Been going to Dr. Shapiro for a few years now. I've always been met with helpful, welcoming, and friendly faces. Charmane and Afshin were helpful from check in to purchasing a new pair of glasses. They were patient and kind with me the entire time. I would definitely recommend to family and friends to come here.
