Very thorough. I told him I have a family history of diabetes and he had all of the tests done immediately,and gave me a glucose monitoring device for for further testing. I made the appointment on zocdoc and had a quick and efficient experience. I actually chose to come here which is 1.5 hours away from Central Jersey where I live and I plan to come again.

Dr Shapiro listens to me and not base my thyroid issues only on numbers. If I am feeling bad it means that something is off. He makes it feels as if your input is just as valid and your session is not just him lecturing at you.

My husband seen this doctor. First appointment was not so bad, dr seemed nice enough, wait time was long but reasonable. Went back 2 weeks later for test results, taken in right away and than sat in exam room for an hour and a half. Another patient stepped out of his room and complained and the Dr screamed at him “that if he had to leave, he shouldn’t have made an appointment.” One is the staff members also yelled at an older woman because she told her her access ride was waiting for her and the doctor had not seen her as of yet. Bedside manors extremely unacceptable. Needless to say my husband walked out shortly after that and no one said a word to him. and an hour later no one even called him to see if he was returning. Will never return to this doctor ever again.

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 skill and 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 answer my 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 medication which 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 next week. 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
