Dr. Shapiro is expert in helping patients learn if medication would be helpful to their mental health. If you are taking medication, he will assess it's efficacy and make learned suggestions about medications he thinks will help you. His psychopharmalogical knowledge is very deep. He listens, asks great questions and is very compassionate. As a past and current patient, I highly recommend Dr. Shapiro.
