Dr. Shapiro is fantastic. I had reoccurring ear infections and my eustachian tube didn't work properly. Dr. Shapiro put tubes in my ears and it worked great. I was in and out of the office in less than 30mins. A great no-nonsense doctor.

I have never felt so gaslit or dismissed in my entire life. I came in with debilitating symptoms of 6+ years and he told me it was just light headed ness, that he couldn’t help me, within 5 minutes of meeting me. He tried to write off my symptoms with various excuses and when I asked questions I was met with shrugs. He asked if I had allergies, I said no, and he blamed it on allergies anyway. I left his office in tears.

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.
