Not at all. Wrote an inaccurate report of visit and made an erroneous statement which seems impossible and difficult to amend. Does not listen or hear what i said at all. Wrote down two diagnosis which are totally inaccurate and false and ridiculous yet they are part of my medical history even though I have never been diagnosed with either one.

One of the best surgeons in the country. I was in excellent hands at a time of crisis.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Shapiro to anyone who asked! I had two failed back to back lumbar surgeries by a different surgeon. Dr. Shapiro was able to determine why they failed and do a third surgery to correct the botched surgeries. I also had symptoms of a more serious nature with my arm and neck and ended up having to have cervical surgery 2 weeks later due to several ruptured cervical discs. I could have ended up not being able to walk. He was very professional and good bedside manner

Seems nervous. Does not address my whole issue. Seems more interested in relieving pain than dealing with the problem causing the pain.
