My first visit was one of the most positive, professional visits with a Physician and his staff ever. There was more concern about me, the patient, than anything else. Dr. Shapira is definitely about the details and making sure that I was aware of what my problems were.

After searching for a Cardiologist on the internet, I chose to see Dr. Shapira at Lewis Gale in Salem. I called and got an appointment right away. Dr Shmuel Shapira was all that I had hoped for. He was polite yet to the point on subjects we don’t like discusssing like weight and etc. We never like having to admit we weigh too much. Lol He was very knowledgeable and I feel completed by examination well and he answered all my questions in a way I could understand. Excellent staff as well.

The only time I spent with cardioloist, was with my husband. They did not treat you as a human but as a number. Dr Shapira takes his time to make sue you understand everything that is going on and he speaks to you as human being not just another number. I would highly recommend him to anyone and especially my family. He always goes over and beyond is obligations for every patient not just one..

I was referred to Dr Shapira by my Primary Care Physician. I had no prior knowledge of Dr Shapira. I found him to be knowledgeable and willing to give me his undivided attention. Dr Shapira reviewed a prior procedure with me explaining the results. I felt an immediate sense of trust with him and his knowledge and ability. I was also impressed with the staff, including his nurse and a Physicians Assistant who took time to encourage me and explain a proposed procedure. I realize

Took my father in for a referral from his primary physician due to lots of retaining fluid....nothing was done except by the nurse he then indirectly called my father fat and said the swelling was due to a poor diet when u can press on his stomach and legs and see the indention left..
