Dr. Shapiro, is an excellent surgeon. I had a constant shoulder pain for 40+ years. Doctor Shapiro took the pain away with a complete shoulder replacement. Now my shoulder feels like if I was a 20 year old again. Surgery was June 1st, 5 months later I can throw a ball. I highly recommend Dr. Shapiro, my only regret was not seeing him sooner.

I have attempted to make an appointment with the Dr. and I can't leave a message on their system. I called about 15 times and the answering system said it didn't recognize my response. I even called their system start at the hospital, and told them I couldn't get his system to work, they put me back in the same place with no working system. Since his staff refuses to answer a phone I don't see any way to use Dr. Shapiro.

Dr was good. Surgery went very well and the Dr listened to me and answered some of my questions. However the office I am not happy with. Very poor communication. Office is very busy and I respect that but I feel that because the office is busy and so are the doctors you become a number and get lost in mist of this busy office. I had other issues that we not addressed and my all over care was not great . I felt that my best interest of care was lost . Overall Dr was good but that is it.
