    Dr. Shaposhnikov is pleasant beyond what you can imagine. What I had been trying to get fixed since 2011, she remedied in 20 minutes. REALLY! She is very knowledgeable and I would HIGHLY recommend her. Side note: Don’t even think about having even a tiny bit of a hash brown before a colonoscopy. ;) SBM

    If you need a prescription for the latest and greatest PPI medication Dr Shaposhnikov is your best choice. In case your looking for a diagnosis, and a real treatment look somewhere else.

    She prescribed a medication for a problem I did not have, a medication that injured my rectum, resulting in proctitis. (a highly unpleasant condition for which there is no cure) She admitted as much to my other doctor, but insisted that "she'd never heard" of my result, so this obviously was not her fault. Please make sure to research that the drugs she gives you are for what you came in for.

    I saw Dr Shaposhnikov for a routine colonoscopy. Over the years, working in the medical profession and being a patient myself, I have had the opportunity to observe many physicians. Dr Shaposhnikov does not see a GI tract walking into her office but instead sees the entire patient. Because she took time, she picked up two separate issues that had nothing to do with the colonoscopy and insisted I follow up. Her advice, concern and insistence served me well.
