Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional and knowledgeable. I've been going to him for 15 years.
Dr. Shapiro was very professional and knowledgeable, and took the time to make sure all of my questions were answered. Highly recommended!
Extremely knowledgeable and caring. Excellent physician!
Dr. Shapiro removed a silicon ear bud lodged in left ear canal in record time.
He is very understanding and knowledgeable of my illnesses. And he is very patient.
Great doctor, midwest charm.
Dr. Shapiro is smart and knows his stuff. I have confidence that he will continue to help me with my allergy problems in the near future. His staff is great, too!
Very good, knowledgable doctor, we were discussing tonsilloectomy, because i had concerns. Dr. Shapiro didnt insist on doing it, he just told me about the outcomes in each situation. And I am very thankful. Also i have allergy-like symptoms, but no allergy to anything, they did allergy test. So we are going to look for what causes me discomfort and hopefully we will find it and fix it.
Very thorough! Straight and to the point but he also has a good sense of humor.
Excellent and professional.
A great doctor with a wonderful personality
Very unprofessional and not at all helpful. I was seen due to hearing loss and tinnitus after an auto accident and he provided to good advice. He said to assess my hearing I'd need a formal hearing test but didn't refer me to anyone or offer it. Very disappointing
He's definitely good at what he does, but his humor can be a little...blunt? Harsh? He seems to mean well though.
He's awesome! Very knowledgeable, caring and thorough.
Very nice,explained everything in detail,very patient
Very personable, professional,, knowledgeable and helpful.
We were at Dr. Shapiro's office for some questions about my future operation. He answered our questions clearly and was very accommodating. I am much less anxious about the procedure.
very professional doctor
Informative, helpful, extremely knowledgable and caring.
Doctor was very professional and friendly. I recommend this doctor! !!!!
I am very happy with Dr. Shapiro. I went to him for breathing problems. He checked on multiple potential issues, informed me the procedures and set expectations. He explained things clearly and made sure I understood my options. Additionally, he is very entertaining and personable.
Got in and filled some forms. About a 20 min from getting to office to walking in the door. The diagnosis was fairly quick.
I was very impressed with his approach to my sinus issues and allergies. His high rating on Zoc doc is well deserved, I wish all doctors had his expertise. He is also hilarious.
I will be following up with him
Awesome as usual.
Excellent doctor very efficient and quick!
Doctor is kinda rough around the edges - very direct and no small talk. Maybe OK for some personalities but scared off a teenager.
Informed, answered my questions, explanations made sense, personable.
Mishail Shapiro is very careful do?tor :)
Very informative,and thorough. He was very nice. Made sure I understood what he was saying. I would recommend him.
The BEST in Lake County. Very informative. Kind. You will like him right away and he is excellent at what he does.
he is a great doctor, kind of talked to me like i was an idiot though, which i of course did not like. not sure if that has to do with the fact that im a woman or not, but whatever. also, i asked a lot of questions and sometimes he can be condescending when he answered. other than that, he is a pretty nice doctor. seems to know his craft really well.
very efficient, friendly
He was professional and thorough, but perhaps too thorough. I had an ear infection and impacted ear wax which my primary care doctor had already determined. I went to the ENT solely to have my ears cleaned out. Dr. Shapiro went above and beyond what I went to his office for and the hefty bill reflected this as well.
Dr. Shapiro is fast, friendly and really knows his stuff. The entire process was almost weirdly pleasant. He speaks and works VERY quickly, so you may have to shoehorn a question into the conversation. But every time I did, he put the brakes on and addressed my concerns thoroughly. Also, his staff is fantastic! Everyone was super sweet and went the extra mile.
It was great! Very proffessional and friendly staff. I hate going into any type of doctor's office but the chemistry between the people that work is great and made my visit less nerve wrecking. Very straight for doctor...which is great!
Great experience. Both the nurses and Dr. Shaprio were friendly and welcoming, and clearly knew their stuff. I felt like I was in very good hands.
He was knowledgeable, courteous, attentive, witty, remarkably perceptive and succint: everything you'd want from a doctor.
My visit with Dr. Shapiro was great. He was straight forward and made me feel very comfortable. Also, the women working at his office were very nice, warm, and welcoming.
I was so impressed with Dr. Shapiro! He was so friendly, relaxed, unhurried, and knowledgable. I highly recommend him. His entire office staff was great!
Dr. Shapiro practices medicine the way it should be - compassionate and professional.
Best doctor i've ever been to, very nice and professional
I was referred to Dr. Shapiro by a nurse that works for the same hospital group. What a great experience! I haven't been to a new doctor in a long time. Dr. Shapiro made me feel at ease instantly. He assessed my problem quickly and thoroughly. He has a great sense of humor and a very relaxed style. His staff is great too! I can now consider him my new ENT.
It was very enjoyable and educational. Dr. Shapiro and his staff are very professional and make you feel very comfortable. I recommend his office for any of his services.
Lots of information about what i have wrong. Great ideas on how to go about fixing my problem. I was impressed..
Dr. Shapiro was very nice and full of humor. I actually enjoyed my experience there, which is hard to say when going to see a doctor. He did a wonderful job letting me know whats going on with me. Everyone else there was very nice as well. I highly encourage others to seek him out.
A wonderful doctor.I felt comfortable and confident after our appointment. Highly recommended.
A very talented, excellent doctor.Totally accurate diagnosis and very effective treatment. Highly recommended!
Prompt, professional , friendly and thorough.
I thought the doctor was very thorough. He took care of the problem immediately. I was nervous when I arrived and smiling when I left. Doctor Shapiro has a great sense of humor - very funny. He made me laugh.
Best I have ever visited. Period.
He was very sensitive to me and listened to me thoroughly. He took time with me, gave me his sincere professional and personal opinion, all with my financial situation in mind, and told me I was welcome to email him if something else came up. I asked for a general consultation, and felt I received a very thorough one!
Good guy, expert, highly reccomend, evaluated and addressed my multi issues, and had video camera system patient and doc can see inside throat, nose, etc! So you know what he sees, I like that. And no radiation.
Took the time needed, answered any questions, good sense of humor. Yes I would recommend.
