I have the utmost respect for Dr. Manoj Shah. His honesty, wonderful care, concern and special gifts are a "gift from God" to me. He is a living testimony to the mission statement of Advocate Lutheran General. He has gone beyond the call of duty to help pull together a new medical team for me. This new medical team is amazing and truly dedicated to helping me on so many levels. God Bless You, Dr. Manoj Shah and all those medical professionals you have brought into my life! Thank you for helping me and so many others. You are so loved by so many.

I think this is the best provider/surgeon (Dr. Shah) that Advocate Medical Group has. He was extremely honest with me, professional, didn't want to do surgery on me for my gallbladder because he did not think that would help me in my case, and in the end, he was 100% correct. He took his time with me, answered all my questions, drew diagrams and always had eye contact with me. He was extremely respectful to me, and I didn't feel like I was rushed; the opposite, made me feel welcome and like I was his only patient (even though I know he has a lot of patients) I wish that all AMG provider were this wonderful. His consultation meant a great deal to me, and he studied my case and knew everything before I came in for the visit. Dr. Shah is one of a kind.
