Doctor Eric Shapiro's quiet confidence was apparent to me upon my first meeting with him. It turns out he IS THE REAL DEAL... From the beginning of the shoulder surgery to the extensive rehab, I am seeing my steady improvement and success. His PT department with Shari and her bandits at the helm are top notch and instrumental in my recovery. This savvy office as a whole is most cohesive...each staff member is cognizant of their crucial role which results in a smooth "operation!" The consistency and continuity of care reveals itself to be 5 STAR. It runs at an efficient pace with an organized rhythm. Having a medical background , I consider myself to be a reliable judge of surgical MD choices. This is an excellent professional and caring crowd. Doctor Shapiro is clinically astute and his skills are impeccable....an 11 out of 10. Judy Fogel RDN,MS Boca Raton,FL and Great Neck, NY

I had a complete tear, rotator cuff, and I needed a surgeon with the skill and experience to attempt to repair it. Dr. Shapiro came highly recommended by several people at my gym and friends in the sports community-and they were right. He is outstanding. He repaired the tear, which was massive, was attentive and professional throughout the process and therapy and cares about his patients. Everyone that I know that used him for their surgery had very positive results.

With a serious ankle injury prior to moving here, I wanted the best orthopedic doctor I could find. A retired Head of Radiology recommended Dr. Shapiro to me in 2002. Never dreaming I would have so many problems, he has treated me for 2 torn minicus, massive rotator cuff surgery, partial hip replacement, etc. He is the best diagnostician in the area and has treated many of my friends and family. He is never quick to recommend surgery I can't say enough positive about him professionally.

Dr. Shapiro has been my Dr. for a very long time. I have been seeing him for my knee. He is an excellent Dr. and I trust him with my life. If I need another type of Dr. I go to him for his recommendation. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Shapiro's Office is out of control, employees do not communicate with patients in the right way, causing patients to work and additional and unnecessary expenses, so that they can do a ser- vice, requires a lot of work and a lot of waiting for their secretaries communicate with patients and never respond to more message left concerning any surgery not recommend it for anything.

Dr. Shapiro did a great job of explaining my rotator cuff injury to me. He did a good job with the surgery, although it was more painful than I expected. His therapist, Sherry, had no idea what she was doing. She was more interested in talking and working on the computer than actually doing therapy. Tony did a much better job. AVOID SHERRY. I progressed much better after I switched therapy places. Overall Dr. Shapiro did a great job with me and I would go back.

Dr. Shapiro is the best surgeon around. We are originally from Boston,MA and have very high expectations when it comes to medical care , Dr. Shapiro has exceeded every single expectation ! He takes his time to make sure his patients are comfortable and educated every step of the way . My husband underwent knee surgery after several tries with others and Dr. Shapiro has given him relief ! He truly cares about his patients , we can't say enough about him!!
