Dr. Shelley M Shapiro has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

No Nonsense Doctor

Dr. Shapiro is an excellent doctor. What you have to get past is her rough exterior. She is a no nonsense doctor. She tells it like it is. She is the leading expert on pulmonary arterial hypertension. She saved my wife's life and I'm thankful for that. Her staff was very helpful too.

They say she is good, but you could die while waiting to get an appointment with her . U.C.L.A has the world's worst communication system and getting an appointment with after going through all her minions is very nerve wracking! She is so sheltered by her staff we just gave up on her!
