Turned a bad situation into a positive experience. Explained everything so it was easily understandable. Friendly yet professional.

I was a patient of Dr. Shah's when I broke my finger at work. He is by far my favorite Doctor of all time. I wish he was a family practitioner so that my family could benefit from his expertise. He is really easy to talk to, and listens to what you have to say. With Dr. Shah's expertise I now have a fully functional pinkie finger. Also his staff from the nurses to the therapist are great as well. If you are looking for a hand doctor look no further. Dr. Shah is a gift to his field.
He cured my ailing wrist, Ill keep him on the short list of Dr.s for my family. My golfing friends already know who he is.

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.
