    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!
