The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Shapiro.
“As always Dr. Shapiro was very professional, personable and did a fantastic job with my worn out knee.”
– Timothy P.
“I was treated for a torn rotator cuff which involved cleaning out the shoulder joint and reattaching the tendon to the bone with a couple screws. I could not have had more professional and competent people helping me through it. Dr. Shapiro took the time to listen to my questions and provide informative answers. He and his staff were always gracious, caring, and on time. I have no hesitation recommending Dr. Shapiro specifically and the Slocum Center for orthopedic care. When I went in I could barely move my arm and now I am back to easily reaching above my head pain free. I am so grateful. Thank you.”
– Steve B.

“My experience with Dr. Shapiro was excellent from beginning to end. He was kind, thorough, and very professional. He had clearly done his homework on my health and my injury before he walked into the room the first time we met. He made me feel confident in his treatment plan from my first appointment. He clearly communicated what I could expect and what I needed to do in terms of self-care to have the best outcome. My rotator cuff surgery went well, I followed through with prescribed physical therapy, I did my exercises advised by Dr. Shapiro and I am now 6 months out from surgery. I have nearly 100% range of motion back and I am working to recover all my strength. i have some soreness with exercise, but no pain otherwise which is amazing!! Dr. Shapiro's staff is equally professional and efficient. I was never left waiting at the office or on the phone. And PT, imaging, and prescription orders were always done immediately. After experiencing so much pain and other doctors that did not take my injury seriously, I feel like I have my life back!!”
– Marsha L.
“From the very beginning, Dr. Shapiro and all the Slocum staff exhibited very competent expertise, care and respect for me as a patient. As I have told anyone who indicates a need for ortho treatment, Slocum Orthopedic Clinic and Dr. Shapiro are setting the standards to which all medical care should be aspiring to. I now have full, pain-free use of my right shoulder. I am able to fully engage in all the activities I love, and am very thankful. Keep up the great work!”
– Lauralee S.
“I received exceptional medical care from a skilled surgeon with a heart of gold.”
– Brenda G.
“The process of arranging my surgery, the surgery and followup have all to effeciently carried out and I'm quite satified.”
– David T.
“This was my second time seeing Dr Shapiro. I had him do my shoulder several years ago, this recent visit was for my knee. He explained everything to me and answered all my many questions. I think he's great and recommend him every chance I get!”
– Bonnie P.
“I received a Gel-One shot from Dr. Shapiro on May 30th for my left knee--bone-on-bone condition due to osteoarthritis. I am functioning without pain, including line-dancing and gardening--although no running or jumping! The previous Supartz shots (n=5) I received from Dr. Shapiro lasted almost 18 months, before I needed pain relief and got the Gel-One shot, so I am hopeful I will get at least 6 more months pain relief from this recent shot. Dr. Shapiro is friendly, professional, and very efficient, and takes time to answer questions. I trust that he is providing the latest treatment options for my condition. The injection was painless, with only minor residual bruising for several days afterwards.”
