My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Over the years, I have treated patients with complex internal medicine and cardiac conditions, and these experiences have led me to the strong belief that the most effective kind of medical care is prevention. Hence, my practice philosophy has evolved into a proactive, collaborative approach to wellness. The MDVIP practice model enables the time and structure to effectively carry out this philosophy. I am passionate about providing the highest quality, patient-centered clinical care.

After completing my undergraduate studies at Washington University in St. Louis, I received both my MD and PhD from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The majority of my postgraduate training was at Columbia University Medical Center in New York. After completing an internal medicine residency, I remained on faculty at Columbia for a year where I served as a chief resident in the Department of Medicine. I completed a general cardiology fellowship at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City before returning to Columbia for a fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology.

My practice is located in Chevy Chase, Maryland, walking distance from the DC Metro Friendship Heights stop. 24 hour coverage and same-day appointments are tenets of my practice model. I have hospital privileges at Suburban Hospital, Sibley Memorial Hospital and George Washington University Hospital, where I am an Assistant Professor of Medicine. I have been named as a Top Doctor in Washingtonian Magazine since 2014.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Shapiro

from Richard in MD March 27, 2020 for Scott Shapiro, MD, PhD

Recently I was hospitalized for observation. Dr. Shapiro came in on a Saturday to see me although I was being taken care of by the hospital staff. The fact that he took off time from his family to see me although I was being taken care of was beyond the call of duty.
Also he is very good at connecting me with the appropriate specialists if I need one.

I moved here from NYC 3 years ago and had been unable to find an internist who I liked and who had the personal tome to give me .
I was referred to Dr. Shapiro through a friend and I must say, I am much less anxious knowing I have someone who is sincerely concerned about my Health and the doctors I surround myself with
I have never had an MDVIP before as it was never necessary but… See more

I can reach him whenever I need him, he responds immediately no matter where is he is (last year he was out of the country and still responded to an urgent email within the hour) and he does what is necessary and does not overdo it. My blood pressure was recently elevated and he tried a few regimens until we got it… See more

My wife and I have found him to be very intelligent , caring and personable Doctor..We feel very lucky to have him as our Physician.

from Arleen in MD March 8, 2018 for Scott Shapiro, MD, PhD

My husband and I were involved in a three car collision on I95 in Georgia leaving Florida in advance of hurricane Irma. Although our car was totaled, everyone was able to walk out of their cars and no one needed hospitalization. While trying to secure a rental car to get us back home to Maryland, I called Dr. Shapiro and told him I thought my husband and I should be checked out. His… See more

from Eric in MD February 28, 2018 for Scott Shapiro, MD, PhD

My life would be very different (or even non-existent) without Dr Shapiros action and keen insight. I feel that I have a very positive and strong relationship with him, and hope that Im granted several more years in his care.
