I cannot praise Dr. Shapiro enough! I have had two surgeries and with both I healed with no issues at all. You can hardly see where incisions are. His care is excellent, taking the time to answer all questions and inform me of things I may need to know. I would definitely refer Dr. Shapiro to anyone seeking orthopedic care.

Dr Shapiro is a pro with experience and bed side manor. In 2014 I had both my wrists operated on for carpal tunnel. Five years Iater there still is no pain. Today I went to see him about kneck and shoulder pain. I had seen a kneck specialist in Boise who told me I would have to suffer with pain the rest of my life. Dr. Shapiro gave me his evaluation and a few other referals for more options.

Dr. Shapiro diagnosed a serious injury that no doctor had yet identified with respect to my granddaughter. She needed surgery, but no doctor she had seen diagnosed her Lisfranc syndrome. She had subsequent surgery and an excellent recovery. But for the diagnosis she would have suffered continuing deterioration and the possible necrosis of tendon tissue in her foot.

My experience with Dr. Shapiro was fantastic. Through a minimally invasive procedure, he relieved my knee pain and allowed me to get back to the things I enjoy most. Thanks for everything Doc!

Dr Shapiro is very kind and will listen to you with all his heart, and then will explain to you in detail what is wrong with you and explain his procedure step by step until you understand what he is going to do and why he is doing it that way. He does not rush you through your appointment he will sit there until everything is said and understood

Glenn Shapiro cares for many friends and most importantly, me and my family. He has performed surgery on both my daughter and myself with excellent outcome. Most importantly for me, he is present and in the moment when I am seeking care. He is also an educator, which gives one great comfort when medical issues arise. His staff and beyond accessible, both by phone and e mail and everyone in the office practices together in a genuinely satisfying manner. Easy access to to Glenn is a bonus!

I was traveling through and in the ER at 7:00 p.m. and he saw me at 10:30 the next am for a cast. He was so kind, accommodating and thorough in my exam and in explaining my options. I would recommend him to anyone who wanted a skilled dr. with excellent bedside manner.

I brought my best friend to Dr. Shapiro after an evening ER x-ray revealed a broken bone in her hand, the result of a fall hiking. Because we were passing through the area, he made time for her early the next day. His thoughtful and gentle care, attention to detail as he explained treatment options , and easygoing manner helped make this unexpected vacation injury easier to manage. To say that both Dr. Shapiro and his helpful staff were a blessing is an understatement.

After 100+ days of skiing, my knees were feeling the strain of all that fun. I had Dr. Shapiro do PRP shots in each knee April 19. PRP isn't one of those instant pain relief cures. It can take a month or more before you realize nothing is hurting anymore. That is where I am now. Both knees are so great; no more discomfort climbing stairs, hiking or running. I believe the body has an amazing capacity to heal itself, but it often needs the help of someone with Dr. Shapiro's expertise to help it.
