      Dr. Shapiro has a huge heart, and an amazing bedside manner. She makes you feel as if she has all the time in the world for you, and she listens patiently and carefully. She enabled me to be able to bend my knees without pain, and fixed my Achilles, which is finally pain free as well, in only had 2 visits. I cannot say enough good about this woman. To me she's a living breathing guardian angel. My quality of life is forever changed for the better. She's my hero!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
