I cannot say enough good about Dr. S. First of all, she listens. She truly makes you feel that you are important, and takes an interest in your care. While her bedside manner is very very good, her level of knowledge is fantastic. She is realistic with treatment options, and very creative when it comes to working around problems. She is just what we need out here in the Conejo Valley. Truly, she is a very good physician.

I really enjoyed seeing Dr. Shaposhnikov the first time I went to her. She was super sweet and I felt really comfortable. My endoscopy with her was a breeze. When I went in for my follow up I felt she rushed me out of there and was very snappy with answering my quesitons, it made me a little sad because I really liked her the first time I went to her. Overall though, she is a good doctor.
