This was the best provider seen in a month filled with providers and hospitalizations. The most complete and caring quality of care (caught issues missed by other providers) and went out of the way to ensure quality of care going forward.

Description or options was generic, not specific to me. Good interim after emergency.

Terrible bedside manner. Interrupted. Brushed off questions I asked. Repeatedly looking at his watch. No compassion in explaining test results that were concerning.

Dr. Shapiro knew that all costs was coming from my pocket at this time. We discussed what procedure would be best for me. I thank him for that.

It was perfect!!

The urologist did not inform me of the results of his examination or of any action needed for some urination issues which I indicated on the questionnaire I filled out beforehand. This was the last time I see him because he's retiring. Apparently, I am in good condition, which is encouraging. He did ask if I had any questions, and I could have asked him at this point about the results of my exam.
