When my mom needed a new primary care physician, I placed her with Dr. Shapiro. When she passed in the hospital, he called to offer his condolences. I thought that was extra special. He's been my doctor for at least 20 years or more. I'm pleased with my care!

My previous doctor moved from the practice. I chose Dr. Shapiro because I had seen him previously many years ago as replacement of my dr. on vacation. I was upset because two doctors had left in the past 3 years, the office wanted me to see Dr. Shapiro to establish rapport with my new doctor, they had said it was going to be 15 minutes. Instead, the doctor took his time to really get to know my health issues.

Great dr. He has been my provider for 25 yrs. I think he is the best.

10/11/2017
He usually orders blood tests for chronic conditions at the time I come for follow-ups. This time I suggested I get the labs done before the visit so the information would be available when I see him, and he agreed. This should be standard procedure for all your providers, to make our time spent with them more productive.

08/02/2017
I was told to be at the office 15 minutes prior to my appointment and ended up waiting over 45 minutes past my actual appointment time. Eventually, I was told the Doctor was just finishing up and that his previous appointment went over. How can an appointment go over by more than 45 minutes? I had a quick consult and was told I needed to schedule another appointment to come back for the procedure, [...] which is ridiculous. He should have known what I was coming to see him for, been on time and had time slated for any possible procedures, considering we are talking about a simple biopsy here. I am very frustrated with this whole experience.
