Extremely unlikely. He overlooked an enlarged thyroid with multiple, large nodules. Rudely walked out during my time with him, and lectured about the structure of the inner ear and told me to work through the vertigo. Very uncomfortable and frustrating healthcare experience.

Dr. Shapiro operated on my sinuses in 2010 when my passageways needed some enlarging and again in 2017 when I had a fungal sinus infection that was not completely responding to in-office cleanings. He is very capable and thorough, clearly explaining the diagnosis, treatment, and post-op care. He is always on time with appointments, and it is simple to schedule appointments. I love that a person always answers the phone (during office hours) and that his capable staff is professional yet person

He is the most careless and rude doctor I have encountered. He doesn’t pay attention to what your concerns are and quickly will advise some testing that usually are not paid by the insurance. After two experiences with this doctor I DO NOT recommend him at all in any situation.
