    in Winnetka, IL |
    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.
