Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shapiro "I believe that all patients deserve excellent, thoughtful care, with attention to the latest scientific information, and with shared decision-making between physician and patient. I also believe that a real surgeon is an excellent internist who, in addition, has the ability to operate with great skill when the situation requires. I believe that surgery, while not necessarily the last option, is not always the best option."
