    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.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
