He is the best ! Been a patient since 2001. He has a gift!!!! I had something show up on a pet scan and called his office after not seeing him since 2013 the gave me an appointment for the next day which is unbelievable in its self. He just has a way of making you biggest fears go away ! Love him !!!!

This was the most efficient and kind medical experience I've ever had. Procedure was surgical removal of a large lipoma, and I cannot say enough positive things. Highlights: two office visits were on time, online account was set up in the NYU system allowing complete communication, Dr. Shipiro responded to online questions two times within a day, surgery appointment happened within a week of final office visit, surgery day on time and KIND, minimal scar, painless, EXCELLENT & warm nursing staff.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Shapiro. First, he was on time for my first appointment and my follow up appointment (after surgery) he was EARLY! Second, his "bed side manor" is amazing. He puts you immediately at ease from the moment you walk in. Even on day of surgery he kept me smiling. He is very thorough and speaks to you so you can fully understand your diagnosis and everything that will be happening during surgery. Procedure went great, healing nicely! TRULY THE BEST!!

I had melanoma on my face and my dermatologist recommended Dr. Shapiro as one of the two best plastic surgeons in NYC. Fortunately Dr. Shapiro accepted my insurance. He has really gold hands. My PCP, friends and relative who see me after the surgery all agree that he did an unimaginable job. In addition the office and personal is very nice and efficient and Post Op nurse Ellen Byrwe was above and beyond my expectation. I strongly recommend Dr. Shapiro and his staff for plastic surgery.
I highly recommend Dr. Shapiro to anyone who is going through breast cancer. He has great bed side manner and empathy. He gives thorough explanation of what test and:or exams he's doing and why. Then he tells you all of your options so that you can make an informed decision. He and Dr Nolan Karp (plastic surgeon) are the best tag team ever for my surgery.
