About Shannon E. Harris:

“I love being able to care for women in all stages of their lives and problem solving health care concerns.”

I didn’t grow up wanting to be a physician, but I certainly had an interest in the birthing process at an early age. Growing up on a farm, I was always eager to help Dad in the barn at lambing time. As early as 5, I was helping bring new wooly lives into the world. I was also a constant companion to the vet when he paid a visit, eager to learn about anatomy and diseases.

Later my interest in biology and chemistry at Iowa State University led me to medical school at the University of Iowa, where I quickly realized how much I felt drawn to women’s care, childbirth and surgery. My tour of the Midwest during my training next led me to residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, where in addition to many late nights delivering babies, I gained a new appreciation for beer and cheese, Lake Michigan, and summers chock full of festivals.

I can’t think of a better way to grow up than on a farm in southwest Iowa, but as a young adult I turned into a city girl pretty quickly. Moving to Minneapolis after residency was a perfect fit for me. I live in the Highland Park neighborhood of St. Paul, and look forward to dinners out in the neighborhood, weekend mornings at the farmers market, walks and dog park trips with my Great Dane, and just hanging out with a good book by the fire. If I’m not out and about in my neighborhood, it might be because I’m home cooking a new recipe to try out on the girls’ Supper Club, off SCUBA diving or wandering around the North Shore.

Over the past 14 years here in the northwest suburbs, I have enjoyed getting to know my patients better each year — catching up on their kids’ activities, the last summer vacation, and what new adventure is next in their lives. I love being able to care for women at all stages in their lives, but my main areas of interest include adolescent medicine, high risk obstetrics, vulvar and vaginal diseases, minimally invasive surgery and office procedures.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Always personable, friendly, helpful.

Gynecological Problem Visit

Dr. Harris is so great. She explains everything she's doing, why and what to expect afterward. She answers all of my questions and doesn't make me feel like she's rushing to get to the next patient.

Post-Partum Appointment

I love the staff at Oakdale OBGYN!

Annual Well Woman Exam

They were fast, efficient and very helpful in calming my anxieties.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Pleasant environment, very short wait... Friendly staff.

New Patient Visit

The doctor took her time, learned in details my medical history, listened to my concerns and suggested a care plan.

Annual Well Woman Exam

I would say 5 Highly Satisfied but was disappointed to learn they closed the facility on 81 in Crystal. So the closest location now is Maple Grove. But I will follow Dr Shannon Harris wherever she goes. She is great at her job. I feel very comfortable with her. She is patient, always listens, is able to answer all of my questions and concerns, I never feel rushed.

Obstetrical Ultrasound

Dr. Harris went the extra step to follow her instincts and had me get an extra ultrasound- which found some fluid in the baby that we wouldn't have seen. Also, while I was processing the hard information she had the nurses come into the room to draw blood instead of sending me to the blood drawing section of the office.
