Very thorough, and performed every exam by himself. Explained what each exam was testing for and why.

Dr. Shapiro is incredible. He takes the time to get to know you and he took the time to ensure that I was fully informed of all medical procedure before he did anything. He also went out of his way to help me fully understand everything in detail.

He was very thorough, took his time to make sure I got a complete physical. I also like how he did the whole physical himself. Every part. I will see him again next year.

My visit to Dr. Shapiro was excellent from the moment I entered his office. His office was plush, organized, and calm. His staff was courteous, patient and polite. I wasn't rushed or anything like those revolving door facilities. Dr. Shapirowas extremely concerned with knowing my past medical history in order to understand my current concerns. I was very pleased with his performance not to mention he's a well know author of weight loss books as well. Kudos Dr. Shapiro. Thank you for a delightful experience.

I found Dr. Shapiro on Zocdoc on very short notice (same day), and for such a 'cold call' visit, I found that he was fabulous. He was clearly completely qualified, but also attentive, interested, and reassuring ... as any new patientmight hope a doctor would be. I feel happy and confident about continuing to consult this doctor.

Dr. Shapiro has not been consumed by the pressures being a doctor in modern days. He has been around the block and is well educated, well published, and I think brings his diverse background to patients in a consumable and friendlyway. He is willing to spend time to get to know you and is thourough in his examinations and care. This is an old-school practice focusing on health first.
