The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Shapiro.
“Dr. Shapiro is a very caring and straightforward professional surgeon. He is a great asset to the center and if I ever need surgery again I will choose Slocum and Doctor Shapiro if the type of surgery falls under his specialty.”
– Scott K.
“Really, really good experience. I receive steroid injections in my shoulder because of a "massive shoulder " injury. For me, the best results are injections given from the front. Dr. Shapiro has his nurse put traction on my arm to "open up" the joint space and he finds the entrance into the space and the steroid is then effective in reducing. This takes a lot of confidence on Dr. Shapiro's part and really knowing shoulder anatomy.”
– James F.
“Very Happy with the staff and Dr Shapiro! It was nice to have a great Dr like him! Fixed me first visit!”
– Susan S.
“Both staff and doctor very professional and thorough from diagnosis thru recovery.”
– David M.
“Dr. Shapiro has done both my shoulders...I think I'm one of his poster children now. He and the anesthesiologist are demi-gods in my book.”
– Chad M.
“My surgery and my appointment with Dr. Shapiro went well. He is a professional with a great talent of relating to his patients. He was considerate and offered a few physical therapy ideas to improve my range of motion. He took the time to make sure that all of my questions were answered and reminded me to call if I had any other questions later.”
– Lynda T.
“I had a lot of pain in my shoulders and knees. Dr Shapiro speed me and explained why I was having pain and have me a couple injections and the pain was gone almost instantly. It had been months and I'm still not really having much pain. Thank you doctor”
– Tina H.
“I continue to appreciate his explanations and willingness to spend enough time with me that I feel heard and understood. I trust his advice and care, and I have referred others to him.”
– Jan J.
“My experience was pleasant. The facility is very nice and the people are friendly and helpful. My doctor addressed my concerns and his prescription has thus far worked well. I would and have recommended Slocum Center to others.”
– George S.
“I had a rotator cuff repair and a bone spur removed. I had little to no pain from the procedure. I am getting my full movement back. I have no pain or aching like I did before the repair. I feel that the surgery was successful and Dr. Shapiro is very good and competent.”
– Leslie R.
“Matt's straight-forward approach to symptom discussion and solutions presentation is very welcome. I feel fortunate that I was able to be treated by Dr. Shapiro. The Slocum Center was a pleasure to deal with, very professional and yet very welcoming and warm feeling. Keep up the good work!”
– Dave B.
“He was informative and kind, interesting and fun. This all helped with my healing.”
– Judy L.
“Dr. Shapiro was well-informed of my medical history at my very first appointment, he had clearly done his homework. He ordered additional imaging which was done immediately at his facility. This really expedited the process for making a surgery decision, getting the surgery done, and moving on to recovery. Dr. Shapiro explained my diagnosis and treatment plan thoroughly and provided notes to take away. He answered all my questions. He was kind and professional at every visit. My surgery went very well and I have had an excellent outcome. It is wonderful to be out of pain and back to full function!”
– Marsha L.
“Came in because of the excruciating pain in my left knee. Dr. Shapiro attended to me by giving me a cortisone shot in the joint which helped. I definitely will return when I need my left knee replaced.”
– Joan L.
“I was skeptical about needing an x-ray, but sure enough it revealed an anatomical variation along the lines of a type 2 acromion. I was able to get things sorted through physical therapy and some ergonomic adjustments.”
– Matthew A.
“Dr. Shapiro was very helpful and took the time to explain the pros and cons. The treatment (shots) was quick and painless. He thoroughly explained the treatment plan and listened to my input.”
– Ray A.
“I have a lot of confidence in Slocum and Dr. Shapiro. He made me feel very comfortable and explained my issue in a way that I could understand. At anytime that I have had an appointment with Slocum and Dr. Shapiro, I have very little wait time before I am seen. I appreciate that my time is respected.”
