What People Say About Dr. Adam Shapiro, DPM
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have diabetes and have been a ptient of Dr. Shapiro for 3-4 years now. He has always been very friendly and professional and has my best interest at heart. He has done my diabetic check ups annually, treated a foot injury with multiple fractures and treated my plantar fasciitis. I would recommend him to anyone looking for superior foot care. I am moving out of state and hate that I will no longer be able to see him.

He treats both my husband and me now. I introduced my husband to him four years ago and he has done several very serious operations on his feet. Being diabetic both of us need a great foot doctor and he supercedes all care for us. The treatments that we have required were taken care of immediately and with expert surgery when needed or treated us for fractures, etc. We would certainly refer him to friends and relatives when the need arises for them as well. He can’t be beaten!! Elaine

I did have to wait- but only because they were kind enough to work me into their filled schedule- so I did not mind the wait time at all! Everyone was very courteous and even apologetic for the wait time. Again- I was thrilled and grateful that they were able to see me and help get me out of pain! I highly recommend this office!

Dr. Shapiro was very kind, thorough, and informative in evaluating and explaining my condition, and provided several complimentary courses of treatment to help reduce pain and improve function. As a recent transplant to the Charlotte area, I am grateful to have found him and to have him as my new podiatrist. His staff was proficient, friendly, and empathetic as well.

Dr. Shapiro provided me options other doctors did not provide, and my condition improved as a result. He is trustworthy and credible, and his facilities are up-to-date and clean. His nurses and assistants are personable and professional. I would strongly recommend Dr. Adam Shapiro and his practice.

Dr Shapiro was excellent. He has a quiet manner and took time to explain everything very clearly and made sure I didn’t have any pain. The entire staff were lovely. Efficient but took time to make sure I was comfortable and understood the procedures.
