Four Stars

Dr. Shapiro is an excellent physician. Unfortunately, he has handed over his patients to a P.A. and doesn't see patients in the office anymore, except briefly once or twice a week. Instead, he does only procedures. His wife schedules those and he has 2 medical assistants. The staff, in general, is snippy and intimidating. My main complaint, however, is that I no longer have access to my doctor. I can't ask him questions, even if he's down the hall, or discuss my condition with him. I don't have confidence in the P.A. I want access to my doctor; I don't think that's unreasonable. The P.A. is moody, prescribes meds I can't tolerate, then bawls me out for not "cooperating;" and last year, attacked me verbally twice. If all that negative stuff were out of the way, it would be a great environment with an excellent doctor (he's very thorough). But if I have no access to him, what's the point?

Waited 7 weeks after procedure to get results. I called every week and he was too busy to call me and tell me the results.

Spends a lot of time with patient

My first initial new patient visit Dr. Shapiro spent over an hour and fifteen minutes with me. He thinks and analyze the situation more than any other dr. I have went to. Very nice and the staff was very onto of their game. He provided free samples also. Nice man, nice people.

Inspires confidence

Dr Shapiro and his staff put me at ease immediately. Both the doctor and his staff were professional yet considerate and welcoming. Doctor Shapiro has a wonderful bedside manner and despite what must be a very full schedule does not make one feel hurried in any way. The discussion was extensive and the printed handouts helped a great deal. I would recommend Dr Shapiro and his staff, most highly.
