Dr. Shukairy's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Shukairy "I grew up in Michigan, outside of Detroit. After completing my undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan, I moved to Toledo for medical school. I was able to go back home to Michigan for my residency training in brain and spinal surgery (neurosurgery). In my fellowship training I was able to gain a unique perspective, training with orthopedic surgeons and learning about deformity surgery. I stayed in the Chicago area after my fellowship at Rush University was completed."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shukairy "To provide the best and most updated information on the patient's condition, treatment options, and how surgery can potentially help her or him. And then, should surgery be necessary, provide the best and most compassionate care possible.

"First, do no harm" is the fundamental principle in medicine, and more so in surgery. So I strive to give my patients all the information they need to decide about surgery, including minimally invasive options."

I have no doubt that Dr. Shukairy is an excellent nuerosurgeon. However, if I hadn't read so and heard likewise, based on a visit I had in which I had some questions regarding the administering of my mother's medications, and was hopeful for any advice. I would have to say, I have never dealt with...more

Dr. Shukairy was very quick and thorough. He got straight to the point and was polite. He performed my husbands surgery and did an amazing job. Although we only saw him once in the hospital, he oversaw my husbands care through other doctors and made sure he was well taken care of.

He is one of the worst doctors ever!! Refuse to see me after I was assigned to him in the hospital. Improperly diagnose me, he has a s***** bedside manner. He has WAAAY to many patients to see. When I did see him after complaining his excuse was that he has 500 patients and can't see everyone!!
