Dr. Shapiro is very arrogant and condescending...I am on 4 different medications for depression and anxiety and they are not working well at all...I have asked him to maybe change a medication or have mentioned other medications that others with my condition have said helped them...He flat out said no...I'm not sure what to do at this point :( But it's good to know that I'm not the only one with negative experiences with this doctor.

I have had lots of mediocre experiences with mental health care so was pleased and a little surprised with Dr. Shapiro's respectfulness, patience, and attention to detail. When I emailed him with a question about side effects, rather than respond to my email he called me because he said he needed additional information before he could answer my question! The only thing is don't miss your appointment, because he is so busy it can be a wait to get it rescheduled

I was showing signs of PTSD and started to shed a few tears (not a breakdown) when discussing the incident that caused this. In response he asked if this was one of the crying spells I had mentioned. He also insisted I had ADD because I could not properly tell the story start to finish. And insisted I be put on medication for this. I was concerned about taking medication for ADD but he put me on adderall without clearly explaining what to expect. He also took me off my low dosage anxiety medication -I had been on this for a year with no complaints- and put me on something far more powerful that caused complications. He was clearly disgusted with my inability to completely explain the traumatic event and I went home and cried. He was extremely condescending and I sincerely doubt patients voluntary see him twice. I will be reporting him.
