Dr. Shapiro was extremely knowledgeable & experienced. He was able to discuss my medical issues with me with with empathy & compassion in contrast to other doctors I have seen. I would highly recommend him as a physician given his skilland ability to talk to me in terms I understood. At the same, time his office staff was extremely friendly & and went out of their way to be helpful.

I am not one to write reviews but this is by far the worst doctor I have ever visited. He does not care about his patients. He pretty much kicked me out of the office and did not want to answermy questions. Prescribed a hormone drug without providing any side effects or explanation of use. I also asked him to test for something specific in my blood test and he said sure no problem. When I went to the front desk they told me the doctor never approved or even mentioned to test for this. All of the terrible reviews on here about him are absolutely true. He is just an awful physician. The wait time was also absurd. I strongly do not recommend going to him. Find someone else even if you have to wait weeks to schedule an appointment with another doctor. What a waste of time.

‘Dr. ‘ Shapiro acted like a robot with a wrinkled lab coat who was simply unable to respond to the tearful human being sitting in front of him. I questioned WHY my thyroid was malfunctioning before starting a serious hormone medicationwhich he prescribed immediately before even having a scan or my T3 results; his verbal response ‘it doesn’t matter why, it’s just not working’. As a registered nurse with Crohn’s disease, the etiology of my new thyroid disease DOES matter. However I quickly learned if you have any previous knowledge about this disease or questions about the process, Dr. Shapiro will cut you off, lecture you about why you came to him, mumble into his dictaphone, and then run away while he directs you to the red arrows out the door. He is a coward who has no interest in a holistic approach and getting to know his patients on a human level. The staff, however, seemed lovely and truly embarrassed by his behavior.

I love the doctor but the scheduling was not good today I had to reschedule because I was asked to come earlier than my appointment and I did. Then I was still waiting too long, finally I agreed to reschedule nextweek. But I felt pressured because my results are abnormal and I had to come next week or the doctor will be on vaction starting July 10th

He and his staff were very sweet, & very thorough. Signed in as a new patient, had blood drawn, ekg, x rays, thyroid sonogram, and a breathing test all in the matter of an hour and a half. He's not exactly the best listener, but he's very knowledgeable .

I needed a quick appointment with an endocrinologist as my previous doctor had moved and left no forwarding address. I filled out all of the required documents and put my insurance information into Zocdoc prior to my appointment. When I gotinto the office it was around 2:05PM and my appt was at 2:30PM. I signed all of the forms that I previously filled out, gave them my insurance again so they could make another copy, and paid a copay. Within 10 minutes of arriving I was already in a room getting my bloodwork, EKG, urinalysis, and electrical nerve impulses test done. Dr Shapiro came in to see me twice, once before the tests and once after, and gave me a course of action to keep my Type I Diabetes in check. There was never a long 2-3hr wait like with my previous doctor, and throughout the experience I felt like I was with a doctor who knew what he was doing and had a script set up for my visit. I have a follow up appt next week, but on the basis of this initial visit, I know Dr Shapiro is light years ahead of my previous specialist.

This man is not right in the head. Believe the negative reviews. You are rushed or the door. He yells if you ask questions. He tells you "all questions at the end". Then when he's done mumbling he leads you tothe exit without answering any questions. This happened 2ce. I got my test results which is what I needed for my upcoming surgery but will NEVER go back to Harry Shapiro. There really is something wrong with him. Also. . While examining me he asked me to breathe deeply and the stethoscope never even touched me. His response"sounds great" He will tell the same thing to every patient. "GOOD NEWS" Meanwhile he didn't even read my test results until that visit. . And he left out two of them..I had to remind him that on my first visit he took unwarranted xrays. . Can I at least get the results? ??? If I were my old self I would have told him off. I am grown now. I just left. Don't go to him. P.S. I will say that the technicians in the back are fantastic! !!
