Every person has different taste for food, for clothes, for many things, including choosing the doctor. Dr. Shapiro is special and she makes you feel special. She gives unique, most knowledgeable treatment to every patient. She answers all your questions, solves your problems, gives very valuable advices. Not sure how, but she remembers all your history. If you need a doctor who would treat you in special way and will be available regardless working-hours, this is the place to go.

Dr. Shapiro is my primary care physician for over 5 years. All this time I enjoy top level medical service. She is extremely knowledgeable; very attentive to my complaints during sick visits and making sure she did not miss any updates during my scheduled checkups; always checking if my scheduled medical tests completed and discussing results with me.

Very smart, attentive doctor, caring deeply for patient’s general health & well-being, not just specific problem. Great balance – not panicking/over-medicating, not taking things too easy/waiting too long. Helps patients to make informed decisions when appropriate, but is very assertive, especially when urgent actions are needed. The best bed-side manners! ONE OF THE RARE DOCTORS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER JUST AFTER TALKING TO THEM! The office staff is very attentive, accommodating and helpfuL
Springfield, NJ |
No issues with the doctor but the main administrative assistant is rude and careless. She made a mistake and sent my blood test to the wrong lab out of network so now I have to pay $300 out of my pocket for something that could have been covered 100% in-network by my insurance. Instead of apologizing she lashed back at me.
Orange, NJ |
She's very sweet and attentive. I haven't had any issues with her so far. She was very thorough in making sure that my health was reflective of my family history. Love her office staff also.
Morristown, NJ |
This doctor has zero respect for her patients' time!! Her "normal" is running 2 hours late for appointments. This has happened EVERY time. However if the patient is even 2 minutes they won't hesitate to make you reschedule. This will be the last time I come here. I have given her far too many chances.
in West Orange, NJ |
Dr. Shapiro is competent and professional, has good bedside manner, personable and compassionate, reviews and explains medical reports, does not overly medicate and answers patients questions with respect. She is deserving of 5 Stars, however her decision not to instill the same respect, compassion and urgency into her front desk staff is not acceptable (very long lag time between initial prescrp/authoriz to call pharmacy or insurance, patient forced to give reminder calls). Frustrating!
