If you are looking for an excellent Oncologist, your search could be over now. In the short time we have been under Dr. Shakir's care we have realized that this doctor is quite possibly the best in Central Illinois and beyond. His ability to provide excellent quality of care will amaze you, and (like us) you will thank God that such a doctor really exists. His staff and the Sarah Bush Lincoln Regional Cancer Center is beyond compare too.

Just like with pretty much the entire staff at Sarah bush Lincoln, dr shakir has been very good. He makes his rounds every morning checking in with every patient. He shows competency and honesty. I know with my Dx when was explaining it he was detailed, open, honest, and thankfully didn't try to sugar coat things. Maybe that's cuz he knew i had already done my research and basically knew what to expect but still it was nice to experience such honesty.
