heard and addressed right away.

January 20, 2020 5:58 AM

She takes her time, she is very friendly, always is smiling when she comes in the room, ask how am I doing, and when I have a question she answers it, not in a hurry to leave.

January 20, 2020 5:58 AM

Good, she is really good about checking me out does a good exam does not _____. Have nothing to say about bad experience. Everybody was good to me.

December 23, 2019 1:56 PM

I plan on keeping her as my Primary Care Doctor!

December 19, 2019 9:59 AM

Nothing additional - Dr. Dave is always there for us. She is the best.

December 16, 2019 2:24 PM

Excellent visit

December 16, 2019 2:24 PM

The only area I'd suggest improvement on is after the doctor left the room. I sat there for 5 minutes wondering if the nurse was coming back or not. I had to go out in the hall and find her. This happened during my last visit as well.

December 16, 2019 1:19 PM

Dr Dave' is always caring and very knowledgeable

December 16, 2019 1:19 PM

I have a very good experience with Dt Dave'

December 12, 2019 8:08 PM

I have always had a very positive experience with Dr. Dave. I will, however be changing to Advocate Oak Street Health, Dr X as I now live in Elgin and Aurora is just to far to drive from Elgin

December 11, 2019 12:18 PM

This is my primary doctor and I trust her judgment and know she is looking out for my health.

December 11, 2019 12:18 PM

I totally trust this doctor with my health and my life!

November 25, 2019 9:11 AM

Excellent appointment results with information for additional health care opportunities.

November 25, 2019 9:11 AM

Excellent experience as usual.

November 20, 2019 12:47 PM

Dr. Dave did what she needed to do during my physical. I appreciate having a female doctor. I will need to have my questions for her and expect her to answer me with more information. I am sure she would give me the time if I kept asking but I was hoping she would take the lead with information.

November 20, 2019 11:42 AM

Did my general exam sent me to have blood taken, x-rays for pain in left hip & a mammogram is an excellent doctor for me. I love her a lot she is concerned about me in all thanks.

November 20, 2019 11:42 AM

She always attends me very good when I have needed she sends me to specialist right away, because I already had a right hip replacement & I am very good.

November 18, 2019 11:00 PM

I don't have many health ssues, but D. Davé has been very good and understanding of my medical needs.

November 1, 2019 7:00 PM


October 30, 2019 7:00 PM

I have gone to Dr. Shilpa Dave for many years, however this year for some reason I felt that the physical I received was not very thorough. It was a different atmosphere compared to other years with seeing my physician.

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Like Dr. Dave

October 22, 2019 7:00 PM

always good.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

This visit seemed better than last year. She was more in-tune with what I was saying and my health. I was not sure if I was going to change primary care doctors or not before this visit, but I may give her another chance. Last year there was a health situation that seemed to bring up red flags about her knowing my health situation, so I was not sure if I would change doctors or not.

October 12, 2019 7:00 PM

she does a great job

September 26, 2019 7:00 PM


September 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Good provider and I would recommend her to family or friends.

September 6, 2019 7:00 PM

friendly, comfortable and professional.

August 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr, Dave listens to me and answers questions or concerns very well. She is easy to talk to and is very understanding

August 18, 2019 7:00 PM


August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Enjoyed my initial visit. Dr. Dav was a good choice for a new Dr.

August 9, 2019 7:00 PM

Good listener and knows my history well. Suggested physical therapy for back disk problems.

August 2, 2019 7:00 PM

July 23, 2019 7:00 PM

dr. Dave is a wonderful doctor and relates to me well. I have much faith in her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor. aside from her medical expertise, she is a warm and caring person.

July 16, 2019 7:00 PM

She always listens to everything you have to say and I feel she spends enough time to address all your concerns.

July 5, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dave was very interested in my upcoming surgery and asked pertinent questions. She is a clinician first and foremost. I value her opinion.

June 16, 2019 7:00 PM

I had this provider for many years. Because of insurance purposes I stepped away for 3 yrs., but now I am very glad andhappy to be with her again. She is an awesome provider.

June 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dave is excellent!! I hope she never leaves!

June 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dave has been my PCP for about the last 10 years. She understands what I've been through in my life and has offered suggestions on how to cope with and improve my situation. In the past 1 1/2 years, I have committed to an exercise program, much healthier diet and significantly reduced my alcohol consumption. I've now lost 34 pounds and feel better than I did 10 years ago! I'm pretty good at 59 and Dr. agrees! Amen!

May 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Came in for pregnancy test and concerns. I've never been pregnant before so I wasn't sure what to do, plus I am moving out of state and didn't want to wait weeks before being seen in my new state. This provider was kind, but told me they didn't need to do a pregnancy test, nor a physical exam. She didn't even ask me when I got my last period. I described some pain I was having and I got the sense she wasn't listening to me-- following up with sentences undermining what I explained. She did order me an ultrasound, which I appreciated.

May 27, 2019 7:00 PM

didn't seem like I had enough time with provider.

May 22, 2019 7:00 PM

The doctor that I saw at Dreyer for close to 20 years left there. I'm really happy that I chose Dr. Dave' for my new doctor.

May 20, 2019 7:00 PM


May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Unpleasant bedside manner. Comes off a bit judgmental. Did not feel that all my symptoms were addressed.

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dave is always on time, listens to me and remembers my medical history

May 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dave is a wonderful doctor. She listens and is always helpful and respectful of me.

May 17, 2019 7:00 PM

I always have had a good experience with Dr. Dave and her staff.

May 13, 2019 7:00 PM

My doctor is caring and attentive. She knows the stress I've been under the past several years taking care of my dying husband , who had ALS. She was concerned for me during the whole 6 years of his illness and expressed concern when I told her he had passed away. I appreciate her care for me and my health.

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dave' is very concerned about my health and spends time with me to discuss it. I like her very much

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dave is a caring, professional provider, always willing to explain things and advise me when I ask questions.

April 26, 2019 7:00 PM


April 19, 2019 7:00 PM

This visit went very well. I felt like my provider knew me, even though I usually only come for my yearly physical. The provider took so much time to sit, talk to me, ask questions, and just LISTEN. I felt so good walking away from this appointment because I felt like the provider really and truly cared about me and my well-being. I never once felt rushed or that there were other patients the doctor needed to see, she was so kind and took her time with me.

March 22, 2019 7:00 PM

I went with several concerns and was taken seriously and more tests ordered

March 22, 2019 7:00 PM

I had a pap test done and I still do not have the results- It has been 10 days

March 21, 2019 7:00 PM


February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Dave is an excellent listener and very much cares about my well being. I asked her a question and she gave me some good sound advice and suggested an alternative to my concern.

February 6, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Shilpa Dave' is always caring & professional!

February 2, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Dave is the best! Always takes good care of me. She has my health history at her finger tips. Takes care of all my many problems.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

excellent doctor

January 28, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Dave and I get along very well.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Doctor and all staff were very kind, respectfull, and helpful.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

very good visit!

January 26, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Dave is always a competent & caring Physician.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM


January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Annual checkup went well. Dr Dave was nice and caring and knowledgable.

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

I have gained considerable amount of weight in the last couple years and Dr. Dave talked to me about it. I think it was her gentle concern and her encouragement that I appreciated most. Dr. Dave has been my PCP the last several years and she has been a caring physician. Dreyer (and Aurora) is very lucky to have her!

January 14, 2019 6:00 PM

Great doctor who knows my health history and is supportive and encouraging
