Harry Leopold Sarasota Dr. Shapiro did a full ruptured tendon repair....and said at some point I could get back to 80%-90% of my tennis game....I'm back to 100%...thanks to Dr. Shapiro's great work! He really cares.....

Dr. Schapiro is the most coldhearted and unfeeling physician I have ever met. I don't think he has a drop of human kindness in his entire being. He took an x-ray and dismissed my concerns saying is nothing there and practically threw me out of his practice. All the while, he was just playing with his dog. I don't even see how a MD can even have a dog in a medical the facility. Dr. Schapiro should've been a pathologist with the level of empathy that he shows.

Fantastic! He told me what to expect and it was nice to know in advance. He encouraged me to do physical therapy and get my flexibility to 120 degrees to avoid future problems. He is friendly and cordial as well as the whole staff.

Dr. Shapiro was amazing. I had fractures on both sides of my ankle and am now walking normally!
in Sarasota, FL |
Dr. Shapiro is by far the best when it comes to realistic treatment and outcomes. No witches brew treatments or unproven techniques. He is conservative and goes with what works. Outcomes in my case has been better than expected. For me over the past 15 years two knee scopes, ACL repair, Rota-tor cuff repair and now, Achilles tendon repair. Body by Shapiro : 0

Dr Shapiro has been excellent. This is the second time I have been treated by him. Both times he has taken the time to thoroughly explain the condition with my hands and the procedure to correct it. He is a first class physician with a fantastic support team behind. His assistant Gabby was very knowledgable and put my mind at ease about the surgery.

Excellent I would recommend him very highly
in Sarasota, FL |
I have been to Dr. Shapiro for shoulder and knee injuries and he was very informative and friendly. I ended up needing an ACL replacement, which 2 years later still feels amazing. I have recommend him to plenty of friends.
Parrish, FL |
I expected Dr Shapiro to take time and explained my options other than ' you need a knee replacement after showing me the X-rays. I asked partial? he said no Total .' I said I have to talk to my husband . He did not even mention about injections .It was I who initiated the question when he was opening the door to walk out. I would say the time he spent with me may be 10 minutes, did not explain the reason why I truly need the surgery and for a new patient, I think that's not right.
