The most unorganized staff EVER! They have no idea what they are doing! They lie about any and everything! Dr. Shapiro acts as if he has no time to listen because he is trying to see too many patients in one day. You will be in the office for hours! He has no sympathy or compassion for his patients. He lacks understanding, shows no empathy and just wants you out of his office. All he wants is his money and for you not to question him.

I had back trouble for years. After a Bad Chiropractic Visit my PCP sent me to see Carl . A few tests, pics and and MRI. He found the problem and it was fixed after a simple surgery. About a year later he and his staff. Treated me for Pain Management after a Battle with Esophageal Cancer! He and Sean are Awesome and both are very Careing Doctors! I’m no longer in pain management and doing well thanks to their care!
