"Dr. Shapiro has vast knowledge of gastro-intestinal issues, at least for me. Beyond that, he is simply easy to speak to regarding what may be happening with you and never gives you the sense he needs to be somewhere else when he's sitting with you. Empathetic, knowledgeable, helpful."

"Dr Shapiro's office is very well run, everybody from the girls at the front desk to the girls who take you into your exam room to the girls who check you out are very nice very helpful and any one of them can answer any question you have if they can't they find the answer for you and have it by the time you're ready to leave. Dr Shapiro himself is very comforting kind never makes you feel that he's in a hurry takes his time with you. You never wait more than 15 minutes past your appointment time to see him so you're not waiting a long time you know it's not going to be a 2-hour appointment which I like! He also knows a lot about what he's doing I was told I had one thing and my first visit to him he looked at me and said you do not have that! I said how do you know and he said cuz I'm looking at your chart and I'm looking at the reports and now that I'm looking at you that's not what you have so he said I want you to have this ultrasound done and I'll have the results the next day and I called the office the next day and he was right I had something completely different than I was told I had by the doctors in the hospital after being there for 5 days they gave me the wrong diagnosis Dr Shapiro gave me the right diagnosis! For that I am forever grateful to Dr Shapiro. If you're looking for a gastrointestinal doctor I would see Dr Shapiro!"

"Dr Shapiro has been my gastroenterologist for many years. He is also my husbands Dr. He is the most pleasant doctor. He is always willing and ready to discuss any issues you might have and answer any questions. He incorporates your input in any decision making and facilitates the process. His bedside manners is beyond professional, but most importantly his follow up calls on test results are always timely."

"Dr. Shapiro is terrific! He and the staff at North Shore Gastroenterology put me at ease immediately. He explains each procedure thoroughly and spends as much time with you as you need, answering all questions. So glad I was referred to him; I now tell everyone to see him!"
