I have had both knees replaced by Dr. Shapiro and both are strong and healthy. I will recommend him without any reservation.
twin falls, id |
Great experience. Dr. Shapiro was very knowledgeable and thorough through the entire exam. His recommendations had many different options and worked immediately to help me feel better.
in Hailey, ID |
Shoulder Surgery - So far so good. Still in the rehab phase - PT.
Nampa, ID |
Dr. Shapiro took time to tell me about all of my options. I truly appreciated the fact that he answered my questions in a way that I could understand.

I broke my arm in February in Hailey, Idaho. It required plates and screws. This was the first broken bone I have ever experienced. My son took me to Dr. Shapiro's office, where he took xrays and determined the course of surgery with precision and care. The following morning he did surgery. The staff was kind, concerned and xrays were taken to verify bone healing. He always showed the utmost of concern and his caring showed in each of my appointments. It was a total success!!!
Hailey, ID |
Dr. Shapiro and Vicki have helped me above and beyond through my injury. My situation being a workers comp. case, they filed all of the assessments, paperwork and billings for me. This kind of help during a stressful and painful time is priceless. Although I do not need surgery, they continue to advocate for me and make sure I am getting therapies I need.
in West Magic Id |
I appreciate you, Dr., and your office staff. I feel your concern and I feel like you care for me and my med. problem. I ACTUALLY FEEL LOVED. It doesn't get any better than that!
in Carey, Idaho |
I do not have enough positive to say about Dr. Shapiro. My surgery, care and aftercare met the highest standards, my recovery time was amazing to me, and a year later, I am able to do everything with my right shoulder as I am my left. I had put off having this surgery done because of the fear I had and nightmares I had heard about, but I will assure anyone, had I known the outcome, I would have done it much sooner. I will undoubtedly use Dr. Shapiro for any future orthopedic procedures.
in Twin Falls |
Dr. Shapiro did a very thorough exam and was able to isolate the problem. He also explained his findings clearly and went over a treatment plan.
in Ketchum, ID |
From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted with friendly, knowledgeable staff, who make you feel comfortable, and important. Dr. Shapiro, is extremely well knowledged and open to all questions or concerns; and always answers them in clear, understandable terms. He truly focuses on you; and never makes you feel like he needs to rush to the next patient (very rare these days). I always leave his office feeling like I am already healing from his procedures.
in Meridian, ID |

Good first visit with Dr. Shapiro today. Everything was conducted in a good manner and appreciated his thoroughness. Wish he would have spent a little more time with me.
in Bellevue, ID |
I feel very lucky to have been recommended to Dr. Shapiro from the ER Doc after injury. Not only very skillful/ thorough, but quite fun to chat with about : injury lifestyle and prognosis at follow up. Of course I would highly recommend! Thanks Glen.
in Boise, ID |
Dr Shapiro, is an outstanding physician. My family and I have seen Dr Shapiro from everything from back pain to a broken ankle. He is knowledgeable, informative, and kind. He takes time to explain everything and answer all your questions. He does not talk over kids to a parent, he speaks to them as well as the parent to ensure they understand their care and why this treatment is appropriate for the injury. My family would not think of using anyone but Dr Shapiro for orthopedic needs.
Boise, ID |
Dr. Shapiro is a Dr. with a heart< and always take's the time for his patient's. I have been a patient of Dr. Shapiro for several year's, and trust him with all my heart. Not always telling you what you want to hear, but what it is. And always give's you the best advise for your condition.
Hailey, ID |
Dr. Glen explains the issue and solution in plain English so it is easy to understand. My experience with both the prognosis and solution has been excellent.
in Ketchum, ID |
Dr. Shapiro was very kind, thorough and friendly. He was responsive in a timely fashion and came in to the office on his time off to see me. He was concerned and caring.
in Hailey, ID |
Dr. Shapiro and his amazing staff are diligent, thorough, prompt, intuitive and very personable. Everyone in his staff, including Dr. Shapiro himself, of course, far exceeded my expectations during my visit. The nurse noticed that my blood pressure was high and immediately contacted my personal care physician to dialogue and follow-up about her findings. This is Healthcare WORKING! Great job all around!! Cannot recommend enough Dr. Shapiro and his staff. A+ !!
in Twin Falls |
Very knowledgeable and friendly. I had a great experience.
in Twin Falls, ID |
We often joke in our family that most people have a family physician. We have a family orthopedist. Whenever we have needed his services, he is always professional, caring and conservative in his care. He listens to his patients and does not perform unnecessary surgery. He always takes the time to listen. I recently had my knee replaced. His wife, Vicki coordinated everything. I know I can reach them by phone, text or e-mail. I always get a quick response and quality care.
in Sun Valley, ID |
i have worked with a lot of providers Dr. Shapiro has a great bedside manner he has a great sense of humor and he tells you how it is anyone looking for a orthopedic specialist should contact his office first.
in Hailey, Idaho |
He was upfront about my situation, Told me exactly what he would do and what I could expect. I had my left shoulder repaired about 9 years ago and I feel I am farther ahead with my right shoulder, which Dr Shapiro did.
in Ketchum, ID |
Dr. Shapiro saw my son for an injury he suffered from falling down on the ice. He was extremely kind and intelligent. He did the x-rays right in his office which saved us a bundle! In and out with x-rays, diagnosis and a splint was at most 35 minutes. Best experience with a physician caring for a physical injury we've ever encountered. Office very clean, staff very kind and accommodating. Basically A+ all around.
in twin falls |
He is caring and keeps track of you. He does a good job and follow up.
in Bellevue Idaho |
Outstanding care and treatment
Hailey, ID |
This office is small, so friendly, and down to earth, with not a lot of extraneous furnishings for "show". All the work, xrays, reading them, shots, etc. are done in house, which I really like! The Dr. explains things so thoroughly, reviews all the options, and listens to all questions easily. You don't feel stupid asking them, either. He spent a lot of time with me compared to other doctors I have been with. I didn't feel rushed. Already I feel confident in the course of action suggested.
in Hailey Idaho |
excellent communication between Dr. and patient. Fully understood the problem.
in Shoshone, ID |
Dr. Shapiro listened to my concerns and answered my questions. I am very impressed that I am called by name upon entering the door. Everyone in the office made me feel important and that they appreciated me and that I was important.
in Wendell,ID. |
Was kind and understand I needed to be send by a professional. They took me in right a way and the receptionist was very knowledgeable and caring. The exam was right to the point and I would recommend him to anyone. One the the Best in his field. Thank you so much. Made me fell like a family member with a Hugh heart.
in Hailey, ID |
Dr Shapiro is a nice guy who always explains the details of your circumstance in a very understandable manner. He is also generally right about his diagnosis and course of treatment. His office and staff are particularly patient friendly. I have already recommended him on many occasions and will continue to do so
in Hailey, ID |
From the beginning I had the feeling he put what he felt was the best treatment for my injury ahead of how much money he could make. He listens to my input and our communication is excellent. I feel fortunate to have him for my Dr.
in Sun Valley, Idaho |
I found Dr. Shapiro very competent and caring and also concerned about minimizing costs to the extent consistent with good care.

I had one of the best experiences ever with Dr. Shapiro. I was able to get an appointment the next day. He is very personable and not at all aloof. Best bedside manner ever. He listens very closely and explained the diagnosis of my rotator cuff damage very well. He spent as much time with me as l needed. I highly recommend him.
