Verified Patient Reviews
Dr.Shapiro & his staff listened to my concerns & did a thorough examination & testing in office. They were kind & courteous and though the office was busy I never felt as if I was being rushed to just get me seen & out.
He is definitely knowledgeable. I just felt like it was very rushed. He was in the room only for 5 min.
It was my first visit and I was VERY pleased. The office staff was very nice and Dr. Shapiro was both extremely knowledgable and caring. He listened to me whine and helped calm my nerves. I highly recommend him!
The appointment took 5 minutes, fastest doctor visit I’ve had.
Excellent as usual
I thought everything went very well. The wait time was perfect, the doctors mannerism was excellent. Everyone at the office was very nice. I would definitely go back if I need to and I would definitely reccommend the doctor.
First visit. Did more for me that my regular ENT. He was positive without sugar coating.
I've been seeing him for over a year is a very efficient ENT and and as patient when answering questions. Also, Dr. Shapiro was very successful at removing my tonsils.
Great Dr and great demeanor
I thought Dr. Shaprio was knowledgeable, listened to what I had to say and was very thorough...
Great staff. Quick and easy. Feeling awful for weeks. Doctor said he would help me feel better. Taking medicine. Hope he is right.
Very professional. Would recommend this doctors office to anyone.
Went to see Doctor Shapiro who I have seen before. I have always been happy with him and it really pains me to have to leave this review because he appears to be a good doctor and a is a nice guy. Hard to find sometimes, but this is a "purely principle" kind of review. I came in for a checkup due to congestion. I spoke to the doctor for 5 minutes and he told me he was going to use a camera to look up my nose. The procedure took roughly a minute. I paid my co-pay and left. I received a bill that showed a not unsubstantial charge for the office visit and also a VERY substantial charge for the camera "procedure" which resulted in a significant additional copay to me. No mention of additional expense was ever brought up to me and I spent maybe 10 minutes total with the doctor. I called and peacefully explained that what was happening was not right. They said I had signed the insurance and payment disclosures (which a absolutely had) and I told them that while I understood I was legally responsible that this was an extremely poor business practice. It felt to me like buying a car and then receiving a bill for the seats a few weeks later. They agreed to reduce the bill to slightly which I told them I still did not feel was an appropriate resolution. They received in all a very large sum of money for literally 10 minutes worth of their time. Thank god I had insurance because I can't imagine the reaction of someone without insurance unwittingly being given a procedure and then receiving a the bill I got afterwards. South Florida ENT is a corporation with numerous offices around south Florida and they definitely have the corporate attitude. As a result of clinging to a portion of this surprise deductible, they will lose my future business (which I am upset about because I really do like the doctor). This will ultimately cost them WAY more in the long run. The lady I spoke with in billing commented that my problem really lies with the medical system, but as a consumer of a business all I really hear is a cop-out for a practice to provide poor customer service as it relates to responsibly informing patients of [substantial] potential charges beyond what would be normally and reasonably expected. On a local level this business subscribes to business practices that are inconsiderate of their patients wallet and indeed on a macro-scale this is symptomatic of our country's very broken medical and insurance system. After this experience I will be sticking to a small practice with a good doctor.
