For me, skill is only part of the equation. In my practice, patients are the entire focus. They deserve my commitment to their needs and outcomes. And they deserve compassion. In fact, compassion is what drives me to offer the kind of individualized, comprehensive and advanced care I would want for my own family members.

What People Say About Dr. Shekhar Dagam, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

After sustaining a neck injury in an automobile accident I went through physical therapy took different medications to eliminate the pain to no avail. My Neurologist ordered an MRI and after review recommended surgery, however, mentioned the potential risks and rewards. Dr. Dagam was highly recommended not only by my Neurologist, but 2 other Physicians I visit regularly. I was convinced after my 1st consult with Dr. Dagam that if I do decide to go forward with surgery he would be the Surgeon to perform it. His approach in explaining the procedure was very pragmatic, void of any pressure or urgency, leaving me to make an informed decision. I also learned that severe shoulder pain I was experiencing, as intense as a previous torn rotator cuff, was most likely from my neck. Waking up from my 5+ hour procedure my shoulder was pain free and my recovery from the very complex surgery was in a fraction of the time he warned me it could be. I'm convinced Dr. Dagam is an extraordinary Surgeon.

Very experienced in Neurosurgery. Dr. Dagam was the 2nd surgeon that I interviewed for my spine issues (losing feeling in, and the use of my legs due to Lumbar stenosis). Interviewed an Orthopedic surgeon initially but did not believe that I needed his recommended Laminectomy PLUS fusion (L3-S1). I interviewed one final neurosurgeon after Dr. Dagam to compare notes. Dr. Dagam was my pick. professional, knowledgable, experienced. 2 1/2 hr surg., 3 day hospital stay, back to work in 8 weeks! ????

Dr. Dagam performed two different surgeries for me this last Fall. He spent time with my husband and myself, patiently explaining both procedures beforehand. Both Dr. Dagam and his staff were exceptionally personable and concerned for my successful recovery. I would highly recommend him to others.

Dr. Dagam gave me my mobility back. After an earlier surgery on my spine that did not do too well with another surgeon, I was skeptical about another surgery which I needed. Dr. Dagam eased my fears and proceeded to perform a flawless surgery from which I am recovering well. His professionalism and manner has impressed me and always keeps me at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Dagam and his staff to anyone and everyone.

Dr. Dagam gave me my life back. Before surgery I was not able to drive, walk, or function. I cannot praise the doctor's surgical skills enough. Follow-ups in the waiting room may leave you time to start writing that book you have in you though.

have had a great experience with his staff. They were great to work with. I felt they really listened to what I had to say and then took care of my problems. Even after my surgery, I still can call for advice and they get back to me right away.

I met Dr. Dagam re: back pain with numbness & tingling. One of the things I liked best about him was he did not try to rush me into surgery & recommended less invasive procedures until I was sure I was ready. I would recommend him highly. The surgery was very successful & my symptoms have disappeared. In addition to his skill, he is also a very kind & caring person making me always feel as though I am his #1 priority. I'm grateful to him & his staff for helping me get back to my normal lifestyl.

Dr. Dagam was one the best doctors I have ever been under the care of. He took time to explain my medical needs making me satisfied with the medical plan we decided on. His bedside manor made me comfortable and confident in his ability. I was very satisfied with my experience. It should also be mentioned that the physician assistants working with him were equally great. The only downfall was the wait time, but I felt the reason was he took time with each patient so it was worth the wait.

I was told exactly what was going to happen with my surgery before and after. I was even given a ride from Milwaukee to Horicon for my surgery. The staff at the surgery suite were very courteous and professional.

At my first appointment accompanied by another person to be an extra "pair of ears" for me, we both were very impressed with the time and patience that Dr. Dagam took in listening to me and explaining what he could do for my stenosis. I felt that I was putting myself into very competent hands.

I cant begin to say enough GREAT things about Dr. Dagam and his staff. From my first consultation I was treated with compassion and professionalism. I was desperate for a solution to my nerve pain due to a pinched nerve and after my surgery I feel like I was given a second chance at life! I am forever grateful to Dr.Dagam and his staff and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone ! Pete Daczka
