Dr. Shapiro is one of the best doctors I've encountered as a patient. Simply put, he is wonderful. He's extremely intelligent and caring. He will always try his best to help. I've asked him for advice on non-GI related medical problems, and he doesn't hesitate to offer his expertise to help. Dr. Shapiro is a wonderful listener and will provide you with his full attention when he's in the room with you. He will always thoroughly explain any next steps and why a test needs to be performed. He's extremely quick at responding to messages. He's the best! Thank you for the care.

I was extremely pleased with Dr. Shapiro. He was highly attentive and concerned and gave me very good ideas moving forward. He also made himself very available for follow-up questions and specifically asked me to provide him feedback going forward. I hadn't seen him in three years and came in to give him an update on my status and was very glad that I did.

Dr. Shapiro made me feel very comfortable, and to my surprise he didn't rush through the exam as if he had something else to do. For being such a crowded and busy place I felt like I was the only one there and the only one that mattered that day . Thanks again for caring.

Dr. Shapiro is the best! he figured out what was wrong with me in 1 visit. I have been dealing with different doctors over the past 5 years, and Dr. Shapiro was the only one who figured it out. I wish I would have went to him from the beginning!! I'm just thankful for him and the staff. they were all very sweet and caring.

Took care to really explain both the procedure as well as his thought processes on my situation. He took time to review documentation I brought with me and offered his impression on how it impacted my risk factors and things to look out for. Surprisingly given how busy he clearly was it did not feel rushed. He took his time but relayed information efficiently while still assuring I was comfortable.
