I drove 25 miles to see Dr. Shapiro!
Dr. Shapiro treated me years ago so when I began having serious problems in both feet and ankles which include inflammation, pain, and plantar fasciitis, I knew it was worth the long drive to see him again. I was not disappointed. From the x-ray technician, to his assistant, to the doctor himself, the staff is always professional, helpful, and compassionate. I highly recommend this practice and Dr. Shapiro.

Amazing Doctor
I am new to NC and had an ingown toenail that was extremely painful. I got an appointment with Dr Shapiro in approximately two and a half weeks which was amazing. He quickly diagnosed my issues and skillfully preformed a procedure while I was there. No more pain!! He is very caring and really listened. He also offered lots of resources. His office staff and assistants were very competent and caring as well! They thoroughly explained my follow up care at home. I am thrilled to have found such an amazing doctor. I highly recommend him!

Great podiatrist
Dr.Shapiro is treating me for plantar fasciitis. He is extremely friendly and I feel he generally cares. Not all doctors listen to you when you talk but he does.
