Dr Shapiro was so excellent I came back to him a second time. He made the whole process bearable and is very good at what he does. I highly recommend him.

If you are in need of a surgeon look no further you will have the best! Dr. Shapiro was my surgeon and save my life! YES he save my life and I'm forever thankful to him. He performed an emergency laparotomy with bowel section and drained a massive bilateral pleural effusion as I had a complication from a previous surgery by a different physician. He was attentive and paid attention to my issues, supported me and my husband along the way both pre-and post op. You will be in the hands of the best

Dr. Shapiro saved my life during a 6 hour surgery at JFK Medical Center. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any surgical problems you may have.. He is beyond awesome! During the past 5 years he has helped me and my husband deal with other surgical problems. God Bless you Dr. Shapiro!

Dr. Shapiro performed a right lower inguinal hernia repair 3 weeks ago. The entire process was flawless from the first office visit until the post op appointment. He used the robotic method which was far less invasive, and resulted in minimal post operative pain. The operation was an outpatient procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Shapiro for any pending surgery you may have.

Dr. Shapiro is a very compassionate and awesome surgeon. In my time of scare and nervousness he took the time out to answer all my questions and never sugarcoated anything. He was patient and took the time out to address all my concerns. Thank you very much Dr. Shapiro!!!

Not the Dr. or the practice you want to involve yourself with. I was referred by my Dr. for a muscle biopsy. Don't want to bore you with the details, but had to wait almost two weeks for an appt., then the surgery and anesthesia is scheduled for 3/29 at 8:30 and he is a no show. I had him called at 11:10, and the response was that he would be here in 10, and I could leave if I want to. After laying in the prep area under a blanket with an IV I had them remove the IV and I left at 12:00.

I had to have hernia surgery . He did an excellent job, gave me all the facts and reasons why I should do this procedure now. Had some post operative pain but am on the mend now after about 2 weeks. I certainly would recommend him to family and friends

His office is quite busy, however, when he is in the room with you - it is all about you. He is a nice Doctor and seeing how many patients he has every time in his office makes me thinks that he has a great reputation. Recommend!
in Boynton Beach, FL |
Dr. Shapiro is an outstanding surgeon. I am convinced that he provided the best possible care for me. Prior to the surgery, he spent the time to explain to me what was involved. After the procedure, he updated my care giver in a very informative and positive manner. Because of his expertise, my surgery went very well and I suffered no ill effects. He is a Great Doctor! In addition, his office staff is very professional and personable.
