Sarah Shah, MD



Getting to know my patients on a personal level, and being able to learn from my patients in the process, is equally as rewarding as assisting them to heal or recover.


Sarah Shah, MD

Psychiatry in her opinion unlike other medical fields is science combined with art. She enjoys the ability to combine the two while providing patient individualized care.

Dr. Shah became a psychiatrist to help promote the destigmatization of mental health. From her own personal experience, she feels the stigma associated with mental health care is unfortunately also prevalent within the medical community itself, which prevents most healthcare providers from even recognizing the importance of mental well-being.

Specific areas of interest include ADHD treatment, Women’s/Maternal Mental Health, Sociocultural Aspects of Psychiatry, Global Mental Health Issues.

Dr. Sarah Shah is a Board-Certified Psychiatrist, a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Inc., and a member of the American Board of Medical Specialties. She was born and raised in Effingham, Illinois. However, wanting to experience more of her family of origin’s culture and country, she decided to pursue medicine abroad, earning her medical degree from Rawalpindi Medical College, Pakistan. She completed her residency at the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield, Illinois.

Sarah Shah, MD

Doctor shah is an incredible doctor. She is calm and listens to everything and actually hears what I am saying. She explains the risks and side effects of every medication and is open to my input. She doesn't talk down to me like other psychiatrists I've had in the past. I even followed her here from her last practice even though it is in a far less convenient location. I highly recommend Dr shah if you want a psychiatrist who will listen and provide you with good feedback and advice rather than a list of meds and send you on your way. She also is very thorough going through your old medical records.

Always a pleasure to be able to work with Dr. S.! She s fantastic, patient care oriented and very tuned to the patients concerns.

Dr. Shah makes you feel like you matter. I was at easy as soon as I started talking with her, and she has been providing me excellent care.
