Ratings for Dr. James Shapiro
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.
DR. SHAP-HERO is, surely, A WANTED MAN! New York, London, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, etc., must ALL be clamoring for him to lead their Medical Teams... How fortunate we are to have this caring gentleman, here, in Edmonton! My husband's diagnosis of cancer was a most frightening time... At the initial meeting, Dr. Shapiro carefully apprised us of what to expect and he arranged for surgery to take place within a matter of d-a-y-s. Just prior to commencing surgery, Dr. Shapiro took the time to reassure his patient and to fill us in on details. As my husband was whisked into the Operating Room, I wept; ever-grateful for Dr. Shapiro's astounding medical acumen & surgical abilities... On a daily basis, 'Surgeon Shapiro' performs multiple, intricate surgeries of epic duration. He then, personally, in down-to-earth style, delivers news of the operation to family. Yes, Dr. Shapiro truly deserves the utmost respect from his community... and, beyond! We are humbled. Our family member was able to receive the highest standard of surgical expertise, from the highest qualified Surgeon of Oncology. THANK YOU, DR. SHAPIRO. So, HARRY POTTER! It's Time to Step Aside... The REAL WIZARD from the U.K.?? *DR. SHAP-HERO*... ALL THE WAY!
