I didn’t see Shapiro but the doctor I did see was amazing removed a cyst from the root from my grandmother who had someone else check a little lump on her face and stated it’s nothing she doesn’t have to worry. She doesn’t like to see other doctors other then the ones she goes to for yearsssss but she gave it a shot and now asks me to make her appointments with doctors I check out .

Don’t not see this doctor! Doctor Shapiro makes it clear that he does not care about all his patients. From the moment I entered the office, the receptionist made me feel uncomfortable by challenged the authenticity of my medical coverage. Afternearly an hour, I went in to see doctor. While in his office, he didn’t answer any of my questions and did not care about my concerns. It was clear that he wanted me out the office and rushed my entire visit. In short, I can’t help but to link this to my race as there was no other discernible reason. I was the only person of color there and the only person treated this way. I left the office feeling worse than when I came in.

The receptionists refused to print my paperwork from zocdoc and had me fill all of the information on paper from scratch. This defeats the purpose of using zoc doc. She claim they don't use zocdoc anymore and want to be removed from the site.

I had a visit early in the morning, so I'm not sure how the office was able to get so backed up with patients in such a small amount of time. It seemed a little strange to have appointment options only10 munites apart. The actual time with the nurse and doctor was fine though.

I loved how the doctor was able to explain to me my condition, but really did not like how dirty the front entrance was. I believe presentation counts a lot . The stairs were filthy and dark. The staircases had nolights so going up the stairs was not safe at all. There was a lot of garbage on the stairs as you go up. Sucks because this doctor is great at his job but his facility’s isn’t presentable or comfortable environment as you sit in the waiting area.

I waited for over 2 hours to be seen for 5 minutes (as did everyone in the wait room, and it seems this is the norm). If you have 2-3 extra hours to twiddle your thumbs, go here. Dr Shapiro seemsnice enough, and is quite charming - makes all the right noises about how he’s so sorry about the wait, but it looks like it’s just platitudes because nothing changes. I didn’t need anything beyond a quick consultation, so can’t speak to his skills, but he must be good if people keep coming back despite the increasing wait times.
