Ratings for Dr. James Shapiro
Dr. Shapiro was amazing dealing with me regarding an emergency gallbladder operation, cleaning up another surgeons issues. he checked in everyday on rounds and twice on the day I was discharged. I found him to be very approachable and he explained everything to me answerinjg any questions I had.
Dr Shapiro was amazing. He was professional, and had expert advice. He always took the time to meet you and answer your questions personally. He also came saw me 5 minuters before surgery as well. He provided such excellent care. It gave me great comfort to know that this skilled surgeon was looking after me. His team of staff and excellent as well. All very knowledgeable, hardworking and providing great care for the patient. I would absolutely recommend this surgeon.
Dr. Shapiro is a busy surgeon and I've wait hours past my appointment time to see him but once you do, he's kind, gives you the information about your surgery, and to the point. The staff do their best but they seem stressed due to the busyness. I had my surgery date moved a few times but on the day of, I felt very comfortable and in good hands with Dr. Shapiro and his team, the follow up appointment was a long wait and a short visit as my surgery recovery went well.
He was kind, though a little sharp with his residents. Had a liver transplant. Post-op was bumpy with infection (I hear he is known for that compared to the other liver transplant surgeons) . He also dismissed a major issue we questioned, which was severe requiring further surgery when another surgeon came on service. The other two liver surgeons are better. I think some posters are confusing their stress/exhilaration of still being alive with thoughts that this man is the best that it gets
World-famed surgeon saw me within 4 days after MRI and Endoscopy plus FNA, gave a quick, clear diagnosis and prognosis, smiled, and set up follow-up. I was in excellent hands. Not a second wasted, full medical terms: treated me as a thinking adult. A+
Dr. Shapiro saved my husband's life, not once, but twice. He received liver transplants in December 2004 and again in March 2016 due to recurring liver disease. This man is absolutely amazing....brilliant....extraordinary. We are so thankful and blessed to have had him as our surgeon. Thank you Dr. Shapiro.
