I have always felt that I was blessed to find Dr Shashi. Beyond his skills as an excellent surgeon, his kindness and caring are remarkable. Example, the morning after my surgery he entered my room and asked me why I had not eaten. I told him that they left my meal on a table out of my reach. He propped me up in bed and then moved the bedside table in front of me. During each office visit, he gives me all the time I need to discuss my health.

Dr. Shashi is the best, I was very comfortable with him from the beginning of my appointments, after surgery and during my last colonoscopy. I am told his is one of the best and he certainly has my vote of confidence. I felt very well cared for and had a quick recovery, he takes the time to explain everything you need to know prior to surgery and after. We have recommended him to another patient that had her surgery by another surgeon and was having difficulties. She was pleased with his advice.

Dr. Shashidharan is AMAZING! He went above and beyond to care for my father who is 78 years old and had stage 3 colon cancer. He spent an entire day and evening in the operating room to make sure everything possible was done correctly. I can't praise him enough. He really does care about his patients and you can tell he likes what he does. Many people told us he was the best in the nation and we are so blessed to have him in the Midwest.
