Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Laksman Shapiro has been super helpful in helping me recover after some neck pain due to a work out injury. The office hours allow me to go early in the morning before work, and they even have late hours some nights. The treatment has been a mix of electrical stimulations on the muscles, massage therapy as well as some workouts that are strengthening the neck. I look forward to going every week! Sam
Had an early 8 AM appointment, which a lot of offices don't offer. Dr Laksman was very professional and attentive to problems i've been having with my neck. Looking forward to continuing working on this!
Really great initial appointment with Dr Shapiro and staff. They took their time and I felt confident in their abilities. I look forward to working further with him and his team.
I would highly highly recommend Dr.Laksman and his team! Although he is really busy himself and is often having his assistance/physician(super great people!) take care of me, the whole team is professional, friendly and super efficient. I'm feeling wrong on my kneecap, and the physician find my problem immediately, I saw several doctors before, but none of them even figure what exactly happens to my knee. The exercises are taking actions. The front desk is nice and helpful too; they help me book my appointment for several months, so I don't have to do that multiple times.
When I actually saw him, he was helpful. I usually saw physical therapy students, though--and while I felt they did fine, I was actually a bit upset that I wasn't seeing the licensed practitioner. Also: the practice stopped accepting my insurance, which was disappointing.
Excellent, great guy.
Dr Shapiro recently treated me for tendonitis in my wrist. He and his team were very professional and engaging; and genuinely cared about helping me resolve the problem as efficiently as possible. Dr Shapiro always took time to ask questions about how my wrist was feeling at each appointment, and the treatment was very effective.
Nothing but pleasant experiences so far!
Had to wait a little but he was great!
I've seen Dr. Laks for two separate running-related injuries, both times with great results.
The PTs are nice and seem knowledgeable but the front office staff is super unprofessional and disorganized. I've been seen several times by PTs while the office staff can't manage to find my chart, and I end up just having to re-explain my pain in laymen's terms because the PT is seeing me without my medical records.
Dr. Shapiro was very professional and I felt that I was in very good hands. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I am looking forward to working with him.
He was professional when treating me during the 10 minutes of the appointment. The other time was with an assistant who hooked me up to the machines or gave me exercises to work on. However, I was incredibly disappointed by the front desk. They did not do due diligence with confirming appointments, and I've had two appointments that did not go through or the time was not correct. Nor were they willing to help. My biggest complaint was how unreliable Dr. Laksman is with patient communication. I had complications that spread down to my lower back, and had asked he call me back. I stressed how urgent this was, and he never called... not even to see why I never came back. Really, it made me feel very insignificant as a patient who was seeing him for treatment/rehabilitation.
Kind and knowledgeable.
I was seen a bit late but other than that Dr. Laksman was really great. He is extremely knowledgable.
I worked with Dr. Laks for 6 weeks, 2-3 times a week, rehabbing a running injury. He worked magic! I went from barely being able to hobble around with a cane to training for a race in 6 weeks. He listened to me, gave me excellent advice, and designed a program that had me back in my running shoes in no time. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Very good experience. I am excited to start the program to get rid of my issues!
Office staff is very friendly and helpful - always feel welcome. DPT and acupuncturist are both great.
It was great. Everyone in the office was efficient and respectful. The DPT listened carefully to my temporary condition and was responsive to what I said and felt.
Office is clean and comfortable, staff is friendly and professional. Highly recommended!
