Dr. Shapiro was very kind and patient in answering all of my questions. The office itself is cozy and seemed to be well-run.

Dr. Shapiro is really great and kind. He is very thorough and explained to me all my questions. He has the art of bandaging and place it properly on my operated foot. Very efficient doctor and he took care of me very well. The whole staffs are really nice and very accommodating. I highly recommend Manhattan Podiatry. Excellent service!!!

Dr. Shapiro has a very gentle touch. Removed my stitches and I didn't feel anything.

I’ve been taking my son to Dr Shapiro for several weeks for treatment for ingrown nails. Although the procedures haven’t been pleasant, Dr Shapiro has been amazing. He explains everything thoroughly and his bedside manner is impeccable. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Shapiro is the best! Always a great experience with him, and the wonderful office staff. Dr. Shapiro did a great job last year when I needed a cheilectomy, my toe feels great and I can exercise just as before, and walk for miles. If you need a podiatrist, run don't walk to see Dr. Shapiro :) 7/2122 update***Saw Dr. Shapiro today for a developing issue related to my past injury and subsequent cheilectomy. He is fantastic, and always thorough. I would never see any other podiatrist. THE BEST!
