Dr. Shair grew up in Lake Zurich, Illinois and for as long as she can remember she has wanted to be a doctor. She loves interacting with people and she loves helping them.
“I think of my patients as a whole, not just as the problem they come to see me for,” Dr. Shair said. “I like to think that I am thorough and compassionate. I like to get to know my patients. I listen to their concerns, answer their questions and work with them to find solutions.”
It was during her third year as a medical student that Dr. Shair made the decision to pursue pediatrics as a specialty.
“When I did a pediatric rotation as a student it just felt right and I knew it was what I wanted to do,” she said.
Dr. Shair is married and has three children. In her free time she likes to travel, exercise, read and crochet.
