Specialties

Dr. David A Shapiro has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Clear explanations, engaging, skilled

He called the night before, asked insightful questions. When being prepped, he explained everything that was happening to me an why, so that I would be comfortable. Usually I get sore afterwards from the endotracheal tube, but I felt great afterwards. He was very personable.

An amazing anesthesiologist!

He did my sedation for an upper endoscopy today. Made me feel very comfortable and reassured that my life was in good hands. Thorough in explaining what will happen and will answer any questions. He's very nice and seems like an overall great guy. Definately would recommend to anyone in need of a good anesthesiologist.
