It was a great experience meeting Dr. Samir Shah and his staff! I just booked my surgery and I'm so excited to see the new me! :)

New to the Chicago area, I selected Dr. Shah on-line. His manner is most pleasing yet professional; I was confident I would be comfortable having him perform surgery. The procedure was to correct a trigger thumb exacerbated by a sizeable cyst requiring removal. Dr. Shah promptly had me scheduled, outlined what he would be doing and, while I observed under local anesthesia, did a superb job. My thumb functioned normally at once & was effectively healed within two weeks. I recommend him highly.

Recently, I had filler injections at A New You Plastic Surgery and Laser Center. Dr. Samir Shah is very professional and does his job well. The staff is courteous, as they make you feel relaxed and at home. The outcome is remarkable, and I can see the difference that helps me to feel confident. I can't wait to go back for future procedures. I highly recommend Dr. Samir Shah to anyone seeking to refresh their appearance.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Shah says...

The most important aspect is to build a trusting relationship with my patients and provide honest treatment advice. It's a partnership that we enter together and I want to make sure their journey through their treatment course goes smoothly.

I have a diverse practice which includes reconstructive surgery which primarily focuses on hand and skin cancer.

In addition, I treat patients with aesthetic concerns and can provide multiple options for rejuventation.
