Ratings for Dr. Jodi Shapiro
She was my OB for both my children and I love her. She is fast and has a dry sense of humor but when I had to talk to her she took the time. My last pregnancy I had high blood pressure and she always made sure it was under control. Kerri the admin assistance is amazing and so are the others that took care of me.
Jodi is knowledgeable and experienced, I'm sure- how else do you get to where you are in one of the best obstetrics hospitals in the world. In a total of 2 visits, she spent approximately 4 minutes with me, was dismissive with my concerns, and rude and sarcastic with me. I was left feeling hurt and expected to trust what she said based on face value. I had to plead for explanations and was made to feel like my concerns were petty. I would not recommend her and will next time go with a midwife. Moreover, Kerri, the admin assistant and the nurse, Anne, are super, they are Jodi's saving grace.
Dr. Shapiro, I can't speak to any of the usual aspects that most readers would want to take into account when considering a doctor. She was not our primary Dr. But I must tell this story: Our delivery was quite difficult. Our son was struggling... heart rate plummeting... our primary called in Dr. Shapiro. She walked in and took control of the room and in our most desparate and firghtening moment, rescued us and our son. Say what you will about bluntness, rushing around, etc. She may be rushing off to save a kids life and last Sunday that kid was ours! Helpfulness - Saved our kid's life! Punctuality - Precisely when we needed her! Knowledge - Knew exactly what to do and did it exactly when we needed it!
I was reggered to dr shapiro by my GP. Her receptionist Carrie is wonderful, but Jodi on the other hand is blunt and quick to rush you out. She dismissed any concerns or questions I had and made feel like it was never a worry. My son was 3 weeks early so she did not deliver my baby, another wonderful Dr did. The next day when I was in recovery Jodi came by to see me, never asked how it went didn’t even take one look at my son. My husband and I were both so disappointed with her. We will be using a midwife next time
Okay, so I read many of the comments, and they are mostly all true. Dr Shapiro is great, for me, that does mean knowledgeable, competent, with your interest at heart. She's also quite funny, she is straight forward, and occasionally rather direct, which at times does not come across warm and fuzzy. Truth, I think we are very fortunate to have such a great doctor here in Canada. Personally, as much as I like the softer approach, I rather have someone that can be a touch smug 5% of the time, but is considerate and knows what they are doing 95% of the time.
I found Jodi to be an excellent doctor. She is straight and to the point, but extremely knowledgable and I always felt like I was in good hands. My whole experience was great. Carrie at reception is amazing! And Jodi's nurse Anne was lovely and very helpful. Anne provides a bit more comfort if that is what you need. Overall I would highly recommend this team!
I guess everyone wants a different kind of doctor...but I really liked her. I felt like I was in VERY competent hands and really...isn't that the most important thing? I found her to be very focused and to the point. No, there wasn't a lot of handholding I guess, but I felt like she was on top of my file, that she knew what was going on, and that she was looking after my best interests. Plans were made, and when things developed differently than planned, she adjusted. Makes sense to me. I saw compassion, I saw humour, and I saw competence. I highly recommend her.
