      Spent less than 10 minutes with me. Did not examin my shoulder, look at or even consider the pain or swelling. Went off xrays only no talk about checking tendons, ligaments, etc. Had to see another specialist that actually helped me. Very disappointed in Shapiro's care.

      I've seen Dr. Shapiro twice in the past three months and found him to be caring, kind and very helpful. I appreciate that Dr. Shapiro's on the conservative end (will try other treatments before rushing into an invasive surgery). He's extremely thorough with testing and therapy before reaching a diagnosis. I believe another surgeon may have performed surgery on me long ago, which would have been a HUGE mistake. I'm grateful that my Primary Care Dr. referred me to Dr. Shapiro - I trust him.

      Dr. Shapiro did thumb & carpel tunnel surgery on my R hand in 2005. He was kind, caring,compassionate & patient back then. HE HAS CHANGED.I totally agree with the reviews that the other people made. After having 3 visits & therapy on my arm. I left his office in tears mad & still in pain with no answers & him not wanting to help. He is arrogant, uncompassionate and it is evident that he doesn't care. I would never recommend him to anyone. He treated me horrible & unprofessional BUT NEVER AGAIN.

      Dr. Shapiro is a very arrogant, condescending person. I would definitely not recommend him and would advise anyone who wants their surgeon to have any compassion to choose a different one. I will never go back to him.

      He is a horrible Dr. He spent 2mins with me to say I am fine. I am not fine and its 2 months later and i have limited use of both hands. Doctors should say they do not know whats wrong if they do not know and call in a real specialist when they need too.

      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.
