Dr. Shah is a very compassionate and knowledgeable physician. He explains everything in common sense language.

July 28, 2020 6:37 AM

With the COVID-19 difficulties, everyone at Advocate, from the physician to the nurses in the parking lots assisting patients, should be applauded for the extraordinary efforts they are putting forth.

July 27, 2020 9:36 AM

July 14, 2020 12:48 PM

Although Dr. Shah is not my primary doctor, he was excellent in discussing my issue - tendonitis causing extreme pain in both arms. He referred me to physical therapy and prescribed generic celebrex, which have helped in easing the pain.

July 14, 2020 4:33 AM

it was a good experience I felt he was interested in my health care and wanted to provide me with what I needed to make this happeb

I was not able to see my regular Primary Care Physician, Dr. X until later that week & I needed to see someone right away. I had a bad case of Poison Ivy that was spreading. Dr. Shah was very nice & helped me when I needed it. Very pleased with my visit.

May 23, 2020 11:02 PM

30 years of providing health care - Dr. Shah is the best. I travel from Arizona to see him. I made no health decisions without his input. I TRUST him.

May 13, 2020 8:53 AM

He is always on point. He should be training others to follow in his foot steps. He is always prepared and ready to provide guidance. I am a pt. @ Advocate because of Dr. Shah. He is the best.

May 2, 2020 1:07 AM

very good experience

April 28, 2020 9:09 AM

I won't be an Advocate patient very long into the future. You guys turn a simple phone call with a simple question into a 20 minute question and answer session. Ridiculously inefficient.

April 6, 2020 2:25 PM

This was a tele-visit and it went well. Good dialogue between Dr. Shah and me. he knows my history and gives good, thought out responses. He always ensures his patients understand what he's saying about their medical condition(s). I am glad to be one of his patients.

April 6, 2020 2:25 PM

never had a bad or poor experience with Dr. Shah. He's very professional and a great provider. I appreciate his knowledge and ability to communicate well with his patients so he's understood.

March 23, 2020 9:14 PM

I had a great visit I was taken in right away to a room. The Dr went over everything with me and addressed all of my concerns I had and ordered the proper tests that I needed.

March 16, 2020 3:45 PM

Dr Sumin Shah has been one of the best doctors i have had in my life. He has pushed me to get tests done when i was procrastinating or being difficult. He know how to listen and not make you feel like a number. Great person.

I believe this Doctor is well knowledged I appreciate the time he takes out to speak with me about all my symptoms.

March 7, 2020 6:53 PM

It was my first visit on more than 4 years, the Dr. should ask questions on my personal habits, food. Test prostate or other illness that old people can have. The Dr. should be prepare before the appointment about my records.

March 7, 2020 6:53 PM

The Dr. was very calm and experienced

February 22, 2020 12:04 PM

Dr Shah is very thorough. During my visit for this general checkup he covered everything imaginable. Excellent provider!

February 18, 2020 11:29 AM

Dr. Shah is very thorough. He listens my to concerns, and I have recommended him to 5 family members who have seen him for an appointment. I would recommend this provider to others.

February 18, 2020 11:29 AM

I have always had good experiences with this provider. I have no complaints as he is thorough and shows concern for patients well-being and schedules necessary lab work or other procedures.

February 13, 2020 12:10 PM

Dr. Shea is an outstanding doctor.

February 10, 2020 7:01 AM

I feel we have a personal relationship.

February 4, 2020 11:33 AM

Excellent, He went over my chart asked questions about my medications and took the time to call with the results of blood work. I wasn't home so he also put the answers on my Advocate Aurora and answered a question I had asked through that system almost immediately.

February 4, 2020 11:33 AM

I recently switched doctors because I felt my issues were not handled promptly or with an explanation. The doctor I switched to was excellent in all the things that mattered to me and more.

January 30, 2020 1:19 PM

Dr. Shah is a great doctor! I have followed him where ever he goes. And I respect his judgment, a lot. Great dr.

December 30, 2019 8:56 PM

I really like Dr Shah and trust him completely with my well being.

December 30, 2019 8:56 PM

He always listen to what I say. Does test or testing when necessary. I talked my husband into going to Dr Shah. We think he is great.

December 29, 2019 2:24 PM

it was an excellent. visit. the doctor had all my medical records and prescribed a medication for my IBS that I really needed at the time. I am taking it daily and now and feel much better. The doctor explained what dosage I was getting and what he thought would be the result. He was right on target, and I am most grateful. He was substituting for my regular provider since my regular provider was fully booked with appointments. I am so happy I went into the office that day.

December 29, 2019 2:24 PM

I am most pleased, and I feel this provider was an excellent substitute for my regular provider, who is also very good. I now feel better than I have for several months, and I feel the medication I received helped me immensely. It was a very good experience.

December 23, 2019 1:54 PM

Sometimes I feel rushed and not listened to. But overall I like my PCP. I appreciate the fact that my healthcare coverage is lacking but I want to determine the root cause of my illness(es) and get a plan for treatment and have remission or optimal health, not just treat symptoms. TREAT SYMPTOMS NOT NUMBERS. If my tests are "normal" but I'm suffering from every classic symptom o,f for example, a simple vitamin deficiency, than I would prefer if all my drs would listen to me and not go by just the numbers on tests.

December 21, 2019 5:59 AM


December 12, 2019 10:58 AM

I love Dr. Shah. He is always up on the latest meds & treatments. Always interested & calm.

December 12, 2019 9:46 AM

This was a quick visit to treat an infected thumb, not serious by very painful. My normal physician, Dr. X was not immediately available. Dr. Shah saw me within 24 hours of calling for an appointment. Dr. Shah was very nice, did a thorough examination of my thumb, provided a suitable antibiotic, and told me what to expect in terms of how long it would take for the infection to clear up. He was spot on. Overall, a very good experience.

November 26, 2019 6:28 PM

reception personnel were unprofessional. Let a line form, didn't say anything, such as, I'll be with you in a moment, go to next window, etc. People were getting upset, I moved over to another window & asked why she didn't she call me over. Receptionist said, "I didn't see you" She didn't see a long line had formed & not moving?

November 26, 2019 6:28 PM

Went to get an xray. Waited to register,then waited for an hour, standing! Because there were no available chairs.

November 23, 2019 1:33 AM

he is clever and have good experience

November 23, 2019 1:33 AM

November 13, 2019 7:22 AM

November 11, 2019 3:30 PM

Dr. Shah is a new doctor for me as mine left the practice. He is very easy to talk to and really treats me like a friend he cares about. He encourages me to do the right thing when I need to be encouraged. He understands and cares about my own concerns.

November 4, 2019 6:00 PM

dr Sumin shah is the best dr I have EVER had.

Dr.S Shah was very professional and pleasant as always. He is very thorough during my visit. Dr.Shah always shows genuine concern about my well being. He takes the time to ask questions about my general health concerns.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Shah is an excellent primary doctor. He is the first in my past 3 providers to LISTEN and spend time in a non-rushed manner. He is an example of what/how to be a great primary.

October 18, 2019 7:00 PM

no issues, found him very professional ..

October 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sumin Shah is an excellent doctor. He takes the time to listen.

September 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Shah takes his time reviews medical history listens carefully. If I send a message via the patient portal I receive a response back.

September 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Doctor Shah very caring. worried about my pain and weight control. However because of chronic pain I cannot do any physical exercise to lose weight so I try to be very careful with diet. I feel doctor Shah genuinely cares very much for my health and welfare.

September 21, 2019 7:00 PM

The doctor was very upbeat, friendly, attentive, and spoke clearly and in a friendly manner. It was the first time I met him and I felt very comfortable with him. He had very good patient skills.. He He was a very effective communicator. And I understood everything he said. He answered all my questions and resolved the issue I came in with.

September 13, 2019 7:00 PM

As a physician myself the experience was exactly what I expected and we covered everything that needed to be covered, all in a very friendly and professional manner

September 1, 2019 7:00 PM

he didn't check my heart rate or anything just showed him the bumps that I had he was looking at it from far didnt even take a closer look to see what kind of allergy I had and he told me I might have scabies made me feel sad and I cried on my way back home bc I'm not a dirty person he was taking fast thinking I had something contagious so I went to a different immediate care they told me its poison ivy rash and gave me a steroid shot that he told me you dont need a shot bc I was so itchy and they put me on higher pill dosage than the one Sumin Shah prescribed it was the worst visit by him I dont recommend him for anyone !!

September 1, 2019 7:00 PM

I like my provider, but was hoping he'd talk to me more about my symptoms, help me to figure out what could be causing them, but most importantly listen to me. He also said someone would call with my results. It's now been 6 days and no one has called. I'm filled with questions after seeing my results come out online and I feel like I have no one to talk to about them. How do I find a doctor to actually listen and help me?

August 26, 2019 7:00 PM

very comfortable very satisfied well taken care of
