What People Say About Dr. Abdur Shakir, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

We were told we had just a IRON problem by a doctor in Champaign at there cancer center. The doctor kept giving us IRON saying we were anemic and making a lot of money I am sure. So I took my mother to Dr Shakir after reaching out to a friend at Northwestern and thankfully we did this. He immediately looked at her case and stated she needed a bone marrow biopsy. He did it the same day and she did not have an IRON problem but had a bone marrow problem called MPD. He started her on a medication and since then no IRON, and she is now able to eat. I went back to the other Doctor with my mom as Dr Shakir is just so busy and we travel from far, and he just shrugged his shoulders and said this common and we would have asked him he would have done the bone marrow.

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.
