I have seen Dr. Shapiro in the past for elbow and shoulder problems and have always had great confidence in him. He is clear and straightforward in his communications about the diagnosis, treatment options and post-op instructions. He just did rotator cuff surgery on me 7 weeks ago and all is well...more
