in Naperville, IL |
I could never fully express how traumatic my experience with Dr. Shaw was. I was given Valium and hydrocodone before the surgery and was supposedly numbed prior to surgery with a local anesthetic. After the procedure started, I expressed the fact that I could feel the pain. He told his help to give me another Valium, and continued. I told him I was in 10/10 pain and popped me another Valium, tried giving me more local anesthesia (didn’t wait for it to begin working) and proceeded. I cried.

After returneing to the States from 12 years aboard. Looking for a dr, I tried two other doctors before finding this professional wonderful, caring and very detailed doctor. He makes sure you are satisfied and he is not about the money but more about you. I love Dr. Anil Shah and his wonderful staff.

Dr. Shah is a GIFTED plastic surgeon who cares deeply for his patients. His abilities are unmatched. After reviewing patients' before and after photos by competing plastic surgeons, I was not happy. These doctors left their patients with visible scars, unsatisfactory results and strange looking noses. Dr. Shah gave me a beautiful and natural looking face lift WITHOUT visible scars. My new nose is beautiful. Dr. Shah only works on the face, making him an expert. He and his staff are incredible.

Outstanding physician; I have suffered from rhinophyma since early 30's, he's performed 3 surgeries thus far, the transformation is beyond words, I still have at least one more surgery to go and laser procedures but I am so grateful to Dr. Shah. He professes a deep level of compassion that is very unusual for a physician nowadays. Thank you Dr. Shah

I have been a patient of Dr Shah's since her set up practice in Chicago. He is one of the most skilled plastic surgeons in the midwest, specializing in facial surgery. I have been very pleased with the results of the procedures He has done on me. It also is comforting to know that he has a very pleasant demeanor and makes a patient feel very comfortable during and after procedures.

I am very thankful to my daughter for introducing me to Dr. Shah a year ago. At 70 years old I received my first round of Botox and Filler treatments. I feel Dr. Shah gave me the time to really understand my concerns and answer my list of questions regarding the procedure. He made me feel relaxed and very comfortable while In his care . I'm very happy with his technique and bed side manor and look forward to receiving laser treatments as part of my aging maintenance.
