Sidney was great in explaining anything I ask and was open on everything that was done. She is exceptional person and would and will go back to see her on anything pertaining to my surgery. She will be a great asset to your organization.

Staff is always friendly and efficient. Sydney explained and apologized for the delay in seeing me and why she was running behind for my appointment. She is always so friendly and easy to talk to. She does a great job. Have recommended Dr Shapiro and Sydney to several people for surgery. Highly recommend him and his office.
