Shannon Li, MD, MS, graduated from the University of Vermont College of Medicine, then completed her residency at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, followed by a fellowship in cardiovascular disease at RUSH University Medical Center.

Li’s care philosophy is to “treat patients as I would treat my own family members and be a good listener. A lot of diagnosis can be made with a good history and physical. I try to find the time to explain the diagnosis and any pertinent treatment plan and diagnostic tests because I think it goes a long way and helps me to establish rapport with my patients.”
