Arrogant, rude, condensending, disagreeable.. Can you believe I am talking about a Dr? I walked out of his office muttering "What just happened?" This was my only visit to Dr. Shapiro. His staff apologized to me telling me he had a bad day, but it was only 10:00 AM. When I requested my medical records be transferred to a new Dr. I was told all my previous records were thrown away and they had no legal obligation to save records from my previous long term Dr. that had retired. It was only 10 days since my visit to Dr. Shapiro that I requested the records be transferred. I just can't believe that a Dr. can be so awful. And I am as easy of a guy as there is to get along with. I left his office a mental wreck, didn't think it was possible. Oh well!! That's life!
Always a pleasure
Love Dr. Shapiro and all his associates. Friendly, efficient, and always thorough!
I find Dr. Shapiro always takes plenty of time with me and my concerns. And answers my questions.
Doctor Edward Shapiro has been my physician for a long time. I would not know who to talk to if he was not my doctor.
Always a good experience
I would like to say that my visit to Dr. Shapiro was satisfactory. My daughter came with me and she was concerned about some things and Dr. Shapiro answered her questions.
Excellent doctor, very thorough, highly recommended.
Dr. Shapiro is very concerned about the health of his patients. Easy to talk to. Addresses all issues. Takes the time needed not making you feel rushed. Thank you for great quality of health care.
He's fun to visit, very unpretentious and unassuming. He has a wry and puckish sense of humor akin to my own.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff, concerned and caring doctor.
I am very happy with him. I have been going to him for a long time.
My husband recommended Dr. SHAPIRO to me as I kept putting off going to a doctor. I'm so glad I did go to see the Dr. He made me feel comfortable & did not rush me at all

Dr. Shapiro gives you the time to express any concerns you may have and actually listens.His staff is competent and attentive.
Great service always
The staff, they are all very nice and helpful.
the dr and staff are all great
I had a most pleasant appointment with Dr. Shapiro. The reason for the long wait time was mainly because I had paperwork to fill out as I had not been there for a length of time. He was very helpful with questions and answers.
Excella my as always. I would recommend him 1000th over
Dr. Shapiro does extremely well with all the restraints placed on him and other PCP's by the insurance companies that he services.
Dr. Shapiro is an excellent doctor and his office sets appointments very quickly.
Dr. Shapiro: I have faith in your judgment. You present your professional opinion, and then it is up to his partner. You, "the patient."
Dr. Shapiro saw me on short notice. He thoroughly covered my medical conditions and new medications after my recent hospital stay. I felt relieved after my appointment.
He was very informative and supportive and has a great sense of humor .
I know I will feel better after I see Dr Edward Shapiro.
Dr Shapiro takes time and cares about his patients. My husband and I both use him as our primary care physician. He listens to concerns and wants to make sure his patients are getting the best possible care. He has a great support staff!
I have been with Dr. Shapiro for many year and have always received excellent service. I will continue seeing Dr. Shapiro in the future and I recommend him to my friends and family.
Great as always!
My appointments are always within a timely manner. From the tome I check in I am treated with respect. Dr. Shapiro always takes the time to hear what I have to say. He always lets me know what is going on with my health.His nurses are respectful. I have

vary informative as normal.
always concern from my dr about any issues i may have. he is the best and never rushes me at all.
best Dr. ever! :)
Our family has been going to Dr. Shapiro for 15 years and we love him. We even make sure that we select insurance that includes him as a provider, even if it costs a little more. We would highly recommend him.
Dr. Shapiro took needed time to go over with me the results of my blood test and worked to make sure my prescriptions were set up properly.
Talking with Dr. Shapiro is liking talking with a good friend. There's not a lot of "doctor-eze." He makes everything easy to understand and will answer any and all questions you might have. Very comfortable feeling visiting his office.
Discussed my concerns carefully. He is following up on a concern and will communicate as soon as he gets some answers.
THE DOCTOR EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO ME,EVERY TESTS THAT I TOOK,WHAT I SHOULD DO TO CORRECT ANY PROBLEM AREAS,WHAT TEST I SHOULD HAVE TO PREVENT ANY POTENTIAL PROBLEMS, IN GENERAL A VERY GOOD VISIT
Dr. Shapiro is always asking the right questions and is concerned about getting the right information so that he can give you educated and knowledgeable answers to questions and concerns.
In the past, I've had more caring physicians. Doctors' who really show interest in their patients, more than earning revenue. Physicians who aren't scare of touching their patients, and believe them when they complain of specific pain.
Excellent Dr. I really enjoy my visits with Dr. Shapiro and staff and appreciate everything they have done for me.
Awesome as usual no complaints
Consistent review of overall health and laboratory tests.
Considering the multiple number of issues I came in with, I think Dr. Shapiro did quite well. A few hiccups but I also have new insurance and other things that have made me quite a challenge. Lets give us 6 months and then check back :)
Excellent Primary Care - Nuff said
Fine job, answered all concerns we had.
I have recommend him to others. He is a very good and helpful Doctor for me
Dr. Shapiro know about me better than myself and try to HELP my body better with Blood test / better Medications on market.
I would (and HAVE) recommended Dr. Shapiro and his staff to my friends...
I have been going to Dr.Shapino for years. I had the opportunity of seeing other Doctors near my home but would not think of changing as he is a great Doctor.
DOCTOR SHAPIRO ALWAYS TAKES THE TIME TO ADDRESS ALL CONCERNS THAT I MAY HAVE. HE IS A GREAT DR AND SEEMS TO KNOW EVERYTHING AS HE KEEPS UP ON ALL MEDICAL UPDATES, JUST LIKE I KEEP UP WITH ALL ACCOUNTING UPDATES.
great as usual - always gives me excellent care
MY APPOINTMENTS ARE ALWAYS SEEN WITHIN 10 MINUTES AND I AM NEVER RUSHED. MY QUESTIONS ANSWERED AND MY PROBLEMS ARE TREATED & SOLVED AS MUCH AS IS POSSIBLE. THE ENTIRE STAFF IS FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. A PROBLEM THAT NEEDS PROMPT ATTENTION IS ACCOMADATED.
Awesome as always.
As always, it makes going to a doctor a lot easier knowing that you are treated as an individual and not as a number. The Doctor and staff are outstanding .
I have been with provider for many year and I would recommend him to friends and family!
Dr. Shapiro is a great Doctor.

Dr. Shapiro is a unique, fun loving character. He listened to my concerns and advised with easy to understand terms. He should work on his spelling. :)

Dr. Shapiro doesn't "mess around" and gets right to the point. He has a very pleasant demeanor and is easy to talk with. I feel extremely confident and trusting in Dr. Shapiro.

I trust my doctor. I can talk to him about anything that was bothering me. He will help me solve my medical problems. He has been my doctor for years.

Gave me a thorough exam ,ordered info from other docs ,ordered blood work.and set follow up appointment
well informed Dr. who was very professional, courteous, and organized. I learned a great deal about my health, and I made another appointment to come back.
I HAVE BEEN TO SEVERAL DOCTORS OVER THE YEARS, AND HAVE NEVER FOUND A DOCTOR THAT I CAN REALLY RELATE TOO UNITL I FOUND DR. SHAPIRO. DR SHAPIRO IS VERY UNDERSTANDING AND MOST IMPORTANT TO ME HE IS CARING.
I trust him.
I have been going to Dr Shapiro for over 10 years. He has always been very good with diagnosis, treatment and willing to help me with any questions I may have.
Dr. Shaprio and his associates are very professional and a pleasure to deal with.
Very satisfied with Dr. Shapiro in every profession way.
I love Dr. Shapiro.
Doc Shapiro has been taking care of my family and me for several years. I'm not a person who has much faith in the medical profession any more, except for Doc Shapiro. He's the only Physician I trust.
Friendly front office staff, got me the appt. without any problems this time and also previous apps..
Prompt, caring service every time...for years now. Highly recommended.
I have always had an excellent relationship with Dr. Shapiro. He is always concerned about my well being, and is helpful in explaining what needs to be done about my health needs.
He always addresses the problem(s) and does an excellent job to take care of and research different ways to resolve the issue. My husband and I have been referred to many specialists by Doctor Shapiro but our trust is in him bottom line.
I believe I have been with Dr. Shapiro now for 3 year or more. I certainly wouldn't be a patient of his that long if I did not like him. He's more than just O.K., he's a lot of fun when you get to know him.
Dr. Shapiro is very personable and takes his time to examine his patient. Highly recommend him.
I like Dr Shapiro
Very friendly and helpful front office. Dr. Shapiro is personable and professional.
Doc has always addressed all of my concerns with professionallism. I have been a longtime patient 20 years. I have total trust in him.
Great patient scheduling with appointments. No wait time. Professional and friendly.
i must be losing my mind. too much stress. Disciplinary action in another state Â (8/31/2009) Action Taken: Probation Allegation of Complaint: Edward L. Shapiro, D.O.; License # 20A4201 Nature of Complaint: The physician has been the subject of disciplinary action in another state. Action Taken: The Osteopathic Medical Board of California has Revoked the physician's license to practice osteopathic medicine and surgery in the State of California. The revocation has been Stayed and the physician has been placed on Probation for a period of five years subject to various probationary terms and conditions.
Nothing to like about this Dr. Shapiro. Will never be back again. Staff very rude along with Shapiro's bedside manner. He yells, rants and acts disorientated. Gives no explanations for his accusations as will as his temper tantrums. Didn't spend more then 10 min. with me after waiting 40 min. total in waiting room and examination room. Never follows up after visit. Never in 41 yrs. have I seen a worst unclean looking Dr. along with his poor attitude and concern for a patient. I do not recommend him. Very poor service and lack of compassion.
Dr. Shapiro is an average dr. I went in there regarding a lump on my leg. He couldn't figure out what the cause was and then he began asking over all health questions. Some of which I felt he should already know as I am a patient of his. I know he has more than one patient but he should be reviewing the patients chart before he sees his patients. I do not like doctors in general anyways and I have yet to find the one that will take care of me and not be so self serving. I feel that if you don't give him the answers he is expecting he doesn't like it.
Dr Shapiro is friendly and professional. Recommend him to all my friends and family. Office staff answers phones fast and are very effecient
There is a saying a first impression is a lasting impression and it wasn't a good impression. I sprained my ankle from a hiking accident in January 2002. I called his assistant/manager and she turned out to be a real witch. I don't remember what I said to her that set her off and at one point she hung up on me. When I called back, she threatened to terminate my account so I swallowed my pride and apologized even though I did nothing wrong. I believe she took advantage of the fact that since my mobility was limited, she could take advantage of me however she saw fit. When things settled down, I had my appointment with Dr. Shapiro. He asked me what I do for a living. I told him I was taking film classes at Scottsdale Community College and he got rude with me telling me I was making a mistake not taking classes in Los Angeles. As soon as I was able to change my provider from Cigna to United Healthcare, I changed physicians. This office's bedside manner gets an F in my book.
Dr Shapiro is the best! The wait is never long. The staff are wonderful. It is a family run office w/his wonderful wife and beautiful daughter by his side, not to mention the rest of the crew...they are all like family. Doc surely cares and is not afraid to rebuke the unrepentent patient! His humor is witty and sacastic (the good kind). He is a sports nut as well as a man knowledgeable in a little bit of everything from current events to religion. But don't be scared away...the point is besides diagnosing and treating his patients he gets to know you personally and can hold an intelligent conversation and well as bring spirits up. My husband and I have been going to the good doctor for approximately 4 years and plan on going to him til we die, he dies or he retires...which ever come first...not fast :)
Very unprofessional. One of the staff members had no problem with yelling at me and using hand gestures. The other staff did not try to stop her or tell her to leave. My husband loves this doctor but because of the staff, he will not be going back there.
Found out how rude the staff was. Very unprofessional. She actually yelled at me and started in with her hand gestures. I wonder if Dr. Shapiro knows how bad some of his staff is. I stopped going there after my first Dr. appointment. Now I am trying to make sure no one else goes back there, it is just not worth it. In my 20 years working in the hospital and with the public, I never yelled at a patient. She really needs a new line of work. One that doesn`t interact with people or require customer service skills.
I have been a patient of Dr. Shapiro for about 4 years. Occasionally wait times are long when they are busy. All of his diagnosis have been accurate and treatments effective and efficient. In one case he was able to recognize a specialists mistake in treating injuries from a motorcycle accident and recommended a different treatment plan that helped tremendously. I would strongly recommend Dr. Shapiro to anyone seeking a family or primary care doctor.
My husband and i have been seeing Dr Shapiro for over 16 years. He has always been very caring and careful in his diagnosis. Not many doctors have a sense of humor and not only does he have one but he is serious when discussing diagnosisWe would not trade him in ever!
I've had Dr. Shapiro for over 18 years and I would not trade him for anyone else. I saw him by accident while under the care of and other Dr. and hesaw something the other Dr. had missed. If he hadn,t caught it when he did I'd probably be dead by now. Thank you Doc.
when you walk into this guys office the first thing you notice are all the advisory notices to make sure they get paid. You can't make a general appointment to see the doctor, you either have to make one for a specific condition or a check up. so if you go in there with an ingrown toenail but have been having chest pains as well you have to chose which one you would like the precious doctor to spend 5 minutes looking at and then reschedule for him to spend another 5 minutes looking at the other.
There was a recent change in office staff, and the service I have received has been horrible ever since. I had to wait two weeks for a prescription to get called in to my pharmacy, and I had to call the doctors office multiple times to get it done. I gave
