We feel fortunate to have received reflections from our patients about how Dr. Gary S. Shapiro of Shapiro Sports Medicine has helped them. Here are some of our favorites:

Gary Scheid, Professional Golfer

"After repairing a torn ACL and meniscus, I can report excellent results under Dr. Shapiro's care. I am playing tournament golf again and feel fantastic with the ability and use of my knee." 

Ramin Kouzehkanani, Former Professional Soccer Athlete

"I could not be happier that I chose Dr. Gary Shapiro to repair my torn ACL in December 2013. What strikes me most about Dr. Shapiro is his unassuming and humble brilliance. He's not just good, he's the best."

Casey Kelly, Professional Baseball Player

"Dr. Shapiro did a great job on my elbow, which allowed me to play baseball during my senior year of high school. This led to me becoming the #1 draft choice of the Boston Red Sox in the 2008 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft."

From Vitals.com:

I am a physician in Sarasota with four children who have all been active in sports as they grew up. Dr. Shapiro is the only sports medicine orthopedist I have taken them to when they have been injured. Over the past 20 years that has accounted for many visits. I and my children have great confidence in his opinion and treatment. He is an excellent orthopedist in all respects.  – David L. Mobley

I was referred to his office for a second evaluation. If you’re quick to judge, you won't wait for the results. Dr. G found a break the first Dr. missed…He proved to be determined to see a complete recovery with complete satisfaction as to what I saw and felt about the outcome…I recommend [him] to everyone! And I'm a cranky Southern woman who doesn't appease easy. Again, thank you Dr. G!!! And Lori, his physical therapy miracle worker!!!  – Satisfied

My son broke his leg, and Dr. Shapiro handled everything beautifully. He made sure everything was done in a caring, professional manner. We are extremely pleased with his experience and ability to handle all issues that came up.  – Hagan
