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!

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.
