Wow! The office decor maybe appealing, but the front sure needs work. The Huntersville front staff had a very cold, inattentive, money greedy attitude (pay the bill or else). Being a new patient, I waited 10 minutes for her to stop staring at the computer, to give the paper to fill out. After an hour wait, the doctor discussed the procedure and noticed that we had a high deductible (his eyes lit-up). Long story short, the no change on our second visit and other patients was complaining too

Dr Shapiro performed Lapidus Bunion surgeries on both of my feet. The surgeries were performed about 9 months apart. I just completed my last follow-up appointment and I am so pleased with the outcome/results. Most importantly, my feet no longer hurt & they even look normal! Dr Shapiro is very knowledgeable, professional and is concerned with providing the best solution, support, and follow-up care. He has surrounded himself with a caring, informative, and helpful staff. I would highly recommend

I began seeing Dr. Shapiro for a stress fracture from running, and I have nothing but positive things to say. He is obviously very knowledgeable. I really appreciated that he took the time to understand me and my goals. He learned that I plan to continue running, so he tailored my treatment to fix my current problem and also took steps that will allow me to continue running while limiting the risk of another fracture. Very patient focused and overall a great experience.

went to Dr Shapiro for a callus on the bottom of my foot. I've had this issue for years. I had a wonderful HONEST doctor who scraped the callus to stop the annoying feeling of a hard nodule on the bottom of my foot. i recently moved to the Charlotte area. Unfortunately found dr Shapiro. Went there to find out that they said I must have an x-ray???? Long story short had his NURSE put one drop of an acid to try and get rid of the callus. DID NOTHING, but they charged $300.00 for the nurse.Horrible

Dr. Shapiro is awesome. I started to see him for a cracked ankle. He was very sympathetic and understood that I was hurting. He did everything he could to help me get better. He and his staff made me feel very important to them. Dr Shapiro is super sweet, he always has smile on his face. I would recommended him to anybody who has any foot problem to go see him.

I love this practice. Really nice staff and very competent and professional doctors. When I had surgery Dr. Shapiro personally called me at home that evening to make sure I was doing Ok and that I didn't have any questions. On 2 occasions he was 30 minutes behind schedule. That was nothing compared to other places plus he took his time with me and was able to fix my problem same day saving me from having to come back AND pay a second copay.

The only redeeming quality was his staff. He was very brief and I felt like he had somewhere to go. I paid $299.00 out-of-pocket which included having my feet x-rayed and custom inserts made for my plantar fasciitis. I brought the shoes in three weeks later he told me to order and the inserts were put in by his staff. Saw him in the hallway going past me and I was charged for a full office visit. To this day those $299.00 inserts cause blisters. Corp. rather than practice.

Excellent care. Sometimes he is brief, but I don't mind that... I have things to do too. He is professional and he helped my 2-year bout with HORRIBLE plantar fasciitis.
