Patient Comments (2)
in Emory, TX |
Met this fine Cardiologist 7 years ago. He was patient and explained why I should take this medication and do this procedure to treat my Afib. I rejected all meds suggested as well as the recommended Pace Maker installation but Adam stayed calm and respected my wishes. Finally about 5 years ago I took his advice and he install a PM. This guy is an amazing electrophysiologist: Explained what had to be done,In and out in 1 day, Now 5 years later he has performed the AV node ablation.Doing Great!

Dr Shapira is an amazing physician. He had excellent staff and great bedside manner. He made me feel at ease about my procedure and I trusted him completely. I had suffered my entire life with my heart condition and he fixed it and I'm able to live life to the fullest now.
