Dr. Shannahan was very helpful. Unfortunately, she clarified that she couldn't be my primary doctor, but that she knew who could help me, the new doctor who is starting this Friday, Dr. [ ]. She and the reception personnel helped me to set up an appoinent with her for next month. Dr. Anna was very personal & professional, which I greatly appreciate.

Dr Shannahan was very professional, kind, and knowledgeable. She was very thorough in her assessment of my daughters issues and she offered up a number of potential reasons and solutions that had never been discussed by other health care providers. She is a very talented physician and I’m so happy she was recommended to us.

Dr Shannahan is great to work with. She listened to my issues, asked questions and helped me to decide on the best course going forward. I have seen 3 other docs for the same issues and she is the first one to not simply treat my "lab results" and dug deeper to understand why I may need different treatment than the "standard protocol" treatment I have been receiving. I feel listened to and have a path forward finally.

too long to get an appt. Also, the first visit as a new patient should not be a phone conversation appointment. I felt undervalued as a patient. Physician cannot visually see my physical problem/condition. Not a solution if the reason is short staffing.

She is a MD who is a great listener, and straight to the point in ordering the next steps (tests, labs, etc). During my telehealth appointment, I felt that we were “on the same page” throughout the entire appointment, which is rare. I have confidence that this doctor will help me heal. Thank you!

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care.

In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
