I saw Dr Shapiro for a curvature of the spine (scoliosis) when I was 14 years old (about 12 years ago). He did not sugarcoat anything-- in fact, he was abruptly direct. I can understand why people might rate him poorly on his manner, but I personally found it refreshing. He told me that I would have to have surgery, my curvature had surpassed the point where I could correct it with bracing. His directness allowed me to trust him and his surgical methods. I saw three surgeons-- Dr. Shapiro was the winner. He answered all of my questions in a clear and concise manner. My surgery was extended because he sewed me up instead of stapling me-- Because of my young age, he did not want me to have ugly surgery scars. He did not tell anyone that he did this and it was a surprise even to Judy. She told me that he had never sewn anyone up before. My surgery was a complete success--Any problems surrounding my surgery were the fault of the hospital. In fact, both Dr. Shapiro and my attending doctor in the hospital were livid at the treatment I received at Evanston Hospital. Long after my surgery, I saw him to request that I borrow my x-rays and files for a school project on scoliosis-- He gladly gave them to me and talked to me for a long while on how I was doing. A few years ago my grandmother saw Dr. Shapiro for a spinal problem-- Dr. Shapiro remembered who I was and told my grandmother that he would enjoy me stopping by the office if ever in town. Dr. Shapiro made a horrible experience a bearable one, and for that, he will forever be in my heart.

I disliked that he decided to tell me he thought I had metastasized breast cancer in my neck without even knowing. Luckily I did not have that at all, and instead degenerative disc disease. I was all alone when he told me. No family members, husband nor friend accompanying me that day.

Dr. David Shapiro gave me back my life. After I had back surgery which included metal plates and screws with cages, I can now do everything I was unable to do for a long while. I was confident and very happy with Dr. Shapiro. HE is my hero! I could never say anything but, thank you to an unbelivable wonderful man who saved my life. He's a kind understanding dr with a heart of gold who cares about his patients.
