Walked out of an appointment, I had already waited an hour for, to be told it would be another 45 minutes. Would be nice if they could have explained how long I would be waiting, in stead of me having to ask after a hour. Patient's time is not important to them. Have been there before but will not be going back.

My son was misdiagnosed for 6 months. Had a trach put in at 3 days old due to vocal paralysis when in reality webbing was anchoring the vocal folds. He would treat me poor when I would question why there was no explanation for the supposed paralyzation. Called u of m outside shapiros office when my son had his checkup at 6 mo and got in 2 days later. My son was scoped and the webbing was found instantly. Surgery was reversed at a year old by U of M. The initial intubation at Bronson for the trach was forced and permanently damaged a vocal fold. My son is now delayed and in speech therapy. If I didn't contact u of m, I don't know where he would be. On a side note, 3 years later, shapiro told my grandma she just had a wart on her nose, when she wasn't sold, she went to his partner who found it was cancerous.

He was very kind to me and my child, explained everything and then took the time to talk to my daughter. It was a great experience.

I was worried about seeing Dr. Shapiro after hearing some negative things about him, though after my appointment, I feel much better. After a very painful botched wisdom teeth surgery, I was very nervous to have anything done again. Dr. Shapiro and his PA spent over an hour with me diagnosing my problems and deciding a tonsillectomy would be best for me. Dr. Shapiro was very understanding of why I was nervous and made me feel comfortable. He listened when I explained how vicoden doesn't really work on my pain. Overall, I don't think I've ever had a doctor and PA listen to me more about my health problems and my fears.His office staff was also very helpful. I go back to school in 4 weeks, and they are working to schedule my tonsillectomy surgery for before I go back. I'll update again after my surgery if anything changes, but as far as I'm concerned now, Dr. Shapiro is a great ENT, my only complaint was a long wait before my appointment, which is understandable since my own appointment was an hour. It was well worth the wait.
