Dr. Shapiro counts the minutes she spends with you. She keeps her eyes on the keyboard and not on you. She is condescending, does not manifest any compassion or empathy, and is eager to prescribe medications and follow-up appointments without fully understanding the whole picture. She is the worst doctor I've ever encountered. She is not warm, not reassuring, does not smile, and should be given a dose of her own medicine.

Dr. Shapiro mis-diagnosed a health condition and prescribed a medication that caused severe side effects. When I questioned her about this, she dismissed my concern and told me it was due to stress. She does not listen, she does not explain or educate, she refuses to consider or discuss alternative (ie, natural) treatments. My experience with her has been upsetting and frightening. I am no longer her patient.

Deb Shapiro is awesome. I have been her patient for 10 or more years. She cares deeply, is pleasant, explains things, is very knowledgeable. I trust her completely.
