At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
Attentive (when you get get to her) and very knowledgeable. She's quite kind and caringI just don't like having to answer the same questions over and over. Health care today stinks in general. Too much bureaucracy to get to your Dr.
I cannot say enough how much Dr. Shanker-Patel cares for her patients. She is so thoughtful, and never rushes. She listens to ALL your concerns, never passes judgment and offers encouragement and amazing supportive health care.
Dr. Shanker-Patel was very thorough and took the time to explain the different medication options, in addition to the tests ordered. She also provided my follow-up items after our appointment which I very much appreciated!
Love the MyChart and that the doctors across the hospital use that to coordinate care and review patient history. Saves time not to keep repeating the same information to different treating physicians.
We LOVE her!!!! She is the best dr we have ever seen!!!! I would not want my son to see anyone else!!! She is all about the patients and listens to the parents questions and listens actively! We never feel rushed with her!! I recommend her to everyone!!
Doctor is a real person, we have mutual respect for options. She is open to other options of than just a pill. She carefully explains why on medication or what is working giving me options to reach ours agreed goals for my health.
I was asked on three separate pre-screening questions. I'm not sure if they put that in the system. I understand needing to ask once we are in office (due to COVID), but to ask multiple times prior seems unnecessary.
Dr. Shankar-Patel treats me with integrity and kindness, she addresses all my concerns with a smile and is personable when reviewing my medical history and symptoms. Front desk is friendly, medical assistances kind and validated my abnormal vital signs!
She will do above and beyond to take care of her patients. It is very obvious how she care about her patient's wellness.. and that's how I feel whenever I see her for an office visit. She is not there just because she is the primary provider, she is there to care and to keep her patients healthy.
Office staff are kind and helpful. Nurses are personable, detailed and professional. Dr. Shanker-Patel gives you 100% attention. You never feel rushed. She is light hearted, very informative and genuinely interested in making sure you are fully satisfied and makes sure she has fully answered your questions.
She concentrate on you, And give you her medical opinion Not to make money out of it but the best of your interests With all the suggestions and options available to you and what is your insurance can cover and what not to cover and she goes around it to make sure that she take care of you the best as you knows how
I like Northwestern Medicine because all my records for all my doctors are kept in one place and accessible by all my doctors and me. I also like being able to email my doctors with questions. .I'm happy I chose Dr Shanker-Patel as my Primary doctor. She's organized, friendly, spends time answering my questions.
Dr. Shanker-Patel is very supportive, thorough and willing to take the time to hear concerns and really address them in a way that is helpful to her patients. She takes the time to develop a good relationship and that leads to excellent outcomes.
