It took two hrs to see my Dr. today. I literally saw him for 2 to 3 mn. The wait time is usually fairly quick. However this Dr. doesn't leave any room for his patients to ask questions or voice concerns.I believe this Dr. would be an excellent physician if he would allow the patient to speak.

Dr. Yakov is quick to ignore anything you say and gets angry if you say anything he doesn’t agree with. Very short fuse. I left his office for the third time feeling like I had inconvenienced him, and I still don’tknow anything about my condition at all. There have to be better doctors out there. I’ve never been more annoyed with a healthcare “professional”. Would ~not~ recommend.

The jury is still out. Did not like waiting an hour and a half after my appointment to see the doctor. Not all that impressed with the doctors bedside manner. I appreciate doctors that take their time with you and makesure all of your questions are answered. Maybe my follow up visit will be different, stay tuned!

I've been with Dr. Shaposhnikov since 2003. When I have moved out of the state, I would come back to see him. I have a complicated case and he's been good with the initial care of my gastroenterology system and makingsure I see the right specialist. He even listens when I have an opinion on any specialist and hasn't mind me seeing other ones. He has been a ”primary care” doctor of my liver and pancreas.

Doctor Shapo was very nice and funny. He has jokes that make you relax if the doctor's office gives you a little anxiety. I sort of feel like my issues were not taken seriously. He told me I was too youngto be there and gave me a list of gas-producing foods to avoid for two weeks before he moves forward with any procedures. The problem is, is that most of the foods on the list are foods that have been an integral and regular part of my diet for years and now I really don't know what to eat. Items like broccoli, carrots, cabbage, and beans are huge things to eliminate, and they have never given me major issues before. I just wish we had at least discussed more intense ways of figuring out what's wrong before chalking it up to diet. I don't want to gamble with my health.

Had a very good visit with Dr. S. Found him personable and knowledgable. He ain't young ... so he may tend to over-explain things. The office is well-organized and clean. I was able to find parking next to the building.

Today was my check up after my colonoscopy. Dr. Yakov David Shaposhnikov, MD,FACP was very thorough with explaining things that were discovered during the procedure. He explained that everything went well he sent a biopsy of the colon and everythingchecked out normal. He explained unless unless specific things happen to me that he will see me back in 3-5 years for a follow up. The Dr. was very pleasant and even cracks jokes during your visit which makes you feel at ease and comfortable. See you in 3-5 years Doctor.

I enjoyed the Doctor's humor and bedside manner. He explained the procedure in detail which helped me feel confident in what needed to be done. My real surprise was the friendly and helpful staff! Everyone was genuine in helping me fillout paperwork and making appointments. I am so use to front staff being rude, uncaring and making me feel like I'm bothering THEM that this office visit was a complete shock. I wish this staff could train other medical offices. It was a joy to be treated well! JLV
